Do you have a scan tool? Is the ABS light on? Does the park brake light work in the cluster when applied?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
No abs, brake light works. It’s a manual. It doesn’t stay on
Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 3 months ago

Here are some inputs the cruise needs to see to work.

Chart 10

  • Additional Driveability Concerns: Speed Control

SYSTEM/COMPONENTREFERENCE (Section 5 Pinpoint Test unless noted)

Check ABS LightREPAIR if necessary.

Check Brake Warning LightGO to Pinpoint Test FF if light is on.

Perform KOEO On-Demand Self Test and Retrieve/Clear Continuous DTCsGO to the appropriate pinpoint test.

Perform KOER Switch Self TestGO to the appropriate pinpoint test.

Road TestGO to Section 2 , Diagnostic Methods, Parameter Identification (PID), SELECT Parameter Identification (PID). SELECT PIDs: PBA, BPA, CPP, BOO, SCCS_M, VSS and VS SET. DRIVE vehicle and FUNCTION speed control system. COMPARE VSS to speedometer. If the WDS does not display the correct values for each PID selected, GO to the appropriate pinpoint test.

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
it does
Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 3 months ago

Take a look at the clutch switch, see if it is intact, I have seen a few fall apart.

Here is a wiring diagram, check these 3 fuses also.

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Where’s that located? Under dash or engine compartment
Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 3 months ago

The clutch switch is on the clutch rod under the dash.

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 3 months ago

The fuses are inside the vehicle.

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Found it. I assume that’s not suppose to slide back and forth on the rod
Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 3 months ago

Yes that is normal, it is spring loaded.

Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 3 months ago

O​k do you have a scan tool to look at pids for the cruise?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
No, not at the moment
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I’m wondering if it’s not the clutch switch. It’s loose and can spin around on the clutch rod. I didn’t think they were supposed to do that
Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 3 months ago

Ya they will, they are loose on the shaft. You can try this test, I am not sure if it will work on a diesel or not, this was from the gas engine section. Let me know if this works. Click here

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.
