Customer Question
Hello, Cruise control is...

Hello, Cruise control is not working

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

No I did not, it is Eddie Bower 2002, 6 Cylinder. I think it is 4.0 liters

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '02 Ford?

Explorer

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

I did not do any thing yet to the cruise control, also the main light switch is working but no light on my dash, unless I switch the light switch to the manual, the light works.

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

No thanks, ***** ***** else is working fine.

Does your horn blow and do the brake light work when the brakes are applied?

Ford Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

Okay, there are two common causes for the cruise to fail, one is the brake pressure switch located on the master cylinder and the other is a bad servo providing all fuse check okay. Are you able to do some testing?

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
