    Cruise is not working on my 89 Jimmy,What is the most likely cause, or where do I start looking?
    Thanks, Keith

    You're going to laugh at this one, but I fixed mine ('89) by simply adjusting the brake light switch. My mechanic suggested I try this before I actually brought it in. It was not aligned properly with the pedal, has worked great ever since.

    The cruise thing that sits up by the carb (or TBI whatever it may be) has a diaphram on it... could be punctured.

    Had to replace the turn signal lever on mine. The one of cruise control wires broke inside its insulation right where it comes out of the stalk from all the years of flexing. It started by turning off any time I used the blinker to change lanes, then eventually quit working altogether. Used a wiring diagram and a test light to track down the electrical problem.
