Clockspring tape broken.
Sorry I mean the speed limit button on the steering wheel that caps your speed at whatever you set it to. It's the same section of buttons on the steering wheel as the cruise control button.@FF Site Mods, please relocate this thread.
What does "speed limit" not working mean? Please provide additional description.
AMC's guess (clockspring) is a good guess. However, there are other failure points.
What is your Focus year and model and transmission type? ((some/all have micro-switches at brake pedal and at clutch pedal))
Wiring inside trunk or hatchback "umbilical wiring harness" might be damaged. Third (high-center) brake light bulbs and/or circuit might be f-ed-up = no cruise control.
Unfortunately this didn’t work for me, but I have heard it’s worked for others. Thanks for suggesting however.On my '13 Focus, I can work around this issue by un-clamping the steering wheel adjustment lever (under the steering column) and pulling the steering wheel in and out a few times. Then, re-clamp the lever. I know this is a hokey procedure, but it's worked on my car for the 7 years that I've owned it. Someday I'll look at the clockspring, but I don't use the cruise control often enough to worry about it.
I checked the tape. Ran an ohm meter between each of the 3 pins on the rotating end of the tape with its analogous pin on the fixed end.Clockspring tape broken.
