A friend's '03 PT Cruiser wouldn't disengage from cruise control, and continued to accelerate even after applying brakes, it continued for miles, cruise control was stuck. Any other owners experience this?
Did it stay engaged even after turning OFF the cruise control switch? There are a few ways to disable cruise - step on brake, hit the cancel button, turn the switch to OFF, or, if unable to stop any other way, put it in neutral, stop and shut car off, then start it again.
How did your friend finally stop the car if the cruise would not disengage?
