    I'd I remember correctly this is a cable driven setup. If someone performed a repair or service and the cable was removed from the Throttle body that may be the issue. F150's had an issue with the brake pressure sensor mounted on the master cylinder. The sensor would short internally due to brake fluid leaking through the diaphragm. The way to check the sensor is to use an ohm meter and check continuity across the sensor with it unplugged. If the sensor is faulty or will not allow the cruise to engage.

If the cruise lamp comes on and the cruise does not set i would advise inspecting the cruise cable and make certain it is not broken, if ok the the servo has likely failed.

Also check if there are any open recalls on your escape. There was one involving the cruise control/throttle linkage binding up due to inadequate clearance under the plastic engine cover. This may or may not be the cause of your issue, but the recall repair is free at any Ford dealership.

The cruise control stopped working on my 2002 ford escape.any ideas?


Before over thinking this have you checked under the hood to verify the cable is still connected. you will have to remove the engine cover (8mm socket). On top of the engine should be two cables that run to your throttle. Over time the cruise control cable snaps can fail and the cable will come loose. A cheap simple fix is cable ties if this keeps happening.

Faulty Deactivation Switch for Cruise Control


No coincidence Pal. That cutout switch is part of the brake light switch and is easy to replace. It just screws into a bracket at the brake pedal lever and has a jamb nut on it to lock in position. Just get one from a parts store and replace it yourself.

Cruise control will not engage


pull the plastic cover off the top of the engine and check where the cable from the cruise control connects by the throttle body. There is a plastic connector that might be broken. i had the same problem and a piece of tape fixed it for me but you can replace the part if your picky.

I have a 2001 ford escape and the cruise control does not work the indicator light comes on but it will not set


I had the exact same problem on my 2002 Escape. If you remove the engine cover (3 bolts), you will see where the cruise control links to the the throttle body. If your problem is the same as mine, you will see that it is not connected. I believe it is intended to snap on, but it just doesn't stay. I temporarily snapped it in and wrapped electrical tape to prevent it from unsnapping. Worked like a charm.
Hope this helps.

Cruise control quit working


The tip that connects the accelerator cable to your throttle for the cruise control may be broken. I have had that problem before. The light won't come on cause your cruise isn't engaged

How to set cruise control


cruise control on your escape will work at 30 mph and up. Press 'on 'button, then press gas pedal 'til u reach desired speed, press 'set acc' and you'll be cruisen. You can also do it this way, press 'on' button, then press and hold 'set/acc' button, car will accelerate, let go of button when u reach desired speed. Putting on brakes will deactivate cruise, u can then press 'RSM' to resume speed.
