ok, I disconnected the CC harness at the other end and it stopped, so it must be a short in my impeccable repair job. let that be a warning to any of ye who take it upon themselves to try to unplug the CC pod.
now.....does anyone know where I could find a replacement of this cable or if I'm stuck fixing it again?
EDIT: I'm an idiot. seems the problem is in the cruise control pod itself. I probably squished an LED connection against another wire. hope that'll fix it.
EDIT 2: It turns out that one of the pins wasn't getting all the way in and making a connection with the harness. the problem seems solved, but I'll only assert that once everything is back together.
