I don't know this model but a lot of things are necessary for a good operation of a cruise control. Speedsensor, actuator and computer need to be functionnal. Below a certain speed, the computer just won't engage it. Since it does not even light up, it might be a bad wire connexion or even a faulty computer. I suggest you start checking all the wires for the cruise control system.

As to the function of the cruise control, you will need to check with a mechanic to make sure all the components are functioning, The indicator light for cruise did not arrive on the scene until the 1997 model. There is no indicator light for '93-96 models. I have two of them, plus a 98.
