Cruise control FIXED!!

Hi Everyone

So I had an issue with my cruise control where it would work intermittently then just packed up entirely, I found the fault to be caused but one of the clutch switches which I tested on a multimeter.

I have replaced the clutch switch and works evertime now without fail, also I did have issues with the squeaky clutch which normally i would douse with lube but since changing the switch seems to have disappeared so would assume that it was linked.

I have made a quick YouTube video showing the faulty part in question.

You can normally spray contact cleaner inside the switch down the side of the plunger. A load of black crap will come out and it'll normally start working again.

Hondacivicnut I did try cleaning it up everywhere possible with electrical cleaner and just wouldn't have it unfortunately.

Did u push the plunger down and spray inside that with electrical cleaner. Hondacivicnut told me three times till I realised what he meant and when I did do it, it fixed the problem entirely

Hi there, sorry for reviving an old thread. Where did you get the switch and for how much (if not from Honda). Thanks mate!

I'm fairly certain that changing gear, thus using the clutch, does not switch off ACC on my 10G. That's without going out to double check, but I will later and report back.
Touching the brake pedal certainly does.
