    Just purcahsed a 2001 ford escape. Everything works except the cruise control. No light on dash when ON button pressed. Looked at fuses but cannot find a Cruise control fuse anywhere. Any ideas?

    Cruise control started to not work intermittently at around 120K. Now inoperable at 130K. Ford dealer states replacement for the switch alone is around $320! Any alternate replacement or ideas?

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

How do I change the external temp readout from Celsius to Fahrenheit on a 2010 Ford Explorer XLT?


There should be an option in the menu on your dash. There will either be three different buttons in a couple different places. Check the steering wheel, above or below the radio, or under the dash dimmer control located on left of the steering wheel. The buttons will always read info/setup/reset in that order. Press the setup button and look for the temperature control setting and follow the on screen instructions to reset it. Or if your car is the newer version there will be 4 arrows and an ok button on the left of your steering wheel. Use the arrows to scan through the dash screen and scroll to either setting or convenience, do the same thing. follow the on screen instructions and you should be set.

1995 Ford Explorer 4 wheel drive trouble, front wheel drive doesn't work


Something you can do is to tap the 4/4 motor under drivers side on the back of transfer case with key on engine off. Have someone work the buttons as you gently tap the motor. Don't hit so hard as to dent it. Usually works.

My 97 explorer has a vibration in the frontend like its in 4x drive but i can feel it engage and disengage


Does dash indicate whether it's in 2 wheel, 4 hi,or 4 low?It sounds like it might be in 4 wheel low.With the car running in Park, try turning dash knob from 2 wheel to 4 wheel low and then back to 2 wheel..now depress the brake pedal. Instructions to to do this are usually on the driver's side sun visor.

No parking on 98 ford explorer


That has nothing to do with the neutral safety switch (totally separate problem). You either have a broken adjuster or the cable adjuster is simply out of adjustment for your gearshift indicator. This cable and adjuster for this is located on the steering column just below the shifter. If the adjuster is broken (pretty common) the gearshift indicator asembly must be replaced to get it to work correctly.

Dash indicates that there is a door open, but


The indicator light is turned on and off when the door depresses a black button in the door jam. Similarly there's a button on the rear tailgate and rear window.
Try opening the tail gate and closeing it firmly. Do the same with the rear window.
If all these fail to operate the warning light properly the most likely problem is a short circuit. You should have this fixed ASAP as it will drain your battery.

Cruise does not work on Ford F150


Once you verify / change the Cruise Control Switch
This is the recall that hickoryy472 posted about ( you can also check on the ford site to see if it is still outstanding, it is free ).
recall 05S28. Description: Speed Control Deactivation Switch.

Another option for testing is to pull the connector on the End of the Master Cylinder, and jumper the 2 pins in the connector together. This is a secondary safety switch, in case the tail lamps go out while using the CC, that the pressure switch will shut off the CC.

Next you can run a self test on the CC :

There is a self test in the cruise control system.
With the key off depress and hold the cruise control off button while turning the ignition to the run position,don't start the truck, the cruise light will flash once to let you know it is in self test.
Five additional flashes indicate a bad cruise control servo

Release the cruise off switch and within 5 seconds depress the other switches in sequence:
1. on
2. resume
3. coast
4. set/ accel
The speed control light will flash as each switch is depressed.

If the last one does not flash it may then flash a code

After this the cruise will move the throttle to test the actuator and the cable.
Make sure the throttle returns to idle and turn the key off.
----------------------

Self-Test Diagnostics

WARNING:
This test is a key on engine off (KOEO) test only that is conducted in park only with emergency brake fully engaged.

1. Enter self-test diagnostics by depressing the speed control OFF switch while turning the ignition key ON, making sure the engine does not start and is not running. The speed control indicator on the instrument panel will flash once to indicate that speed control module entered the diagnostic mode. Five additional flashes at this point indicate a defective speed control servo. Release the OFF switch.

2. Press the remaining switches in this sequence: ON, RESUME, COAST and SET/ACCEL.

If the ON switch is not depressed within five seconds after entering the diagnostics mode, the module times out and the procedure must be started over.

The speed control indicator lamp will flash as each switch is depressed. Press each switch in the sequence immediately after the indicator light goes out for the previous switch.

Note:
There will be a slight delay when the last button is pressed and the lamp flashes.

3. A lamp flash with the last button (SET/ACCEL) indicates that the static test passed. If the lamp does not flash with the last button and there are no additional flashes of the lamp, the switch is defective.

If the lamp does not flash with the last button, and additional flashes occur, follow the chart below for trouble codes:

— 2 flashes - BPP defective, circuit is defective, brake applied, CPP switch or jumper (if equipped).

— 3 flashes - deactivator switch is open or circuit defective.

— 4 flashes - vehicle speed signal is out of range or circuit is defective

4. Immediately (.25 second delay) after the static test, the speed control servo does a dynamic test by automatically actuating the throttle lever from 8 mm (0.315 in) to 12 mm (0.472 in) of travel from the idle position. During the dynamic throttle pull, observe throttle movement to witness any binding or sticking of the speed control cable and correct connection of speed control cable to throttle lever. Make sure the throttle returns to the idle position.

5. Return the ignition switch to the OFF position and proceed to the Symptom Chart.

You don't have the stalk GM type CC switch, so clint969's post is good info, just for another manufacture.
The buttons ( if they are the problem ) can be removed from the steering wheel without pulling the steering wheel itself on a Ford.

Start with the recall, and then test the CC, and see if you have an issue still

1997 ford explorer ignition problem


Are you aware? you have the key and tumbler and another part under the dash on the steering column called the ingition switch.
They both have to be aligned in sync to operate properly.
Question? is this a tilt steering wheel,if it is and you dont know anything about it I suggest you get a professionel to do this kind of job.
You really have to know what your doing for this one.

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"

1992 explorer automatic hubs.Button in dash does not engage $ whe


I have the same problem with my 92' four liter explorer. I believe it has something to do with the transfer case motor behind the tranny. Under a pinch, I tapped on and around the transfer case
and tf motor, and the four-wheel drive engaged. I suspect it might be from loose wiring or a bad contact of some sort.
