Sorry i have been trying to get back to you but there must be a problem with the web site. It would be helpful if you could give me the codes.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
hi I don't have them . the problem started right after my girlfriend bought the vehicle used. she had it to auto zone, where they thought the gas cap was at fault. we put a new cap on, the light went out for a couple of days. we just traveled to Daytona Beach forom wisconsin this week. Now when the engine runs good the cruise control works fine, while driving it will start to miss and then the CC will not work. If we stop the car and I unhook the wire assembly by the battery the engine will smoth out and work for awhile, I also ghave adjusted the vacume line from tghe master cylynder that seems to correct it also. we took it in for an oil change at the GM dealer before leaving for Daytona and they couldn't find anything wrong and reset the light. within a few hours it started up again. seems to happen when going up hill the light starts flashing if you back off it stops but remains on.
