94 Ranger 4.0 cruise control broke
Anybody got any idea what to try next to fix the cruise on my 94 Ford Ranger?
She is a 4.0L 5 speed and I have had her for around 14 years. A few years ago the cruise started acting up, after about 10 minutes or so it would shut off and not work again to the next day. Then later on it became more intermittent, would work some days and some days not. Then it got to where it wouldn’t work for months then work one day then not again for months. Now it never works.
I have tried to fix it over the years, I changed the sensor where it plugs into the tranny by the speedometer cable. I checked for codes in the computer, I used a meter to test the steering wheel switches like the book said. According to my manual the next thing to try is there is supposed to be a brain box behind the glove box and the manual says swap it with a known good one. Only problem is this is an expensive part to throw at it.
Anybody got any advice for me?
Darn truck has performed well with very few problems for over 200,000 hard miles but it drives me crazy not having cruise.
