cruise control on 2006...

cruise control on 2006 ford escape has never worked (as far as we know). The owner never tried it until after owning it for a year and it didn't work then (she bought it new)

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuse? What size is your engine?

I need to check (lol)

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Escape yourself? What have you tried so far?

3.0l v6

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I did check fuses at one time and they were fine

I apologize for the delayed response but I ran out of time. The document you sent looked good but the text was too small for me to read well so I'm pasting into a doc so I can enlarge and print. I'm out of town until tomorrow evening so I'll try to check further then. Thanks!
Very good. Just remember to rate the question when finished or let me know if you need more help

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
