Default Problem with cruise control

Hello all,

I am hoping some one can help me with my problem.

My cruse control will not "set". I replaced the worn out rubber on the clutch and Nissan tell me that all the sensors work.
While driving along and I hit set nothing happens but if I hold the gear stick across while driving it will engage then if I let it go it cuts out.

Is there a sensor in the gear box and how do I fix it?

Thanks

Usually a sensor in the brakes somewhere... mine started cutting out every now and then, i found if i went over a bump, or turned slightly to the left. Try the search function, there are a few possibilities as to what it might be.

Yeah no sensors on the box as far as I know but you will have switches on brakes and clutch and they are in series so if either isnt right it wont set.

They have a netrual position sensor in the gearbox. These clap out so is most likely the problem. The clock springs in the steering wheel can also cause problems i have had two replaced.

Yes I have had that replaced because the airbag light was on because of a faulty connection in the steering wheel and also hoping the it would fix the cruise control.

So Conman D40 did you find the problem? mine was doing the same only works when it feels like it, turnes off when it likes (if you get it working) I tried pushing the gear stick to the left and it worked so used to have a bottle in there to keep the stick over, it has worked agian for a month fine and now it is playing games again. So where is this neutral switch? can you get at it? I would like to test it see if this is the problem, don't want to take it to Nissan those d*#:heads don't know what they are doing.
Thanks

Your fault is definitely 100% park/neutral switch. thats why moving the gearstick will temporarily fix the fault as its pushing the selector harder against the switch. The switch is fitted in the side of the transmission, easy to change with a deep socket. 22mm from memory.
