    The cruise might be on a "convenience center" located somewhere above the gas pedal. Cars ended up with cruise on that circuit I believe.

    Why insist on counting when the ring gear has the tooth counts stamped in?

    I ripped out the convenience center from an '87 yesterday, all that was on it was the Hazzard flasher, horn relay, and buzzer. Start by checking all the fuses in the fuse panel, I think my CC was powered by a fuse labeled simply "20" (for the amperage). Mine also went into the front of the fuse block, the CC hot wire is pink/black.

    The cruise control is tied into the "Ignition" fuse on my 84. If the fuse boxes are the same I can email you a diagram of it.

    Id bet you $20.00 that you need a new "multi-function" switch. (the turn signal lever) that's what fixed mine, and so many others.... just do it..... it'll fix it !!!!

    Don't worry about the convenience center, at least in the '86, it has nothing to do with Cruise. Cruise used a box above the pedal assembly to control it. In the cruise control diagrams, I only saw a 2 amp fuse, but the diagram was kind of nonsensival. I'm sure the fuse was on the fuse panel, but they didn't mention it, and in the troubleshooting section (this is the GM manual) "check fuse" is not one of the steps.
