Default Check Engine Light -- Cruise Control

The instant that I turned on the cruise control yesterday, the check engine light came on. There was no apparent effect. The cruise control worked, and we've continued driving the car.

However, we would like to know if there might be a problem that should be looked into right away.

Would guess the speed sensor. You will need to check to see what codes were stored in the computer from that.

If the CEL (Check Engine Light) came on, as Busted said, the computer most probably set a fault code. Use the instructions below to get the code and come back to the forum.

How to retrieve fault codes.
