Question about 2004 Ford Freestar

1 Answer

Ford Freestar 2004 cruise control: dash lamp flickers but does not stay on, cruise control does not engage.

(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.

SOURCE: 2004 ford sport trac - cruise control no longer works

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.

SOURCE: 2004 ford taurus cruise control not working even

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.

My cruise control does work, push button to set then nothing


After much research & frustration, I learned this seems to be a fairly common problem with the Freestar. (along with many other problems.) We replaced the Brake Pressure Sensor and it corrected the cruise control problem and the Traction Control light. I think the part was about $30. & we were able to replace it ourselves. Hope this helps!

Cruise control isn't working


I've seen this twice, once on my van and once on a friends car and both had to do with the brake switch or switch wiring. The brake switch is used to disengage the cruise control and if the switch is activated you won't get the cruise control function. You may see the CC light come on very briefly and go right off again in the switch situation as mine did, which came on the heals of the dealership working behind the dash. If I remember correctly a wire was broken on the brake switch connector. It could also be a maladjusted switch. Another area to consider is a correct speed sensor reading which tells the CC that you are at a minimum speed for engaging the CC. Beyond that it can get complicated if it's not a fuse or linkage connection issue.

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.

I own a 2004 ford freestar, where is the fuse located for the cruise control and what is the number of the fuse


The speed control system operates via the Smart Junction Box with various sensors over the SCP communications network.

The servo switch circuit is overload protected, but there does not appear to be a specific Cruise Control Fuse
