Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I try and set the set button, it just flashes each time I push it.  Spraying wd 40 worked before, but it doesn't now.

To set what?

Best Answer Mark helpful

Cruise button. Sorry

Instead of WD 40 try electronic contact cleaner, the WD 40 will work a few time, as you have discovered, but it contains petroleum oil as well as alcohol, and will eventually create an insulation, instead of a better contact, with that oil. The solvent in the contact cleaner will correct that. Hopefully.

Oh, and the rubber cover.. On a stalk or is it a push button? What year Explorer?

2003 push button

Can't find proper instructions to get cover off. I had radio controls up, not CC here we are

Douse it with contact cleaner. I don't think it will harm rubber/plastic
