    In the dash near the steering column.

    If you are having problems with the CC most of the time it is the actuator. Manually cycling the actuator has fixed it for people in the past.

    I've already replaced the actuator and the brake fluid sensor, is there anything else that I can check and is there a way I can troubleshoot it.

    There are about 20 pages of troubleshooting steps for the CC in the diagnostics sections of the FSM, have you tried that?

    Our new LC had a non-functional CC and I was worried about the $ on that. I read this thread and cycled the actuator by hand a couple of times...fixed. Thanks a ton for the tips, even saved me a bit of cash as it was non-functional and that came up during the negotiations with the seller (dealer).

    Good to hear you got it fixed, but I cannot take credit, I think it was that Dan came up with that originally.

    Forgive me if the answer is too obvious, but exactly how do you manually cycle the actuator?

    Thanks for the tip and the welcome. I've got my eye on a '96 at a dealer but the CC doesn't work and that concerns me. I've never owned a TLC before but hope to be one of you soon.
