Question about 1987 Ford Mustang
And what type of vehicle is that? Surely, in ur replacement of a booster and master cylinder you could have accidentally pinched a wire leading to the cruise control. Trace and check carefully if the booster is making contact with any cables or wires around the vicinity of the booster. If you can't find anything wrong with the wiring, then check that the tailshaft still have a set of magnets strapped or attached with to it. The magnets are usually seen by looking under the car, closest to the gearbox. There is also the pick-up coil close to the magnets. Check if the pick-up coil or the magnets are not damaged of lost. Usually Magnets come apart if the tailshaft revs higher than the revolution it can take, such as when coasting downhill at more than 100 mph. Mine did just that. I coasted my Valiant down a mountainside road and when I was on flat road I re-activated the cruise control and.. it was not working. Then I traced and checked the problem underneath the car and found that the magnets were gone.
So, check if you've pinched a wire while you had installed the booster.
