Cruise control problems

I have a 1996 PSD with a E4OD Tranny. The cruise control quit working and I am trying to figure out what is wrong. The truck does not have an airbag- does this mean there is no clock spring under the steering wheel cover? I did not see any screw holes that would the steering wheel cover to be removed. How does this come off? Where would the CC sensor module be located? I would appreciate any helpful ideas.

Check the fuse for the cruise, and also make sure all your brake lights are working, especially the third light up on the back of the cab. The steering wheel cover just pulls off. Just get a hold of it and pull it straight back toward you.

The "sensor" is the PCM. It simply keeps a constant check on the speed, and adjusts the fuel accordingly.

Is this a van?

Does your horn work? My 96's cruise quit and I found the fuse for the horn blown and the cruise started working again.

Then there's no air bag. The "clockspring" is just a set of contact rings. Possible it's at fault, but the switch on the master cylinder is a prime suspect (cf. the "cc recall" comment above).

X 2 on the switch located on the master cylinder (that the recall harness attaches to).

Cruise Control

I did take the truck to the local Ford dealer and had the piece changed on the master cylinder. The horn does work. I don't know about the third light since I work by myself. I still need to check the fuses.

I use a sledge hammer or big bar to push the brake pedal down to see the brake lights.

haha, that's right! Anything that's the right length up against the seat or back of the steering wheel to hold the pedal down. I personally got tired of asking my wife for help. She would say, 'just a minute'. An hour later she comes out, LOL.
