confused 2001 Excursion V10, cruise control stopped working

My cruise control went out on my Ford 2001 Excursion Limited V10 model, I understand this is an ongoing problem with most Ford trucks. I just had the recall 05S28 for the cruise control sensor installed but this did not fix the problem. Any trouble shooting ideas? Has anyone repaired this, or am I stuck with the dealer price for repair?

Thanks,
Jody

Re: 2001 Excursion V10, cruise control stopped working

Enter the Self-Test Diagnostics by depressing the speed control OFF switch while turning the ignition key ON, making sure the engine does not start and is not running. The speed control indicator on the instrument panel will flash once to indicate that speed control module entered the diagnostic mode. FIVE ADDITIONAL FLASHES AT THIS POINT INDICATE A DEFECTIVE SPEED CONTROL SERVO. Release the OFF switch.
Press the remaining switches in this sequence: ON, RESUME, COAST and SET/ACCEL.
If the "ON" switch is not depressed within five seconds after entering the diagnostic mode, the module times out and the procedure must be started over.
The speed control indicator lamp will flash as each switch is depressed. Press each switch in the sequence immediately after the indicator light goes out for the previous switch.
NOTE: There will be a slight delay when the last button is pressed and the lamp flashes.

A lamp flash with the last button (SET/ACCEL) indicates that the STATIC test passed. If the lamp does not flash with the last button and there are no additional flashes of the lamp, the switch is defective.
If the lamp does not flash with the last button, and additional flashes occur, follow the chart below for trouble codes:


Flashes Source
2 Flashes BPP defective, circuit is defective, brake applied, CPP switch or jumper (if equipped) is defective
3 Flashes Deactivator switch is open or circuit defective
4 Flashes Vehicle speed signal is out of range or circuit is defective



How's that?

Re: 2001 Excursion V10, cruise control stopped working

I entered the self test diagnostics as you suggested. While I held down the "Off" switch the "cruise" light continued to flash every second, I counted up to nine times then stopped, I thought I messed up tried again and it flashed 10 times. I tried the om, resume, coast, and set/accel and nothing happened, no "cruise" blinking.

Does this mean my speed control servo is out? If so where is this located? Is this a doit-yourself type of job?

Thanks,
Jody

The switches in the steering wheel may be the culprit.

If you take it to a Ford Dealer, they can hook up the computer and monitor the data from the buttons letting the tech know if a button is not working. This will cost you a diagnostic fee plus the repair if you agree to let them do it.

I hate going to the dealer but it looks like I have no other choice.

Thanks
