SOURCE: cruise control won't work

Does the on light in the dash come on? If not, you may have a broken switch in the steering wheel which is a fairly cheap repair. Otherwise, the controls work through the Printed Circuit Board in your dash (your instrument cluster) and the problem could be as simple as a solder defect or faulty component. The problem is that no Ford Service Technician that I know will touch this and tell you that you need to replace it.

The instrument cluster is very easy to replace but may cost you a few more dollars than you want to spend. I would have someone with an electrical background check the cruise control switches in your steering wheel with a multimeter before going any further with this. Also check the wiring for resistance leading from the switch to the cluster.

There actually is a Fuse and a Relay for this. There should be a Fuse in the Cab Fuse Box and a Relay in the Fuse Relay Box under the Hood. These are where I would start.

SOURCE: cruise control

The cruise control should have a fuse in the interior fuse block, and a larger fuse and/or relay under hood in the relay center block. Test them with an automotive test light (You can purchase these for anywhere from $5.00 to $50.00 depending on the quality you want and the place of purchase).

If you find a bad fuse or primary fuse, obviously those need to be replaced. Relays can't be tested readily using the light. Unfortunately the simplest method for finding out if a relay is bad is to replace it. The relay for that cruise runs between $15.00 to $20.00 depending where you purchase.

Let me know how it goes and we'll see what more we can do!

Try pulling up the brake pedal with your foot,Sometimes your brake doesnt come back all the way,and the brake switch keeps the cruise from working.Also,check the fuse.If those answers dont help,It could be the swith itself is bad.Those can be bought at a parts store.

SOURCE: how do i use cruise control on focus

The two left buttons on the left turn ON/OFF the system so that you can use the three right buttons to use the cruise control.

Once you turn ON the cruise, accellerate to the speed you want to travel. Once you reach the cruise speed, press the middle (set) button and the system takes over. As soon as you press the OFF key on th left, your car will coast / de-accelerate. ... or , if you tap on the brake pedal or press the brake pedal to stop, the cruise control will dis-engage.
WARNING
Before you get into traffic, test the use of the system..
Also, the system may not be working, so it is important that you test it before you use in traffic.

I use mine 90% of the time, even in everyday driving, not just on the highway.

Crusie control does not work on 2011 gmc sierra 1500 and I've already replaced the switch?


If the switch is replaced,then it can be wiring issue or faulty cruise control board.But as the switch is replaced,get the voltage at the switch tested to confirm the switch is actually receiving voltage.If no voltage received at switch power supply wire then ,apply external 12 volt power to the cruise control switch wire and then see if cruise control comes ON.If yes,then you know wiring is issue.

I have a 2005 Ford Taurus and my cruise control has not been working for about a week now. The cruise control light is "ON" but it is not engaging? Also, the day after my cruise control stopped...


open the hood and check to see that the throttle cables are not out of place, if everything looks ok then unhook the cruise control cable from the throttle body (black plastic end) by pulling up on the cable end. this will disable your cruise control from making your car accelerate at unwanted times. sounds like there may be a problem with the cruise control servo.

Cruise control not working


Fuse is marked "ASC" 10A Speed Control (passenger compartment fuse box), most likely this will not be the problem, and if th fuse blew then there is a short and it won't work, the most common cause is the cruise control switch circuit.

Look for labels on your turn signal switch (lever) that say on, off, set/accel, resume. If you don't find these on the lever and they don't appear as buttons on the steering wheel, which they probably don't on the Escort and Tracer models, then your vehicle may not have come equipped with this option.
