Cruise control doesnt work the light doesnt even come on


Fuses are a great place to start, if not fuses the actual cruise control switch may be to fault. Rear heater do you get heat out the front and if so is there a fuse for a rear fan maybe a blower.. Let me know

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.

Tcs and check engine lights came on while driving, then cruise control and smell of anti-freeze or oil comes thru when heater/air blowing on


Go to an auto parts store to get the code(s) read for free from the OBD. That will likely explain the Check Engine light (emissions related).

Also sounds like the screws weren't torqued enough (or Loc-tite not applied) by your repair mechanic.

Recall that radiator water (and anti-freeze) is what circulates in the heater core. Hopefully it is just a leaky core and turning off the heat (or shutting of that water circuit) will eliminate the smell.

Are you losing radiator water? That would be a tip-off.

Have you checked for water in the engine oil? Bad news if that's the problem.

My car smells funny in my mitsubishi cedia lancer 2000 when driving and it stalls some time and the car turns off when i took my car to get fixed there was no problem with the smell but when i went to...


Possible some wiring is burning or melting from under the dashboard have it checked again, the smell does it seem like burnt rubber or plastic?
Have it checked since you mentioned that the lights has gone. see the fuses as well just to be sure.
Better get an expert check it to be sure that nothing will be missed on the issue. If it is a wiring issue then the best thing is have the electrical rewired for best results.

Cruise control stopped working at about 70k. Enable light at switch comes on, but will not set a cruise speed (dash light will not turn on). I've not begun to inspect, but have read many problems about...


Check for a broken plastic piece under the hood on the throttle control. Top, Back right of the engine. Probably will see the cruse control cable sitting there disconnected.

Bad smell coming from heater/ smoke coming out vents


I had the same problem in my 98 Dodge Dakota! Replaced the heater core, problem solved. No more funky coolant smell and erie fog coming through my vents. I bought the heater core at rockauto.com online. Have purchased many items now from them. All factory parts so far at half the price of even AutoZone, even with the shipping. Also, you usually have to wait only a couple of days depending on the part and they have EVERYTHING.
