I know during the recall some dealerships just unplugged the unit instead of fixing it. Maybe thats what happened to yours?

for the recall all they did is splice a fuse in right near the master cylinder....go check it out, its easy to spot

and if that fuse did blow, check it there

Open the hood and on the front of the master cylinder there will be a switch with a plug on it. Then somewhere under the hood there will be a box with a cable running from it to the throttle body.

To the original poster: If you've got big feet and wear boots you may want to look at the BPP switch and coonector. It's located on the brake pedal.

Enter self-test diagnostics by depressing the speed control OFF switch while turning the ignition key ON, making sure the engine does not start and is not running. The speed control indicator on the instrument panel
will flash once to indicate that speed control module entered the diagnostic mode. Five additional flashes at this point indicate a defective speed control servo. Release the OFF switch.
Press the remaining switches in this sequence: ON, RESUME, COAST and SET/ACCEL.
If the ON switch is not depressed within five seconds after entering the diagnostics mode, the module times out and the procedure must be started over.
The speed control indicator lamp will flash as each switch is depressed. Press each switch in the sequence immediately after the indicator light goes out for the previous switch.
NOTE: There will be a slight delay when the last button is pressed and the lamp flashes.

A lamp flash with the last button (SET/ACCEL) indicates that the static test passed. If the lamp does not flash with the last button and there are no additional flashes of the lamp, the switch is defective.
If the lamp does not flash with the last button, and additional flashes occur, follow the chart below for trouble codes:
2 flashes - BPP defective, circuit is defective, brake applied, CPP switch or jumper (if equipped).
3 flashes - deactivator switch is open or circuit defective.
4 flashes - vehicle speed signal is out of range or circuit is defective
Immediately (.25 second delay) after the static test, the speed control servo does a dynamic test by automatically actuating the throttle lever from 8 mm (0.315 in) to 12 mm (0.472 in) of travel from the idle position. During the dynamic throttle pull, observe throttle movement to witness any binding or sticking of the speed control cable and correct connection of speed control cable to throttle lever. Make sure the throttle returns to the idle position.


ok so i did that test and got 2 flashes, where should i go from here? thanks

basically, they are saying to check the brake petal position switch, the clutch petal position switch, look for frayed/cut switch wires. Or if you do not have a manual, make sure the jumper is in place for the clutch petal position switch harness.

I doubt your brake is applied or else your tail lights would be on all the time.


good diagnostic info

Pay close attention to the green/red wires.
