If you did not get an owners manual with your truck ( purchased used ), you can download one from Ford :
This is the owners manual, not a service manual.

Don't know if you were looking for this to check the fuses, that is question on the symptoms.

The Cruise Control, did you have the recall done on it ?
recall 05S28. Description: Speed Control Deactivation Switch.

If so, it could be the fuse is blown from leaking fluid. Quick test, unplug it from the master cylinder pressure switch, and jumper the 2 pins in the connector. This removes the pressure switch from the equation.
With the jumper in place, run the Cruise Control self test :
Self-Test Diagnostics

This test is a key on engine off (KOEO) test only that is conducted in park only with emergency brake fully engaged.

1. Enter self-test diagnostics by depressing the speed control OFF switch while turning the ignition key ON, making sure the engine does not start and is not running. The speed control indicator on the instrument panel will flash once to indicate that speed control module entered the diagnostic mode. Five additional flashes at this point indicate a defective speed control servo. Release the OFF switch.

2. Press the remaining switches in this sequence: ON, RESUME, COAST and SET/ACCEL.

If the ON switch is not depressed within five seconds after entering the diagnostics mode, the module times out and the procedure must be started over.

The speed control indicator lamp will flash as each switch is depressed. Press each switch in the sequence immediately after the indicator light goes out for the previous switch.

There will be a slight delay when the last button is pressed and the lamp flashes.

3. A lamp flash with the last button (SET/ACCEL) indicates that the static test passed. If the lamp does not flash with the last button and there are no additional flashes of the lamp, the switch is defective.

If the lamp does not flash with the last button, and additional flashes occur, follow the chart below for trouble codes:

— 2 flashes - BPP defective, circuit is defective, brake applied, CPP switch or jumper (if equipped).

— 3 flashes - deactivator switch is open or circuit defective.

— 4 flashes - vehicle speed signal is out of range or circuit is defective

4. Immediately (.25 second delay) after the static test, the speed control servo does a dynamic test by automatically actuating the throttle lever from 8 mm (0.315 in) to 12 mm (0.472 in) of travel from the idle position. During the dynamic throttle pull, observe throttle movement to witness any binding or sticking of the speed control cable and correct connection of speed control cable to throttle lever. Make sure the throttle returns to the idle position.

5. Return the ignition switch to the OFF position and proceed to the Symptom Chart.

If you cannot enter the test, it could be the fuse in the harness is blown, and you will need a new harness.

The 4x4 issue
Lift and support the front of the truck so the front wheels are off the ground ( take safety precautions, chock wheels, jack stands, etc )
Key on, engage 4x4 and try to turn the front drive shaft.
If it turns it is a problem with the transfer case.
If it doesn't it is a front axle engagement problem.

Report back the results of the test on the front axle, to see which way to go next. 90% of the time, it is a vacuum shift diaphragm on the front axle that is not operating ( could be the vac lines, or the shift solenoids ).
After the front axle test, lower the truck back on the ground, start the engine, and have someone ( with foot on brake pedal, and truck in Park ) shift into 4WD. You should see the shift motor move.
You are looking for this on the front axle

2006 chevy trail blazer cruise contol does not work. Cant find a fuse under hood or under back seat. Help

Your owners manual should show you where the fuses are located. If you don't have an owners manual, you can go to, type in your year--make--model and hopefully read your owners manual for free.
Do the brake lamps work ok?
I found these fuses, not only check fuses, check for voltage on fuse circuit, use a test light. Some fuses are hot all the time, some go hot with the key on.
Any codes for the cruise system?

My 2001 Ford F150 4x4 cruise control has went out. I had the oil changed Friday then sat. going down the road I went to set my cruise but the light came on then went right off and never came on and it will...

These are the fuses, if you think the problem is a fuse. Not only check the fuse, use a test light and check voltage on fuse circuit.
Your owners manual should give the exact location of fuses in fuse box. If you don't have an owners manual you should be able to read one for free at, If it doesn't have the owners manual for your vehicle, let us know.
Any applicable trouble codes relating to your cruise control?

How do i turn on the cruise control for a 96 land rover discovery??

Like many cruise control systems there are the working controls and sepearate master power switch that can disable cruise control so it can't be turned on accidentally. The working controls to set speed, acc and off are on the steering wheel. There is a master power switch though on the center area of the dash next to the left of heater controls on a US model. It is a picture of a road running straight under an overpass.

The system is vaccumm controlled though and if you have a vaccumm leak it will not work. They are pretty easy to fix though and easy to see. Open the hood and find the throttle body assembly. Look for the throttle cable and in that area there should be a black soft plastic hose about the thickness of a pen. If this is diconnected from any connectors or cracked the cruise control won't work. Good Luck!

4-ways,signal and brake lights dont work

Canadian, The switch will run you $150 ( non cruise control ) to $250 ( with cruise control). Then what ever labor rates are in you area could run $80 to $180 to replace.
Hope this helps.
By the way, why do you believe the switch is bad?
Let me know.
