Cruise control problem

So I was driving on a trip the other day and I was using cruise control....as I went up a big hill it downshifted and basically floored it....no biggie, I does that all the time to try n maintain speed up a hill......only problem is, I'm going down the hill and it is still going wide open....now every single time I turn cruise control on, it just punches it to the floor and won't stop until I hit the brake or turn it off...........what is wrong now guys

Re: Cruise control problem

if it is a vacuum then it would not work at all. i had that problem on my WJ. you also wouldnt have control of HVAC, only defroster. mine goes up to about 3000rpms while going down a hill at 65-70mph, how much is yours going up?

Re: Cruise control problem

Did Toyota make WKs?

I don't know what to tell you. Don't use it and let the dealership look at it.
