Signal cams & cruise Control

Post by GreenMeanie » Fri 24 Jul , 2009 3:37 am

My cruise control cuts out or doesnt work and both my left & right signal cams are broken. Can these be replaced? Ive been told that this is a Ford Focus column in my 97 and i have to replace it. Is this true? or just dealer talk. Thanx.

I believe it is the same column that was used in all years of the Ford EXP. You should be able to get those parts at a local parts place. Keep us updated. I've wanted to look into it more but have not had the time.

Our steering columns are Ford Escort modified for our trucks so look for them parts.The cruise control might not be working or cutting out because the shift button is not popping up all the way when you shift gears try that for your cruise and let us know. Dan

Have you done any LED upgrades to your tail lights? That would/could also cause a cruise control problem. A relay is added to restore operation. But if you didn't do any upgrades, disregard. :)

In fact my shift button does not pop up at all. Could this also cause my no overdrive condition? Is there a fix for this button?

Don't know about overdrive. You can take shifter apart and fix spring I think there is something in tech pages about it? Dan

one of my friends installed LED lights. The cruise stopped working. You have to install a 215 ohm resistor on the brake switch.
I emailed him for exact instructions.

A resistor on the shift lock solenoid will also fix it.

I went through my notes and emails and put this together and added it to the led and electrical problem pages.

If you are using LED turn signal and brake lights on your truck you need to install a load resistor under the dash and connect the brake lights to ground or your cruise control and/or high idle switch won't work. There are 2 switches on the brake pedal. One switch is used to remove power to the cruise control (2 wires). The other two wires control the brake lights. One wire on the brake switch goes to power (orange). The other wire goes to the brake lights (red). You attach the wire that goes to the red wire on the brake lights to a 215 ohm resistor to ground. There is an actual AMG 'kit' that comes with a ring lug that is suppose to go under one of the ground lugs on the body pillar. Without the resistor the computer thinks the brakes are on and the cruise or high idle switches will not work.

Hey Chuck. Just wondering for clarification, I thought the brake switch had 3 curcuits. Brake lights, cruise switch and converter lockup. You mention only 2 curcuits.

You're right. I was just concentrating on the one problem. I looked at the schematic and there are 6 wires.

Is there any chance that it might be a dirty Vehicle Speed Sensor on the Tcase? Or that the VSS might need a shim? Throwing it out there.I thought that problem happens occasionally.

My turn signal/cruise control lever broke:

-the gobs of epoxy and silver screw are evidence the previous owner took the matter into his own hand. Will this different part be compatible with my 2000 year model?

It looks like the turn signal switch is the same over many different years http://www.hummerpartsguy.com/SWITCH-TU ... 22272.html.

However when I look at the turn signal lever itself it looks like the connections are different depending on the years. If you want an oem replacement their is this http://www.hummerpartsguy.com/LEVER-TUR ... _5792.html

I am not sure if it would be a plug and play replacement if you were to go with an earlier model version like the one you suggested.

All-right thanks again for those links Matthew, I will check into it further.
