The cruise control function is part of the throttle actuator (also called the ISC / CC / EA module) which controls three functions: Idle speed control, cruise control, and electronic accelerator.

The cruise control is also part of the break light circuit. It is $15.00 and for some change reason can interrupt cruise control function.

My head gasket was done by an extremely well-regarded Mercedes specialist in So. Cal, and I paid $1,400, but that included getting the head honed and installing new valve guides and seals, which many consider unnecessary on an M104 engine.
