Hmmm, Interesting. I just went out and verified that I was not smoking crack. My '97 CS (and I think my previous '95 CS) has the electronic Cruise... The stepper motor is right behind the battery. The EPC says this was changed for 1995-98 to be the electronic unit. If yours uses the Hella Cruise ECU - 41 08 643, it is the notorious late C900 unit. It is used in C900 92-93. I have had 4 of these and 2 were intermittent at about 100k and required resoldering, one was dead at <100k and one worked still (at 170kmi!)

And it is a 9000, not a C900. The ECU is from Hella; pedal > switches are new, and the brake light circuit is well OK.
