Cruise Control won't work!

Okay this is been a reoccurring problem.
My cruise control sometimes works and sometimes doesn't.
Sometimes if I push it hard and repeatedly it works, sometimes not. Now I can't get it work at all and I have an 18 hour drive in the AM early!

Please advise!!

Nothing like waiting until the last minute.... you'll need to use your right foot, there isn't sufficient time.

Well thanks for that!
I never use CC as I drive only in the city, that's why it's "last minute" because I didntbknow it was fully not functioning....
Now what is it I don't have time for?
I'd like to have the info so I can repair when I have time

Sounds like the problem I had with my old Sport Trac. What it was is the brake like switch that was attached to the pedal. We were on a trip and the cruise stopped working, I got under the dash and tapped on it with a screw driver and sprayed it with electrical cleaner. Worked great for about a year and I fixed it the same way again. To lazy to go buy a new one. Hope this helps.

If by push you mean the CC buttons, then I'd replace the switch assembly.

Hmm I'm really starting to think its the switch as sometimes it lights up and sometimes it doesn't, but it never stays on. I assume it's not getting power. Bad thing is I can wait to get one from Ford this morning but I'm assuming it will be crazy expensive?

Maybe the connector on the back of the switch isn't in all the way. That would explain why pushing on it hard can make it work.
