[A4] cruise not working related to secondary air vacuum?

The car is trying to tell you cruise control is a no-no.   That's partially 
why people don't pay attention to driving anymore.  They'd rather set 
cruise and lolly along at 55 in the left hand lane than actually drive 
correctly. *sigh*

But if you MUST use it, I would say that yes it is related to a vacuum 
line.  Just call the dealer with an explanation and see about getting it 
back in so they can check it out.
