P0583 is a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) for "Cruise Control Vacuum Control Circuit Low". This can happen for multiple reasons and a mechanic needs to diagnose the specific cause for this code to be triggered in your situation. Our certified mobile mechanics can come to your home or office to perform the Check Engine Light diagnostic. Once we are able to diagnose the problem, you will be provided with an upfront quote for the recommended fix and receive $20.00 off as a credit towards the repair. All our repairs are backed by our 12-month / 12,000-mile warranty.
A P0583 trouble code indicates that the vehicle's Powertrain Control Module (PCM) has registered an electrical malfunction in the cruise control vacuum control circuit.
Cruise control is a feature on many modern-era models that helps the operator regulate speed while driving for long stretches. If the cruise control is found to be unable to properly maintain cruising speed, the PCM will run a diagnostic evaluation to verify whether there's a malfunction. If the tests show that the cruise control system isn't working, the vehicle computer will store the trouble code.
A P0583 instance should disable use of the vehicle's cruise control feature. However, the P0583 code is also often reported alongside other codes, which may have wider-reaching consequences for your vehicle. For diagnostic sakes, the vehicle's onboard computer will store the trouble code in question and illuminate the dashboard's trouble lamp. This will alert the operator that there's a problem with the vehicle.
The P0583 code may be first identified by inputting an OBD-II code reader into the vehicle's computer and scanning for reported issues.
Any wiring related to the cruise control system should be inspected visually for signs of fault, damage or wear.
The vacuum supply hose and one-way check valve should be checked for signs of damage, particularly cracks.
Cracks can be found by blowing a smoke machine into the hose and visually identifying leaks as such.
The control modules related to cruise control (including the PCM itself) should be disconnected if circuit resistance is being tested.
Components related to the cruise control system are sometimes mistakenly replaced due to an undiagnosed blown fuse. Technicians also report the cruise control servo is often wrongfully blamed instead of a faulty one-way check valve.
The consequences of a P0583 trouble code should be limited to the cruise control feature. The code on its own should not otherwise hinder the vehicle's operation. However, the code often comes alongside other trouble codes which may pose other concerns for the vehicle.
Repair any damaged components and loose or faulty wiring as needed. If you tested the system for voltage before making repairs, run the same tests again to see if the levels have improved significantly.
Any cruise control switches that have been found out as faulty should be replaced as required. Afterwards, the system should be retested to ensure the code has been solved.
Because testing the vehicle in drive requires someone in the driver's seat, solving a P0583 trouble code is more convenient as a two-person job.
