I know that the cruise control going out or working intermittently on these trucks is huge wide spread problem. A quick google search on the subject will bring up a lot of reading.

Has anyone filed a lawsuit for this issue though. If there is one I would be interested in contacting them. I jst went through this whole fiasco on my truck and and talking to so many other people that it has happened to I feel that it should be a recall by Ford.

Any interest?

^ what he said.. I heard it is a common problem, i bought the $30 switch took about 5-10 minutes to switch out. Now it works perfectly.

I thought it was due to tuning. When I tune my truck, cruise doesn't for for a few hundred miles then works fine

Mine cruise did not work when I received the truck, I just cleaned the connector's switch and since work perfectly.

I had to change out the switch also.
Does work now but for how long?
Got a spare in the glove box .
Definitely a problem with that switch. May be an easy fix but should be something done about the problem of this switch failing. Not wearing out as my dealer says.... But failing.
I have changed it on my::
2008 F250
2002 F250
2000 F350
That every Ford truck I have owned.

I don't think a lawsuit is in order...
But perhaps for Ford to use/try a different switch because the one they are using now has a reputation for failure.

A lawsuit for an intermittent issue? Not my style.

Sure, I could see it being a safety hazard if it got stuck and wouldn't turn off, but c'mon, for it not maintaining speed properly? Are there any cases of it not turning off and not being defeatable? That would be reason for a lawsuit.

Also, mine works perfectly fine on my stock truck.

went to the dealer today to get mu truck checked out and spoke with my service writer and the service manager. They said they have not seen many of them come in for that. So it may not be all that common. But my truck as well as my uncles truck had the problem both of which were fixed by replacing the switch.

If there should be a lawsuit over anything it should be the stupid radiators...
