Ok now my EB has always had a prob since i bourght it.
It has the boot light riped out and the wires are just dangling in there. so i bourght some neons and wired them up and nothing. so i went over it and im getiing 12 volts but it earth's out when some thing is conected.
and last night i was driving and the loose wires must of hit the boot metal and ZAP!!!...all my interior died. :(. so i raced home and replaced it with a same fuse and it light up about half so i but a 15amp in and all is good.
BUT now the cruze control wont turn off. :( :( :(
Can any one help as i let go of the throttle and it wont slow down. it's dangerous as f**k.

you should never go over the recomended rated fuse.

ok. on the cluster it say CRUISE CONTROL ON and it must always be set to a certain speed as i slow down 2 about 20 kays and it will hold it at 20 kays. and i cant turn it off at the wheel.

You should always use the rated fuses. If the rated fuses are continuously blowing, then you have a problem that needs to be fixed.

Weather its a bad corroded connections or a short in the loom somewhere its better to look for the cause than just bunging a higher rated fuse in it. Also if you know about exposed wires in your car then you would be better off wrapping some electrical tape around the ends.

As for your Cruise, I had that problem. Turned on fine, then went to turn it off and nothing. And I was sitting on 110 :shock:

Maybe try vacuum hoses around the engine bay. Maybe your throttle cable for the cruise control is sticky?

Im moving this to the 6 cylinder workshop and renaming it for you. Its better to state the problem in the title rather than saying you have another stupid problem :wink:

have you done any stereo installs or other wiring in the car?
because theres a 100% chance you fukked something up thats causing your fuse problems.

what you are saying about the cruise makes no sense, the brake switch for the cruise is completely seperate to the brake light switch, the cruise one is vacuum.
not to mention if it keeps accelerating when you take your foot off the throttle, but the brake turns it off, how are you slowing down?
and if it's turning itself on when you start it, is it trying to accelerate out of your driveway?!
what the f**k.
either you are explaining everything in some retarded way or you are just flatout talking s**t.
