Can't retrieve codes through dash an cruise control. Also cruise set resume switch does not seem to work.


It seems the pcm is detected a fault with the engine. Even if the problem goes away , the vehicle will have to go three drive cycles without engine faults before the cruise control use will be allowed by pcm.

1998 Dodge Stratus 2.4l bogs down suddenly while at cruising speed


You need to get the engine trouble codes by performing the "keydance" or using a code reader, then start checking fuel pressure at pump and regulator. Best luck. Amclaussen.

ok your problem is with the wheel the wheel speed sensor is reading a different speed prolly 1-2 mph difference so the dump valve in the abs is triggering i would change that wheel fast or youll be putting brake pads/shoes on that side very quickly. once you change the wheel pull the abs fuses or battery cable for 5 minutes then you should be good to go.as far as the spongyness pedal it will go away soon as the wheel is changed. if you still have the abs and brake light on you will need to pull some codes for us to help you some more.you 15" wheel is spinning faster then the 16" wheel the faster you go the bigger the difference will be between the 2.hope to hear good new back from ya.

While driving around 35MPH, the engine has cut out 4 times. I put the truck in neutral and started the engine back up within seconds. This has only happened while the cruise control was turned on. Left the...


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.

When driving, Speedodometer drops to zero.


I thought this year of Santa Fe had a 100k Warranty? If so, take it to the dealer and get it fixed. Even if it's not under warranty, take it and get it fixed! This is dangerous to use with the cruise control!! Do not use the Cruise Control until you get this fixed. It sounds like a bad speedomoter sensor, and that is confusing the Cruise Control. Either your speedometer is going to stop working altogether, or your going to RAM someone from behind going at a DANGEROUS rate of speed. Take it and get it fixed, and do not use the Cruise Control until it is fixed.

Anti theft system on my 2000 malibu goes off when driving


Its your ignition switch. Its not recognizing when you turn it to the start position. The little terminals inside the switch get burned and wear down. When mine went out, the whole power to the dash would flicker, even cut out when driving. I actually wired my system to 1 toggle switch for on and off, I kept the anti theft wires attached to the switch. I also have a starter switch, if I fail to turn the key like I'm trying to start the car, the theft light comes on and the car dies right after starting.

Loud air intake engine noise on startup


I would guess it is the electronic fan clutch. It will cause the fan to run too fast (very loud) and the light will come on sometimes.
