When you are cruising, what is the RPM, if it is too low can cause failure.

While driving my Jeep will suddenly jerk and lose power for a few seconds then everything is fine. I was thinking some kind of sensor. Any ideas?


If everything is okay before and after each icidence I would suspect a fuel supply problem. Are filter and pipes all clear of detritus? Does it happen in corners, whilst accelerating or decelerating? Does it happen whilst cruising? When engine is hot or cold. Which engine do you have. Please add detail and resubmit the query

Typically a sudden hard miss in engine is spark plug coils. Stop by an Autozone and see if code comes up telling you which cylinder is cutting out, then replace coil.

Honda Odyssey 2003 cruise control will not come on. Could it be a fuse or? I push the selector to set the cruise to on and nothing happens. Any ideas what is wrong?


is the check engine light on, key on, and out driving?
if not the newer honda;s cut CRUISE, for many failures.
they dont want to be like Toyota, and car drives it self, LOL.
no kidding.!!!
so today cruise is LAST. to work.
if the ECU is in limphome , cruise is cut.
so connect a scan tool and scan for DTCs.

i cant guess country , nobody ever post this. but up in canada
the the PCM is differernt and the CEL may not glow for some very bad errors, (misfire is one) so scan it, and win.
if no DTC then its a real cruise failure.

98 crown vic charge light goes on and needle goes to full charge when excelerating?


Sounds like the voltage regulator has failed.
Check voltage at the battery with the engine at idle and again with the engine at cruise speed. Voltage should be around 13 volts at idle and 14.5 volts at cruise speed.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

You may just have system failure. As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you remove the positive battery connector and let it sit for at least 5mins. before reconnecting it. This will reset the system and can get your vehicle back to it's normal operation.

This thing really happens and reconnecting the positive battery connector serves like a jumpstart to the vehicle's PCM (powertrain control module).

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Have it checked with a computer diagnostics. It sounds like it could be a bad sensor, quite possibly your oxygen sensor. A bad sensor could cause the computer to think your engine needs more fuel.

The only thing I can think is that the cruise control and the other computerized functions all share the same electronic module. The added current to drive the valves of the cruise control might be just enough to cause a temperature failure that cools down back into the operational zone in the 2 to 3 seconds it takes you to restart the engine.

It could also be faulty programming, where the part of the code that causes the failure only gets included in the operation of the car while the CC is on.

It's mystifying.

Call the dealer to see if there is a bulletin or a recall.
