This is the last problem I'm fighting with this car. I'm at the point of
fix or sell this thing, and my hand is being forced by the check engine
light being on meaning I can't get a clean smog test meaning I can't
renew the registration. But I wander.
Cruise control. At first it just wouldn't engage by moving the stalk to
the Set/Accel position. If on a trip and I would stop to buy gas, then
sometimes it wouldn't engage if it had worked before, or would engage if
it wouldn't before.
Finally the Set/Accel stopped working. Then I discovered that Set/Decel
would work to set it. Same kind of intermittency. Then that stopped working.
Had the switch in the steering column replaced. Once or twice the CC
worked normally, e.g., up to speed 65-70 and then set it. No more.
Then I discovered that it would work intermittently at lower speeds,
30 - 35 MPH. If it was working/on and I accelerated to a higher speed
it would stop working. Seems like there is a speed at which it stops
working. The stealer suggests replacing the CC module for only $700, but
I don't want to do that if it won't fix the problem.
Nice car. Just these really strange problems get really exasperating!
