Question about Dodge Ram 1500
When on cruis control at 100kph as I start up a hill and power is added, not enough to cause a downshift, I get a 'bump' repeatedly, it feels like I am hitting small debris on the road.
Check the rpm and road speed when this happens . The cruise control will increase to keep RPM constant but as the road speed drops the auto may be shifting down and as the rpm increase it shifts back before the rpm adjusts. You can override a cruise control in this situation by simply pressing down on the accelerator to maintain the power setting and road speed and when the situation is passed and you take your foot of the accelerator the cruise control will return the system to the set position without you needing to do anything

You sould have recieved a "recall" notice in the mail about the cruise control for fire and failure issues. they are adding a fusable link where the cruise control harness connects to the brake master cylinder. if you have not had the recall performed yet you should SERIOUSLY consider getting it done, mainly so it doesnt catch fire, but "could" be the result of the failure you've been experiancing! btw, almost ALL Ford vehicles have been affected with the cruise control recall. hope this helps!

Dirty wheel speed sensor on the front wheel clean or replace. Or it maybe the cruise control amp, if its that find a bone yard to get a replacement.
