Question about 1995 Honda Accord
Immediately after Dealer, Nalley Honda, put new battery in the car, I drove on the expressway and set the Cruise Control for 55 mph. It ran 2 minutes then started slowing down. I tried to set it again but failed. Sometimes I turn it on and it works for the duration of the trip. That is happening less often. The Cruise Control Indicator always lights on the Indicator Panel when I toggle the Cruise Control switch ON at the dashboard whether it works or not. The SpeedO and Tach are operating perfectly. Could the problem have been caused by the loss of programing when the battery was swapped ? Hint: I also noticed now I get 25 miles per gallon (MPG) where I used to get 33 MPG before the incident. What other reason could there be for this problem ? I got a Speed Warning Ticket that I would not have gotten as I use the Cruise Control religiously when it is working.
In response to the request from "emissionwiz" for more clarification of the problem:
This same 1995 Honda Accord was stolen in Atlanta, GA in 2006 and trashed. It was recovered the next day and held 4 days before I got postcard in mail to come pick it up. The battery was dead and the gas tank empty and lots of damage. The insurance made it right including putting a new battery. Two years later, a month before the replacement battery warranty ran out, the battery went dead. The dealer, Nalley Honda replaced the dead battery to satisfy the battery warranty free of charge. Never having had Cruise Control problems before, the Cruise Control failed within minutes after leaving the dealer, Nalley Honda. The Cruise Control only works to maintain speed approximately 20% of the time after the battery swap. What could have been damaged and caused the Cruise Control to fail intermittently ? I can not just ignore this problem because I need the Cruise Control. The digital multimeter I use might be of some help locating the trouble. Maybe you could point me in the right direction so I can hem this in. I read specifications if a wiring diagram is available. As stated before, all indications from the instrument panel tell me the Cruise Control is ON.
