Ok, there are two issues. one could be a fuse that you can exchange out with a working one. secondly, this could be a sensor that is connected to the cruise control assembly under the hood. i would pop the hood to see if the cruse control assembly has became stuck or the cable may have been severed as well.

I had the same problem on mine - just check the end of the cruise control cable under the big plastic cover of the engine. good luck!

03 Escape radio volume raises by itself. What could be the problem ?


Assuming your truck has cruise control, this has been a common thing with these vehicles. The radio's volume is designed to increase if the vehicle's Body Control Module sensed that:
-you rolled a window down
-you accelerated
Ford's recommended repair is to reprogram the BCM. Runs about $90-120 at most dealers.

Cruse control quit working cannot determine which fuse to check on 2005 escape


Look under the hood at the throttle. There should be another cable that hooks to it. That is for your cruise control. Alot of times it will fall off causing your cruise control not to wwork.

Cruise control ford escape 2002. ford escape


If the cruise lamp comes on and the cruise does not set i would advise inspecting the cruise cable and make certain it is not broken, if ok the the servo has likely failed.

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.

I have a 2001 ford escape and the cruise control does not work the indicator light comes on but it will not set


I had the exact same problem on my 2002 Escape. If you remove the engine cover (3 bolts), you will see where the cruise control links to the the throttle body. If your problem is the same as mine, you will see that it is not connected. I believe it is intended to snap on, but it just doesn't stay. I temporarily snapped it in and wrapped electrical tape to prevent it from unsnapping. Worked like a charm.
Hope this helps.

The cruise control on my 2001 ford escape doesn't function at all. Pressing any button to even turn it on yields no results. Any ideas as to why it won't respond?

Cruise control not working


Fuse is marked "ASC" 10A Speed Control (passenger compartment fuse box), most likely this will not be the problem, and if th fuse blew then there is a short and it won't work, the most common cause is the cruise control switch circuit.

Cruise control quit working


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
