'88 Accord cruise control problem...

Discussion in 'Accord' started by Robert Griffin, Oct 25, 2003.

  1. The cruise control on my '88 LXi is very slow to disengage. It doesn't
    matter whether I use the clutch pedal, brake pedal, or the off switch. It
    takes about 20 seconds to begin to decelerate. If I do use the brake during
    this time I am actually fighting the cruise control. Also, upon cresting a
    hill, the cruise may accelerate up to 15 mph beyond the set speed.

    thanks for any helpful suggestions!

    I have no specific knowledge of the cruise control system of the '88
    Accord, but it sounds like the cable from the cruise control actuator to
    the throttle valve is sticking or binding or that the actuator clutch
    does not release properly.
