newbe with a question

First of all I didn't know there was a sight like this, man this is great. I have a little problem with my truck and I need some help. I have a 1995 Ford w/7.3 turbo and an automatic transmission 4X4. The cruise control will not work. The fuses are good that I can find. I had a buddy hook it up to a scanner today and there were no codes but when we took it down the road the speedometer in his scanner did not work. Any help will be great. Jeff

Yes my speedometer works. When I first started having problems the cruise would just quit going down the road, then it got to not working at all. Jeff

You may also have a bad brake pressure switch located on the master cylinder. I hope that is what mine is, I gotta try it. Good luck!

Where is the dss located on a 95. Also I think the pressure switch is bad also because it leaks a little fluid there. I unhooked the pressure switch and the cruise did not work, but that my not be the cure other than replacing it.
