Default P0833 Clutch pedal position switch (cruise problem)

The service bulletin relevant to this code mentions the following switch:

clutch pedal cruise control release switch

Can anyone tell me the part # for this or where it is located? I replaced the lower switch trying to fix this issue and get my cruise control back online but now need to find this guy and replace it.

Thanks!

Wanted to add this to see if it gave anymore info for anyone to go off of:

#05-08-68-001B: Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL), Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0833, Cruise Control Inoperative (Adjust Clutch Release Switch) - (May 29, 2008)


Subject: Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL), Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0833, Cruise Control Inoperative (Adjust Clutch Release Switch)


Models: 2005-2007 Chevrolet Corvette

with 6-Speed Manual Transmission


Condition
Some customers may comment on a malfunction indicator lamp. Some customers may also comment that the cruise control is inoperative.

A scan tool may reveal a DTC P0833. Cruise Disengaged History Reason will display "Lost Forward Gear" on Tech 2.

Cause
The clutch release switch may be misadjusted.

Diagnostic Information




There are two clutch switches
• The lower switch, the clutch start switch provides feedback to the PCM that the clutch pedal has been depressed to enable starting. This switch DOES NOT relate to the P0883 code.

• The upper switch, the clutch pedal position switch also referred to in SI as the clutch pedal cruise control release switch, provides the PCM feedback as to the position of the clutch pedal.

• Refer to Manual Transmission Component Views, Figure 2: 01 Y-Car: Comp Loc Views (Under LH Side of the Dash) in SI for switch locations.

Important: Multiple clutch presses during a single stop may provide inaccurate feedback to the PCM and the technician may misdiagnose the need to replace the PCM. The Tech 2 may not pick up the multiple presses which would appear that the PCM is not picking up the signal. The PCM should not be replaced if the Tech 2 does not pick up multiple clutch cycles during testing.

Isn't it down at your pedal??

According to what you posted it sounds like you might just need to adjust it, like a brake light switch to get things working again.

The "lower" switch is the one I replaced and it is down by the pedal. I was unable to locate a drawing that showed me where the upper switch was so I could perform said adjustment. I might have missed it but I couldn't find it none the less.

That's kind of what I thought as well. Once I know where the thing is, this should make a lot more sense to me. The light I had when I was down there wasn't the best and I didn't see another switch in the clutch pedal replacement procedure... and that's why I'm asking here.

I wanted to post an update. I checked all the switches related to the clutch pedal and notice the pedal wasn't traveling all the way to meet with the upper switch. Turns out the fluid was a bit low. Added fluid, reset the DIC and everything is working as intended!

Thanks for everyone's replies and help.

I don't have the "links and documents" you're interested in, but take a look at this picture, and click on the link below the picture to see a list of all the part #'s for all the items in the picture. #35 is the "cruise control release switch" and # 8 is the "clutch pedal position switch":




Here's the link to that picture with a list of part #'s (double check them - this isn't an official GM site):

Good luck!

I got the error code today for clutch b switch. I ordered one (only 6.00) but am having a hard time finding anything on the location of the darn thing to change it out.

Any help would be great.
