92 prelude cruise control accelerates itself when headlamps are on


Asked by Apr 13, 2014 at 08:41 PM about the 1992 Honda Prelude 2 Dr Si Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

HI! I just bought a 92 si prelude with 162k. I found out the hard way that if the
button for cruise is lit up and the headlamps are on... when you accelerate the
cruise engages and the only way to stop it is to trun the headlamps out, puching
the button makings the green light go out doesnt disengage it. ground issue....
previous owner stated had a crash ih front, bumper and hood and radiator
replaced. i also noted that the drivers side headlamp seems dull or not as bright
as the pass side. ideas? electrical gremlin or easy fix? thanks ahead of time

the headlight is a corroded plug in at the globe or ground wire ,near light. the cruise is not worth all the checking, disconnect the pull cable or wire feed under hood from unit,
