Default XC Cruise Control issue

I was coming back from a 4k trip, caught some rain, temps in the 100's and the cruise control started to fail, not being able to set.

It started working again after a long break for diner and has worked since. Having played with it, and not sure if it did this before, but the on/off switch will each turn on and off. So off will turn it on and off. Does anyone else's do that?

I am not sure if my cruise module is going bad or if I had some other intermittent issue with the cable or sensors due to rain. It was not bad rain however.

At times it would set and hold for maybe 3-5 mins and then release and not reset for some time. Then later you could reset it and it would hold for another 3-5 mins.

I've had a similiar problem. Will power "on" or "off" as it should. Sometimes it kicks off and will not "set". Then after 10,15, or 25 miles it will "set" and work as it should for hundreds of miles. Mine happens in dry conditions. I've had the dealer check it, no codes. A readjustment of the throttle cables improved it some but has not eliminated it. Until a component of the cruise fails completely, I don't hold any hope of them finding the fault.

Most likely water got in the handle bar control unit. That happened to mine at the 500 mile service when they washed it. They took it apart and cleaned it and filled it with dielectric grease. Or so I was told. But been in some nasty rain and washes since and have had no issue.

Si is it normal that the off switch will turn it on and the on switch will also turn if off?

Not normal. On=on ... Off=off.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Mine is new....either on or off turns it on or off. Must have a 3 second delay after turning it on before trying to set it. As far as releasing during rain.....drove 30 miles in solid rain last weekend...no problems, bike sat in rain for a few hours and no problems.

Interesting. There seems to be a few things that could drive it to not engage. Clutch, brakes, or throttle cable. But with the switches being off some, I think it could be that.

I checked my on/off switch this morning- it acts like a push on push off type switch & not a toggle switch. Push it anywhere on the switch (even in the middle of the 'toggle') it will switch on/off. I never noticed it before because I never turn it off once I turn it on. It took me a while to get used to this cruise control setup. It has a querk that my trucks unit doesn't -

Seems like it is much easier to set a new faster speed if you cancel the current set speed first. Like say your cruise is set at 70, but want to set it at 75- if I hit the brake enough to cancel the cruise it will accept the faster setting right away. Whereas if I try to set a faster speed before canceling the slower one it doesnt set all the time.

Also, if I speed up (say to pass someone) then let off the throttle, I need to press 'resume' for it to continue on at the previous speed. If I don't press resume, it will drop below previous speed, then slowly come back up to the 'set' speed.

I rode thru a heavy driving rain for an hour, didn't seem to affect it at all.

Hope that made sence...

This procedure is for your issue...


For those of you that are having problems with erratic cruise control operation. Try this Cruise Control Cable Lash Learn Procedure:

1. Press and hold the resume and on/off buttons on the cruise control switch.
2. Turn the ignition key to on.
3. While holding both buttons, start the engine.
4. After the engine starts, watch the cruise indicator lamp on the indicator display
until it goes out.
5. When the cruise control lamp goes out, release both buttons at the same time.
6. Press and hold the resume button. The cruise control indicator lamp should
illuminate.
7. Listen for a brief increase in engine RPM (very slight RPM increase) as the cruise
control module performs the procedure. The cruise control lamp will go off during
this procedure.
8. Release the resume button when the engine RPM drops down to idle speed and
turn engine off.
This procedure is used when replacing the cruise control cable, but try it. Maybe it will help. This info is right out of the service manual and it states that failure to perform this procedure will result in erratic cruise control operation. This procedure takes any slack or free play out of the cruise cable where it connects to the throttle body.

Mine gives me fits at 60mph. Inside the switch cube is a printed circuit board. Problem might lie inside the faring with not a good connection.
