Cruise Control

Hi Andrew,

Hey, we have a thread! not BMW, not Torsen, not ML business practices.  My
Bentley, written on the Gutenberg presses, nevertheless has a very effective
troubleshooting roadmap on the cruise control system.  I should warn you
that the last destination is the control box which is where I got to because
all other items in the roadmap checked out okay.  You ought to go through
this procedure before putting in a control box, for you will probably find
that your control box is working fine.  If you can't get one elsewhere, I'll
scan a copy of mine in and fax or include it as a file attachment to you by
email.  It is roughly 8 pages in length.
