I assume you mean the aircraft and the automatic control device in your parameters.

There might be something akin to power-shift or automatic transmission, but that is different.

Where is the Cruise control fuse on a 2002 Ford Escape?

the abs/asc (automatic speed control) fuse in the driver kick is 5 amp fuse third one down from abs & speed control (cruise).this is my guess but not totally sure. I checked all the fuses on mine; all were good. I removed 3 - 5/16" nuts & removed engine cover (top). Found the end of the cruise control cable connector (cheap plastic) had worn through, letting it separate from the throttle stub it connects to. (No cable hooked up?, cruise won't work) I put the connector back on the throttle knob, drilled a small hole in the end of the plastic connector & dropped in a small clip pin (a small cotter pin will work too) in to lock the plastic piece & prevent it from sliding off during acceleration. This in no way affected linkage, etc. & holds the cruise cable connector to the throttle where it belongs. Check this, it's easy to find, & might save you the $40 for a new cruise cable. I have pictures if you need the fix. Good Luck

If the 94 Camry is anything like the 92 Camry check the fuses under the hood on the left hand side and check the fuses there that's what i would guess.AnswerThese problems may be unrelated. The cruise control is often deactivated unintentionally by someone forgetting to connect the cruise control actuator connection. Make sure the connection is tight. It is under the front of the actuator by the radiator, on the inboard side of the battery.
