Default 2003 Accord Cruise Control

The cruise control disengages after about 1 hour of use. Has anyone
ever attempted servicing the unit by themself? I am planning to do
just that. Just curious as to how difficult, and what to expect.
Thanks.

There is nothing inside the speed control to service. There is nothing
to replace or adjust.

Good luck.

have you ever considered that it may switch off after 60 minutes for
safety reasons?

That's an interesting point. It would probably be an aftermarket unit,
but maybe it's in the owner's manual :

It sounds unsafe, since some goof could be tailgating you at 120 Km /Hr
when it happens.

I've been using cruise controls religiously since the '60 Imperial I had in
high school (42 years ago) and have never encountered one, including on the
2000 and 2006 hondas, that cut off after 60 minutes. They just don't do
that intentionally.

There are about 10 pages of trouble shooting and tests for the cruise
control in both the 2000 and 2006 FSMs. I would first check for loose
electrical connectors, then get hold of the repair manual for this car to
find out what to do (www.helminc.com).

After it disengages, if I set it again it disengages after a minute.
If I leave it alone for about 15 minutes and set the cruise, it lasts
longer maybe 10 minutes or more. Maybe it cooled off a bit. Don't know.

Wow, It doesn't owe you anything, I guess. Your cable is probably way
out of adjustment. Mine was at only 250,000 Km. The adjuster at the
vacuum unit needs to be cranked out, making the sheath longer (cable
shorter), so get out your 12 mm open end wrench. Mine was about 3/8"
out, maybe a 1/2.

I have a 2003 Accord - and the Helm manual - and I have to replace the
cruise control switch in the steering wheel. I'm talking about the
switch that turns the cruise control function on and off. If I hold
that button down, my CC light stays on, and I can set the cruise
control. If I just press the button (but don't hold it down), the light
flashes quickly on and then back off, and the cruise control does not
work. So it's that switch.

I hope to get a weekend with a little down time to look into it; if I do
so soon, I'll be glad to share any information I may glean.

RFT!!!
