So in the last week or so my cruise has been kicking out, and its usually when I hit a larger bump.
So I was thinking that maybe there is a wire that has rubbed thru somewhere. But I just noticed today that when I hit the larger bumps in the road that my speedo bounces around. The speedo drops about 10 - 15 km/h. So now I'm not so sure that it is a bare wire somewhere. Where does a guy start looking?

As far as the cruise, I have heard a bad clock spring behind the steering wheel can cause problems with cruise, horn and other steering wheel mounted buttons. And for the speedo try doing a gauge sweep by holding down the tripometer button and turning the key on then press it one more time and it should sweep gauges. After they sweep and go back to zero turn the key off and you should be good to go. See if that does anything for you.

this is your rear ABS and speedo sensor if the speed is interrupted your cruise cuts off ( understandably )

check wiring / pull and clean sensor / replace if needed

Right on guys. Thanks. I'll check that sensor on the diff. And yes, I forgot to mention that it was also throwing the abs light on. Hopefully thats all it is. Thank you very much.

You guys were right. Turned out, it was just a broken wire at the speedo sensor on top of the diff. Thanks.
