View Full Version : Cruise Control Problem

I am having a problem with the cruise control on my '99 GT. As I am driving down the road, the cruise control just kicks off. I can press the resume button and it will start again, but will only stay on for a few seconds. Also, when it is doing this, the car feels like it is downshifting. I have taken it to the dealer three times and they say they can't find anything wrong. Has anybody else had these problems?

I had the same problem but it turned out to be a bad brake switch

was just gonna say it has to do something with the brakes

On my '02, the brake switch has prevented my cruise from engaging. I have to hit the brakes a couple of times to get the cruise light to turn on.

Bad brake switch would explain the feeling of the down shifting too... when the brakes are activated the PCM pulls the tranny out of lock up....
