Cruise Control Issue

Motorhome is on a 2007 Ford F53 10cyl 6.8L stripped chassis. The Motorhome is a 2009 34' Tiffin Allegro Open Road.

Cruise Control quit working. I have replaced the Cruise Control Cutout Switch near the master cylinder, the cruise control switches on the steering wheel, and the Clock Spring behind the steering wheel.

Any advice, guidance or expertise would be appreciated for my next move. I have gone as far as can. Thanks in advance....James

I think there was a recall on these. Mine doesn't work either, I just have not bothered to address it. I think you can check through a ford dealer.

When you changed the switch, out on the master cylinder, did you investigate the 2, 2 amp fuses in the harness to it ?

Instead of throwing parts at it, check the system.
Here's the schematic for the cruise on 2006 F53, yours should be similar.

I do not find any Ford F53 CC recalls. The most accurate website is recalls.org which requires your VIN for a search.

Replace the brake light switch. On the brake pedal.

He didn't say his brake lights were out, that's what that switch controls.

The cruse control does monitor the stop lights and when it see a + voltage it turn off the cruse. So yes the stop light switch does come into play.

Yes, but the OP didn't say the stop lights weren't working. Ford uses a simple, single pole, normal open, switch for brake lights.

If stuck closed, the brake lights would be on all of the time, or if not making contact, it wouldn't prevent the cruise control from engaging.

Actually, no. Ford, at least on the 2006, uses 2 separate voltage inputs, and 2 separate outputs, one to the cruise, and one to the brake system.

On my Bounder, the brake lights worked as advertised. Cruise control would cancel if we went over a bump in the road. I replaced the Brake Light Switch and that issue has yet to occur.


Replace the Brake Light Switch.

Since the original post I changed the Brake Light Switch.

Had an RV/Truck service company troubleshoot the system and thinks it is the PCM/ECM. They say that I do not have any voltage going to the cruise Control from it.

Finally had one Ford dealer in this state that would even look at my system. Their computer and the technician stated that I have a brake signal going to the cruise which in turn has it shut down and will not allow it to operate or send the 12V from the PCM.

So after about $2000 and back where I started, I'm burnt !!!!

Longshot...have you checked all your brake light bulbs?
This was a common issue on some makes, Toyota that I know of specifically.
One burnt out bulb and the cruise control would not function.
(BCM needed to see X resistance in the brake light circuit)
Sometimes when you're at your wits end it's easy to overlook the basics.
Worth a look see....
