CarGuyNeil I ordered from Amazon Prime to save on shipping and because they claimed to have it in stock. That was December 28th...still hasn't shipped. A little frustrating to say the least. Usually Amazon gives better service. Granted this isn't keeping me from driving the car, just disappointed with the time frame involved, plus I want to see if this fixes it.

CarGuyNeil I got the test to work and got 3 flashes for brake deactivation switch. Does anyone know if Motorcraft SW-5576 is correct for an 04 SVTF?

erbonetti Well I didn't realize the upper center brake light wasn't lighting, so I'm guessing that's my issue, becuase I pulled on the cable, and it appears to be connected just fine. I just bought new bulbs for the brake light, but its still not lighting. the wiring to it appears to be fine, but I'm no electrician. Should I replace the wiring harness? I really don't know what im doing with electrical work ugh.

Anyone have another possible answer?
Check the cruise cable at the throttle body. Mine is broken there, as I've just found out. Time to stop at the dealer Monday and order a new one. I need a throttle cable too. It's catching internally. Found mine while installing a cold air intake today.

Look upwards on the Brake Pedal, it is the upper Green Plunger Switch, You should remove the lower dash panel below the steering wheel first, 4x8mm Machine Screws and Left side clip. Once lowered, you can access the switch which rotates to the left about 45degrees to remove. Carefully pop the clip off the switch to slide off the wiring harness. Reverse the steps to install. You may want to disconnect the negative battery post before starting this work. This switch is normally closed or has 12VDC all the time. Check Fuse #53 (Cruise Control) Hope this info will help.

sailor Did you pull on the cable to ensure it's still connected inside?

Good to know. Thanks for sharing. I couldn't get the test to work the other recommended way. I will try this.

sleazy rider 2006 ZX4 here. Figured out that by holding the cruise off button and turning the key to on (dash lights illuminated) once, the test will then work. It ran thru all the tests with good results, but the cruise doesn't function. Time for more rooting around and lubing all the cables to the throttle body.
