#11 of 18 CRV Cruise Control Not Holding
Sep 15, 2009 (8:59 am)
2004 CRV AWD/AT 160k
Car works well overall. Cruise control will hold for 30 to 40 minutes, less on hills. Then sputters, light on dash goes out, and cruise shuts off and speed drops. Car still running. Main cruise switch still on, but must be turned off and then on again to reactivate cruise control. The cruise system will now only hold for 10 or less minutes.

Sounds more like a loose connection on the cancel switch on the steering wheel. Otherwise, it's a brake or clutch switch that's comming on momentarily.
The other, less desirable possibility is that the module that actuates the throttle is going bad. I think it's a stepper motor. IT might have an issue and is overheating after a while.

Speed buzzer??? Where do you live that they require a speed buzzer when you exceed 120kph? That's not terribly fast. Is this something that a insurance company will give you a break for installing the device? Are you from Canada?
I can only assume thsi is an aftermarket device that a good shop should be able to remove or disable. It's probably plugged into the ECU wiring harness wince it needs the speed information.
Honestly, I've never heard of such a device.

I live in Spain but my car was bought in Saudi Arabia, them my car was made in EEUU. Really it is horrible this noise. I think Honda shop could remove it via computer as tyhis sound comes from the Honda center.
Thanks a lot for your help,
#16 of 18 Cruise Control Mystery
Apr 22, 2010 (9:17 am)
I took my 97 CRV into the dealer, who said the module was shot. I got a salvage one on eBay ($35 as opposed to $350). The dashboard cc switch light turns on, but no dash display light comes on and no cruise control kicks in. Could it be the SET/RESUME switch? The odds of 2 modules being bad seem remote.
#17 of 18 Cruise Control and air bags?
Jun 24, 2010 (3:37 pm)
We just purchased a 2006 CRV in terrific condition. However, it has a reconstructed title because the air bags deployed and were never replaced. Also, the cruise control does not work. We checked the fuse and relay and both were fine, so took it to our trusted mechanic. After a thorough going-over he said the cruise control would not work until the air bags were replaced. Then the computer has to be re-set. Total cost, $3,500. We only paid $6,000 for the vehicle. Does this sound right that the cruise control would not function if the vehicle lacked air bags?

I would expect the 2 features to be unrelated. However, the fault code for the air bag system might trigger a general interlock to disable certain systems. It might be designed to discourage drivers from not repalcing aribag systems.
Personally I wouldn't drive a vehcile without airbags. The risk or neck and head injuries from impat to the windshield and/or stering column are very real.
Also, I'd besuprised if you could get insurnace on a vehcile without them. You might have any medical claims rejected by both your car insurance and you medical insurance. the insurance for the other diriver might also be able to reject certain claims.
Just all in all a bad idea. Get the car fixed! $10,000 in the end isn't a bad price for a 2006 in good condition otherwise. You might be able to get a regular title after the repairs are completed.
