After market cruise control, locating VSS speed control wire and hot coil wire

I am trying to install the Audiovox CCS 100 vacuum cruise control on my 2006 Ford ranger w/ 2.3L - 4 cylinder automatic. I cannot find a wiring diagram that will give me the proper splice point for the VSS speed sensor wire as well as a +12V key on hot wire (coil?) Does this vehicle have a VSS send that will work for this application?

Go to a repair shop, or better check on your local library, there must be a manual there.

2011. Why has cruise control failed?

cruise controls are controlled by several units
VSS or road speed sensor, clutch and brake sensors , engine speed (tacho) and the on/off switch
cruise controls will disengage automatically if the road speed is too slow ( higher for manuals than autos ) so if the road speed is below around 20mph it may not engage at all as the VSS says it is too slow for the engine rpms
check all sensors for adjustment

Where is the location of the speed sensor on the 1999 v10 triton f250? Why does my speedo not work?

VSS Sensor The Vehicle Speed (VSS) Sensor input is used by the PCM to determine vehicle speed. The VSS generates a signal that increases in frequency proportionate to vehicle speed. The PCM has a base frequency stored in memory for a distance of one mile. By comparing the input and stored value, the PCM calculates vehicle speed.
VSS types include: photo-optic, permanent magnet generators or hall effect technology. The PCM may use other sensors on the vehicle (ABS Wheel Speed) to validate VSS operation.
VSS information is used to calculate vehicle loads including: torque converter application, cruise control, fuel cutoff/speed governance strategies, instrument panel speedometer and more.
Modified drivetrain components such as final gear sets and/or tires can alter VSS input values to the PCM. Improper signals can alter Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) application, shift points, cruise control operation as well as many other systems relying on vehicle speed input.

To avoid personal injury and/or vehicle damage, refer to the service precautions at the beginning of this section.

The Speedometer may not work due to a break in the wire for the VSS, or a bad VSS or a bad instrument cluster.
