Re: How to set cruise control
Cruise control on your escape will work at 30 mph and up. Press 'on 'button, then press gas pedal 'til u reach desired speed, press 'set acc' and you'll be cruisen. You can also do it this way, press 'on' button, then press and hold 'set/acc' button, car will accelerate, let go of button when u reach desired speed. Putting on brakes will deactivate cruise, u can then press 'RSM' to resume speed.

without know what engine and fuel system you have any answer is meaningless
but I will attempt to fill in the blanks
if it has a carby then set the idle off the throttle screw and set it to ( manual) 750 rpms ---auto--850 rpms
if it is EFI then run the fault codes to find the sensor that is failing and fix all the other faults
bumping the cruise( I take it that you tried to alter the cruise control setting) would make no difference as it is set at what ever rpms you have when travelling
After much research & frustration, I learned this seems to be a fairly common problem with the Freestar. (along with many other problems.) We replaced the Brake Pressure Sensor and it corrected the cruise control problem and the Traction Control light. I think the part was about $30. & we were able to replace it ourselves. Hope this helps!
If you know how to set your speed limiter. To set your cruise control, press the stalk in (to the right). The orange light on your dash should go out and you're ready to set your cruise control. You can start the cruise control by either moving the cruise control stalk up or down. Once you start the cruise control you can move the stalk up or down to increase or decrease your cruise speed. You can move it toward you to shut off the cruise control. You can press it in again to go back to the speed limiter. I hope this helps.
ok , cruise. no engine options stated. so... wild guessing....
on many newer cars, and for sure with FBW or TBW (throttle by wire)
systems, the cruise is canceled any time there are DTCs set.
or any for the throttle portions for SURE.
keep in mind, you are not driving , IT IS.
the PCM is running the throttle no you, you are only begging.
so it assumes the car is out of control if TBW has errors.
and can in fact cause TBW limphome and tranny limp and engine limp home, triple limp. i call it.
it does that so you dont hit objects or others.
see all those lawsuits for toyota lately all for out of control.........?????
so if you had the FSM , in hand you;d already know this.
and would scan the PCM and see if there are any DTCs set.
if all is clean then and only then diagnose CRUISE.
FBW -fly by wire, (generic term)
TBW = Throttle by wire.
the V6 engine may have a throttle cable, so ..... what engine.
always post engine type and country and if car has throttle by wire
some years, started mid year. so YOU NEED TO KNOW BY LOOKING THAT THE TROTTLE VALVE for 1 second.
Once you have turned your cruise control on accelerate to desired speed press SET button on right hand side of steering wheel before lifting foot from accelerator, then remove foot from accelerator. pushing RESUME button will deactivate cruise control without turning it off. Then when clear of traffic push resume again to activate cruise control. It will automatically resume to previous set speed.
Hello, First the vehicle has to be operating at least 35mph. There will be two sets of switches, one set is to the left and the other set is to the right of the horn on the steering wheel. The switches on the left will be labeled on/off, the ones on the right we be labeled Coast/Accel/Resume..
At a steady highway speed press the ON switch, (at the left hand side of the horn) This will activate and turn the speed control system ON...
Then you have to set and adjust your desired speed...
To SET YOUR DESIRED speed , press and hold the accel switch (Right side of Horn) until your desired speed has been reached and then release the switch.. Speed control will now be on, activated and set, you will be in cruise mode..
If you need to coast due to possible traffic, press and hold the coast switch as long as you need to.. This is like taking your foot off of the accelerator pedal.. When you let go of the coast switch you will return to you set cruising speed.
Stepping on the brake pedal at any time will deactivate the system.. If you step on the brake, and then want to return to your previous set cruising speed... All you have to do is press resume...
I hope this has helped you? You can find detailed speed control activation instructions in your 2005 Ford Focus Owners manual.. If you did not receive your owners manual when you bought the vehicle.. You can purchase one at your local Ford, Lincoln or Mercury dealership..
I had the same happen on my Accord. Turning the car off and on didn't fix, either did pressing the brake nor pressing the cancel button for cruise control. But I pressed the cruise button, that turns on cruise control, and the light went out. I'm now wondering whether I need to take the car in for service, since I don't know what caused this to come on and to not go off with brakes or cancel button.
Cruise control allows the driver to push a button thereby setting and holding the car's current speed. This allows you to take your foot off the acceleratot pedal and "cruise." Modern "Cruise" systems also have added feature like increasing or decreasing your speed, and coasting so that you can adjust your speed for traffic or road conditions without exiting the cruise function. Touching the brake pedal automatically turns the cruise function off; or you can exit by turning cruise button to "off" at the touch of your thumb or fingertips. Cruise helps on long trips by reducing fatigue, and keeps you from going over the speed limit by setting your speed to the posted limit.
Hope this helps. I will address overdrive in another post. Thanks, TaterTodd
here are two switches that are the usual causes of the cruise kicking
out. they are both under the dash. One is the switch for the brake
lamps (stop light switch). the other is for the clutch if you have a
if you follow the brake pedal up under the dash you'll find two
switches at the top of the pedal. (it may be one switch but I think its
two). the top one would be for the cruise control. if the switch is
loose it will cause the cruise control to think you're stepping on the
brake and that will disengage the cruise control
same with the clutch pedal if you have a manual transmission; if the
switch is loose it will indicate you are pushing the clutch pedal in
and cause the cruise to kick out
other than that you'll have to check all of the connectors. If it does
engage then the fuses and actuators should be good and it would be a
loose connector or switch that's kicking it out
also, i assume your speedometer works; if its not then that's your problem as the cruise won't engage under 30 mph
