There has been a few conversations about the ford recall concerning the cruise control lately. I know there is an issue with the switch on the master cylinder. This may or may not be the source of your problem.

We have some good ford guys here and I'm sure they will chime in when there get a chance.

Try to lift your brake pedal with your foot, even if it seems up, then set cruise. Sometimes the brake switch gets off adjustment and won't let cruise engage.

It happened to me once, was an easy fix, but took forever to find out.

I will try that valv....thanks. I had the recall done, but that didn't fix anything, that was just installing a fuse. any other ideas??

Pull off the wire connector where that new fuse link connector plugs into the break switch, if the break switch connector is full of break fluid it is bad. I just went through this with ford and they replaced the switch under the recall. I have a sheet on the recall if you want it.

My first step of diagnosing cruise controls start with-

1) checking master cylender switch for fluid, is it leaking?

2) does the horn blow?

3) does all the brake lights work?

4) is the airbag light on?

5) check fuses, all ok?

After this it gets more technical!

check power and ground at servo

Check resistanse of cruise switch at the servo

check cruise cable

If all that is ok, then it most likely needs a servo!

      I never got around to scouting it, wish I would have. I spent a lot of time in Dunes and other small WMA scattered in the 601 zone to take advantage of the unlimited antlerless harvest. I know there is some good duck hunting to be had in Sherburne too if I can get away from the idiots. That seems to be a difficult task when waterfowl hunting within a 20 mile radius of the metro.

      Lots of mayflies now.  Larvae were coming up two weeks ago and now good amounts of sheds on the water.  Fishing has been great for those willing to move around and find active fish.  Start looking to first reefs off islands and shorelines as fish are starting to move to them.  30ft for us was good. Leeches.  2-3ft snell.  Plain hook.  Caught quite a few yesterday.  Good size range.  Kabetogama

      Besides there's 3 nice ramps there. 1 on the west, 2 to the east of the bridge.

      Good pretty good. Went out from the northwest side I think Garrison. Made our way to eight mile was able to go full-throttle the majority of the way but when the waves got too big has lower down. My buddy went looking for a drift sock but couldn't find one so we used a five-gallon bucket which work fairly well glad we had at least that. Well we are drifting it was perfectly fine but a pain in the butt trying to motor back up through the big waves. Then after some time sitting out there I had enough of sitting on those big waves and told my buddy that we needed to get closer to shore. The right back was very slow going and wet. Started to get a little concerned when my bilge pump stopped working and the back of my boat started to fill up especially when I was finally able to give it more throttle man the back of the boat was full of water but we made it back I got a new bilge pump and everything was all good quite the experience but I'll be back there again with my boat. And good thing we had back when we did there was barely any gas left in the tank.

      We are headed out in yaks from st cloud to clearwater, with clearwater outfitters. Was looking for some posts about the river, looks like it will be a pretty nice float from your pics

      Any new info on locations and bait preferences? Depths? Reefs? Minnows, worms or leeches? Heading up Saturday. Thanks
