Those servos can be fixed. My moms 05 ZX3 has a dealership installed cruise control, and awhile ago the cruise stopped working. I had dealt with cruise control problems in the past so I knew what was involved, and after finding no problems elsewhere I looked at the servo and shook it and could feel/hear parts loose inside the servo box. Took it apart and found that some screws had come loose from the plastic gear mechanism. Fixed it easily and it works like a champ now. The one in her car uses an electromagnet to pull on its throttle cable and the servo was actually mounted on top of the engine on a rail, I know factory installed are not as accessible as that.

Mccreet, you have any luck with that self diagnostic procedure?

The brake switch circuit should be an easy fix. Go back to the junk yard and pull a stop lamp switch and brake pedal position switch:

Sorry to bump an old thread but I did the diagnostic and got the zero flashes. So suspect circuitry or steering wheel controls. How can the wheel controls be an issue if in doing the self test all are pressed and the self test works? So suspect cicuitry. What needs replaced? Any input from anyone?
