I'm having search overload here.

On the 94 I just bought the cruise is inop.

PO said it quit around the time that the brake switch recall was done. I don't know about that. I bought a new switch and changed it out because the old recall work was the one with 2 fuses wired in. New one isn't like that.

I've only driven it a couple of times and today I noticed it's flashing the 3 2 code on the srs light. Maybe it's been flashing the whole time and I just didn't notice. So back to the searches and I'm thinking maybe clockspring?

But then I read another post and I think well maybe not clockspring.

The horn has always worked and the tilt is tight with no play in column.

The lock cylinder is showing some wear though. The key turns pretty loose and if you have the door open with the keys out you can wiggle the cylinder and the chime will go off.

So can someone point me in the right direction before I spend $120 for a clockspring that might not fix the cruise? Are the cruise relays under the hood or down by the fusebox?

Thanks

be gentle.... :doh0715:

The cruise control is a very simple system on these trucks.

Basically its completely self contained in the module on the fender. It should be a simple thing to just grab one from a junk yard vehicle and swap it in. That will be a whole lot cheaper than a clock spring. You could also find a junk yard clock spring if your really lucky. Either way you could confirm that you need a clock spring or not.

Have you got a picture of the module I need or where is it located so I'll know what to look for. Not a lot of 90's stuff in the junkyards around here. Is the f150 the same set-up?

Also forgot to mention that the hmsl isn't working. I figured it's maybe unplugged because PO has had the top off before.

That wouldn't stop the cruise would it?

Yo ParkerDog,

wire harness may be pinched/shorted on steering column support behind the dash where the 14401 wire assy may come in contact w/a sharp edge on dash panel wall, I had same short here too & caused E4OD's TCIL (OD switch-LED) to blink like a friggin pia;
wires pinched @ brake/tail lights, my 96's stop/turn/tail lights wires were almost cut in half on passenger side against 1/4 panel (inner);
wires pinched @ high mount brake light

The speed control system is designed to maintain vehicle speed automatically at any driver-selected speed above approximately 30 mph and below approximately 125 mph. The system is comprised of a speed control servo (9C735) which consists of a speed control actuator cable (9A825) with integrated electronics and other parts including horn relay, driver control switches, a stoplight switch (13480) and a deactivator switch. The speed signal is generated by the programmable speedometer/odometer module (PSOM) on all vehicles but motorhome. On motorhome, the speed signal is generated by the speed sensor located in the parking brake assembly. The speed control servo is mounted in the engine compartment and is connected to the throttle linkage with a speed control actuator cable.

So can someone point me in the right direction before I spend $120 for a clockspring
Whoa, what has happened to the price of clocksprings? I replaced mine a couple of years ago with a Dorman from O'Reilly for $49.99, and today they want $148.99 for the Dorman same part, or $975.99 for a "standard" one.

I was checking the usual fuses and looked under hood and thought might have found the problem but after more search I see that all my missing relays have to do with the trailer tow package.

Wonder what can of worms that will open replacing them.

Would the missing tow package relays stop the cruise? (don't have any laying around to check)

When I bought my '95 XLT a little over a year ago the only thing that didn't work on the vehicle was the CC. I started where you did and swapped out the brake switch on the MC. No joy. I checked all of the relevant fuses and they were all visually good. I disconnected the harness from the servo under the hood and verified that there was power up to the servo. Removed the top of the servo and confirmed that the cable and gears were free. I finally bought a used servo from a local salvage yard (they're all the same on F150s and Broncos of the same vintages) and, voila, the CC works. The guys at the Ford Truck Salvage Yard said that the servos are the usual reason why the CC stops working.

I just bought a fender from a guy who was scrapping a couple of 90's trucks and I thought I'd grab the steering wheel because mine is wore out leather and the clock spring.

He had a truck that he said was a 94 but the wheel was different, the cruise was on the turn signal stalk. Are trucks like that or was it a dealer add on item or something?

The servo on the fender looked different too. Round with a diaphragm.

Your description of the servo makes me think it is from an earlier model or a Ranger. IIRC, my '83 XLT had the CC on the steering wheel controlled by button on either end of the arch shaped center section. I've got no idea what the servo looked like, but that was a carbureted vehicle. Stalk controls would tend to make me believe it is some sort of aftermarket setup. Probably best to find a dedicated Ford Truck salvage operation. They tend to know which parts are correct for your truck and, in the case of the servo I bought, Rancho Ford Trucks in Rancho Cordova, CA actually gave me a 30 day warranty. I'd recommend contacting them on the internet. I'm sure they'd be willing to ship you the part and they have been trustworthy with the two transactions with me (a rebuildable driver's seat out of a '96 Eddie Bauer and the CC servo). Good luck with the CC troubleshooting.

Finally

YAYYYYY!!


It only took me a little over 4 months to get my cruise working! :doh0715:

I bought a module from a guy that was parting out a f-150 I found on craigslist.

$10 and a roll of the dice because he didn't know it it worked or not. This was a couple of months ago.... Forward to today and I finally got my lazy butt out there and swapped it out.

Works perfect.
