Just saw another post about this. Similar, but with more info on WHY the switch failed. Here it is:

The pressure switch circuit (when open) reports "pressure on", hence, the cruise control will not come on.



I fixed the harness and all's well since.

My 2010 started doing this yesterday. Had a code for "brake line B" Cleared the code and still no dice. I figured it should come on if that code was not reading.

I have a 2008 f-250 with 75000 miles and mine stopped working along with my horn and radio buttons. Turned out to be the clock spring witch is not realy a spring but a coil of wires that looked like a clock spring hints the name "clock spring". Once i replaiced my old one i took it apart and the wires bound up in there and broke apart. Just in case anyone runs into this problem. I know all yalls sounds like the brake pressure switch.

How do I go about replacing the clock spring; about how much did it cost?
