Dan,

Do you have brake light and does the horn work?

Are you able to do some testing?

horn doesn't work
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
no just tell me what to test
Ford Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 months ago

The horn not working can also keep the cruise control from working, the horn gets its power from the fuse 14 in the under hood fuse panel, do you have power in and out of the fuse?

have power
Ford Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 months ago

Okay one other fuse to check is the fuse #12 located in the interior fuse panel. We need to get the horn to work in order for the cruise to work. Let me know if you have power in and out of it.

What Customers are Saying:

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
