Actually, the 2.8 from 98 is an old fashioned "drive by wire" system (i.e. cable to throttle).

I think they changed to electronic late 99/2000.

The 2.8 has an electronic throttle, yes? The cruise control is 
controlled by the engine module in that case... Some of the display 
values concern cruise control - have a look at them and see if they are 
being sane.
