Question about 1999 Mercury Cougar

99 Cougar neither cruise controll nor Drivr windw switch working

I just bought a 99 Cougar. The Cruise control is not working. Also, the driver side window does not roll down. Not sure if the switch is bad, or the regulator. The fuse box under the hood seems to be missing R1 (Relay). I do not have a repair manual to see what it impacts.

I had same issue with the Window actually both driver & passenger side. I ended up replacing the switches NOT CHEAP! there are about $70.00 each from Ford Dealer. I recommended that you try switching
out the motor's from one door to other & test this way to make sure it's not the motor. If it's the motor you'll be lucky as it way cheaper.
I tested & replaced the switch my self & its not hard at all very simple & easy. The only hard part is finding all crews to remove door trim. You should search ebay for parts with luck you my find cheaper.

Cruise control relay


There is a switch next to the brake light switch. It is actuated by the brake pedel. On the brake pedal there is a little urethane/rubber bumper. If that is gone then it will appear to the switch that the brakes are pressed. Any chance you found some rubber parts on the floor under your brake pedal?m On my 92 SE-R I found this urethane material and did not know where it came from. Then I noticed my cruise did not work. Then I noticed that my brake lights were staying on. I found these two switches (brake and cruise) were not making up because the rubber bumpers were gone. relay is located under the hood on the drivers side

My cruise control light behind the button is burnt out how do I get at it to replace it.


The following is from 2002 Honda Odyssey factory manual page 20-70: Driver's switch panel removal. (This is the switch panel to the left of the steering wheel with TCS, cruise control, mirror, and sliding door switches.) Gently pull on the driver's switch panel bottom right corner to release the (2) right side clips, then detach the remaining (2) clips on the left side and the single top center clip. If equipped, disconnect the cruise control main switch connector, TCS switch connector, power mirror switch connector, and power sliding door connector, then remove the panel. Once the panel is removed, you can push out the switch from the rear. The switch has two bulbs in it, one is the cruise switch backlight bulb and the other is the cruise control function bulb.

My friend just bought 2000 cougar and we can not believe it does not have cruise, we can not find any controls for it on steer column or any thing


not all cars even today come standard with cruise. The Cougar was kind of a low end economy car and CC was no standard. It's entirely possible that your friend's car doesn't have it.

Cruise Control is not working


Make sure your brake light are functioning properly. Some CC use the brake light circuit to release. If there is a bad bulb cruise won't work.

Cruise control problem


There are 3 places on the Rav4 where fuses can be located and checked. for the cuise control.

The back of the cruise control stacking switch has been know to fail (fall apart) and Toyota issued a TSB with replacement switch.

if it is the fuses then they most likely are related to cruise control system: Stop, Dome, Gauge and Igniton
The interior fuse box
The main engine fuse box (by brake fluid)
Cruise control ECU is under the glovebox.
Cruise control actuator is under hood (by driver side brake fluid/booster)Throttle position sensor (to detect if your foot is on gas pedal)
Cruise control switch on the clutch pedal too (if you have 5spd manual)
Brake lights are the deactivate signal for the cruise control

No brake or tail lights


Here is some information to consider and check. You should concentrate on the taillights first since that does not require you to constantly step on the brake pedal.

The bulb outage module, or lamp outage module, is located to the left of the drivers left leg while sitting in the seat. It is just slightly up under the dash, clipped into a black housing. It should be a white colored box with one large electrical plug with many wires plugging into it.

The switch above the brake light switch should be a cruise control deactivation switch, so that the cruise control turns off when the brake pedal is pressed.
