I had a problem with Air Bag light, CC, horn and radio controls on my 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Each one went out one at a time. I replaced the clockspring which transfers all controls from the steering wheel to the rest of the car. Now all of the controls work and the airbag light is off. The CC light now comes on but the cruise control still does not work. It was not working before the clockspring went out. If you turn on your CC and the light does not come on and/or the airbag light is on, then it is most likely the clockspring. I think my CC problem is vacuum related and still have to take a look at it.
BEWARE - if you decide to replace the clockspring, make sure you get a very good steering wheel or gear puller. The one I bought from Kragen that was made for this car snapped. I got an 8 way reversible 2/3 jaw puller from Napa that did the trick.

Just bought a 2000 GC two weeks ago. Yesterday the vent selector stopped working the the CC went out. After reading all the post, checked the vacuum hose and found one end off. Thanks,

#61 of 78 2001 GRAND CHEROKEE Cruise Control rpm jump
Jan 16, 2011 (5:43 pm)
2001 jeep Grand Cherokee cruise control works good, but when driving with cruise set and outside air temp goes below 40 degrees, the engine rpm will jump 300 rpm and drop back to where it was running as set. The driving speed will not change, only rpm increase. I can duplicate the same jump by hitting the CANCEL button and instantly hitting the RESUME button, allowing the engine to increase rpm's before catching again. Vacuum lines were replaced back in the summer when AC would not work and Cruise would show some of same symptoms in the summer, solving that problem, but not this. Any ideas of what to check?

That sounds more like the torque converter locking and unlocking.... than a problem with the cruise control.. (not an expert)

Only does it when cruise is on. I have been driving from Tennessee to Houston TX several times and I can watch the outside temp gage when traveling south, as it gets above 40 degrees, problem goes away. When I return, as outside temp goes to 39 degrees, jump comes back. I turn cruise control off and hold rpms constant, it never jumps, runs smooth. Can not find any problem. Any other suggestions?

#67 of 78 2006 Jeep Grand Cheerokee Crusie Ccntrol Issues
May 27, 2011 (9:40 am)
My 2006 Jeeps cruise control isnít working. When I hit the button the set the speed the computer accelerates it to insane speeds. It wonít stay at one set speed.
Also, when I turn the interior dash lights to a brighter setting they flash all the time and itís very distracting. I have to turn the dimmer down very low where itís sometimes makes the dash hard to see.
Does anyone know how to resolve these issues? Iím assuming they both can be related maybe some with the computer?
