What should I try next?

Same thing happened to me, lights flashed one each time i pushed the buttons, after the last button, I hear a wind up noise, then a thud, and nothing after that.

sailor Open the hood.

Once you locate the throttle body, you can see the two throttle cables.

One goes back to the pedal, the other goes straight to the cruise module in the engine compartment.

CC Light but no CC

I read through these before but don't know what would cause my issue. The CC light turns on on the dashboard but does nothing, so it doessn't seem to fit with other issues that have been brought up here. I know that it is no longer vacuum, where is the actuator located that controls the throttle?

KDogg319 Thank you for this post. My cruise control quit working on my way home from work this evening. Quick Googling and found this information. Had my wife watch the brake lights this evening and they did not come on. Found the brake light fuse and it was blown. Replaced the fuse and brake lights and cruise now works. Kudos to you!

Does diagnostic test work on stalk mounted controls or just wheel buttons?

I can't get the results with my stalk mounted CC.

Focus?NoFocus Thanks for this write up. Found my brake cancel switch to be bad. I think it was 20 bucks for a new one from ford.

This would be the 1st thing I would check before anything else.
That was my issue as well...

About 5 months ago my rear wiper stopped working...then last month my cruise ctrl stopped working and I couldnt find anything wrong.
then my break lights stopped working so after replacing bulbs, i checked the wires...




there were a bunch of cracked/broken wires in the pigtail running through the hatch on my wagon...old wires will do that.
...match up the colors and splice.

Fixed everything!!
