MY first guess would b a ground problem-when U push the horn pad ,U are appling a ground-& there is a small ground clip on the steering coupler.IF te fuses are good. the air bag clock spring in the stearing coloum is open I had the same problem. check cruise control disconnect switch for power located on brake master cylinder. mine was burnt along with connecting wiring. new switch with wiring about $20. some model years have a recall currently. Most steering columns have a part known as a clock spring. This component has the electrical contacts which power the horn, cruise control and on some models... other electrical items. The part is generally between $50 and $100 from a dealer, but is difficult to replace due to the air bag and wheel having to be removed. I can't guarantee that's what is wrong, but it is the best guess... It seems the Windstar and Aerostars ar bad for this.
the cruise control is broken....
That depends what is wrong with it. The first thing to check would be the brake switch.
my control cable frayed....
A malfunction in the range sensor could cause the cruise to be inoperative.A malfunction in the range sensor could cause the cruise to be inoperative.
You may have a short in your cruise control switch.
a loose wire will cause that. also lots of other reasons but ford is known for cruise control failures in that year on all models
The clock spring allows you to turn the steering wheel without disconnecting the wiring to the cruise control buttons and horn in your steering wheel If your horn and cruise control don't work the clockspring is probably broken ( P.S. I'm not a mechanic / technician but my money would be on that guess )
Did you get the a RECALL notice ? Regarding the cruise control ... Ford put out a RECALL on the cruise control last year... I just had mines done on my 98 Ford Expedition XLT last week.
It is possible that both of the fuses are bad for the low beam headlights and the cruise control. A loose ground wire could cause the fuses to blow.
There is no isolated fuse for the cruise control. It all runs off the 20A gauges fuse. If you are having trouble with the cruise control I would check the Cruise Control Module or the Cruise control Servo. What symptom is occurring?
There are a few reasons why the cruise control does not work in a car. The fuse could be out, the wiring could need replacing or something as simple as the buttons not working.
Check 15 amp fuse "R" in the fuse box. It appears that the horn relay feeds part of the cruise control system.
Your Windstar is subject to a Ford recall for the cause of this problem.The cause is a leaking brake pressure sensor screwed into the bottom of the master cylinder.I would suggest contacting your Ford dealer confirm your van is covered (I believe every single Windstar is part of the recall), and arrange for the quick and easy repair.See "Related Questions" below for more
vacuum or electric what should i look for
Check the fuse first then the brake light switch
Most likely loss of refrigerant.
You could check the switch on the brake pedal, sometimes they need to be adjusted so the cruise will stay on.
Sounds like the brake light switch is broken or out of adjustment and yes it would cause the cruise control not to work.
Does the "cruise" light come on?
You would have to define what you consider "old". Cruise control has existed in some form since 1900, originally by using a centrifugal governor. "Modern" cruise control dates back to 1948.
Another thing to check is the actual cable from the cruise control module to the throttle body. It will be right next to the accelerator cable on the throttle body.
HOW WORK TO PROPORTIONAL valve
BROKEN CRUISE CONTROL CABLE (CHECK AT THROTTLEBODY AND FOLLOW TO TRANSMISSION)
There is no fuse for the cruise control on a 1994 Acura Integra. It is a relay switch under the hood near the battery. This would have nothing to do with the dashboard clock, if the cruise control is not working properly. If the cruise control is not coming on, check the relay, then check the carburetor or EFI (Electronic Fuel Injector). Also, the cruise control will not come on if the brake light switch or the clutch is not working properly.
my car cruise just cut off while I was driving can you tell me where the cruise control fuse is is located and what's slot it would be in on the fuse box
