The old heater control/cruise problem

Driving to work today my cruise control was set at 65 on the highway and then just quit. The light was on, but the throttle was released. I continued on my way.

Leaving work tonight, I had heat only on the defroster vents. No floor, no dash.

I know this has to be a vacuum issue, but where to look? I bought the Jeep last month at Carmax, so if it is more than a simple rubber hose issue I am taking it in for warranty work. What are the most common places to see this issue?

heater

Look under the hood not under the dash. Probably under the battery or on the firewall.

I waited until I was old enough to afford a Jeep only to find out I still can't afford one.

Now I own two of them.

Bingo.

One of the vac lines going to the cruise came unplugged. No big deal. I guess I will need to give it a few drive cycles to relearn the fuel maps though. It likes to surge a bit when on the brake approaching a stop.

Glad I could be of some help...
