SOURCE: cruise control

The cruise control should have a fuse in the interior fuse block, and a larger fuse and/or relay under hood in the relay center block. Test them with an automotive test light (You can purchase these for anywhere from $5.00 to $50.00 depending on the quality you want and the place of purchase).

If you find a bad fuse or primary fuse, obviously those need to be replaced. Relays can't be tested readily using the light. Unfortunately the simplest method for finding out if a relay is bad is to replace it. The relay for that cruise runs between $15.00 to $20.00 depending where you purchase.

Let me know how it goes and we'll see what more we can do!

SOURCE: how do i use cruise control on focus

The two left buttons on the left turn ON/OFF the system so that you can use the three right buttons to use the cruise control.

Once you turn ON the cruise, accellerate to the speed you want to travel. Once you reach the cruise speed, press the middle (set) button and the system takes over. As soon as you press the OFF key on th left, your car will coast / de-accelerate. ... or , if you tap on the brake pedal or press the brake pedal to stop, the cruise control will dis-engage.
Before you get into traffic, test the use of the system..
Also, the system may not be working, so it is important that you test it before you use in traffic.

I use mine 90% of the time, even in everyday driving, not just on the highway.

I have a 2011 ford focus se and the cruise control went out. could the fix be as easy as a relay replacement? or would it be the control?

Could be a bad fuse or relay, but one of the more common problems is the brake pedal "kick out" switch being dislodged or misadjusted.

2001 Ford Focus. What is the speed sensor's function?

If you are talking about the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) , it relays to the ECM (Electronic Control Module) what the vehicle speed is so that it can manage fuel mixture and transmission shift points as well as ignition timing. On some vehicles it also is used for the ABS system and for the cruise control and to make speedometer readings.

Cruise control does not work

HI, check the fuse in the fuse box under the dash on the driver side kick panel. if the fuse is ok, this will confirm an issue that will concern the cruse control module/amplifier and, Cruise servo. these components may need to be replaced.

The power solenoid could be affected as well. inspect the entire cruise control assembly under the hood if the fuse is ok.

I have a 2000 Focus SE 2.0 Ztec. The cruise control will not work. I get no light on the dash I have checked the fuses what do I need to check next? The cable is not off or broken. The horn works so is the...

the button for the switch has become faulty, recommend taking to dealer to replace as for the air bag in the steering wheel can explode.

How ever if you feel you can do it at home start the car and leave it running and replace the switch. while the car is running this will help prevent the bag from exploding cause the car will be in a "safe mode".
this is a fairly simple procedure that almost anyone can do.

During hot days in summer, car bogs and dies now in spring.

your fuel pump is going.

there was a 10 year unlimited mileage warranty on 2000 focus for this issue, but not sure if 2001 was included. The internal filters in the fuel pump clog and starve the pump. New stlye filters went into prodction but not sure if all of 2001 had the new design.
