Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Do I need to have this checked with a diagnostic at a Dodge dealership?
Will this happen again?
What will fix it permanently?
Is this a warranty issue?
The cruise control has always been undependable. After car has been driven on highway for several hours, the cruise control, when set, will disengage. The dealership has never been able to figure out, since it works for them on short test drive.
I wonder if these are connected issues.
I am not auto savvy, so will need to take to a pro, but want to know what to advise if wipers need further attention.
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, it was a long night last night and I over slept. The relay is not a hard thing to change, it just pushes into the relay box/fuse box. You can get a relay at your local auto parts store. If it has done it once it will do it again. You do not need to take it to the dealer at this point just a simple relay should be the only problem and there is no reason to spend money to have the problem diagnosed at the dealer. If the problem happens again after you have replaced the relay then it will need further checking, and I or another expert here can walk you through the test steps if you would like us to. Is there anything more I can do for you?
Is there any connection to the relay box/fuse box and the cruise control that goes out?
Both happened during highway driving. (4hrs)
We have learned just to live with the cruise control quirk. But wonder what that problem is.
Thanks for help!
