    I have the same issue on my 95 Crown Vic. However mine seemed to go out right after replacing the PCV valve (it was sucking air). Not sure but it may have something to do with it.

I dont know if they had it in 96 but there is something called a speed control deactivation switch. Maybe check your owners manual about that.

2005 Ford Crown Vic, Cruise Control stopped working after I installed an aftermarket stereo. Alpine All-on-One


This sounds like as you have explained the removal of the factory fitted stereo is connected to the controls/ steering column by fitting the new stereo some electrical items remain unconnected. The volume control may be in circuit.
I have experienced this before on other models when fitting non factory extras.

Have a 1996 crown vic and the horn did work now it doesnt work along with the cruise control my fuese under the dash are good but not mark


If the horn nor the steering wheel mounted cruise control switches work, it is likely that the problem is the contacts that are in the steering wheel and the steering column that send the signal for these switches. You have a circular type contact that rotates with your wheel, and a stationary circular contact on you steering column that the steering wheel fits over. Good Luck. I hope you find this very helpful!

I have a 94 vic lx. Cruise control has worked fine. All of a sudden it stopped working, no cruise light on dash, fuses are good.


since the fuses are ok i would try the servo this is the piece that looks like two face. it has a solid back on one side and a rubber front on the other it should be around your master cylinder. check to make sure that the wires arent frayed or have come loose.

1988 Ford Crown Vic Horn Relay Location


The horn relay IS NOT located in a box toward the front of the engine. It is located just behind the radiator overflow reservoir and attached to the inner fender next to two other relays. It is the only one without a plastic cover over the top of it. FYI, our Crown Vic horn didn't blow, and the cruise didn't work. I changed the relay and still no horn. I decided to check the horns themselves. Found wires disconnected from terminals. Touched wire to horn terminal and horn blew incessantly. (previous owner had disconnected horn rather than diagnose why) Pulled the horn "button" from steering wheel and disconnected the wire leads and horn quit. Disassembled the "button" assembly. Foam had degraded over time between the contacts. (Ford has discontinued this part). Cleaned and replaced foam with Scotch foam mounting squares with holes punched out over contacts (2 layers thick). Re-assembled and viola! Horn and cruise control both work! Relay was bad as was horn button.

1988 Ford Crown Vic Lost Cruise Control


Although I don't think the cruise is an issue for safety, reach in under hood , or in grille area and find your horn(s) and just pull the connector off them temporarily, so they won't blow & put fuse back in and see if cruise starts to work again. It's not unusual for circuits to be labeled wrong or not at all in fuse panels. Then you can turn your attention to horn problem.

My '89 Crown Vic keeps blowing brake light fuses. Does fine until I use cruise control then blows fuse. Still has parking lights and signals but no brake lights. Has happened repeatedly. Now I don't use...


check under the dash st the brake pedal,there is a brake light switch which is tied into the cruise control,you could try unplugging that and see if it fixes the problem(remember you will have no brake lights while it's unhooked) if the problem is gone replace the switch.
