During a long road trip this past weekend, I discovered that my cruise control has decided to flake out. The Cruise Control light will display when I turn on the cruise control. However, the Cruise On light does not display, nor does the cruise engage when attempting to set the cruise. After several attempts, the cruise will engage and the Cruise On light will display. I am usually more successful using the "Resume" to re-engage the cruise, but that also does not work consistently.

Anyone had any prior experience with this and am I in for replacing the entire cruise control module?

Sometimes the cruse control buttons become dirty and the contacts inside don't make constant contact. Try using compressed air (like you use to clean computer keyboards). Spray it into and around all the buttons and see it makes a difference. If it is the problem, it's a lot cheaper fix that replacing the cruse control module.

hey fordman, try holding your clutch lever away from the handlebars when you engage the cruise control. we found the cruise control disengaging switch to be the culprit a lot of times. it is located under the clutch lever mounting bracket an usually emits a click noise when the lever is pulled or pushed. frank

You could try a good contact cleaner like LST or similar
