my cruise control speeds up bad when I btake
my 2001 Dakota cruise control works fine until I have to brake and it accelerates so bad
its scary because the gas pedal goes right to floor the only way to stop is shut off cruise and cross your fingers it works, I am disabled and need my cruise control on highways please help
NEVER,NEVER,EVER rely on crossing your fingers when it comes to the life or death of you or an innocent by-stander!!!!! .......You ABSOLUTELY MUST take your car to a repair shop NOW.
So after You BRK a little. Then foot off the BRK then it speeds up?
Unless she hit resume it should not resume....get it fixed before somebody dies.
THIS PERSON IS NOT A D.I.Y. ........GET IT REPAIRED!!!!!
WHO CARES WHY IT IS HAPPENING.......FOR CRYING OUT LOUD THEY ARE CROSSING THEIR FINGERS AS A SOLUTION!!!! GET IT FIX,REPAIRED,REPLACED right now.
It does matter, might be a normal function of the car . While in cruise control you can press the brakes then press the accelerator. The car might be try to get her to the speed she was at.
If you hit off or cancel and it still happens I would take it in
I think they would know if their car was acting normal; they said "Hit the brakes and it accelerates"
I have had a couple cars accelerate On me after braking and reapplication of the Excelerator. I'm just saying it could be operator Error. I've never herd or a car doing what the person Described. But I guess it is possible.
I haven't used it since it happened I am and have been in hospital with major surgery I was just interested if it happened to someone else I plan on having fixed as soon as I get out and can drive I would never be that stupid as to use it again just was interested if it was something that dodge has problems with and what it could be sorry your all upset over a question please don't judge me with out knowing all the facts Thank you for your imput
Was not judging you, I WAS WORRIED ABOUT your safety.
to: Martman .....I was is no way upset with your question....I was upset with someone trying to give Do IT Yourself fix-er-up suggestions to someone who was obviously not a d.i.y. fixer upper type person....You obviously knew how to drive your car & use the brakes......I was very concerned that you might ; however, postpone repairs.
Thank you very much I do appreciate your concerns that pretty unusual no I am disabled as it is and don't need to get hurt again or hurt someone else your pretty special for caring just wanted to know if this is something that has happened before or is mine a rare case I am alone so I try and keep up with my 01 Dakota on the problems people have had and how dependable its going to stay for me etc thank you again for getting back to me I appreciate it a lot have a great week and anything you can tell me in future about my track I would appreciate it Kathy
if I hit cancel it goes off when hit brakes it speeds up bad thanks for caring
