95 Cruise Control Stopped Working

Well wife's cruise control went out. I ran the Ford Bronco Pin Point test and came up with control switch (s) is sticking. I have never pulled a steering wheel cover and not sure if the air bag might go off. Is there any special procedure to get to the switches so I can replace what is defective. It appeared that the clock spring was not the problem per the test but not sure.. Thanks

The air bag stays "armed" for a minute or so after the battery is disconnected. Pull off a battery cable and by time you get the steering wheel tore apart, the Air Bag circuitry will have discharged.

Yo widetrackman,
As Mike advised. Hopefully you do not have a 12 vdc auxiliary battery hooked up for aftermarket components.
Did you have the cruise control recall work performed?

See my partially recovered Bronco web site ...Will need to clean up dead links & add many more new links some day. Thanks to Mr. Schwim!

I have a couple of questions: Can I remove the 4 bolts holding the steering wheel pad to the wheel and replace defective cruise control switches, if no how is it done. Also what is the procedure to test the switches? Finally, I can not find replacement switches. The Pin Point test showed "stuck switches". I would like to eliminate the switches before diving into clock spring.

Here's the schematic, I've never had the steering wheel apart, so I can't help on access to the switch test points.

I also don't know were the test points are. I do not understand the schematic enough to test the switches.

Yo,
I
To avoid electrical troubleshooting (UPPER CASE is by Ford) Speed Control Inoperative possible suspects:
Blown fuse. Check fuse #13 in cab fuse panel; see panel diagram in attached diagram; and Maxi-fuse E in Power Distribution Box located under the hood on the drivers side fenderwell, on driver's side of the air cleaner housing. Diagram in a 95 by Seabronc (Rosie, Fred W)

Fuse "E" Inoperative in TSB 95-5-21 for 92-95 Bronco & F Series; On some vehicles the HO2S wires in the 12A690 (subassembly of the 14B060 battery cable) harness may become chafed READ MORE

SERVICE PROCEDURE:
1. Disconnect negative battery cable.
2. Disconnect the solenoid terminal and positive battery cable from the starter.
See attached location image
3. Pull the cable downward to inspect the 12A690 harness for chafing, pinholes, etc. If necessary, remove the convolute and tape from the 12A690 harness located next to the lower RH side engine mount.
4. If the 12A690 harness is damaged, replace the 14B060 assembly (F5TZ-14300-EA) and the HO2S sensor (F4UZ-9F472-A).
5. Inspect Fuse "E" and replace if necessary (D9ZZ-14526-D).

Stoplight switch/bulbs. CHECK FOR STUCK STOPLIGHT SWITCH, burnt out/ loose bulbs or corroded sockets.

Deactivator switch. This was in the recall.

Speed control servo. CHECK FOR BROKEN OR BOUND ACTUATOR CABLE; Remove speed control actuator cable from speed control servo. Check for broken speed control actuator by pulling on speed control actuator and noting throttle movement.

Fuses, brake sw ok, horn works . The Ford Pin point test procedure listed by DieselDave was performed and stated the control switches were sticking. Can you get to them by removing the steering wheel center cover, if you can how do you check them with a DVM. Thanks

"Three screws attach speed control actuator switches (9C888) to the steering wheel." From 1996 Bronco, F-150, F-250, F-350, F-Super Duty Workshop Manual (partial) @
1996 Bronco/F-Series
This is for horn switch removal, but look at it all to see if the cc switch can be removed same way,

Will try to find the strg wheel switch test.

WARNING: THE ELECTRICAL CIRCUIT NECESSARY FOR SYSTEM DEPLOYMENT IS POWERED DIRECTLY FROM THE BATTERY AND BACKUP POWER SUPPLY. TO AVOID ACCIDENTAL DEPLOYMENT AND POSSIBLE PERSONAL INJURY, THE POSITIVE BATTERY CABLE MUST BE DISCONNECTED FOR ONE MINUTE PRIOR TO SERVICING OR REPLACING ANY SYSTEM COMPONENTS.
I have found a few vehicles that had an aftermarket component in it that had a 12v DC or higher re-chargeable battery; so take time to look for such.


Steering Wheel Replacement in a 95; MIESK5 Note, check DISABLE PROCEDURE AND TIME (Always Check the Service Manual) Disconnect and isolate battery ground cable. Wait at least 1 minute. & to pull the steering wheel in the late models, a 2-jaw puller is needed. There are no holes to thread in the usual bolts for a steering wheel puller, thnx to Dustball!
