Question about 2001 Chrysler Town & Country

1997 Mercury Villager - Odometer is irratic between zero and the speed I am driving at. If I am using cruise control, the cc disengages. Would this problem possibly be the cable, a sensor or an internal tranny problem?

Need more info, but you have a vehicle speed sensor in the transmission that sends an electrical signal to your speedometer.
Your speedo the transforms the signal and sends it to the tachometer and the engine control computer (PCM).
There is no cable for the speedo in this van.
The speed sensor is very hard to remove due to corrosion, but you can clean the two terminals on the sensor to see if that fixes it.
The VSS is on top of the trans, drivers side, rear. Acesss from above or below.
Push release cilp and lift up on the conector. Clean with product from radio shack.

Cruise control notworking on a 2002 F150

cruise controls are controlled by the following switches and sensors
1 the switch itself
2-- the clutch pedal sensor or the VSS in the auto transmission
3 the brake sensor ---4-- the gear change switch or selector
5-- the engine speed sensor ( tacho)
6-- the road speed (VSS )
if 1 or a combination is not working or is outside parameters , the cruise control will not switch on
the road speed in a manual is set at around 20 mph and any less will not engage cruise control(CC)
changing gears in a manual will disengage CC
touching the clutch pedal will not allow engagement or will disengage CC
for some sensors run the fault codes

2000 mercury villager, runs a fast idle. whether cold or warm the idle remains at a high idle speed, it even pulls with the brake applied.

Could be a vac leak, or a dirty throttle body, or a faulty idle air control valve. The computer controls idle speed by regulating the amount of air into the intake. Could also be something pulling on the throttle cable such as the cruise control.

Speedometer, odometer, and cruise quit working

clean the 2 wire connector on the speed sensor on top of trans, driver side, rear of trans.

VSS is hard to remove in rust climates so hope it's the connector.
