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.

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!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
