Set Cruise control and engine died 07/ 5.7

OK, here is a good one. On the way into work today cruising at 50, I set the cruse control on the wheel, first on, and then set...The rig went completely dead. I was lucky since I was not in traffic...I pulled off and it started right up but what is up with that? Also, has anybody herd a ticking noise almost like an exhaust leak coming from what sounds like the drivers side?

Yea.. about the ticking noise.. It's a Hemi thing. Something to do with the MDS. Nothing to worry about. There have been many posts and threads about it.

BTW.. Do you have the 7yr 70K power train warranty ??

Sorry no idea about the cruise problem.
