Cruise Control Off switch on Clutch fail

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to determine where the switch is on the clutch pedal to turn off the cruise control when it's depressed.  I didn't see it in the parts diagrams.  It's not working.  I have to remember to turn it off to down shift while in cruise control :-(

 

Any help with this would be much appreciated.

I use brake pedal 

Yea I just hit the cancel button when I have to downshift.  I thought it would be cool to actually fix it properly though.

It should turn off when you push the clutch in. Mine does but l never tried to figure out how it dos it. Mine does rev up a few hundred rpm before it disconnects. But normaly I hit the cacel button since l am slowing to down shift anyway.

I tested mine on the way to work this am. The first time the engine was under a little load. The engine revved and I hit cancel just shy of 2900 when it revved. I did it again under a ittle load and let it go and it climbed to 2900 and the cruise kicked off and went to idle. Did it one more time with the same results. So something is kicking mine off when depressing the clutch. Its not the clutch safety switch, l bypassed mine 15 years ago. Maybe the ECM does it when it sees the engine reving in the cruise state. It is a bit un nerving to watch the engine rev like that towards the redline but the cruise did shut off.

There is no switch on the clutch peddle; only a switch at the brake peddle is shown in the FSM wire diagrams section 8W-33-1.

If I remember correctly mine revs also and I have functional neutral safety switch. If I’m slowing to downshift anyway I just touch brake 

I meant to say the clutch safety switch or whatever it’s called

Its the switch that wont let you start your straight drive unless you push the clutch in. The 02 was the first and only truck l have ever had with one. It bothered me so I bypassed it. About a year later I reach in the window and start it. It is in reverse and starts. It takes off about 15 feet and hits the 30 yard dumpsters and pushes it off the pavement into the dirt and sits there with the rear wheels spinning when the dumpster wont move anymore. Just happy I had the hitch in the receiver or the bumper would have taken a beating.
