Re: EF Fairmont Cruise control

Your cruise control modulator may be starting to die, I had mine replaced 12 months ago it was doing something similar to what you are explaining.
But it could also be a loose wire to your accel set switch.

Re: EF Fairmont Cruise control

Mine does the same thing on the clutch pedal.
I have to pull the pedal up with my foot to set the cruise.
The switch is located behind the brake pedel shaft.

Re: EF Fairmont Cruise control

Mine did the same and it turned out to be the brake pressure switch on the master cylinder. Test it by removing the connector and jumping the terminals in the wire with a thin piece of wire and go for a drive (the brake pressure switch is normally closed and failed open).
Also, it wouldn't work with the lights on once after a service when the bogan put a stop/tail globe in backwards (caused a backfeed through the stoplamp circuit).

Cheers
