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.

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.

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

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 ...

2007 Taurus cruise not working


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.

2007 suburban cruise control won't work


Check the wires and tube connections first. Then the fuses.
make sure they are all snug and ok. If they are, then the switch at the steering wheel has a problem (wire)- means a lot of messy work.
take steering wheel apart......
Or the actual cruise control unit under the hood has gone bad.

There is the possibility that one the computers is not working 100%.

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

First this only applies if your cruise buttons are on your steering wheel. If so look into a possible problem with the clockspring mounted in your steering column! Good Luck!

Lights out on steering wheel instruments of 200 Taurus


It sounds like you have some bulbs burned out in the cluster and cruise switches. I don't think you can just replace the bulbs in the switch. You can replace bulbs in the instrument cluster.

1989 plymouth horizon check engine light on


Code 34 is set when the computer does not detect a voltage to and through the speed control servo. The cruise control computer is built into the PCM, which grounds two windings in the servo mechanism to regulate the vacuum applied to the servo diaphragm.
Note: All Chrysler corporation fuel-injected engines have the computer circuitry and software for the cruise control system installed, even if there is no cruise control installed on the vehicle. If there is no cruise control installed on the care or truck, the computer will interpret this as an open winding and set code 34.
First: turn the key ON, turn the cruise switch ON, and look for +12 Volts on the dark blue/red wire that connects to the servo mechanism. This circuit is fed:
  • from the ignition switch through to 10 (dark blue wire)
  • from fuse 10 to the steering column (white/red wire)
  • through the clock spring to the cruise control ON/OFF switch on the steering wheel (white/red wire)
  • back through the clockspring to joint connect "C" (yellow/red wire)
  • to the brake lamp switch under the dashboard (yellow/red wire)
  • through the firewall from the brake switch (dark blue/red wire)
  • to the servo (dark blue/red wire) A break anywhere in this path (broken wire, bad brake switch, loose connector, etc.) will interrupt the 12 volt supply to the servo and set a fault code. Work backwards until you locate the break.
Turn the key OFF. Unplug the the connector from the servo and measure the servo coil resistances.
  • measure the resistance between the servo pin that connects to the tan/red wire and the servo pin that connects to the dark blue/red wire.
  • measure the resistance between the servo pin that connects to the light green/red wire and the servo pin that connects to the dark blue/red wire. The resistance in both cases should be above 0 ohms and less than infinity.
Disconnect the battery(s). Unplug the 60 pin connector from the PCM and check for continuity between the pcm connector and the servo connector for the tan/red wire (cavity 33) and the light green/red wire (cavity 53).
If no wiring problems are found, check the PCM connectors for corrosion, and reconnect. Reconnect the battery and test the circuit again. If the problem still exists, the PCM is probably bad. NOTE: Personally, if the truck was out of warranty I would try to find for a used servo before buying a new PCM.
