85 LTD cruise control.

Postby washandy98664 » Sun Jul 20, 2014 8:13 pm



This cruise control will work sometimes .
Most times I go to engage it there is nothing. Other times it will work just fine.
Is there a relay or something that is hit or miss.
Amy help is appreciated.
Thanks Andy.

I am hoping this may be the reason the unit only works sometimes.

Check all the micro switches. You have both brake switches and the clutch switch . Check for the tabs being worn or stuck. I had to replace my clutch switch for that reason

I replaced the switch at the front brake.
Still have the same problem of working once in a while.
Looking for the ground for this circuit as well as for the high beams. That also works once in a while.

You still need to check clutch micro switch and foot brake switch .
