Question about 2001 Ford Escape
I had the exact same problem on my 2002 Escape. If you remove the engine cover (3 bolts), you will see where the cruise control links to the the throttle body. If your problem is the same as mine, you will see that it is not connected. I believe it is intended to snap on, but it just doesn't stay. I temporarily snapped it in and wrapped electrical tape to prevent it from unsnapping. Worked like a charm.
Hope this helps.

Check for any vacumm hoses broken on the engine, check for fuses and cable.

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.
