Exclamation Lost Cruise control on steering wheel....need help?

So I lost control of my cruise control on my steering my
Wheel. Could this be as simple as a fuse or is it worse then I'm hoping
? Anyone else ever have this problem?

There is no separate fuse or control system for cruise on a 6.4L Powerstroke. Cruise control is a function of the ECM and is highly sensitive to all ECM diagnostic problems. Any fueling related issue, will cause cruise to shut down. There are also hundreds of other combinations of problems that will kill cruise for the safety of the driver or truck.

If you lose cruise control, and the check engine light or other lights did not come on, cycle the key. You cruise should come back on your next key cycle. If the check engine light or other comes on, take it to a shop to have it checked for codes and that will lead you to a solution.

I had this happen to me too. I've heard this is a common problem with 6.4L's and that it is due to a pressure switch on the brake. One day the rubber pad on the brake peddle came off, and I haven't as many problems since the pad came off.

Makes sense. I guess what ever caused mine to not work kept happening even after a few key cycles because mine was inactive for a day or 2 with several key cycles

Same thing happened to mine at 48k. There a sensor/switch near the master cylinder. Cheap part, easy to replace. When this switch goes bad it will not let the cruise engage because it thinks the brake is being applied.
