    97 Cat with Intermittent Cruise control and Fog lamps.

    I have been having intermittent problems with both my cruise control and fog lamps. Sometimes they work when I hit the switch, the next time they won't.

    I have a 1997 Cat. Is there a particular area I should start with to see what may be causing the problem?

    Any and all help is appreciated! Thanks!

    Fog lights only work pith parking lamps on headlights on, just to throw that out. Otherwise do a search for "fog light fix." It goes over fixing the multifunction module, a common problem with our cats. Your cruise may also tie into the module, not sure. If not there are two switches that attach right behind the brake petal. Both could cause your symptoms. One is the cruise control switch, the other is the brake light switch. You ever have any problems with your break lights?

    When my brother drove the cat once, I could have sorn that hte brake lights flickered a bit. I have been thinking of replacing the brake switch. Didn't realize about the second switch (cruise). As for the multifunction module, I am assuming that can be pretty pricey?

    I would go ahead and swap out the brake light switch then. It is the common one to go out. You can also fix the module yourself.
