Door lock and cruise control

Hi guys,I have 2 problems.First,my car is a 95 sable with the 3.0 and about 150000km.The power lock will unlock with the button on the door and remote(autostart remote)but you can't lock the door with button or remote,any ideas?second is my cruise control,when I turn it on,its like a teenager takes over and drives me nuts!what I mean is,when I turn on the cruise and set the speed,it floors it at 5km over what I set it to then lets go untill its back to the set speed and then it does this over and over...
I checked the vacum hoses and can't find any cracks or disconnections and I checked the computer and there's no errors anywhere,someone have an idea on that too?Thanks guys

First, that is the infamous electric/vacuum cruise servo, which has been known to have melting solder, which causes an internal short and the servo to pull the throttle to wide open!!! I wouldn't bother using the cruise anymore, or if you absolutely want it, replace the servo. Disconnect the cruise servo electrical connector to be safe. No need to disconnect the vacuum lines.

For the power locks, does it have the factory keyless entry system with the keypad on the door???

Re: Door lock and cruise control

Thanks tbird,can I just replace the servo?No,the car doesn't have the keypad on the door,it came with just power locks that lock when you press the brakes and put it in gear or locking the doors with the button on both front doors.The remote (autostart)was added when the car was bought in 95.
