    Cruise control cuts out

    Every so often I'll be cruising down the highway and the cruise control will cut out speed drops and then comes back. Anyone else experience that?

    Can this thread be revived???

    I am having the same issue. Could it be a bad "set / resume" button?

    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

    Yes, the thread can be revived. In fact, it is preferred over starting new threads for the same issues.

    Yes, it could be the button. But the only way to diagnose electrical issues is to test each component.

    Easiest way to diagnose the problem, is to drive the car with the HDS connected and take a diagnostic snap shot when the problem occurs.

    Unfortunately, I don't have any diagnostic tools. This doesn't seem to be a very common problem, but what I have found seems to point to a bad clutch switch. The switch is possible engaging somehow and cancelling the cruise.

    The clutch and brake switches can only cancel the cruise control after a speed has been set.
    A faulty input from either switch cannot reset the cruise control speed.

    What year and model Civic?
    Do you have any electrical mods?
    When did the problem start? days or weeks ago?
    Are the tail/brake lights working properly?

    Intermittent problems are difficult to diagnose.
    Unless there is a symptom pattern failure. In that case your local dealer may know exactly what is wrong; have you called the dealer and inquired about the problem?

    I have the same issue with my 2003 Honda accord. I replaced the brake sensor and that fixed it. I'm not sure for the civics tho, I dont have that problem with my SI.

    It's a '13 Civic Si that is completely stock. The taillights work with no issues as far as I know. I first noticed this a couple month's ago. It's a very intermittent problem, although it does seem to happen more when the car goes over rough patches of highway.

    Intermittent problems are difficult and frustrating for both you and the dealer Tech trying to diagnose it.
    You can throw parts at the problem based on educated guessing: brake and clutch pedal position switches, the main set/resume/cancel switch, etc... but that will get expensive quick.

    Are you positive the cruise control cancels, then resets without an input from you?

    You mention the problem occurs on rough roads. How repeatable is the problem under rough road conditions?

    If I had to guess, I would check the ABS sensors. If they were tugged on when changing brakes, they might be the cause. This would usually prompt an ABS light on the dash though.
    Are there any CEL/ABS lights to help diagnose the issue? Also are you going above 35 mph when attempting to set CC? (I didn't read the old posts, so pardon me if this is a broken record).
