Cruise Control

Hey all figured I would try this part of the forum for more replies since I didn't get all that many in my other thread.

My cruise has not worked for awhile and I want to fix it now.

Lights work on the wheel, but when I press the buttons no light comes on the gauges and the cruise does not work of course.

So far some guys have offered that it may be the CPP switch or the clock spring.

My truck won't start without the clutch pushed in so would it be the CPP?

Would it be the clock spring? If so how will I know its bad?

Any other suggestions are welcome, and thanks for your time.

Just because the lights work on the switch doesn't mean the switches are good. Could be the on/off switch itself or the set/resume and cancel button. If your truck won't start without the clutch pushed in, then that means the clutch switch is good. As far as the clock spring, usually you will have other problems also, like an airbag light so I doubt the clock spring is bad. Hope that helps a little.

I figured that much I was just trying to be as detailed as I could, and thanks for the help!

And for checking the switches just take the wheel apart and check to see if they are getting juice through them?

I really don't know how you would test them. They have wires that come out of them with a plug on the end. They didn't use to be very expensive. You could probably hav a dealership test the cruise and monitor the switches but you might spend just as much diagnosing it as the switches cost.

Yeah they tried testing it when I did the cruise recall but I told them not too cause I figured I could test it myself instead of paying ford a lot of $$$$

Is the clutch position switch supposed to slide back and forth freely on the pushrod?

Nevermind got it fixed, it was the CPS, the springs were broke in it like someone thought. Thanks for the help!
