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"

The tip that connects the accelerator cable to your throttle for the cruise control may be broken. I have had that problem before. The light won't come on cause your cruise isn't engaged

SOURCE: 2003 Ford Sport Trac Cruise Control Sticking

I "HAD" the same problem but fixed it.

'03 Sport trac w/70,000 miles. Started around 60,000 mile mark with light flashing briefly, only engaging 1in 10 times. Also, I noticed slightly decreased gas mileage around the same time.

Cruise Control problem corrected itself when I replaced the spark plugs and wires. Owners manual reccomended replacing plugs and wires at 100K. Do yourself a favor and replace them early. They were very difficult to get out. I noticed arcing from wires to block and several areas of friction damage to insulation. Wrap new wires with sheathing and tie wraps to prevent friction problems in the future.

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 2003 ford explorer. I accidently backed


on top of your brake master cylender under the hood (where you put in brake fluid) there is a sensor in the end of it which is for your cruise control. Un-plug the electrical connector and see if you see brake fluid in that sensor -take it to the dealer. This faulty cruise control switch has been the cause of many Fords catching fire. They will fix it for free-it is now a recall. This problem will allow the cruise not to work and an a.b.s. light also. Hope this helps!

Check the speed control deactivation switch on the master cylinder. disconnect and use a jumper wire to connect the wires together. If the cruise works it's the switch.

I have a 2003 Ford Explorer and the cruise-control doesn't work any more. I had it for less than two years and the ****** won't cruz control again.


an easy answer would be a vacuum line with a hole but with this late model and the fact its a ford i would think electrical problem. ford likes to use relays in all its electrical apps. if not the switch itself maybe a relay. the problem is finding which one. i go down to the auto parts and see if i can find info on the relays i can see or take it to a shop u can trust and have it diagnosed
