Assuming the speedo operates smoothly. Does the cruise control light come on when you turn it on? Pretty much everything else is monitored by the OBD and requires the system to be interrogated. The only other thing could be a bad vacuum line to the servo. Sorry couldn't help more but so much of it is digital that it may require more equipment to diagnose.

speedo works great and when pushing the cc power button in the steering wheel the light comes on under the odometer but it wont set when I press the set button.

Also my intermittent wipers are not working either so are these 2 issues related?

please help
thanks

They could be related in the form of and electrical connector in the steering column. It could be a switch in the steering wheel. There is also an item in the steering column called a clock spring, this unit allows the steering wheel to be turned and keep the electrical connections from the wheel it could have failed. There is a check valve in the line from the cruise control servo to the source of vacuume. The rear wheel speed sensor is the source of speed input for the system. Everything for the cruise runs thru the power train control module. Also working around the steering column the air bags should be disarmed not sure of the procedure for the 2000. The only way to have the pcm interrogated is with a diagnostic computer and it should be able to pinpoint the fault. Even a stop light switch will throw the system out of wack. There are electric solenoids that the PCM operates to control the cruise. Again this is from a manual for a 1999. I don't know if this helps but honestly by the time you replace one or two parts that don't fix it you could cover the cost of having it plugged in and checked. I would personally look over what I could see and look for obvious things. Cable from servo disconnected at throttle body, vacuume hoses unhooked things like that and if you find nothing take it to a parts store to see what their diagnostics show, this could be hit or miss depending on the person doing it but a lot of them do it for free and it may give you something.

I dont have a "check engine light" on so can I still run a OBD II on it?

Not all codes lock into and set off the check engine light. Battle Creek, Bedford area. Wasn't trying to be smart just some things get more involved with these problems than people wanna deal with or have tooling to deal with.

The check engine light will only come on if there is an emissions related problem. The cruise control system can't be accessed through a standard OBDII scan tool. You would need a DRBIII to access the cruise control system. The DRBIII has a screen for inputs and outputs that shows all of the switch states. This allows you to narrow down the problem by pushing the various buttons to see if the signal is getting through, it also makes it possible to easily check of the brake switch is sending the right signal.

As mentioned above, replacing the clock spring might make sense. If you want, you could get a copy of the wiring diagram and do some tests with a meter to check if the right signals are getting through.

go to the back of your D and make sure that your brake lights arent lit up. it wont rule out your brake switch. its a switch that turns on your lights when you hit the brakes. it has a cylinder on it that when pressure is released from it, the lights kick on. It also deactivates your cruise control. the reason why i say to check and see if your lights are lit up, is because it will definately be that switch. if they arent, you can still replace it to see if it helps. its relatively cheap.
