ohlingerrh I tried it several times. I do not get any flashing. Is there a fuse or something controlling power?

sailor No picture handy, check this thread for a pic of your engine compartment:http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/g...ocus-have.html

In that one you can see the two throttle cables draping across the engine to the throttle body at the back (air intake) right at the center.

The small one on the right leads to the cruise module, the larger on the left is for your foot pedal.

Cable operated throttle, either by your foot or the cruise module until '08 on these cars. In '08 the "drive by wire" electronic throttle was introduced & everything changed.

Check the cable?

PapaLee Just tried the self diagnostic test,cc light blinked once after I hit the set button so cc should work now? Went for a test drive, when I hit the on button cc light didn't come on but when I hit the set/accl button the cc light came on. I hit set button at 50 mph but it did not hold that speed, tried the set/accl to see if it would accelerate but nothing hit res button and coast button but no response from either one. Don't know if I did anything wrong butthis is the first time the cc light came on at all

Super_Dave_344 yeah if you rest your foot on the gas pedel youll feel it go down then back up meaning your motor & cable are working.

I did the dash light check....the cc light came on to start the test...flashed each time the buttons were pressed....cc motor came on & gas pedal went down & back up fine but no other lights came on.

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.

Super_Dave_344 I still cant get mine to work :(

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.
