My cruise control shuts off on 2005 Acura MDX

My cruise control shuts off while climbing hills at 70mph. I have had this happen to me 12+ times with passengers in the car to verify that I did not step on the brake/gas/steering column to disengage. Cruise light shuts off on dashboard.

Acura has had my car on 3 separate occasions but they are unable to "recreate" the problem therefore they cannot fix it.

Please let me know if you have had the same problem.

Engine shut off while towing up a hill.


You'll need to have the computer scanned for trouble codes then go from there. If the check engine light was on for more than a minute there should be trouble codes stored.
The EVAP leak would not cause the engine to stall.

My 2011 Sonata cruise control stops working going down steep hills. The set light goes off. I had it set at 50mph but applied brakes when it increased to 70mph. Dealership says they can find nothing...


going down steep hills will all but over ride a cruise control, since the motor is trying to keep the vehicle slowed to what your desired speed that you set , unfortunately this doesn't always work,, as your speed increases, the motor can't keep the speed reduced, when you apply the brakes, the system shuts off, cruise controls were meant to be used pretty much on long flat surfaces with Low inclines ,,

CVT problem


Simple answer, no, it will not most likely cause any increased wear to your engine or transmission. Yes, it is normal for the engine to rev while climbing a hill while in cruise control.

The cruise is designed to be used on flat (or semi-flat) stretches of highway at 55mph or higher so you don't have to hold the fuel pedal the whole time and your foot doesn't get tired. The cruise control system will try it's best to keep your vehicle rolling at the set speed, increasing/decreasing the throttle to compensate for changes in engine load.

If you are driving with cruise on, try lightly putting your foot on the pedal and you might notice that the system will actually move the pedal itself. If you are in cruise, and you come up to a large hill, try putting your foot on the pedal and getting it up the hill on your own w/o cruise then resetting cruise once you are off the hill.

Also, cruise is not supposed to be used in moderate/ thick traffic or on country roads with a lot of rolling hills. The cruise control system is a "dumb" system meaning (not that it's pointless) but it will only change the pedal as the speed changes and it has no idea what's coming up next, even while you are already on the hill.

So, it is normal operation of the cruise control to try to compensate for a hill by constantly revving up the engine and letting it fall back down to try to keep moving at the exact same speed you set it for. If this is a bother, you can always use your foot to hold the pedal while climbing the hill normally.

Don't worry, it won't cause any increased wear and tear on your vehicle. I hope this helps. Good luck and don't forget to rate! Thank you!
