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!

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.
