I have a 2003 B 2300 Mazda in my cruise control does not work on it. Every once in a while it will. The ABS light comes on a light to! Do I need to check fusesAnd if I do where are they at

by

Daryl, the wheel speed sensors are probably causing both issues. Have them tested and replace the bad one(s)

All you need to do is to take your foot off the gas pedal and step on the brake pedal while you’re driving all the way down only for one second; it will reset the cruise control and it will go back to work normal.

@nune, Jose, I will post some more or less generic/common reasons for cruise control to not function: Info found from links below.

Bad Fuse: Like many electronically controlled systems in your car, the cruise control has a corresponding fuse which will blow to protect the system if it senses a short circuit. When the fuse of for the cruise control blows, the cruise control will stop working altogether.

Failing Brake Pedal Switch: The brake pedal switch turns on the vehicles brake lights when it senses that the brake pedal has been pressed. Because cruise control systems have been designed to disengage when the brake pedal is pressed, the cruise control is wired to the brake pedal switch. If the brake pedal switch fails, the car may think the brakes are engaged and not allow the cruise control system to turn on.

Failing Speed Sensor: A speed sensor has many purposes including indicating the speed of the vehicle, regulating flow of fuel and ignition timing, and operating the cruise control. If the speed sensor fails the cruise control may stop working. You may also notice that the speedometer has stopped working and the engine has more difficulty when idling.

Damaged Vacuum Actuator/Hoses/Cable: On older vehicles, cruise control speed is maintained using a vacuum actuator and a cable connected to the throttle. A vehicle’s cruise control may stop working if the vacuum actuator has stopped working or if there is damage to the vacuum hoses. The system may also fail if the cable linking the actuator to the throttle is broken.

Check the links below for more troubleshooting of cruise control. Good luck. I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.

Check all your lights - if any of my brake light bulbs are blown, the cruise control won't engage. Weird but true.

i’m guessing that you have a blown globe in one of your lights. I’m also guessing that the lights and cruise and other dash controls are all linked to the one fuse, therefore when a light blows out it breaks the circuit and stops anything else on that relay from working…
