You probably have an early 2001. You can also verify by checking if you have rear drums. That would also indicate that you have an early 2001 which explains why you would have the vaccum cruise cable instead of electronic cruise. The electronic cruise was done to save Chrysler $$ by eliminating the vaccum cruise canister and cable, but could only be done on the manual transmissions because the autos still needed the cable to go down to the tranny itself. With just the electronic cruise, the auto tranny would think that you were always at 0% throttle and wouldn't shift right.i have the vaccum cruise cable and box underneath my driver side battery but havent understood why it is there if it wont work or does the compter on the vp tell it what to do?
Does that help explain it any better?
