Hello and welcome to Just Answer! I will do my best to help you fix your automotive problem today. The most common cause of the cruise to be out is the brake switch on the master cylinder. When the switch goes out it stops the cruise from working. The switch is on recall thru Ford. The fix for it has been to install a fuse the the switch. If the switch is leaking brake fluid they replaced it. The switch should have 12v on the two wires going to it for the cruise control to work.

Here is a youtube video that should help. The switch looks a little different but it's the same principle.

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.
