Speed Control Assembly Replacement Service & Cost

What is the Speed Control Assembly all about?

Cruise control, or speed control, is used to maintain a set speed when driving at highway speeds. It not only relieves the driver from constantly pressing on the accelerator, but improves fuel economy thanks to less throttle fluctuation. The speed control assembly is a servo that operates to hold the throttle steadily open when the cruise control is set. It is a vacuum-operated component that has a chain or cable running between it and the throttle pivot. When the cruise control is set, the cable tightens to hold the accelerator position. Pressing the accelerate or coast buttons on the cruise control will increase or decrease the about of pull the servo exerts. If the speed control assembly or servo is not working properly, the cruise control may not set at all or have difficulty maintaining a constant speed.

Keep in mind:

  • The speed control assembly is also known as the cruise control servo.

How it's done:

  • The vehicle battery is disconnected for safety
  • The defective speed control assembly is removed
  • The new speed control assembly is installed
  • The battery is reconnected and any programming is done
  • The vehicle is road tested and speed control operation is checked

Our recommendation:

The speed control assembly does not need maintenance or servicing, and should last the lifetime of your vehicle. If something does cause the speed control assembly to fail, or you suspect the speed control assembly is the cause of your cruise control issues, have one of our expert mechanics diagnose and replace it if necessary.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Speed Control Assembly?

  • Cruise control will not set
  • Speed control will not maintain a set speed
  • Other vacuum-operated functions, such as heater controls, do not work properly

How important is this service?

Cruise control is not a mandatory component on vehicles, and many are still manufactured today without speed control. As such, it is an accessory. If it does not work properly, it should not present a safety risk. Don’t use the cruise control until you have the speed control assembly replaced.

Robert is great. he not only came out to fix my car, but did it really quick and explained everything that was going on to me. i almost felt like i was bothering the poor guy as he was repairing my car, but he assured me it was no bother and was more than happy to inform me of the repairs he was doing. I asked him about other possible problems with my car as well, and again he was more then happy to assist me. i had concerns about future repairs and in what order, and time frames i was looking at before i needed such repairs done. Robert helped in me trying to figure out for myself what repairs were urgent and what could possible be put off for awhile due to my low income needs. i totally felt that he wasn't there to sell me services or fixes i didn't need, but more of a helpful adviser that knows what he's doing, and that cares. unlike some shops i've been to that'll try to sell you on extras and things just to generate income for the shop. now thanks to Robert my car has had repairs done right and i feel safer driving it. i also have a game plan of sorts as to what i need to do to fix other issues as well as what needs be addressed sooner rather then later as i save up some monies to repair my car. Mr. Keown is a Top Shelf Mechanic all the way

He called before he got here, was very nice and professional. He discovered the problem was with battery and not alternator as I thought it was. He will be back tomorrow to replace battery.
