Cruise Control quit working

good morning! I'm in the process of repairing the many annoying items that crop up with an older coach in preparation for full-timing starting in August/Sept. So I plan to take advantage of the vast knowledge available on the wonderful Monaco owners forum! Expect a few more posts like this over the coming days/weeks.

On my last trip my cruise control suddenly quit working. It is on, the dash light is on but speed won't set.
After an overnight stop it started working again for 3 or 4 hours, but quit working after stopping for fuel.
I've searched this forum, and there are a lot of helpful hints, but I'm having trouble finding the specific items to check.

One recommendation was to check the connections on the brake switches at the firewall. I'm somewhat competent mechanically but ignorant enough to not know what I'm looking for. Anyone have a picture handy, or have a detailed description of what I'm looking for?
Thanks in advance for your help!

On my coach if I have the exhaust brake switch on the cruise control will not set .

Other than that all I can suggest is to look down this page for a box of similar threads .

Good luck
Ray

Here is a link to the brake pedal that is on my rig, yours may be different
https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...B9omgSwQ8uadUX


The small switch part number is SM-1C-5R1WP205, I did a quick search and could not find, it is a Nason switch so you might have to call them for a replacment

Thanks all for the info. Other threads mention spade connectors for the cruise control, but I don't find any spade connections.
On another note, should the pedal and adjustable mechanism all be loose enough to move up and down a couple of inches when I lift the pedal? Could that be a factor?
Last, I notice that enabling my exhaust brake stops the cruise control, despite my user manual indicating it shouldn't behave that way. Perhaps that's a clue, I'm not sure. Just gathering everything I know to see if it gives any hints.

The pedal assembly should not move, I'd definitely tighten it up and then test your cruise issue.

Thanks! The brake assembly is solidly anchored at the firewall, so the plate and rubber piece don't move. The pedal and extender have a small amount of play side to side, and more significant movement up and down. The area is crowded so I haven't been able yet to find anything I can tighten to reduce the movement. Is there anything in particular I should be looking for, or tips on how to get access to what I need to tighten?

Cruise Control

I lived with an intermittent cruise control function for almost two years with several repair guys diagnosing with no solution and another who wanted to replace the unit on top and inside the dash. Finally found a guy who found a loose wire in the unit accessible from the top of the dash and no more problem. Your problem sounds exactly like the one I had.

The cruise circuit goes through the brake switch. I had a bad connection there. Itís accessed through the genny opening with the genny extended. The connections are spade terminals, not the ring terminals. Iíll look for a pic.

Thanks barmcd, the pic helps a lot. I don't find those spade connectors anywhere around my brake controller, so wondering if the configuration is different. I've attached a pic showing the brake controller, wiring and surrounding area, and I've got no spade connectors. Not certain what the equivalent wiring is on my rig, perhaps the clips shown. I re-seated the clips and plan to take a test drive later this week to see how things behave. I've tightened down and re-connected what I can find, but have no confidence I've found the root cause.

I've found that intermittent wire connections can usually be cured by removing the connector and applying DeoxIT D5 terminal cleaner.
One of our IRV2 members suggested removing all the fuses in the front electrical bay and spraying the terminals with cleaner and reinserting them. He said this cured his intermittent issues.

Hope you get it fixed.

I finally had opportunity to take the motorhome out for a test drive, and cruise is working again! Cleaning and re-connecting the wire clips in the picture above seems to have resolved the issue. one of the clips seemed a little loose beforehand.
thanks all for your help!
