    Does your speedometer wobble? When the cables get old, the cruise has a hard time keeping up and won't activate as it uses the VSS in the speedo to keep track of speed.

    Ever so slightly, you have to look hard to see it

    What is it doing or not doing? If you purchase the Honda manual, it has an excellent troubleshooting guide that will identify the problem in relatively short order.

    There should be a system power button on the dash somewhere. Does it light when you turn it on?
