I was coming back from my trip on memorial day weekend and per the norm I was using the cruise control. For some reason while driving I started slowing down. So after playing with the cruise buttons for a moment I realized that I lost my cruise control. Is the cruise control on a fused circuit? If which one on the fuse block is it and how many amps is the fuse (my crappy haynes book doesn't tell me). Also is it more likely that it's that simple or should I be looking at a vaccum problem of some sort?

Happened to me once. My problem turned out to be a broken clip on the Cruise control servo (located under the left fender behind the splash shield). This clip attaches the servo to the C/C throttle cable. Some junkyard parts and a little time and everything was as good as new. Hope this helps :canada:

Happened to me as well, but it turned out to be the vacuum servo in the driver's side fender. It looks like a big octopus.

Or even #10, I checked out that list on Erics site, I'll have to dig at them tomorrow and start there. I gotta dig up my owners manual, apparently it contains the needed info :dunno: .

I know I didnt ask the original question or anything, but how hard would it be for me to look at the vaccum's. Where are they at?

Thanx

Well yesterday I finally got off my lazy streak and pulled and checked the 2 fuses. Nothing wrong there. For kicks and giggles I also gave the horn a tap and it's fine as well. I think today when I get home from work i'm gonna try to yank the wheel well cover off and dig up the vaccum soleniod doodad watchamacallit flux capacitor piece and see if the lines running to it are ok. They seem to check out on the inside of the engine bay as far as hook ups and not being cracked. Beyond that is there gonna be anything else I should be looking for if this piece checks out all right?

you can always check the little thingies on the steering wheel. The thing in plastic that the wires run through.

After about 10 minutes of trying to dig around under the fender i've become more confused. As far as I can tell all the hoses are in place and tight enough on the fittings. Beyond that I couldn't really get too the part to examine it any better. It's prolly gonna have to wait till I can get the tire off and the car up on a jack.
