How do you disconnect the cruise control on a 1993 Mercury Cougar?
That all really depends on if you want to disconnect it or, remove it. I'm not sure how to remove it, but to disconnect it.... Find the throttle linkage under the hood, this is where you can move your throttle to increase your RPMs without being in the car. There will be 3 cables attache to it, 2 on the top and 1 on the bottom. The two on top should be connected together. The one on the bottom is the cable for your cruise control. Remove that cable and there you go. The cable is held on to the throttle body by a plastic bushing type clip, you can try to pull the cable out of this to remove it, but I would suggest breaking the bushing out in case you decided that you wanted to put it back on, the bushing would cost probably about $10-20 less to replace pending on where you go.
We had trouble with the cruise control on a 1991 Cougar. The plastic piece Spyder talks about broke and the cable fell out of the bracket. It may not happen, but the black plastic square piece on the cable looks like it could fall and get lodged between the throttle body, which would cause the accelerator to get stuck. I think we are going to try tying the cruise control cable's black plastic square piece off with a cable tie so it cannot block the throttle body. Might want to ask someone that knows for sure before you do this to be safe.
Remove the cruise control and unplug the pump. Simply disconnect the two plugs and pull the pump out of the fluid resevoir. Connect the hoses to the new pump, plug in the electrical connectors and plug the pump back into the resevoir. Make sure to hook the cruise control back up. All the controls on the steering wheel are ran through the cruise control. By not plugging the cruise back up, you will not have…
I have the exact same problem with my cougar and I know the solution. The cable that runs from the cruise control to the throttle body has probably either come off of where it should be or it has snapped in half. They are steel (I guess you could say braided) cables and mine is frayed so it's loose and it jumps off easily. I called the local Mercury dealer in town and they said…
What would cause the cruise control to stop working on a 1997 Mercury Tracer not a fuse is there a sensor?
If the cruise control system fails to power on, i.e. the light on the cruise control switch does not light, check the fuse. If the fuse is not blown, there may be a problem with the wiring or the cruise control module itself. If the system powers on but it fails to keep the vehicle at speed when engaged, the vacuum hose between the cruise control module and the actuator may be faulty. The cruise…

Your 94 Intrepid when running on highway Cruise control light comes on and you lose gas power and then about 10 seconds later you get control again you tried hitting off button but nothing happens?
To the left of the steering wheel, below the dashboard is a button that says cruise control. Push that button in, the dash will illuminate the cruise control light. Then, as you reach the speed you want to cruise at, push the button on the steering wheel that says "set". When you want to turn cruise control off, simply tap the brake pedal and the cruise will go off.
