Question about Cars & Trucks
Maybe by a physical actuator cable stop near to the carburettor? Would the AP500 think it was at full throttle when the cable was prevented from further movement? Would it burn the actuator motor out?

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.

Is the vehicle a four cylinder or V6, either way if what they stated to you is indeed the only problem, there are a few Mcgyver options open to you for far less than what they quoted. The lever itself is only a metal arm with a protruding ball type fitting for the cable. The leftmost cable is for the cruise control. I take it the bushing on the cable is worn or the rod itself has the lip damaged. Either way from in the hood snap the accelerator linkage a couple of times and watch how the cable comes off. A small tie strap between the cable and the end of the rod will probably solve your woes

Testimonial: "Thank you! I will check it out. They say the control arm has a "flat spot" causing the cable to slip off, thus no cruise control.?.?. "
