1995 Cadillac El Dorado V8 Front Wheel Drive Automatic 190000 miles
The mechanic has put in 4 new servos in an effort to solve this problem.
Codes are P061 and P062. Under history currently.
The behavior is that from time to time the cruise control won't work. So I turn the ignition off and restart the car. Sometimes it takes twice (restarting) instead of once to get the cruise to work. When it doesn't work I still get "Cruise Engaged". If I turn off the cruise control with the switch to try to get it to work, there is no response (doesn't say "cruise engaged) and still doesn't work.
This past week here in the Raleigh, NC area when the temperature was in the teens, the cruise wouldn't work unless I restarted the car a couple of times. This is even after the car was up to normal operating temperature. Since the weather is warmer the cruise is working again on the first try.
Any ideas? I have also turned the switch on and off to either make it work or to see if it would cause the cruise not to work. It seems to me like it may not be the servo, even though it works for a period of time after changing it out. The problem reacures anywhere from 3 months to over a year since replacement.
So far the mechanic hasn't been able to check the car without the cruise working. Or plan is to bring the car in the next time it isn't working. Not shut the car off so that the system won't "reboot".
have the same problem?
