Cruise control not working

My 96 7.3L Turbo's cruise control stopped working. It would work every once in a while but now doesn't work at all. My ABS light also comes on after a driving for a few minutes. The fuses are fine. Can someone help me out. Thanks

I had the same problem. On the front of the master cylinder there is a sensor that the seal will leak. Once the brake fluid gets in it its junk. Its a cheap easy fix from ford around 30 dollars and about 5 min to change. To test it disconnect the sensor take a small piece of wire and jump the left side to the right side of the pig tail end. Take it for a test ride if the cruise works thats your problem. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply. It turns out that my brake lights were burned out and this in turn caused the cruise not to work and the ABS light to come on. Easy fix now I just hope they don't burn out again as that will be another task to get to the bottom of.
