Cruise control on 2001 Lincoln Towncar

We replaced the servo, and the cruise light on the dash comes on when we try to set the cruise speed. However, we can't get the thing to work when we mash the set button. Thanks for any help.

Try pulling the brake pedal up with your toe and setting the cruise control while you hold it up with your toe. If it engages, stop holding the brake pedal up. It will either disengage immediately or after you hit a bump. Or if you step on the brake, of course.

There's a brake pedal sensor button on the steering column right where the brake pedal arm intersects it. I put a self]adhesive felt pad (buy at wal-mart, home depot, etc) on the pedal arm where it makes contact with the sensor button. Fixed. Been working fine for a year now.

When I turn on cruise control the light turns on but doesn't keep speed


Tera,

The light tells you that the electrics to the light are working - but cruise control in many cars relies on vacuum hoses and other mechanical and electro-mechanical components to work.

Additionally, if you have a brake or clutch issue - sensor in those sub-assembly circuits would automatically disengage the cruise control speed setting - but could leave the cruise indicator on.

The speed control light does not come on and the speed control does not work.


Fuse number 1 (15amp blue fuse) located under the dash is the primary fuse for the cruise control servo...check that first...Also, if i recall correctly there was a mandatory recall notice issued in 2005 for this model related to cruise control failures. Check with your local Lincoln Mercury dealer for more information. You will need your VIN number to see if the repairs on your vehicle have been made. Good luck, i hope this helps.

2001 F-150 cruise control stopped working. Already checked the fuse and it's good. What's next


really tough to do on the net but first we need to know about any codes...

Hold speed control OFF button, and turn ignition switch to RUN position. CRUISE indicator should flash once to indicate successful entry into self-diagnostic mode. If CRUISE indicator does not flash, start procedure over. If CRUISE indicator still does not flash, repair system by symptom there might be some switch concern

If CRUISE CONTROL indicator flashes once followed by 5 additional flashes, replace speed control servo/actuator.

Release speed control OFF button. Within 5 seconds in entering self-diagnostics, press speed control ON button. Press remaining speed control buttons in the following sequence; ON, RES, COAST and SET/ACCEL.

As each button is pressed, CRUISE indicator will flash.

Wait until indicator light goes out, then press next button. After sequence has been completed, indicator light will flash to indicate test passed or failed. With the codes we can then better diagnose your concern

Immediately after static test has passed, actuator performs a dynamic test by automatically operating throttle .04-.40" (1-10 mm). Observe throttle movement to witness any sticking in cable or linkage. Ensure throttle returns properly. Turn ignition switch to LOCK position. If self-diagnostics do not pinpoint fault there is more we can do but tough over the net

Cruise control, Every thing shows that its working. but no cruise control,the on/off buttons makes the dash light go on/off and the brake turns off the dash light.


check the linkage from the cruise servo to the throttle.
and make sure the vacuum servor is connected to the vacuum line and check that the servo is not leaking vacuum.

hope this helps
