Why might the auto cruise control on a 1998 Neon DOHC not stay at the set speed and when slowing the transmission seems to buck?

There is a vacuum leak OR/AND an malfunctioning injector

If the cruise control on your 1987 300ZX does not work, you might have an issue with the cruise control fuse or wiring. You could also have a problem with the switch that turns the cruise control on and off.

A Chevrolet Silverado that has cruise control problems might be having a problem with the part of the engine that controls speed and fuel intake. One culprit for this problem is the Speed Control Sensor that is located in the transmission. This part can be easily changed because it is more or less a probe that fits into the rear of the transmission.

First step might be checking the vacuum lines in the engine bay. If the cruise control unit does not get vacuum it will not work. Second, the brake light switch might be suspect at that age, it might be sticking or not working. Last, the buttons inside the car or the cruise control unit might have failed.

My front left (driver's side) brakes caught on fire and my cruise control hasn't worked since. You might want to check the connection from the cruise control to the brakes....

The most probable cause for your malfunctioning cruise control is a blown fuse. The fuse might have blown while you were changing your switch. The cruise control fuse can be found in the fuse box.

If the cruise control will not engage, there might be a problem with the Electronic Fuel Injector or the MAP Sensor. There might also be a problem with the Oxygen Sensor. Some autos have more than one oxygen sensor.

Hello, Can't think of ideas of how you can break you're cruise Control repair, but the best thing to do is go to B and B (body and paint Fire Stone. Excedrea excedera) and see if they can repair the cruise control button and that's the easiest way to go but if the cruise control is really broken you might want to swap out the steering wheel

You need to check if your car is equipped with cruise control. to do so look at your vin number. the 8th letter should be C. if not the cruise control is located at the base of your right leg. sometimes it might be covered by a shoe, if so untie. good luck Jeff.

It might just need a reprogramming of the TCM which should still be covered under your warranty if less than 60,000 miles.

I'm not a mechanic / technician but if your horn and cruise control stopped working at the same time , it might be the clock-spring inside your steering wheel column cover . The clockspring allows a person to turn the steering wheel while still maintaining the electrical connections to your horn and cruise control buttons

I don't know the answer but it might help if you specify Chrysler or Toyota transmission. If you have a 6 cyl 93 Grand Cherokee without an overdrive button on the dash then its a Toyota transmission If you have the button it's a Chrysler unit. Good luck.

I assume you mean the aircraft and the automatic control device in your parameters. The obvious answer is no, for about the same reason such a device could not be practically applied to say, a construction crane, there are too many rapid adjustments and parameters, no ( cruise control) operation, so to speak. There might be something akin to power-shift or automatic transmission, but that is different.

I have a 93 Caprice and the cruise went out a few times. Check the third brake light in the back of the window. If it is out replace it and this might fix the problem. Also check the fuse as it controls the cruise and third brake light as well.

It's on the combined turn-signal/cruise control/light switch lever on the left-hand side of the steering column. If you don't have an owner's manual, a GM dealer should be able to order one for you. You might also find them on eBay or Amazon.com.

check your transmission control relay.. it might be stuck..

Is your car on the re-call list for the cruise. Check with your local Ford dealer. They have to change the cruise module. No charge, even for that year. The old one, possible can cause a fire or short out.

Speed sensor might need replacing. Does the check engine light come on when driving?

I think you might be refering to a cruise getaway. A cruise getaway is when you go on a cruise ship and relax. I think if there is a cruise gateway ot would be the gateway to get on the cruise ship, like on a plane ride your wating to go on your standing in the depatrure gate.

Engines do not vibrate unless they starve on air or gas. What might vibrate when you are slowing down is wore brake disks or faulty bearings.

might just have to pull all fuses one at a time and replace blown ones

If the 94 Camry is anything like the 92 Camry check the fuses under the hood on the left hand side and check the fuses there that's what i would guess.AnswerThese problems may be unrelated. The cruise control is often deactivated unintentionally by someone forgetting to connect the cruise control actuator connection. Make sure the connection is tight. It is under the front of the actuator by the radiator, on the inboard side of the battery.

well that depends if you ordered cruise control on the dash as a spectrometer setting , if so then the gauge might need re wiring due to there is will be a short circuit from where the cruise was and where it is now. Hope that helped, goodluck CiVicGuy3

A cruise is a vacation of a lifetime for many people and obtaining a cruise at a discount is even better. To obtain a cruise discount one can visit any travel agency and ask about the current cruise specials. Cruise discounts can also be found at VacationsToGo.

cruisecritic.com has an article on how to pick a good cruise line! I think you should read there, and find some good tips. This is because what might seem like a great cruise line for me, might not be for you. It all depends on what your needs are, how much you can spend, and also what you which to do while traveling!

you might want to check the brakes and roters they might be broken or warped...that would be the my first guess...then you might check the alignment
