Cruise control is working but when i set it to a certain speed it will not hold it & will just accelerate in an insane speed.

I-6 4.0L or V8? 4.7L???????

thats not a good sign. not at all. NoT road worthy, at all.

pray tell. the brake pedal cancels Cruise , right.>?

sounds like Toyota Disease.?

floor mats hitting throttle pedal?

let me tell you that newer cars can kill cruise for 18 reasons.

but the older the car , the less reasons.

some do , only with brake switch cancel or neutral selection (man killer cars.)

you never posted what engine option is there, or transmission.

on the newer cars, if the TBW , throttle by wire fails.

cruise is rendered Inop.

and goes to limphome. (low speeds and cruise is dead..)

here is the FSM. see chapter called fueling....

btw all my early jeeps had this issue. with bad TPS.

1988 to 1999

my 08 , no.

all MAP based speed densty fuel systems at risk (by its nature)

to have excessive RPM.

any air leaks.

or throttle jammed open.

or vacuum leaks,

on the new cars its has a new check to see that that dont happen.

RPM - and manifold vacuum, do not match TPS angle.

in gringo that means the engine actions dont match your right foot.

i then drops , cruise, and then goes to limphome mode on all newer cars. my wrangler this happened beginning for 07, but its 3.8L V6.

the mech, would first makes sure the engine runs perfect

by driving. it , and then using a scan tool (rent one) and see if there

are any DTC error any where. a FULL SCAN.

first see page 50 , (FSM) fueling, figure 37]

see that, see those cables,

you need to find out of any of those are sticking.

as you can see the Cruise control has its own CABLE

so both it , the control actuator or the cable can stick.

these need careful, checking per the FSM.

sadly my FSM above has bugs (its not really mine, just my link)

has an error in the speedcontrol chapter, you can see it. has all this, log in and read.

the key to finding this, is.

does the brake pedal cancel it.


if no. then the Cruise acuator or something else has jammmed

open the throttle. ( or any gross air leak to engine induction)

Does anyone know anything about the error message on the message center says' no DSC available' it flashes amber on message board in my XK8 thanks in advance. Ryan

It could be the brake pedal switch, it often occurs it fails in our kitty. If your car (as mine) is equipped with a cruise control, this could be associated with the msg "cruise control not available" too (or something similar).
In this case you can fix (or change) that switch. The worst is to dismount it... ;-)

Good chance

92 honda accord lx it will start when it is cool outside but when it is hot it will not start. have already replaced distributor, coil, main engine relay switch. Can u tell me what else it could be ?...

I had the same issue happening with my 92 accord lx. I replaced the main relay and the issue was resolved... Was it the relay under the dash and hidden by the cruise control box you replaced? It is located under the drivers side dash, tucked WAY up there behind the cruise control box. This relay controls both the spark delivery AND the fuel pump.

If this IS what you replaced, it is more than likely still an electrical issue since the syptom only occurs when it is hot. This means an electrical connection is expanding and not connecting when it is hot. If the relay was replaced, it is possible the ECU may be having issues.
