Yet another "NEWBIE" question. I have recently lost my cruise control, 99 cummins 2500 Ram, at times it will click on but will not maintain, I have check vacuum lines and can not determine if there is a leak or not. Then there are other times it won't come on at all. Before I drop the cash for a "DEALER ITEM" only (Cruise COntrol Servo) I wanted to see if anyone had any other ideas. ITs driving me nuts not having it.
Thanks for the time and response.

well on my 03 f150 my cc and horn went out. i took it to my dealer and i was told it was a switch inside the steering wheel that controlled them, and if it gets worn out it stops working. hey put a new one in and it worked. might be the same problem for you,but its two different brand trucks, so you never know. what exactly is a cruise control servo?

The switch seems to work due to the occasional use, however I have found some informatin on the net about a servo that is housed under the batterbox and is a dealer item only....go figure....with a cost of around $200.00 and thought I would put this out before I spent the money on the part. The vac lines and servo are the three main things to check according to my limited knowledge. Anyhow not a bunch of reponse on this thread either. Bummer !!!

I'm having the same problem with mine. How do you check the vaccum lines?

yep i had the same problem with mine and it was a hole in the vaccuum line. the line is on the drivers side and goes to the vaccuum pump that sits right above the injection pump. the line is a small black plastic line. just trace it and see if there is a whole. if there is one i fixed mine by splicing in a rubber line that fit right over the old tube that i picked up for a couple bucks at the hardware store.
hope this helps:thumbsup
