The "universal" stalk (turn signals/high beam/cruise/wipers...) behind the steering wheel is connected to an electrical switch. The switch is located inside the steering column. It is rather complicated, and therefore prone to defects. First place to look with your problem. I had the same problem, only with high beams. Every time I blinked to pass, cruise control dropped. The turn signals disengaged cruise too, but at random: often but not every time.The dealer replaced the switch under warranty, and I had no problem with cruise since. The work itself took several hours. The switch is expensive, and my dealer did not have it in storage. He need to order it. Probably, the same with your dealer. It is very important to verify that the part is already received before let mechanics to start disassemble the steering column. Otherwise you will be without your car for longer time, possibly for several days, till the dealer will receive the switch. It happened with me, even while the timing of appointment was set when they expected to have the partBTW, you can get idea about the switch pricing here:http://store.yahoo.com/electronman/roscruiscon.htmlIt looks as the stalk/switch costs more than the cruise control unit itself. $250 vs. $160.
2. I spinned wheels couple of times. The light "low traction" (or something of this kind) appeared on the dash, but I did not feel the traction control.
Though, I read about available modifications. Most of them are marketed primary for Grand Prix GTP - the same powertrain, the same lower body, and a lot of common parts. So, you can find a lot of links here:
It looks that some modifications cannot hurt. In my list, the first would be better brakes: 12 inch front rotors, and pads. Replacing oil and the transmission liquid by synthetic also would not hurt, as well as to install a big transmission liquid radiator. And, if you want to modify engine, this is necessary: it looks as the transmission barely can cope with the power from a stock engine.
I, probably, would not replace the pilley. This is not street-legal. But SLP is selling some street-legal stuff: cold air package ($200) and exhaust ($350). $50 or so less when on sale.
