I love my Dodge Ram, but lately the cruise control function has been a little on the fritz. Do you have any Dodge Ram cruise control troubleshooting tips?

When it comes to
Dodge Ram
cruise control troubleshooting, you should look to your throttle, vehicle speed or wheel speed sensors, or control module. Issues with these parts are the most common reasons you’ll experience a problem with cruise control.
Some Dodge owners report that they’ve fixed the issue just by giving the steering wheel a hard smack. While we’re sure that that’s worked in the short run for some people, to fix the cruise control issue entirely, you’re better off visiting a mechanic.
Here’s what you can expect to pay to get these specific parts fixed:
  • Throttle, $150 to $200
  • Vehicle speed sensor, $250 to $300
  • Wheel speed sensor, $200 to $250
  • Control module, $570 to $580
