Worn out possibly or gummed button. Or does it stop working while in cruise control? Does the resume work and accelerate button during operation?

check your on and off button at the steering wheel.
use a multi-meter set in the ohm postion and see if there is conectivity as you push each button. you will have to take the button off the steering wheel but it will take
just a few minites. while your at it you can check the right side also.

Most at the time its a brake/cruise control swich located above brake pedal.Its might be shorted or pedal not pushing swich back enough for cruise to work.Anyway the swich is ajustable or replaceable.Ajust it so buton goes about 1/2 of its lengt in.

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.

If you turn the key on and the check engine light comes on then its not blown. If you start the car the light should go off within a few seconds. This desnt mean a code is not stored in memory. All it means is the problem may not of been seen twice in order for the light to stay on. You will need a data scanner to see whats going on with all your sensors. Its the only way to diagnose this. Also if you have a vacuum leak on the engine like a gasket leaking or a vacuum line not hooked up the cruise will be a problem. It could be a small crack in a vacuum line that only opens under certain conditions.

open the hood and check to see that the throttle cables are not out of place, if everything looks ok then unhook the cruise control cable from the throttle body (black plastic end) by pulling up on the cable end. this will disable your cruise control from making your car accelerate at unwanted times. sounds like there may be a problem with the cruise control servo.

We have a 1998 Ford Taurus that does the same exact thing. It mysteriously seems to do this randomly. We have an intermittent code for the camshaft sensor which I replaced. But, this didn't solve the problem.

I think it's a design flaw.

Hi,

1. there should be a 5A fuse for the dashoard lights in the fuse panel. Yes it may be cause by the dimmer switch.

2. Cruise control stop working. this may seem funny to you but make sur all your rear brake lights work. The way Ford cruise control system works, it uses resistance to engage the cruise, with a burnt brake light, the resistance changes and the module will not recognise the input.

3. try replacing the relay box on top of the radiator.

Hope this helps you out
