    Cruise Control and CEL

    Has anyone else gotten a CEL when they use their cruise control? This is the second time I received a CEL and both times are when I start using the cruise control. I maybe drive 20 miles before it comes on. I did tend to keep varying the speed with the lever as bay area traffic didn't really allow for a good cruise both times. Yeah I know, I'm going to stop using it now. Anyone have any ideas?

    How much boost are you running and for how long? Do you have the stock up-pipe cat?

    ok then, were you boosting in 5th gear? How much and for how long?

    Boosting in 5th gear for too long will cause a CEL. Its because the primary cat gets too hot.

    I had this happen on my car when it was stock

    We can't help if we don't know what trouble code your car was throwing. Get the code read by someone and post the results. Otherwise it's just blind leading the blind.
