Just looking for a place to start here...

Driving down the highway, if I set the cruise control, it will sometimes just start accelerating on it's own. Sometimes it accelerates just a few miles per hour more and stops, other times it doesn't stop. I have to disengage the cruise. Other times, once in a blue moon type thing, it will self-disengage (sometimes fully, sometimes just for a sec).

Thanks to those who know...

If it self engages i'd say that its a switch problem.

It won't hold the speed due to a bad cruise amp

The BEST thing to do, IMHO, is to have GDL rebuild it. It's not cheap, but it fixes the problem for good. I had mine done over 100K ago and it works perfectly. I use it every time I drive and I drive a lot.
