Cruise Control

  1. It doesn't work. Anyone have any suggestions to what to look at before I take it to the dealer?

    *note: hasn't worked since i've owned the car.
     
  2. Look for the guy that sold it too you!

    Seriously, pop the covers off and see what's behind them. Maybe as simple as a non-functional On/Off switch, or a loose wire.
     
  3. My friends stang had cruise control and it broke too... is this common or something?
     
  4. check the fuse first off!
     
  5. All the fuses are good. Everything is hooked up good. However, under my dash there was a grey connector that's just dangling there and I couldn't find anything for it to connect to so I have no idea what it is for.
     
  6. don't need no stinking cruise......put a brick on the pedal and go
     
  7. Its cheaper to pay an auto electric shop to figure out whats wrong then if possible fix it your self. I just did one on my stang last spring, the sevro unit was NFG and it's located under the left front fender tucked up against the fire wall. It's a pain in the ass to swap out. I also just replaced the same unit on a 93 Areostar mini van much easier to get at. If its the sevro unit it'll run you maybe $50 to $60 bucks at a wreckers, new $300 to $400 from Ford!
     
  8. Can I just take out all the cruise wiring and stuff from the dash back? If it's not going to work, and I don't care too much if it does or doesn't, I might as well get rid of some of the clutter.
     
  9. Don't just get rid of them! Atleast rewire them to be a volume up/down and cd/radio/dvd controls, much more useful then cruise control anyway I think
     
  10. I didn't think about that. I was mostly referring to the crap attached to the throttle body.
     
  11. He may not use it much, but If you paid for it, you still want to to work.

    My Stepdad had a Camry, bout it in 88 brand new, used the cruise control once in 97 and the thing never worked again.
     
  12. Cruise Control Inoperative:

    Blown fuse
    Short or open in the cruise conrol circuit
    Faulty brake or clutch switch
    Leaking vacuum circuit
    Faulty cruise control switch
    Faulty stepper motor
    Faulty transducer
    Faulty speed sensor
    Fulty cruise control module
     
  13. My 98s cruise has been out of commision since 99. I've checked the fuses and discovered that ford mislabeled the fuses in the car, owners manual, and even the shop service manuals (At least on the 98s). The fuse for the cruise is good, but cruise control don't work.The fuse that is supposed to be for the powered drivers seat is blown, and blows immediately every time I replace it, yet the seat still works. It's been a couple years since I looked at it, but I beleive the cigarette lighter is supposed to on the same fuse as the seat and the lighter doesn't work. Very strange.
     
  14. That sounds like a short to me.
