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.

check for the presents of a switch on the tip of the master cylinder. these switches are problematic. if no switch on master cylinder, switch will be on brake pedal above brake switch, this switch is plastic and breaks very easy

More likley you want to have the transducer or the electronic equivalent checked first. The actual lever and controls rarely malfunction. However if someone has indeed pulled the lever out, it should snap back into place with a slight inward push towards the steering column. Best of luck, Dana

SOURCE: cruise control will not engage
pull the plastic cover off the top of the engine and check where the cable from the cruise control connects by the throttle body. There is a plastic connector that might be broken. i had the same problem and a piece of tape fixed it for me but you can replace the part if your picky.
