Cruise control disengages by itself at any given speed after driving a mile or so. Then I hit resume, kicks on and after a while, disengages by itself again. Last night it disconnected 21 times in a 16 mile stretch of on highway I-4. this after taken it to dealer courtesy Chevrolet whom I reported the condition and they replaced some parts. But still doing the same.

Problems with vehicle's radio equipment. The vehicle would lose the time and the radio would lose stations when the vehicle was turned on, the temperature gauge read above normal, the cruise control would cut off and when the engine was cold there would be a hesitation.
