This is just a guess and they can keep my point if I'm wrong :) but I would start looking around the cruise unit itself under the hood for loose plugs or, in some cases loose vacuum hoses. Some cruise units use engine vacuum for unit actuation, some use it as an indicator of engine speed though now it's mostly sensors and servo actuators operated by computer. I can't speak directly about your unit but sometimes, in all brands of vehicles, when you change something that is computer controlled, you have to reprogram the computer so it can accurately sense and operate the part or machine. Good luck. Jeff M.

Testimonial: "It was the clock spring. replaced it and it is now working with the exception of the cruise control light does not come on. as long as the CC works, I can live with no CC light. Thanks."

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.

SOURCE: Replace Cruise Control Switch in Steering Wheel

I am describing the procedure for the "On/Off" switch, I did not try the one you mention. Buy the switch anywhere ( about $15 ), then use a sharp tool ( small knife, screwdriver, anything ) to gently pry the old one from its socket. It is not glued or screwed in or anything, just squeezed tightly in the socket. Once the switch is out, pull the cable, connect it to the new one, insert back in the socket and press gently. No force necessary, it comes out easily.

no you should not have to there a 2 covers that surround the collumn then you should be able to change out the cruise. Especially on newer cars James be careful on these believe it or not everything is controlled by those wires in the collumn. If you need any more go to collisionrepairadvice.com

How to repair cruise control?


Try from Servo control follow connection To I beleive Transmission casing . Look for Burnt wiring / frayed / damaged ...Cruise should maintain speed signal Like speedo cable . Computor management black box / ECM may have direct control so Look for engine bay fuse boxes = 2 under hood . More fuses ++ relays 2 check inside cover is diagram of size + what it controls . A Reset 2 ecm may help by disconnecting Battery - Let sit 30 mins.. Older models + 4 wheel drive Trans has Gear wheel of plastic 2 count revolutions as speedo cable does . If said wheel teeth have worn out then Cruise counts incorrect or fails 2 activate . If you replaced brake pedal Light activation switch then be sure brake Tail lights DO work if not the cruise will fail as brake pedal is part of safety feature to turn it off in emergency disconnect . The signal light Stalk that Turns off L / R signals is Common Item 2 wear out BUT it also controls Turning on cruise or setting ...IF you have Steering wheel on / off / setting control - then issue can be frayed / cut wires due 2 steering wheel movement ....solutions remove wheel BUT 1 st disconnect Air Bag Fuse then wheel and search connections .....Good Luck ...

Cruise control stop working light dont show on dash can a fuse be out if so where is it located


There are three fuse's in the smart junction box , do you know where it is ? It's under the dash panel left side ! The fuse's are F2.27- 10amp , F2.32 - 10amp , F2.17 - 15 amp . They power the speed control servo ! Maybe the control switch's on the steering wheel don't work.
A little back ground on the system ! Speed Control The vehicle speed control system consists of the following components:
  • Brake pedal position (BPP) switch
  • Speed control actuator cable
  • Speed control switches
  • Speed control deactivator switch
  • Speed control indicator
  • Speed control actuator
  • Smart junction box (SJB)
  • Principles of Operation
    The speed control system is designed to maintain vehicle a set speed above 48 km/h (30 mph). After the speed control ON switch is pressed, pressing the speed control switch SET/ACCEL will activate the speed control actuator. To increase a set speed, either press and hold for continuous acceleration, or momentarily tap the speed control switch SET/ACCEL for 1.6 km/h (1 mph) acceleration increments. To decrease a set speed, press and hold the speed control switch COAST until the target speed is reached, or momentarily tap the speed control switch COAST for 1.6 km/h (1 mph) deceleration increments. When the speed control system has been disabled by tapping the brake pedal, the speed control switch RESUME can be pressed and the vehicle will return to the original set speed if the vehicle is traveling over 48 km/h (30 mph) and the speed control switch OFF has not been pressed.
    NOTE: The deactivator switch is provided as an additional safety feature. Normally, when the brake pedal is pressed, an electrical signal from the brake lamp circuit to the speed control actuator will deactivate the system. Under increased brake pedal effort, the deactivator switch will open and remove power to the speed control actuator, releasing the throttle independently of the speed control actuator.
    NOTE: The clockspring provides the electrical interface between the steering column wiring and the speed control switches in the steering wheel.
    The inputs to the speed control actuator are:
    • Vehicle speed signal
    • Speed control switches
    • Brake pedal position (BPP) switch
    • Deactivator switch
    The outputs of the speed control actuator are:
    • Speed control indicator lamp
    • Speed control actuator cable controlling the throttle position
    • Inspection and Verification
      NOTE: If any concerns are noted with the speedometer, stoplamps, or horn, address those concerns by referring to the appropriate sections before continuing speed control diagnosis.
      1. Verify the customer concern by operating the speed control system.
      1. NOTE: Any aftermarket modifications, including but not limited to those listed below, may cause the speed control to not operate correctly:
        • Any wiring or lamp modifications affecting the brake lamp operation
        • LED brake lamps
        • Non-factory installed trailer wiring
        • Radios (speed sensitive, auto mute)
        • Remote starters and alarms
        • Lighting and electrical accessory modifications
        Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical or electrical damage:
        • Visually inspect the speed control actuator and accelerator controls.
        • Visually inspect the speed control cable without removing it and ensure smooth cable operation. Inspect the speed control cable connection to the throttle body.
        • Visually inspect the accelerator cable without removing it and ensure smooth cable operation. Inspect the accelerator cable connection to the throttle body. Also check for cable interference with the carpet, bulkhead grommet, insulation and instrument panel wiring.

2007 Taurus cruise not working. I've have checked the fuses, replaced the switches on the steering wheel, replaced the servo, and replaced the deactivation switch on the brake pedal. Any other suggest


While you\'re still blindly changing parts, just go to pull a part and pull a body control module, a cruise control module, and an engine computer. Send me all the stuff you change out that doesn\'t fix anything, I can test them and sell them.By then, you should have enough money for a mechanic in used part sales.

2007 Avalanche cruise control doesn't work even though the steering wheel switch is lit. Fuse is not blown and backup camera works.


i just had the same problem, it started after having to get a "jump start" for a low battery. after checking the fuse(under the hood #43) I disconnected the battery for about 60 seconds to let the computers reset. works fine now. don't know the original cause of the low battery, or the fault but don't want to pay the dealer service charge for doing the same thing...hope this helps ..billy

Cruise control for 1994 mercury sable four door sedan not working


There are numerous things that can cause this. A fuse, a vacuum leak, a bad switch in the steering column. The switch in the steering column is usually the culprit but is also the hardest and most expensive to change. Best way to find out is to plug it into a computer and see if it reveals any trouble codes.
Also of the many things that can go wrong outside of replacing the servo controller.
Check the servo deactivation switch. Located on the brake pedal arm under he dash. This will require you to remove the black plastic duct fot shield to expose the under dash area. It only has 4 plastic speed grommets. You will see to switches on this brake arm.
The lower one activates the brake lights. The upper one deactivates the cruise control and is a common failure in 1998-2002 Ford mercury Crown Vics and Marquis. Remove the connector(also known as connector c223), and check the continuity of the switch opened or closed. It should change from infinite to a short using a standard voltage meter set to ohms or continuity and pushing the brake pedal.
Also Fuse number 1 (15amp blue fuse) located there under the dash as well, is the primary fuse for the cruise control servo. In most cases you will see this ok
