problem #1

Jan 152003

X-Type 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,800 miles
On four separate occasions in the last five months, the car lost power and the "power train" warning light on the dash display came on. It appears to be related to the cruise control, since the failures occurred when engaging or re-engaging (after applying the brake or pressing on the accelerator) the cruise control. The failures seem to occur randomly and not every time the cruise control is used. The dealer has been unable to replicate the problem, but they have replaced the control computer and re-done a number of wiring harnesses. Even though the problem has not been replicated, the failure history is captured in the car's on-board computer.
