Troubleshooting cruise control
We are full time RVers - I can see the sensor on top of the differential, but can't get under the truck to get to it because we're in an RV park and the truck is too close to the ground (or my stomach is too high off the ground) so I'll have to pull the truck up on some blocks tomorrow to get more clearance.
I did try the self test holding the OFF button down while turning on the key, and the cruise light on the dash DID NOT light up at all. I checked the wire that goes to the clock spring in the steering wheel and it IS hot, so that makes me think the steering wheel switches are probably OK.
I plan to keep this truck forever - it is 12 years old now and has only 68,000 miles on her. What model diagnostic device is the best and where do I get one?
thanks for the help - I plan to post photos AND the solution when I (we) find it.
