Re: Cruise control stops, Check engine light and Sport mode light flashes.... its random?
On day two of a 2-day 1,500mi road trip while using the cruise control all day, suddenly the CC stopped working, (engine continued to run fine) the check engine light illuminated and the dash Sport Mode light started to flash. Again the 2.5 turbo didn't miss a beat.
Total mileage is 87,000 or so... and we're the owner since new.
Stopped the OB XT looking over the engine bay/transmission area but nothing seemed out of place.... continued driving without CC at 85mph (eastern Colorado) for another 500 miles. Ended the road trip in Vail and the next day when starting/using the OB XT all was good...Go figure? Two weeks later on the return road trip to ATL this loss of cruise control/check engine light flash condition happened again... We continued to drive the remainder of 700 miles until home in ATL. The OB XT is parked in the garage and the error mode condition is constant.
Any clues? a micro switch at the automatic gearbox shift lever? From Normal shift lever position to Sport shift lever position? Is there such a micro switch? I dunno, the cause seems simple, why I dunno....just a guess. Any clues?
PS., The JDM Bilstein BTS suspension upgrade was nice on this fast track, 80-90mp, two day road trip. The excruciatingly floppy under-damped OEM suspension arrangement is a distant past....
De-badged from day one ~
