Cruise control cuts out

    I have a 2004 Tacoma SR5 Extended cab V-6 with manual 5 speed transmission. Vehicle has only 12K on it, thus it has not been driven often. On recent trip to the mountains, the cruise control was set (while in 5th) and it would cut out (totally disengage) after 10-15 minutes . It did this several times.
    I am accustomed to and tolerate the "hunt and search" problem of many Tacomas which I do experience but have not read about anyone else who has the problem where the cruise control just quits after 10-15 minutes. Any ideas?
    Glad to be part of your forum.

    Thanks. I'm quite sure the clutch is all the way out since I downshift when it quits. I only get 10-15 minutes of cruise before it quits. I may have to give in and take it to the dealer.

    I have the exact same truck. I bought mine and that happened almost immediately. I ended up replacing the clutch pedal bushing. This fixed the problem. This is a typical occurence on the Tacoma's. There is actually a website dedicated to this issue if that tells you anything. Check out the link below.

    Sometimes, the bushing wears out on the manual Taco's. This bushing is important because when the pedal is not being depressed, there is a button that is being pushed in by the clutch pedal. This button controls the cruise control. If the button is not pushed in because the clutch pedal does not return to it's resting position, the cruise control will not work. It is a safety feature to ensure that the cruise control is cancelled when the clutch is used.

    Check out the following link. This could be your problem.
