Customer Question

speed control will not engage
Submitted: 3 years ago.
Category: Car
Expert:  Dale Stockstill replied 3 years ago.

Hello,

 

My name is Dale.

 

Did this happen all at once? And is the "Service Soon or Check Engine Light " on in the dash?

 

Sincerely,

Dale

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
happened all at once, engine light not on.
Expert:  Dale Stockstill replied 3 years ago.

Thanks for the response.

 

The very first thing to do is check all vacuum hoses associated with the cruise control, second check to make sure that the fuse for the cruise has not blown for some reason. Also make real sure that the electrical wires and/or vacuum hoses to the brake switch have not come off.

 

Sincerely,

Dale

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
done all of the above
Expert:  Dale Stockstill replied 3 years ago.

I would take it to a shop that has a (OBD II Scanner) and have it scanned. That is your best bet to isolate where the problem lies.

 

Sincerely,

Dale

http://static.rudefinder.com/profiles/sm/fillup.jpg obd 11 scanner or should I use obd 1 scanner.
Expert:  Dale Stockstill replied 3 years ago.

You will need to use a OBD 1 Scanner. I hear that Auto Zone will scan it for free. My scanner (Avery expensive unit) scans OBD 1 & OBD II so if you can find a person with that type of a scanner it will not matter.

 

Best of Luck with your Ford Dually Truck. My guess is the Cruise Control module has gone out but I am not for sure.

 

Sincerely,

Dale

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Is the cruise control module in the steering wheel compartment.
Expert:  Dale Stockstill replied 3 years ago.

No, I think it is attached to the unit under the hood that has the cable and bellows hooked to it.

Take you VIN number and go to dealer and they can look it up for you. No Charge
