cruise control no longer works in my 2004 F150 FX4. I have read that it is

First check to see if it goes in cruise mode when u turn it on at the steering wheel. If it does then it's not the fuse. If in cruise mode, check cables going to ur throtle body. If all cables areok and connected, check brake peddal switch

As far as I know it has hasome been in for the recall. It was working off and on then it just stopped. I took the brake pedal switch off and opened it up and the inside has some discolotation like it got hot. I ordered a new one to see if this fixes it. Thanks for your input.

Good luck, hope it works

I checked with the dealer, and they said my truck (2004 f-150 4wd, new body style, 5.4 engine) was not included in the cruise control recall issue. There is no 2 amp in line fuse that I can find or any sort of switch on the brake reservoir, so perhaps this is different for the new body style?? Thanks,

Do you have a center console shifter? My cruise started acting funny then all of a sudden it would not shift out of park. Changed the safety switch on the shifter & now everything works fine. The safety switch wont let you put in gear without your foot on the brake & is tied to the cruise control.
