Re: How to use cruise control to work torque converter?

Thanks. I'm not sure how to go about it. This torque converter makes the car lug down when the toggle switch is on, when under 30 mph. I thought of using a transmission pressure switch, but I forgot what model of Cadillac this 2004r transmission came out of.

How to use cruise control to work torque converter?

I want to get rid of the toggle switch I use to control torque converter. How can I hook the torque converter up to the cruise control. Does anyone know how to get it done?

I don't think you'll need to change the cross member.

Battery goes dead after sitting for 1 week
