Well, there's always something new going wrong on a RR it seems, mine's now back on the road but I noticed yesterday that the cruise control no longer works - it was working fine before my car went off the road due to a bust flywheel. The switch illuminates correctly but the the CC doesn't engage at all. Any tips on where I should start out looking for problems? Is there a common cause of this fault?

Cheers

Cruise Control

I had already searched but didn't find a definitive answer, thanks anyway.
To the other posters, cheers for the tips, at least I know have an idea where to start :)

Here's your spoonfeeding for the day: http://www.rangerovers.net/repairdetail ... ntrol.html

Learn to search better. I find it hard to believe you actually did search as this topic comes up pretty much every week on here.

Thanks for the spoonfeed, I appreciate the help - as mentioned, I did do a search, obviously not a very successful one, sorry if this trod on your toes.

Failure usually caused by an air leak. Check the vacuum hoses, T-piece for damage. Give the actuator a good SUCK to make sure there isn't a puncture. :lol:

There is a very comprehensive troubleshooting and testing procedure for this in RAVE. All you need is a multimeter, a few jumpers, and a good deal of patience. I'm still working my way through it - I currently have the same problem you do and have already replaced all the vac lines with no change. So testing each component is the next step....

It turned out to be an easy fix, cheers to all for the tips, the problem was a split hose next to the "T" piece, I managed to find a piece of suitable piping and it's fixed now.

The cruise control fixits on the main website are a great resource. When I bought my 99 4.0, the cruise was inop and the prior owner had a quote of $300 from the dealership to fix it. I read the fixit on here, found a cracked hose, did a 5-minute fix, and now my cruise works fine.

Thanks for that - as you'll see from my post count I'm very much a newbie and I hadn't spotted the how-to's on the main site, that's a great resource!

Just so that you all dont get to excited but the switch located on the brake pedal is also another weak point, the locating tab on one side likes to break off if you pull to much on the pipe that goes to the T piece.

The cruise control switch on the peadl is relatively cheap compared to the rest of the vehicle
So much so I keep a few of them in stock along with the brake light switch that likes to now and then throw up a ABS fault
