#10 of 78 2002 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE -- CRUISE CONTROL INTERMITTEN (re my Aug 12 msg)
Oct 01, 2007 (2:09 pm)
Have had my 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee in the shop 6-7 times in the past month and a half for cruise control problems($200 diagnostics charge) It would set a code in the computer, but as soon as you'd turn off the ignition the computer would reset with no code. When they finally did catch the code while the engine was still running, the code could not be identified (no one including tech support could trouble shoot the codes). The PCM was replaced(at no charge), but the cruise still cut out when test driven afterwards. FINALLY!!! Somebody started checking different switches and modules/relays that effect the cruise control. It was determined the the brake switch was not sending the correct signal to the PCM and/or cruise control assembly. I was told that the brake switch was replaced, and now everything seems to be working at this time. I have been driving the vehicle for about 6 days now(that's the longest I've had it out of the shop in the past month and a half. I'll keep my finger crossed.
#11 of 78 Add on cruise control to 2000 jp sport?

I have recently purchased my third jeep. Unfortunately, it did not come with cruise control. It helps a lot on long trips because of an old back injury. I understand no dealer offers this anymore, but how about an aftermarket one. Also, any effect on the computer on a 2000 jeep cherokee?
#12 of 78 Adding Cruise Control to 2000 jp sport

To Steve and Tidester. I received no input on my request for info on adding on a cruise control,so I decided to research it on my own.
I started on page one, and have been reading the many Jeep questions. I finally found an answer to a post that was made Aug 29th,'05. It seems OEM not available, and after markets unsure of effect on a Jeep computer.
I like thank both Steve and Tidester for such a vast array of info that covers Cherokees from bumper to bumper.
This forum has taught me so much in so short a time how to properly care and maintain my Cherokee for years to come.
For all the regulars who contribute their knowledge on various subjects, I also would give thanks to them.
I'm only half way through 2200 plus questions and comments, but I look forward to reading them all.

Read it carefully - there's going to be a quiz on it!
Seriously, thanks for the kind words and we're gratified that you find the Forums so helpful.

I'm having this same problem. I stopped by Advance to get a brake switch, but it wasn't in their parts listing, and searching some of the online parts places hasn't turned anything up either. Does anyone know the actual name for this part?
#17 of 78 cruise is stuck on
Dec 27, 2007 (8:35 am)
My girlfriend's parents gave her a '96 Cherokee and she just used the cruise the first time and now she can't turn it off! When she starts the motor it revs so high she has to turn it off immediately,it sounds like the motor is running at 10,000 rpm. Is there a way to disconnect the cruise and bypass sensors and just not use the cruise? Any help is much appreciated.
