Just for starters...did it once work and then quite working or has it never worked (at least during your ownership)?

Also, do you have a wiring diagram?

Let me ask you this, did you already take it in to a Ford dealership for the recall? If you did, they might not have completed it, as most ran out of the parts long ago. They will just disconnect the brake shut off switch at the master cylinder. I would look there.

Another possibility is the switch itself (at the master cylinder) is leaking, causing a short. I would look there first.

Ok i think it is a re-call issue. I had to import this vehicle from the u.s. to canada when i went to get the re-call letter they stated there was a recall on the cruise but they cant pull up any info on it so they figured its completed. The guy i bought it from said exactly that it had a re-call and the dealerships there dident have the parts. They must have dis-connected it then. The ford dealership where i am said there not sure on a motorhome where they would have dis-connected it. Being a class c i imagine it would be the same as any truck. I'll look at the master cylynder as soon as it warms up here were in -30 wheather right now. It seems frod does not have a real clear record of re-calls history like g.m. does. They said they cant get any info on the re-call because its from the u.s.?

O.K. the recall is still open on it.

On the master cylinder, usually (motorhomes are exception at times) there is a round (about 1" across) switch that comes out of the top, front or passenger side low (depending on model). It will have a rectangular connector plugged into it. When they disconnect it, they just usually leave it off to the side hanging. The switch will always remain in the master cylinder. I have seen some of the motorhomes difficult to find. Keep looking it will be there.

Just googled tha re-call # it does come up as a cruise control re-call and by the looks of what it says there they were out of stock on the parts. I guess i'll keep searching for the place they dis-connected it.

Yes, it "could" be disconnected. I am just saying that would be the first thing I would look at. As far as the exact location, it varies with the motorhomes. We have seen them all done differently, sometimes the M/C is changed, but still has the original set up for the disconnect switch. You may have to search around the M/C area to locate it, due to sometimes a mess of wires and other components they install there.

well i searched pretty good today to see if i could find anything dis-connected but i really cant find anything. The cruise does not seem to do anything when i hit the switch where would i start now? Is it hard to get to the switch its on the steering wheel i have never done one of these fords. I guess if i get to the switch i could check to see if power is getting there? In a seperate matter i need to install daytime running lights in this motorhome also since i'm in canada and its from the states i'm required to put them in. I can get the module from a parts store here for about 25 bucks. I noticed there is a fuse that has daytime running lights listed on it and also theres another place where there is a module for daytime running lights according to the owners manual i believe somewhere under the hood. Is it possible i may just be able to plug the module in? Or am i just dreaming it would be that easy? thanks sorry for the long post got a little carried away.
