Question about Ford Taurus
Servo replaced, fuses checked, deactivation switch replaced, steering wheel switches replaced,
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.

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
