Question Answered: cruise control does not engage

Have 1995 Villager with similar problem. (Also, have a 2000 Villager with same set-up.) Was the little, nickel sized, "button" on the brake pedal which turns off the cruise control when depressing brake pedal. Check the button. Also, there probably is a brake light switch near it. When button breaks apart or becomes missing cruise control becomes in operative as the systems believes it is off due to the switch. Fix is to replace button or use two nickles taped to brake pedal to cover mountig hole where button belongs. Hole is big enough to allow plunger to pass through.

On the brake pedal is the brake light switch shut off "button" made of some sort of plastic, about the size of a nickel and could be either black or blue. It makes contact with the push button on the brake light switch. If the "button" is broken or missing the brake lights stay on. If the part is available replace the Button; if not two nickles taped to the pedal where the "button" belongs will solve the problem. Anything that will cause the switch plunger to retract will work. My book says the cruise control is also connected to this switch; nope. It has a switch of its own and can cause cruise control problems when the "button is broken/missing.

Two hoses feed water/coolant at the rear of throttle body; check these.
