Cruise control complete failure

Most of these cars have a switch that is activated by your touching the brake pedal to turn off the cruise when you brake. Usually that is a small plastic switch, hidden up under the dashboard, that will "open" when you press the brake. ( A little plunger will come out of the switch). These switches often break or fall out of their holder, being really cheaply made. Be blessed.

My 2001 alero shakes at stop lights dies from time to time and when the light turns green it looses powers sort of like a drag

  • Sounds like you have some really fouled plugs. I would start with a tune up or plugs and wire at least. When your plugs, or even one plug, get fouled it creates a misfire and when at a stop light etc the cars will shake a bit and almost feel like it wants to **** a bit. Then when taking off it putters and lacks proper accelerations abilities.

  • Also make sure to use good gas as bad gas will cause some sluggishness too.

  • Hope this helps.
