My Cruise Control doesn't work on my 93, has anybody trouble shot this before? What's a good place to start??

Thanks

Got the same problem on my 88 vert and have yet to figure it out. Chiltons and Haynes do not cover that. If you figure it out, let me know.

There are a couple of things that can cause this. If your cruise and horn don't work(or airbag if you have a 90 and newer model) then that's an indication of a damaged contact behind the wheel. Otherwise it's probably a dissconnected wire on the throttle body, or a fried cruise control brain. The first is easy to check, just take a look at the bottom of the throttle body and make sure that both cables are connected. The brain, I believe is located behind the drivers side kick panel. You could probably get one of these cheep from a yard since the counter guy wouldn't know what it is. Though, it's a crap shoot as to whether or not it's gonna work. I'd check the contact plate, and pins behind the wheel first to make sure they are all in place and functioning, then replace the brain.
