V8 cruise control help
Cruise stopped working abruptly. Fuse is intact, inline. When operating
stalk controls you can here the switching "click" in the relay/fuse box in
the passenger footwell, but no result. Car is a manual if that matters.
Any thoughts about the first thing to check out? I don't know much about
the cruise system on this car - it's vastly different (looking, at least)
than the electro-mechanical ones I have ever worked on.
Here's a coincident indicator - the clutch pedal suddenly has about 1/2"
of free play at rest. Could that be out of adjustment and not contacting a
vaccum break, so the cruise control thinks the clutch is engaged?
I scoped out the clutch pedal best I could, but couldn't find an
adjustment to take up the play - the clutch is not worn and is really
tight, and the hydraulics work very well.
