    Default Cruise Control Cable issue

    I'm trying to figure out how to adjust the cruise control cable located on the throttle bracket for a 1997 Chevy Tahoe. I removed it during an intake manifold replacement and now it sags (doesn't return or have tension). When I depress the gas pedal, the cruise control clip that attaches to the throttle spring falls off as there is no tension to return it. Any help would be appreciated.

    There is no adjustment. Did you pull on the cable when you removed it because it sounds like you need to take a look at the cruise control module that the cable runs to since it may be pulled out. And you may have to take it for a drive and have the cruise set so it can cycle.

    Thanks for the advice. I started messing with the plastic clip part that attaches to the cable and then I re-inserted it into the metal knob and I heard a click. That was the problem! Perhaps messing with the clip triggered something but its now good. Before that, I must have tried to push the plastic clip onto the knob 30 times without success. Thanks for responding.
