Same issue with 2012 Focus Cruise Control
Hi all, reopening an old thread. It looks like this is quite a common issue. I just called my local dealer as this has been an ongoing issue. It works intermittently, but lately it has been really bad. If I don't get it working after starting up, it won't work at all for the whole trip. I am scheduled to drive the car for a long trip in the middle of next month and I really need it working. Unfortunately the dealer wont take the car until 3 days before I go. I begged them to take it sooner to see what will inevitably need to be ordered, but they say they are booked solid. Rant over.
Questions: What is the likelihood of it being fixed on the first visit? Are there any bulletins that would improve their success? Should I try another dealer? Is this still covered under warranty? My car was purchased 4/2012 and is just over 27,000 miles.

I'm sure this is NOT something covered under the powertrain warranty. Usually just drive shaft, engine, and transmission.
The bumper to bumper warranty doesn't even cover fuses, which is ridiculous. My power outlet wasn't working so I replaced the fuse...but then it blew again. I hope I'm not having some sort of other electrical issue too...but then again, this was before my new wiring harness and clock spring. I haven't tried installing another fuse for my power outlets.

|pablo94sc||Well that's no a good sign if clock spring replacement didn't solve the issue. Maybe it's in your switch or the harness?|

Well I got the clockspring finally replaced about 2 months ago. It was working fine for a month and now is acting up again.
I am going to be setting up another appointment to have it fixed AGAIN!

Add me to the list. 58k miles and it works when it wants to. Sometimes a good bang to the side of the steering wheel corrects the issue - even turning it on for me without having to hit ON.
Anyone know if the clock spring/cruise control is covered under the 60k mile powertrain warranty? I have no issue with replacing this myself if I let the SRS (airbag) capacitors drain overnight, but I'd prefer to let the dealer do it.
