First thing to do is check the cruise control fuse, then see if the chain or rod, or cable coming of the cruise vaccum plunger is connected to the throttle linkage and the wiring going to the relay that controls the plunger. If you do not find the problem then you will have to move on to the steering wheel. There are contacts that sometimes get dry and won't contact the brushes that contact the rings on the bottom side of the steering wheel. The steering wheel has to come off to check these.You can rent a steering wheel puller at an auto parts store. If the contacts are worn out or the ring are in bad shape, replace them both.
I hope this was of some help.

Cruise control wont engage after restarting vehicle


The fact that the light comes on is a good indication that the electronics are working, the most common problem is a vacumn leak. This can be a damaged or cracked vacumn line, a bad check valve, or the dump switch on the brake pedal

What causes my cruise controll to not work intermittenly


cruise control starts working above 50kmh, so if your under that it wont work. the cruise servo may be at fault, or I have seen battery acid leak down on the vacuum lines causing cruise not to work correctly. cruise control works off of a vacuum so without it, it wont work. if the cruise light doesn't turn on when pressing the set/cruise button intermitantly it may be the switch itself that is starting to fail

Ford focus cruise control


Once you have turned your cruise control on accelerate to desired speed press SET button on right hand side of steering wheel before lifting foot from accelerator, then remove foot from accelerator. pushing RESUME button will deactivate cruise control without turning it off. Then when clear of traffic push resume again to activate cruise control. It will automatically resume to previous set speed.

2007 chrysler 300c cruise control wont lock in and hold speed says i ts on the dash but is not engauging


.
Hello, "arthur o'neill".
Your car has parts under the hood to engage and control the throttle.
Those parts, as well as others, such as the speedometer,
and its cable must all be working properly,
for cruise control to work.
Either take it a mechanic, or get a 'shop manual',
for your particular model.

1996 f-250 cruise wont work


Take it into Ford. Fast. There was a recall on the cruise control modules failing and catching on fire. Seriously. They'll replace the module for free (or should). Probably worth a try-its better than your truck catching on fire.
