Cruise Control Vacuum Line?

My cruise control light turns on but it won't hold a speed. This seems to be a common problem and this hose seems to be the issue normally.
I saw this the other day while washing the jeep. Is this the vacuum line for the cruise control?

Thanks

I don't know what year your jeep is but I have a 1999 and the cruise vacuum line runs from a three way connecter on the passenger side back by the fire wall and runs almost under the top of the firewall toward the drivers side. The 3 way connecter also provides vacuum to the heating and cooling doors and the cut off switch to the AC when accelerating to pass or going up a hill. This can be a damn nuisance when driving in the mountains.

It's the drain hose from the battery tray, in case the battery were to boil over.

if you remove your passenger side headlight assembly you will see a black plastic box that is mounted under it and has a nipple facing towards the engine side which is supposed to be attached to the vacuum line for the cruise and HVAC system.

Also check on the throttle body area for any hoses off/missing. My vacuum line for cruise came off from there.

Once you have the passenger headlight out you will see the black plastic box with a vacuum line attached to it. I just fixed mine this morning. In the picture is the area behind the headlight. You can see the T connector and the cracked hose to the actuator. Both ends were dry rotted. I also replaced the tubing from the T down to the black box. This fixed my cruise control and my AC vents. Before, AC would only blow out the defroster.
