I had the same problem on my and my sister-in-law 98 Jetta. It is the control box for the cruise control. You can look at eBay but I think there was known problems with them. I had mine and hers rebuilt for about $90/each and has been working flawlessly for 2 years.

The replacing took a little time maybe 45 minutes you have to pull the light switch on the dash and vent. There is only one bolt but a little hard to get at. You have to send them yours and they will send you one already rebuilt. You will also need the number of the controller to confirm with them.

Hope this helps

1997 jetta cruise control fuse?

A. There is no "Cruise Control Relay" per se. The power for the cruise control comes through fuse #14 in the fuse box. From there it goes to the Cruise Control Switch. However, the Cruise Control Module is above the Fuse/Relay box, behind the dash board. There is a special cruise control tester, VAG 1466, that Volkswagen plugs into the system to pinpoint malfunctions. I think it would be worth the money to just have Volkswagen check the system if you find the fuse is not the problem.

1997 jetta thinking about buying a jetta what should you watch out for what is the good and bad on a 1997 vw jetta?

most 97 jettas tend to have problems with automatic transmissions. I just traded in my '97 VW Jetta GLX towards a '04 Jetta GL. Here are all the problems I had with the '97 Jetta over the 4 years I owned it; Water pump was replaced, wiring in the doors to the windows went out (all of them), the motor to one of the back windows went out, heater core one day leaked all over my legs and had to replace, all the upper radiator hoses were disintegrating and had to replace, the fog lights worked half the time, the a/c quit, the cruise control quit, and the throttle body was going but I traded it. Even though I had all these problems with my car I still loved it. The motor was great at 150k miles and it was fun to drive. I'll be in a VeeDub for a while...
