Question Ford Courier 2002 Cruise Control

Hi,
Can anyone HELP me, My cruise control drops out when going up hill,
It is not a ford fitted control,but was professionally fitted. They say it
is to do with the amount of vacuum to the control switch. It is attached
to the brake vacuum system via a 'T' piece. Can anyone tell me if this
is correct or is there any other connection it can go to. This is very
inportant as to suddenly drop off speed while going up hill with cars up
your rear end (which may delight some males) is very embarrassing and
unsafe. Please help if possible

Try to fit a vacuum tank to the system & soucre the vacuum directly from the inlet manifold.

Re: Ford Courier 2002 Cruise Control

I presume the courier is a manual?

If you were driving up the same hill without cruise control on, would you normally change down a gear or two?

Re: Ford Courier 2002 Cruise Control

I'd take it back to the people that installed it. I've got aftermarket cruise control on my EB, and the car will happily change gears to suit the road.

Cruise can be installed on a manual car, difference is when you depress the clutch pedal, it deactivates.

What brand of cruise control is it?
