This is a problem that ive been dealing with for a while now on my 2009 heritage, however its getting worse and worse as time goes by. whenever the car is on an upwards incline the car begins slowing down, almost like the engine shuts off, and it will do this for a few seconds at a time, until it springs back to life and flies up the hill. this makes cruise control almost unusable, since the computer tries to compensate by flooring it whenever it dies, and when it comes back to life it goes rocketing off all the way to the redline. Oddly enough the check engine light has not come on. pumping the gas does not seem to help at all, when it wants to bog down it really wants to do it. ive looked around the forums and havent found anything that could help me yet if anyone knows what could be causing this it would be much appreciated ::biggrin:: as it is very frustrating to live with

Hi AdrianRuss,

Sorry to hear about this! If you decide to visit your local dealership I'd be happy to follow up with them for you if needed. Just PM our page with your VIN and let me know.
