1999 ford econoline van cruise control

the cruise control on the van doesnt work, i checked out all the fuses in the box and all seems well, someone said maybe the cruise control sensor? can you tell me where this is located or any help will do....the light in the dash should light up when up push the on button for the cruise control, right. because nothing lights up or anything when i push it, thats way i think it may be a fuse???

It could be numerous things.

Bad vehicle speed sensor

Brake switch/deactivation switch

Vacuum hose

Possible Cruise control fix

Cruise control was out on my Cougar after brake light switch failed. Ford uses device called Powertrain Control Module. Controls a lot of different things, like cooling/A/C fans and cruise. One part of it can fail and leave rest still working. 1 small bolt (4mm?) holds it to harness. Try borrowing one from similar car. If that it, its about $120 mail order. Dealer probably $200+

If your brake lights work, its not the switch. If speedometer is accurate, probably not that.
