There is not a fuse for the CC itself, only the brake light fuse and the speed control deactivation switch ( on the top of the brake pedal lever ).

The deactivation switch is from fuse # 14, 10A.

Did you change the Stop / Turn bulbs to LEDs without the load resistors ? Usually the CHMSL ( Center High Mount Stop Lamp ) as a standard bulb is enough to keep the CC working, when doing LED Stop / turn bulbs.

The deactivation switch has the switch in the closed position to the PCM, when the brake is off.
Could also be this switch if the fuse tests good with a meter.

Check for power on both sides of the deactivation switch

Fuse #14 - Light Blue w/ Pinks stripe wire - deactivation switch - black w/ yellow stripe wire - PCM.

Cruise control isn't working

I've seen this twice, once on my van and once on a friends car and both had to do with the brake switch or switch wiring. The brake switch is used to disengage the cruise control and if the switch is activated you won't get the cruise control function. You may see the CC light come on very briefly and go right off again in the switch situation as mine did, which came on the heals of the dealership working behind the dash. If I remember correctly a wire was broken on the brake switch connector. It could also be a maladjusted switch. Another area to consider is a correct speed sensor reading which tells the CC that you are at a minimum speed for engaging the CC. Beyond that it can get complicated if it's not a fuse or linkage connection issue.

My Cruise control quit working in my 2005 Ford F-150 what could it be? I have checked the fuse box and it doesn't tell me what fuse it is. What can i do to fix it?

Did you replace your stop / turn lamps & CHMSL ( Center High Mount Stop Lamp ) with LED lights ?

If so, the truck sees this as the brake lamps are out, and the CC will not work.

The 2 items that are serviceable without a NGS computer ( high end scan and test gear ) is the on / off switches and the CC disconnect switch on the brake pedal.

1. The on / off switch, does the horn still work ? Thinking maybe clock spring here.

2. The CC disconnect switch is on the top of the brake pedal ( not the brake pedal position switch / shift interlock lower on the pedal- this has 2 wires to it ). Test with a meter if the CC disconnect switch turns on and off.

The remainder of the Cruise Control system is integrated into the throttle by wire system, no cables or vacuum lines specific to the CC.

Cruise control hard to engage and then kicks out at any time.

Until you rectify the fault DO NOT DRIVE WITH CC ENGAGED FOR ANY REASON!
3 possible causes off the top of my head.
1. Defective Dash Control switch.
2.All CC devices are over ridden by the Brake system.
Have you got a defective BRAKE LIGHT switch
3. Dirty or Burned Circuit fuse.
Best of luck in your endevours.

Cruise control stopped working

check brake switch under dash above the brake pedal. See if sensing wires are broken . or if it uses a duplicate switch sensor check it is engaging properly. Also check you tube on possible failures.
Also in the engine bay the cable from the accelerator petal will attach to the trottle on the engine. Check for another cable at this location from the cruise control and check the cable is not broken .

Check brake globes are functioning and are not blown as well.
