If youd like to see what the cruise control deactivation switch does

If Ford wont do it, disconnect the switch yourself.

Went to the dealer march 17 to have it disconnected. Me too had the
horn disabled after. Went back to have it checked and was told the
pad was defective; cost to replace 662$ because the air bag come with
it. Asked the dealer to leave it like that, I would think about other
options. Went on the internet last weekend and saw your post about
horn disabled. Did a rapid test: reconnected the plug and sure enough
the horn works.
Went back to the dealer to complaint and they found that the machanics
had removed the wrong plug under the hood. Instead of removing the
two wires plug on the switch, he had pulled the multi-wires plug on
the master cylinder.

My advice would be to go back to your dealer and have them check their
job. My dealer was all excuses with me after he found out his
mistake.

you know they made these trucks so complicated that the shade tree guy can't
work on them anymore, what a pity that the dealer can't either............
