    I have a 91 LX, the cruise control works sporadically at best. I replaced the brake pedal switch 6 months ago. The CC dash switch lights up but when cc button is pushed its a crap shoot whether it will work..

    Check the shift position console switch.

    Is CEL code 17 thrown?

    The gear shifter has a position switch in the console.

    Here's the why:

    Reset the ECU by removing the Hazard fuse for 5 minutes. Does code 16 return after driving? Does code 17 show up?

    16 is a reoccurring code. 17 has not showed itself.

    So is this saying to replace the switch or is this just a rest of the switch?

    Removed the neutral switch, cleaned contacts, reset ECU, drove it still no luck, and code 16 showed again which according to my service book is a fuel injector issue which is a whole another matter..

    Is the car having any driveability issues? Code 16 generally causes no-start issues.

    The position switch must be tested with a multimeter. If you have one, you should be able to pinpoint the CC problem with a few different tests.

    Only start issue it had was when hot and left sitting for 10 minutes or so it would just crank with no start. After searching I found it was possibly a bad temp sensor, replaced it and no more hot start issues.

    I have a multi meter but not sure what I'm looking for or at....

    A no-start issue in combination with code 16 tells you to resolder the main relay or replace it.

    Are you willing to do some electrical tests with the multimeter if I guide you?

    It's the A/T gear shift position switch. The neutral switch is for a clutch/manual transmission.

    Removing the switch is not necessary but you may need to access and unplug it.

    Probably do this but need to troubleshoot first, don't want to throw $$$$ at it when it could be something else
