Cruise control not working?

Hi Guys

been through the forum but still cant get cruise control working?

when i switch it on it says cruise control on but it wont engage when i use the stalk

i have checked both clutch and brake switched with my solus and they are working, checked all functions on the stalk which is working and my cruise control isnt showing any faults in the ecu?

anyone have any ideas???

Re: Cruise control not working?

Ok......still having no luck with this

Really could do with some advise.....both clutch and brake pedal switches are working, green cruise control light is on and cruise control on message appears but it still wont work?

I have been back into it and shows no errors but i have noticed on my solus it says selected gear? does a 2009 bravo dynamic have a gear selector switch or does the ecu work it out?

Any ideas greatly appreciated as im stumped

Hi,
Does the Solus tell you the stalk switch status? If so is the up/down switch working OK?
I don't think the Bravo has a selected gear indication, if it's the same as the Croma it uses roadspeed and engine RPM to work it out.

One other thing,
How are you trying to engage it? On the Croma you have to hold the stalk UP "increase" or at least a second for it to engage.

Re: Cruise control not working?

Thanks for the reply Robert

Yes i have tested the functions of the stalk on the solus and they are all working
At least you have ruled out the gear selection switch

Re: Cruise control not working?

I had the same problem, everything appeared ok but would not engage. Bought new brake light switch from Euro car parts, fitted it, works a treat 😁. (they've a sale on at mo 56% of) its worth changing switch at under a tenner

Both functions on the brake light switch and the clutch switch test fine so i think ive ruled them out

Re: Cruise control not working?

Same here, but for less than a tenner, I changed it and hey presto, everything back to normal.
Ten minutes to change as well , no brainer for me

Just try the brake switch first. Top tip, cable tie your brake pedal back, makes it easier to change

Re: Cruise control not working?

The brake light switches are a common fault on the bravo, when ours was on its way out the fault was intermittent which could be why it tested ok?

Bit fiddle/awkward to change though.
