Ok well I just started using Cruise Control today to see if it does help with fuel economy. Anyway, on my way home in the evening I noticed it wasn't changing into 4th gear. When I stopped, it was idling at 2000 revs in drive, neutral and park. I switched off and back on again and it was fine. Drove another couple of KM to get home and it was fine, had to swap cars around, when I got mine to the end of the driveway (after switching it off and on again) it was now idling normally in drive but at 1500 in neutral and park.

Any ideas before I have a whinge at the people at Hunter Holden? It's under the premium warranty

Cruise control cable probably needs lubricating with a squirt of CRC or something similar to stop it sticking.
