Another Cruise Control problem

My cruise will "pop out" at times when going over a bump,such as going on to a bridge at turnpike speeds. My only idea is a bad stalk switch or tail light bulb loss of ground. Anyone with better information??? Thanks ,Willie

Above the parking brake pedal (need to remove the panel on 126s, not sure on others) is a 'box' that usually needs resoldering. It is made by bosche and is the size of ~ 2 ciggie packs.

If you find out then let me know, I have a rebuilt amp from GDL so I don't think that is my problem. I changed the acuator and that helped but it was a used unit. Saving money up for a GDL unit.

Check both the amp connector and the actuator connector. Tighten the individual connectors if required. I also put some conductive grease on mine.
