I have a 97 which was doing the same thing. They replaced the buttons, which are no longer made new, just refurbished. Fixed our problem.

Most if not all 1998 Pace Arrow are with the 460 are F53's and as Ford never made a 1998 F53 I will guess that yours is a 1997 F53.

That all said I would guess that you have dirty brushes. You need to pull the steering wheel off and clean and re lube the brushes.

By the way Ford calls it "Speed Control" and not "Cruise Control".

FWIW-- our 1998 Pace Arrow Vision was on a 1999 F53 ( v-10) chassis.

PanJH,
He said that he had a Ford 460 so it would not have been the 1999 F53 ( v-10) chassis.

Bill, my 97 Winnebago's speed control in intermittent as well. Servicing the brushes et al seems reasonable. My question; are there any special tools required to pull the steering wheel? IE Wheel puller or will brute strength get the job done? Is pulling it as simple as undoing the screws and tugging up on the wheel? I'm assuming a keyway for lining up the wheel to shaft is present so that the reinstall goes smoothly? Any advice, warnings or watch out for's you can offer would be appreciated.

On my 82 PA Chev 454 P30 (been told there was never a P30) it was a vacuum line @ the carburetor, hooked back up and its been working for over a year now.

Spritz,
The posters in the above post do not have vacuum going to the speed control, it is all electric.

Lt46 recommend you borrow a steering wheel puller, they will sometimes come off with force but as a teen with my first car I did take a steering wheel to the face when it finally let go

The book says to use:
OTC 211-014 Ford Steering Wheel Remover T67L-3600-A.

But sometimes you can put your legs under the wheel and pull up while taping on the shaft with the nut still on but loose. Do not tap on the shaft itself.
You would also have to mark a point between the shaft and the wheel to put it back on in the same place. Some have a punch mark or a alignment marks for this.
Sometimes the wheel will only go back on in one position.

Here is what the Ford shop manual says:

Steering Wheel Without Air Bag
Removal:

1. Center front wheels (1007) to the straight-ahead position.
2. Disconnect the battery ground cable (14301).
3. Unsnap the steering wheel pad horn switch (13A805) from the steering wheel (3600) by grasping the sides of the steering wheel pad horn switch and pulling toward yourself.
4. Disconnect the horn/speed control wire harness connector from the air bag sliding contact (14A664), and remove steering wheel pad horn switch from steering wheel.
5. Remove steering wheel retaining bolt.
6. Install Steering Wheel Puller T67L-3600-A, and remove steering wheel.

Installation:
1. Make sure front wheels are in the straight-ahead position.
2. Position steering wheel on steering shaft so the alignment marks are aligned.
3. Install new steering wheel retaining bolt and tighten to 31-45 N-m (23-33 lb-ft).
4. Connect steering wheel pad horn switch horn/speed control wire harness to air bag sliding contact connector.
5. Position steering wheel pad horn switch over steering wheel and snap into place.
6. Note: When the battery has been disconnected and reconnected, some abnormal drive symptoms may occur while the powertrain control module (PCM) (12A650) relearns its adaptive strategy. The vehicle may need to be driven 16 km (10 miles) or more for the powertrain control module to relearn the strategy.

Reconnect the battery ground cable.

The pad with the horn and speed control buttons:

Thanks Bill and Annierufus. Sure do not want a mouthful of steering wheel. Will consider every step of the removal/install procedure before I attempt this repair.

Keeping the nut on loosely solves that problem, wish I would have thought that far ahead when I was young. One other thing to consider with the yanking method is that it puts a lot of strain on the tilt pivot. Most auto parts stores have free tool rental.
