2001 Ford Explorer Sport Cruise Control not working

Hello,

I just bought a 2001 Ford Explorer Sport (3L V6, Automatic) and the cruise control isn't working. I looked into the fuses, but the one listed for the cruise also runs about 10 other things that are all working.

Anyone have any ideas on common failures or where I can d/l schematics?

    Yes, the horn does work.

    Also, not sure if this would eliminate the clock spring, but the lamps for the cruise control switches also work

    The recall info was the ticket. I looked into the recalls for my vehicle, and the one for the sensor on the master brake cylinder had not been done. When I looked into it, I had found that the previous owners (or their mechanic) had pulled the connector off of the sensor instead of getting it serviced. It was taped up and stuffed down the firewall, so I never noticed it. I plugged it in, and the cruise control now works! So, it's off to the Ford Dealership for the update on my recalls! Thank you!!!

Ford had a recall for the cruise control you might want to take it to them and have them looked at it.... i took mine to them and they changed all kinds of stuff that was not broke but had been recalled

The cruise control on my 2001 Mitsubishi Montero Sport XS is not working after I took my car in for a complete interior / exterior detailing. What do you suggest I check? It has worked beautifully since...


well the first thing is to check all your fuses, then i would take a look under the hood for any broken or disconnected vacuum lines,this is what i would check first, hope this is helpful.

I need to replace the cruise control switches on my 2001 Explorer Sport and don't know how to get to them. Any help will be greatly appreciated. I am concerned about the air bag. Thanks-- Pete


The air bag is completely disabled when the ground cable to the battery is disconnected. Check online for recalls from Ford on your cruise switch also for they had a fire hazard recall a couple years ago

Why cruise control won't work on 2003 ford explorer


If you hit "On", cruise control is on. It's just not set to the speed.

To properly set the cruise control, do the following procedure:

  1. Select the "On" button on the left side of the steering wheel
  2. On the right side of the steering wheel, there is a "+" along with "Set", press that button after you have accelerated to the speed you desire to maintain.
  3. Use the "+ and -" to speed up or slow down your vehicle.
  4. To temporarly disable the cruise control, simply press the brake pedal.
  5. To resume the previously desired speed, press the top button "Resume"
