2003 Newmar DS Spartan cruse control won't tune on

Well last trip the cruse quit working, thought it might be in the smart wheel but when we got home I did a trouble shooting on the module and it and the wheel are working fine all relays work on all functions and wiper controls on the right side work good. Have checked all fuses anyone have any ideas?

Check all of your lights. This is often linked to the brake lights. On some vehicle electronics, If any of those are out, cruise control will not operate.

On my Spartan chassis there are two switches on the brake pedal. On controls the brake lights the other cancels the cruise. Check these for proper adjustment.

I had just picked up a 98 DS 3865 earlier this year. the previous owner installed a bunch of LED bulbs and lamp assemblies. the British made cruise control was totally nonfunctional as the LEDs didn't allow the voltage on the cold side of the + circuit for brake lights to drop to ground state. interesting to note that I installed a hitch brake light assy with incandescent lamps in it and the problem went away. several other issues involving the left turn signal canceling the CC when running lights are on. I'm going to strip out the wiring the young lad had done on the LEDs and do it right to solve that issue. some of the lights are on whenever the key is in run. interesting winter projects ahead. but for now, after a 4,500 trip to NH and back to CO, the old cruise control is operating very accurately and hold set speed quite well.

I was just cruzin through here on spartan due to the fact that my next dp might be on a spartan, had a couple of monaco roadmasters( terrible chassis), any way just to add something here to the cc issue, ford chassis use the brake light circuit as a pull up resistor so the cc system will cancel when brakes are apied, ford sends a "trace voltage" through the stoplamp cicuit to insure its working. I have had to help out some ford chassis where the customer installed led taillamps AND center mounted stop lamp, just leave the case as indacasent and cc will work.

thanks for the reply but have not installed leds, well not in taillights. My brother in law has insight and we will check it out with it and see what the problem is. Will check back when problem found (hopefully). God bless and have a happy thanksgiving. OH AND BUY THE WAY WE LOVE THE SPARTAN CHASSIS, I HAVE HAD FL AND RM AND THIS IS A VERY WELL ENGINEERED CHASSIS AND COACH.
