    (1) Maybe this should be in the 1st generation forum?

    (2) Just so we're clear ... Either everything (engaging; disengaging; holding speed) works or it doesn't altogether, right?

    yeah you shouldn't ask 1st gen stuff on a 2nd gen forum. Go use the 1st gen forum they'll help you out!

    Either way the systems should be similar. If it's intermittently going on and off... I'd first verify all the connections. Beyond that, start looking at the control systems. Not sure if there's a separate command module, controlled by the ecu... no idea on how it's setup.

    Also, keep in mind cruise control systems are designed to be used only on flat/level roads. Even curves can throw it off a bit. Also, don't use it while towing.

    I added brake line extensions on mine which required bleeding the brakes. We had a hell of a time bleeding them. After several trys we decided to do it the old fashion way and pump the brake, hold and release. After it was all said and done we got them bleed and working. Only too find that the brake light would stay on at times. I didn't think too much of it but after a few weeks I noticed that my cruise control wasn't working right. The first 2 times was during the day and wasn't sure but the last time it did it it was on a trip during the night and could see thru my rear view mirror that my brake lights would turn on their own. Maybe a little bump or swerve would make it come on. I thought about it and decided to take her in. I explained it and my theory to the dealership and they replaced a brake switch or maybe sensor? Long story short, if the brake line came on then it would cut off my cruise control. I think we damaged that while we bleed my brake lines with all of the pumping and holding of the brakes.
