SOURCE: Replace Cruise Control Switch in Steering Wheel

I am describing the procedure for the "On/Off" switch, I did not try the one you mention. Buy the switch anywhere ( about $15 ), then use a sharp tool ( small knife, screwdriver, anything ) to gently pry the old one from its socket. It is not glued or screwed in or anything, just squeezed tightly in the socket. Once the switch is out, pull the cable, connect it to the new one, insert back in the socket and press gently. No force necessary, it comes out easily.

SOURCE: steering wheel controls

Replace the clock spring, or check all the cabling and plugs first. If you are inexperienced take it to an auto electrician, otherwise do it yourself but disconnect the negative battery terminal for 2 minutes prior to opening the steering wheel to check the plugs, as not doing so could cause the airbag to go off. In addition you can also take out the airbag fuse. Check radio control plugs and close it up again and reconnect everything in reverse order. If that doesn't fix it, then have the clock spring replaced professionally, its too much mucking around if you don't know what you're doing.

I have a 2005 Lincoln town car cruise does not work

Could be a defective speed sensor or open fuse. If your Town Car has steering wheel cruise controls, the defect could be in those controls.

Have a 1997 Lincoln Town Car. The cruise control on and off switch in the steering wheel has stopped working. What is the procedure for replacing that switch and can the average person with a little bit of...

First, have your VIN# checked for the cruise control recall. There was a fire problem and the button inside the car is not the problem.

If you had the recall performed, they put a fuse inline. It may have blown. If you need to replace the button, check out a Salvage yard which will give you the opportunity to see how the parts fit before you tear yours apart. The Salvage part would be cheaper than a dealer part.
