[A4] Cruise Control and AC compressor.

Actually, the problem with the cruise control is most likely the stalk.  These are known to fail, and are probably not worth replacing as in my experience the replacements only last 6 months or so.  If it is the stalk and you scan for codes you will likely get something along the lines of "Implausible signal"

Subject: [A4] Cruise Control and AC compressor.

My car is a 98 A4 30V and I have a few issues.

#1 My Cruise Control does not work at all. Been that way since I bought the
car in February. Where do I start looking for the problem?

#2 Although the AC is still cranking, the compressor makes a loud racket
when engaged. Sounds like a REAL BAD lifter when at idle, but it certainly
is coming from the AC system as I can make it go away with a push of a
button. It sound like sure cries of death from the compressor... Is this
fixable, or will I need to get it replaced?
