How do you repair the cruise control on a 1994 Ford Explorer XLT that works for 2-3 days only after driving on wet roads?

I have a '90 Mustang with cruise control. Mine wasn't working - the EEC IV code said "Speed Controller not working". I found that the plug was unplugged from the gearbox by the speedo cable. My guess, and it's only a guess, is that your plug is plugged in correctly, but not contacting properly - after a while, the water gets into the plug/socket and makes the contact. Get underneath the motor and check the connections are clean and tight. Also, try using a computer tester to drag the codes out of the ECU - it may give a better answer.

Check for vaccum leaks a pinhole can make cruise fail only sometimes,and when you climb a hill you decellerate and never go back to your original set speed good luck

The repair will depend on what part of the cruise control is broken.

Hello, Can't think of ideas of how you can break you're cruise Control repair, but the best thing to do is go to B and B (body and paint Fire Stone. Excedrea excedera) and see if they can repair the cruise control button and that's the easiest way to go but if the cruise control is really broken you might want to swap out the steering wheel

take it to a mechanic. Cruise control repairs are pretty difficult and unless you are real good and know what you are doing I would not mess with it.

First you need to troubleshoot the 1994 LeSabre cruise control. Check the fuse, the cruise switch, the linkage, to find where the problem is. Check the vacuum lines on the engine as a vacuum leak can cause the cruise to not work properly.

Um, are you trying to install cruise on a car that didn't come from the factory with it? Or are you trying to replace/repair an existent system?FriPilot

Find out what's wrong, then repair it or replace it. There, that was simple. And the fact is, that's what ALL repairs are about. Cruise control problems are often quite simple, such as a faulty brake light switch or cruise control activation switch or even a poorly adjusted cruise control module. But you'll need to start looking at the individual components and find out which part isn't doing what it's SUPPOSED to be doing.

If you have a manual transmission the stop button on the clutch switch may have broken apart, replace the stop button to fix the cruise control. You can get one at any Nissan Dealership.

as it says here you could check the vacuum cable. I have the same problem on the same car.

Hopefully, you have had the cruise control module recall work done. It's free at any Ford, Lincoln or Mercury dealership. It can start a fire and be very dangerous. Take it to dealership right away.

My Haynes repair manual ( 1991 thru 2001 Ford Explorer ) shows on 1995 and newer that the balljoints on upper and lower control arms are not removable or serviceable . If a balljoint is damaged or worn , replace the control arm . ( my Chilton repair manual also shows the same information )

Basically get the emission code at the repair shop, get it fixed, and reset the code. Some codes in Subaru involve Cruise Control light flashing. In my case, that happened due to a misfire on 3-rd cylinder (replaced the ignition coil), and EVAP system leak (bad fuel pump gasket). In both cases, after the repair has been done, the code was reset, and the cruise control light never blinked after that.

Remove the temperature control switch wiring harness. Remove the temperature control switch retaining screws. Reverse the process to install the new temperature control switch.

Is your car on the re-call list for the cruise. Check with your local Ford dealer. They have to change the cruise module. No charge, even for that year. The old one, possible can cause a fire or short out.

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 control module can be found at the rear of the engine compartment near the driver's side door. A black vacuum hose runs from the module to the actuator, which is a round black plastic object which is connected with a cable to the throttle. Disconnect the vacuum hose from the actuator and inspect the end. If it is cracked, you may be able to cut 1/4" from the end of the hose and reconnect it.

DO NOT EVEN ATTEMPT TO REPAIR THIS. Take it to a professional, because it is an extremely complex repair; if you attempt this, you could end up without a car.

One of your vacuum lines has come loose or is broken. Check all the lines and repair the broken line or replace it back on the nipple that it came off of.

A malfunction with the emission control system has been detected , scan for trouble codes to diagnose and repair

According to my Haynes repair manual the Powertrain Control Module is behind the right front passenger kick panel in the footwell
