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!

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret

      Thanks, I'm excited about it too. I've fished those lakes and know for a fact that the existing maps are at best incomplete, and occasionally plain wrong. So I'm really looking forward to seeing what the data shows.

      Not sure about KAXE , but WEVE from Virginia comes in. They are so bad, they are almost good! Their tag line was "Not too hard, and not too soft" to which I add "and not too good" If you want to hear schmaltzy drek from the 80's then tune in.

      Very cool project.  I just got back from up there, and I'll be up again on another solo the first week of May.  I'll check back if I decide to enter near Ely.

      Eyeguy - what size weight are you using at the Miss?  Are you using a bullet weight and a worm hook to hold your crawler?   Cret
