I ran into something weird the other day while on a road trip. I had my cruise control set at 70mph and it disengaged all of a sudden. I thought maybe i hit the button by mistake so I reengaged it. A short while after it disengaged again and this time the SET light was blinking and I couldn't reengage it. After shutting off the truck it would work for a really short while ( approx 2 mins ) and then the blinking SET light. I read in the manual it would blink if the system picks up a malfunction any idea what could be wrong? I also get the infamous VDC light on occasions problem too. Not sure if that matters.
I have the exact same problem with my 2005 Xterra. Am on a long 2500 mile trip and 250 miles into the trip, after a pit stop, the set light is flashing and the cruise is DOA. Other posts show check fuses . . . did that no joy. Just learned it might be the brake lamp switch, or the 3-switch package in the steering wheel. Anyone have any recommendations other than the shotgun approach of replacing everything?
its a sensor thats on top of your tranny thats going bad... can think of the name of it right now.... I had this issue on my old hardbody, I think it might be called the tps sensor.... Im just not sure lol if i remeber ill let you know I know its on top of the tranny though
