THE CRUISE CONTROL STOPPED WORKING, AND THE VEHICLE WOULD BE STUCK IN ACCELERATION UP TO ALMOST 4K RPM. WAS GENERALLY ABLE TO CLEAR HIGH RPM TEMPORARILY BY PRESSING ACCELERATOR PAST 4K RPM AND LETTING OFF QUICKLY. THE PROBLEM CONTINUED FOR APPROXIMATELY 2 WEEKS. THE CRUISE LIGHT WOULD COME ON, AND THE ENGINE RPM ISSUE CONTINUED. BUT THE CRUISE MODULE WOULD NOT ENGAGE. AFTER SOME INTERNET RESEARCH, I REMOVED THE COVER FROM THE THROTTLE SIDE OF CABLES AND THE CRUISE CONTROL CABLE WAS DISCONNECTED. AFTER RECONNECTING THE CABLE AND FASHIONING A RETAINER, THE INCIDENTS WERE RESOLVED.
