cruise control not working
 
Iíve hade my Hardbody 2wd xe for about 3 years now and the cruise control has never worked. I checked vacuum lines and connections and it all looked good. Is there any fuses or relays for it or anything else I can do to fix it thanks.

Also when I press the cruise button the green light turns on and when I press the button on the steering wheel nothing happens

There is a switch on the brake pedal and one of the clutch pedal, if you have a manual transmission. If either of those switches are disconnected or open it will cause a fail. There is a rubber stopper that the switches press against when the pedals are not depressed. These rubber stoppers will dry rot and fall out. When that happens the switches open as though the pedals are depressed. That's the first place I would look since you already checked the vacuum lines. Does your speedometer work properly too?

Yes it does. I have looked at that before but not throughly. I will tonight for sure. What does it look like?

They're just black rubber bumpers. Find the switches, the end of the switch opposite the connector should be resting on the rubber. If the rubber is missing the end of the switch will be sticking through a hole in the pedal.

Would this be different if it were an Automatic? I'm having same issue as OP.

The brake pedal switch could also be an issue on the automatics.

you should have 2 switch's, brk & cruise cancel, if I remember (correct me if I am wrong) brk sw has 4 pins & cruise has 2 pins, if your are missing the rubber stopper(s) you can tape a penny over the hole as a temp fix.. been there! lol
