Since I purchased my '95 LWB in November 2008, the cruise control hasn't worked. I recently ran through the RAVE Manual cruise control test from start to finish. The test concluded that the ECU was at fault. I ordered a new ECU from Rovers North. I just returned from testing it out and the cruise still does not work.

Is there something that needs to be checked that the RAVE Manual test doesn't take into account? I'm at a loss. I don't know where to go from here.

This may sound daft but it could be the switch. As the light and actual activator are on different contacts just because the light is on it does not mean the circuit is activated if there is an intermittent connection fault. Pipework and pump would be next guess.

:pray:

All that has been checked through the RAVE Manual test. Every single function of the cruise control per the test has been checked and it all check out - switches (steering wheel, dashboard, and brake pedal), wiring, pump, wheel sensors, etc. After running through the 10+ step test, the RAVE manual basically stated if you've got this far and everything was within the specs of the RAVE manual, the ECU is bad.

I guess I'll run back through the test.

FINALLY! I got the cruise control working. After running through the test again, everything still pointed to the ECU. I decided to pull the pump to make sure it was creating enough vacuum. Turns out the vacuum line was hooked up to the exhaust valve, not the vacuum. LOL. Good Lord. After swapping the line, it works great. I tried my old ECU and it was dead. So at least I didn't waste the $100 on the new ECU. All is well now and I'm a happy camper.
