Question about 2004 Ford Freestar
(This happens at any speed). I press the cruise control ON switch, then the speed setting switch. The green cruise control lamp on the dash flickers but does not stay on. The cruise control does not engage. I noticed that on two occasions out of all my attempts, the lamp has stayed on solid and the cruise control has engaged and seems to work correctly. But on subsequent attempts, the lamp only flickers when I press the speed setting button and the cruise control does not engage.

This problem is most times caused by an open circuit in the rotating contact under the steering wheel, this part is called the clock-spring contact, it supplies a connection to the airbag and steering wheel controls like the cruise, horn and radio controls. I would check the fuse as well to cover the bases, it is fuse #9 in the passenger compartment fuse box, it is a 7.5 AMP

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.

Try pulling up the brake pedal with your foot,Sometimes your brake doesnt come back all the way,and the brake switch keeps the cruise from working.Also,check the fuse.If those answers dont help,It could be the swith itself is bad.Those can be bought at a parts store.

There are 2 connections to the throttle lever on the throttle body under the hood. One is for the gas pedal and the other is for the cruise control. The connection for the cruise control is the lower connection. The cable has a very weak retainer system. The retainer clips wear until the cable breaks away from the throttle. To get at this area, you must remove the plastic shield that is held on with 2 push pins. Just pry the push pins up and out of their holes and the cover comes loose. You must either replace the cruise control cable (~$35.00) or reattach the cable end and use a wire tie to keep it from coming off again.
