Section 10.7
Cruise Control Inoperative

Before using this procedure, all basic mechanical checks and physical inspections should have been performed with no problem found. Also the diagnosis of the DDEC system in Section 9 referred you to this section.‪

Section 10.7.1
Determine Type of Cruise Control System

Perform the following to determine the type of cruise control system:‪

  1. Check that this is a DDEC cruise control system.
  2. Turn ignition ON.
  3. Plug DDR into DDL connector.
  4. Select calibration configuration (cruise control).
  5. Is cruise control enabled?
    1. If cruise control is enabled, refer to "10.7.3 Check Pin Assignments" .
    2. If cruise is not enabled, refer to DDEC III Installation and Application manual, 7SA800, for requirements of installing cruise control.

Section 10.7.2
Check ECM Connectors

Perform the following to check the ECM connectors:‪

  1. Disconnect the vehicle harness connector at the ECM.
  2. Check the terminals at the ECM vehicle harness connector (both ECM and harness side) for damaged, corroded, or unseated pin or sockets.
    1. If terminals and connectors are not damaged, reprogram the ECM. Refer to "10.7.16 Verify Repairs" .
    2. If the terminals or connectors are damaged, repair them. Refer to "10.7.16 Verify Repairs" .

Section 10.7.3
Check Pin Assignments

Perform the following to check pin assignments:‪

  1. Turn ignition ON.
  2. Plug in the DDR.
  3. Select calibration configuration (ECM Ins/Outs).
  4. Write/print pin assignments.
    1. An example listed in Table "Pin Assignments" shows pins, wires and functions. Refer to "10.7.4 Checking Out of Cruise Control Switch and Wiring" .

Section 10.7.4
Checking Out of Cruise Control Switch and Wiring

To speed up the checking out of cruise control switches, quick check tables have been developed. These tests are to be run with the ignition ON, and the engine not running. A DDR must be plugged into the connector. All three quick check tables must be gone through to completely check out the cruise control wiring and switches.‪

For Example: Listed in Table "Cruise Control Quick Check Table I, Check Out Cruise Enable Switch and Wiring (Ignition ON Not Running)" , step 2, you would do the following:‪

  1. Ignition ON; engine not running; DDR plugged in.
  2. Turn the cruise enable switch to ON.
  3. Select switch/light status on the DDR.
  4. Note the DDR display; if ON, check out brake and clutch switch as listed in Table "Cruise Control Quick Check Table II, Check Out Brake and Clutch Switch and Wiring (Ignition ON Not Running)" .
