Recently the cruise control stopped working. Thinking that maybe the recall would repair this issue it has not. I have checked fuses several times and all are good. I tried getting info from Haynes manual and a DVD from a Ford service manual that was purchased on e-bay but has no dignosis lititure on this. Could you guys help me out?
Yes you could run a switch test with AE, but I'm willing to bet it's the CPP (clutch pedal position) switch. You can pick one up at the local parts store pretty reasonable. The worn springs won't keep the truck from starting.
Go ahead and pull it out and look inside there. Do you see one long spring on each side, or what appears to be multiple springs stacked on each other or broken like this
Ok guys I fell like where going around in circles here. The Cruise Control (Speed Control) does not work the truck starts fine the MPH gauge and RPM gauge works fine. Your telling me that these sensors are causing the problem or one of them.
i had the SAME problem...starts fine, ran fine...it was the clutch pedal switch. the part is like 80 plus dollars from ford, so i just made jumper wires and connected them to the connectors. there are 4 connections, if i remember, the first 2 get hooked together and the last 2 get hooked together.
NOTE: the truck will NOW START WITHOUT THE CLUTCH DEPESSED. make sure you depress the clutch or put the truck in neutral.
i have also heard that the 3rd brake lite being burned out could cause a no cruise condition. no positive about this, but jim rat49f6 told me it happens.
Standard 6-speed. If this switch was bad the truck would not wont to start.
Not necessarily. I have replaced mine 3 times (i used to have a windshield leak, which ruined them) and it would always start, but I could tell it was time to replace it when it either dropped out of cruise, or would not engage cruise.
Ok thanks guys I understand now. It was just a little vage for me why it could be the switch make since know depress clutch pedal shuts off high idel and cruise. Duh on it right know to have a look see.
