Cruise control not working

Hi All
Had my SSR out for first time this year on Sunday for a 250 mile run. Only noticed the cruise control would not engage, may have been issue for a while, generally don't use cruise control much.

Any suggestion on what to check first ?

Try lifting up on the brake pedal while engaging the cruise control. Maybe the switch is stuck.

Have you changed the flasher module for LED lights to a LM-487? If so change to an LM-486.

If it's a 6 speed, pull up with your left foot on the clutch pedal as this also causes the cruise to disengage.

You could also try resetting it by pulling the fuse and putting it back in?

Had a similar issue that seemed to come and go....which was true, when the auto lights came on, cruise was inop....also no brake lights, turned out to be the flasher module for me! Easy test, turn headlights on and see if brake lights illuminate properly

What flasher module did you have? Was it one of the LED Flasher Modules?


Just curious. Josh

Yes, I put in the LM-487 and everything seemed great until I discovered when the DRLs switched to headlights the brake lights came on. I never used the cruise control so I can't comment on that. I had to pull the LM-487 and the LED bulbs until Ripshift hounded the maker to bring out the LM-486 specifically for the SSR. The maker(Novita) copyrighted the LM-486 name for the first time, to prevent cheap rip-offs from using that number, as they had with previous numbers.
Some people had had good luck with the LM-487, especially on '03 and '04 trucks, but not everyone. The LM-486 will work on all of them.

I will crawl my old butt under the dash and check. LED tail lights were in it when I bought it, I am pretty sure it HAD a 487 and I replaced it with a 486.

Not an issue since

I did some checks today
Pedal switch seems ok, did not check with multimeter, as breaklight are working fine.
The flasher unit I have may have been changed some time back as the lights were modified to by road legal here in Europe, i.e. Amber rear lights (leds) turn signal along with separate parking lights and stop lights.

See attached picture of flashed unit located under steering column.

Any advice appreciated

Haven't seen that GM unit, but labeled for trailering I suspect it's to take the additional load of trailer lights. When replacing bulbs with LEDs there is less load which that unit may not be designed for. The Tridon Novita LM-486 is available at all the autoparts chains here, but may not be over there since it was specifically for the SSR. It is available on fleabay however, and probably can be ordered by your local parts supplier.

I can't guarantee this will solve your problem but I suspect it will. In any case it can't hurt to have the right one.
