Haven't quite found my exact symptoms on here yet, could use some help...
had a bad clockspring for a long time (years) that made my airbag light always lit (and likely inoperational) and cruise control didn't work. finally when I noticed the horn stopped working, I replaced the clockspring and all was well (fixed airbags, cruise, and horn).
Not too long after that got replaced, the cruise started only working intermittently (horn and airbag seems to still work so I'm guessing the replacement clockspring is still good).
Most times I try to engage CC it doesn't work, but sometimes it does. I have replaced the high center brake light with LEDs (regular tail lights are regular bulbs). Had the intermittent CC both before and after the LED change. Seems if it were caused by the LED change then it should never be working.
Tried the diagnostic and I got a light after each button press (including Set), but then no flashes. so does that count as 1 flash (for the one after Set) or no flashes? Also, I did hear the stepper/servo noise followed by thud, as described by some others.
So my initial thought is that it's my steering wheel switches. When I was investigating my previous clockspring replacement, I seem to recall that each switch set (left on/off and right resume/set/cruise) only used 2 or 3 wires and the resistance between them changed depending on the button pressed... Like total of 4 or 5 wires being used instead of 1 common and then 1 signal wire for each switch (5 switch signal wires + 1 common = 6 wires). Does this sound right? If so, can someone tell me what the correct resistances (and between which wires) I should be reading from each button press?
Could one of the brake switches be sticky or would that show up in the diagnostic as a different flash sequence?

|sparky34kv||Is there a clip or something to keep the plastic at the end of the cable on the attachment point on the throttle? I fixed mine a couple of weeks ago when I found it had just come off. It worked great, kept the speed exactly where it was set. The next time I went to use it it was a no go.|

|VapeGamer||Tried procedure, got 0 flashes after (successful test). I've seen quite a few people mention brake light issues causing CC to not function. Anyone have a knowledge of the operating parameters to tell me whether LEDs would cause the same effect? Full LED conversion in the rear end on mine, bulbs only. In addition, my valve cover gasket has been a gremlin for the past couple months (I've had it off several times), and only noticed CC not working after this. I'd be more knowledgeable about the CC system, but I'm an Acura tech, haven't seen a cable CC to diag in a long time.|

|ohlingerrh||I'm in the same boat with an electrical problem in the cruise control operation. The quick fix is no help because I have no response at all. I have checked with Ford dealers and all they would say there is a problem in the drivers wheel well. No guesstimate about the cost to repair. ray|

Switched the Switch--No dice
This post is really helpful--thanks! After running the diagnostic I figured it was the brake deactivation switch (which is green btw). But it's still showing three flashes when I run the test, and of course no cc. Frustrating. I wonder if I'm a.) misreading 2 as 3 flashes (the flashes start up pretty soon after hitting set but I may be misinterpreting). Or, if the circuits are messed up. Has anyone figured out how to fix/replace damaged circuits?

|Codyfox||Thank You 6SPD_Soul for the diagnostic test. I had a bad brake cutoff switch. I was able to buy the part from the Ford dealer for $26 and replace it myself.|

I've read of cases when it didn't work with third brake light bulbs out, did you fix that yet?
VSS code might be lack of signal to the cruise unit, check/clean connector for luck first.

2000 SE wagon automatic CC still not working
Have read all the posts and still not found the problem, have done the following:
1. Check lite flash during test - had 4 flashes which states VSS signal problem. (never heard or felt any motors or noises during test. Speedo, horn & turns work, lite comes on when set pushed(so switches appear to work).
2. 3rd brake lite had 3 of 5 bulbs burnt out, all brake lites work and does not stay on when pedal up (dont think switch is the problem).
3. Performed cable check and is not broken only moves about 1/8 inch
With speedo working dont think VSS is the problem!
Does anyone have the flow chart for further diag?
Anyone have the wiring diagram for the CC?
Can the actuator/module be checked with a DVOM or just pull it apart to check for gear or motor problem?
But if actuator the problem why 4 flashes?
This is all electronic so no use of vacuum!
Any help would be appreciated!
