The cruise control on my 2002 Ford Escape worked fine prior

Customer Question

The cruise control on my 2002 Ford Escape worked fine prior to going about 1 yr. without using the vehicle due to the need to replace an ignition coil. The ignition coils have all been replaced and I purchased a new battery. The cruise control light comes on but the system does not engage when I a press "set". Am I missing something??
JA: While using the cruise control can you accelerate or decelerate? Have you checked the fuses?
Customer: Thanks. I forgot to check the fuse. Are there more than one fuse? Without being engaged I don't know if I can accelerate or decelerate.
JA: Are you fixing your Escape yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes I am fixing the Escape myself unless someone tells me that I need to use some gizmo that Ford has proprietary rights over and they are the only ones who can do a particular repair. I have not tried anything so far but I'm going to check the fuses now - Can I contact you later??
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I don't think so. Oh yeah, I am complete on factory recalls to date.

Hi Im David. if the vehicle has been sitting for that long, have you checked the wiring to the servo for mouse chewings/damage?
