A defective vehicle speed sensor can cause problems with the cruise control and speedometer operation, as well as erratic shifting. The connectors on the sensors are also susceptible to corrosion, which will create similar symptoms. Any of these problems can cause Check Engine Light illumination.

Cruise control won't turn on anymore. It started out as taking one button push then 2 and then more and more until it just stopped all together. I still haven't gotten a fix for this issue.

Speedometer, odometer, and trip meter don't work, but the remainder of the cluster does.
