2006 F53 Cruise Control

2006 Ford F53 Coachman Aurora.
Cruise indicator doesn't appear on the dash nor does cruise engage. Replaced the in-line cruise cut-off switch, and checked all the fuses but it still doesn't work. Brakes light work.
Any thoughts? Could it be the brake light switch on the pedal arm?

If the " in line cruise cut off switch " is the one on or near the master cylinder, did you check for 2 amp fuses in that wiring harness ?

Your F53 may be to new, but you might want to take your VIN # to any Ford Dealer and have them see if the Cruise Control recall applies to you. It was a major recall for engine fires on almost all Fords between about 1994 and 2004.

Part of the recall fix was to add a small wire harness that had a couple in-line fuses. This harness plugged into the brake switch on the master cylinder.


1999 Fleetwood Southwind 35S (Ford F53 6.8L V10 275hp 4R100 4 spd trans) - Toad 2003 Saturn Vue.

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.

2006 or 2004 F53? Big difference in the cruise system. 2006 is drive by wire, really not anything to the cruise system except switches. Throttle is driven by the PCM, just like when you use the pedal.

2002 was the last year for the recall, you should be past that, even if you are on a 2004 chassis.
