Thread: Cruise control not working

    Default Cruise control not working

    Hi guys

    03 GTI



    The cruise control does not work (just started not working). The dash light comes on when switched to the on position but then when I slide to set it does not engage the cruise control.

    Please tell me there is an easy solution.....

    thanks

    Read the owners manual, I think there is a quick reset for it... (Not saying read the manual to be mean, just can't remember the process)

    If that doesn't work, might need the switch rebuilt.

    Unfortunately my car did not come with an owners manual...is it on line some where? and/or where can I order a new one? I have been meaning to any way.

    What is involved in rebuilding the switch? Is that a DIY? Vortex have a step by step?

    thanks for the reply

    More than likely the brake light switch, which is a free fix since it's a factory recall.

    And should there be any issues with the dealer or just so you know how, Brake Light switch install:
