Cruise Control Switch won't stay in
Time out you two, and you two know which two I'm referring to. If the cruise light illuminates when the cruise on/off button is depressed the actual " contacts " are making contact, closing the circuit and the cruise is ready to be set. If the switch will not stay depressed on its own, then there is an issue with the little tensioned latching parts that make and break the contact. Sometimes the tensioned latching/ratcheting mechanism is just dry and the parts are stuck. When and if that's the case, a little lube hitting the right spot will free things up. Yes, I said " lube " ,not " cleaner". Why WD-40 ? Why not ? It's harmless to most, if not all, surfaces. It's basically fish oil and there is where the lubrication part comes . That being said, I don't know how much penetration one can get into the cruise switch. But if anything has a chance to work its way into the recesses of the switch, I'm betting that fish oil can. That's my story and I'm stinking with it.
