Cruise Control Problems

I'm having trouble with my Cruise Control in my 2002 Jeep Wrangler Sahara. When I turn it on, the light on the dashboard lights up. When I try to set the speed, it works for about 10-20 seconds, and then the cruise control light goes out, and I cannot get it to come back on until I turn off the ignition switch. I'm trying to determine what part I need to replace to eliminate this problem. Anyone have a similar problem, what did you do to fix it. [email protected]

The cruise control is controlled by a vacuum diaphragm.its sounds like you have a leak either in the diaphragm or in the vacuum line from the can test the diaphragm if you have a vacuum pump like one used for self bleeding brakes besides that just look closely at the vacuum line for any signs of a crack or chafing.since it does work for twenty seconds or so def. sounds like a vacuum leak.hope this helps

I'll give you my thoughts to test it, but since you can turn off the car and when you turn it on, it might be int he cruise control activation as postulated.

But, try this...your horn working? If not, the clock spring might be at fault. It governs the horn and cruise among other things. My cruise started to work intermittently. Replaced clock spring, fixed it. Just a thought.
