    I've had the mods for months now and no problems, till yesterday. Also it's an A4 with traction control.

    I wonder if your vacuum canister is working correctly? I've never looked at the cruise on the f-body but would assume they all work pretty much the same. There's a vacuum canister that operates the cruise cable. Kind of like the old push button 4x4's on the blazers. Sounds like that canister or cable is messed up somewhere.

    I know the cable is working ok, because there is only one cable on my SS since it has traction control. The one cable does the cruise control and normal throttle operations.
