There is joy in the land this Hallowen Eve!
My cruise control is working again. I read all the info re cruise controls and it seemed that the Cruise Control Module is usually the issue. After finding it (thanks to these Forums) a good friend re-soldered all of the big hunks and also did the rivets found on the board. It took him about 45 minutes.
Put it back in the car and "Voila" the ultimate road car (MB 560 SEL) has CRUISE!! Nobody has enough money to pay all those speeding fines.
It's all gone good!
Next is the Antennae, look out!!
Thanks to all those who responded.
