Cruise Control Not Working

The cruise control in my recently purchased '01 Excursion isn't working. I've done a lot of searches on the forums and discovered there was a recall for a wiring harness: 2001 FORD EXCURSION Recalls

I called my local dealer and they stated there aren't any open recalls for this vehicle, so the previous owner must have taken care of it.

Is there any way I can verify that the warranty work was done? Can I visually inspect the harness?

Also, are there any ideas of what else I can check to fix the cruise control? The lights on the steering wheel are illuminated.

Thanks in advance!
-Eric

cficare is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Does the horn still blow with the motor running? When the CC went out on my '01, the horn also stopped working ... though the horn would blow with the engine off. In my situation, it was the GEM needing replacement, which also meant a new access code, and the dealer had to reprogram all my fobs & keys.

You may want to check VSS as well.

VSS is Vehicle Speed Sensor. GEM or PCM, I believe is the computer.

Check here with your VIN at Ford's website to see if any recall is still on the truck.

Check under the hood to see if the recall has been done.
On the master cylinder there is a switch.

Click the image to open in full size.


The switch may be on the top or underside of the master cylinder.
There will be a harness installed between the switch and the original wiring.


Click the image to open in full size.

That harness should have 2 fuses.
There is a fuse on both the power supply and the ground legs of the harness in the latest version of the recall fix.
