Reliability with cruise controls on the late C3's always have been very shaky. Mine has never worked regardless of how many times I've replaced the Transducer. Like Page says, why bother. Takes the fun out of driving. Generally the Transducer is the culpret. Also, be sure to check all the vacuum lines and clean the electrical contacts. Might help.
...but right now I can't see the point in fixing something I'd never use.
I prefer to DRIVE my vette, not let the cruise do it for me. I'm like this with other vehicles, too.
When the man in the motorhome turned on the cruise control and walked back to the kitchen to make a sandwich and then crashed....I felt that the term cruise control was a misleading misnomer.
Truthfully, I feel it could slow your reaction times trying to get your foot to the correct area in an emergency and cruise control fosters a lax attitude which could bite you if your attention wanes.
Yeah Heidi I can appreciate what you are saying. I just want everything on my baby in good working order if at all possible. I have to admit I do use it often on my other vehicles when the road conditions allow.
Most times it is the Transducer. Mine was fluxuating and not keeping the speed consistent. So I replaced the speedo cables and the Transducer in my '79. It fixed the problem. The Transducer is not very expensive like you would think. I believe it was only about $90 bucks.
Hey I noticed that we are almost neighbors. We should hook up sometime on a Saturday moring before the snow starts to fly.
