cruise control problem

After having rountine maintenance done, my cruise control stopped working. Coinsidence perhaps.
When I push the button to engage the cruise the light does not come on and nothing works.
I check the fuse and it is fine.
Any suggestions?

You don't say what year, but on my 99 Forester it's very easy to disconnect the vacuum supply line to the cruise control actuator. I've done it twice at least.

good luck

Vacuum line connection is on the top of the cruise control actuator near midpoint.

Vacuum line comes from engine intake manifold to the cruise control actuator.

good luck

OK I looked and didn't have any luck.
My forester is a 2002.
I've been trying to find some sort of engine diagram to give me an idea as to where to look.
Any suggestions as to where to go online to fine this info?

Couldn't find a pic on site.

My e-manual covers models 99-02 which suggests they are all the same.

Check for linkage (rubber sleeved cable) between throttle plate actuator cam and cruise control actuator. It runs from throttle plate cam behind the throttle body air box to the actuator on the firewall in front of pax seat. Cruise control actuator uses vacuum to pull on the throttle through the cable link.

If you can't find this, you need more help than I can supply.

good luck
