Customer Question
cruise control Mechanic's Assistant:...

cruise control

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuse? What size is your engine?

Here's what's up....

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Chrysler?

It works. when I turn it on it stays on BUT it does not maintain speed, it has a 5 - 10 mile lag before it clicks back on or I can tap the gas pedal then the cc will 'wake up' and bring car up to speed

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your CC?

03 pt, touring

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your CC yourself? What have you tried so far?

Not yet. I want to figure out where I could possibly start

Hi, my name is***** sounds like you have a faulty cruise control servo. The servo is vacuum operated. A small leak in the servo will cause the system to not hold the set speed. The servo can be checked for leakage with a hand vacuum pump. Ideally you should get the car connected to a Chrysler scan tool to check for fault codes relating to the cruise control. Cruise faults will not always result in fault codes being stored however. If no codes are stored I would substitute a known good cruise servo for testing.
Let me know if you have any questions.

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
