2002 Pontiac Grand Prix 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 125000 miles
Cruise quit working one day. Checked the fuse and it was ok. Took it to the shop and was told I need a new cruise control module. First off, where is this module located and secondly, can a wannabe shade tree mechanic handle replacing this? They wanted $359 for the module and another $100 to install. Please help.
