Cruise Control Servo
The cruise control servo is the device that handles feedback for the cruise control system. It handles signals from the accelerator and the brakes so that cruise control will respond accordingly. It receives information from the cruise control sensor and sends electrical signals to adjust the speed accordingly. The servo is often located under the hood and may not require that the dash be taken apart. A service manual is very helpful in doing any repairs or replacement. The job is fairly involved and takes some time to accomplish. Sometimes the servo can be cleaned thoroughly, lubricated, and replaced and that will be enough to repair any malfunction. But there are no guarantees and further repairs may be needed after extensive work. If replacement is needed the old part and new part should be carefully compared to ensure that the correct part is being installed. Proper alignment is also of utmost importance.
