The same thing happened on my 2010 Corolla. I got in one morning and it was just popped out. I guess I must have knocked it by accident.

I called the service dept. since the car is only 6 months old and he said he never heard of it. I checked Totoyta forums and there was no mention of it. I look at my service manual to check which fuses may have been affected, etc. Then:

The fix!
I noticed there was a small Phillips head screw on the back of the cruise control stem on my steering wheel so I unscrewed it and looked at the button up close. I saw that it had 3 copper metal prongs and that one of them was bent backwards almost in half. After I bent it back the way it should go and screwed the back panel back on, it worked just fine.

I guess I must have just hit the stupid thing with my leg and knocked out the button. Then, after pushing the button back in, it must have just bent one of the 3 metal prongs so that it would no longer make an electric circuit.

Anyway, glad I could fix it on my own but it did kinda upset me that Toyota was not going to provide me with a free rental until they figured out what was wrong. Guess I was hoping for too much?

The cruise control switches are located on the steering wheel. When the cruise control is turned on there will be a green light luminated on the dash that says "cruise". When at the desired speed press "set" to set the cruise control at that speed.

The speed control no longer engages, I did checked the fuse and it's ok. The on/off cruise switch on the left side of the steering wheel does not luminate when the lights are turned on. Could it be the...

Some Fords have a pressure switch (it's round) on the end of the master cylinder for the brakes. Disconnect that switch for test purposes only. Now take it for a test drive does the cruise lock on now? If so that switch is bad. KEEP IN MIND the cruise will not kick off, when you touch the brake with that switch disconnected, DO NOT continue to drive it like that. Turn the cruise off with the "OFF" button.

What is Cruise Control and O/D

Cruise control allows the driver to push a button thereby setting and holding the car's current speed. This allows you to take your foot off the acceleratot pedal and "cruise." Modern "Cruise" systems also have added feature like increasing or decreasing your speed, and coasting so that you can adjust your speed for traffic or road conditions without exiting the cruise function. Touching the brake pedal automatically turns the cruise function off; or you can exit by turning cruise button to "off" at the touch of your thumb or fingertips. Cruise helps on long trips by reducing fatigue, and keeps you from going over the speed limit by setting your speed to the posted limit.

Hope this helps. I will address overdrive in another post. Thanks, TaterTodd
