Brake pressure switch (cruise control deactivation switch) 2003 Explorer Sport XLT.

would like some advice and diagram on changing the brake sensor switch. My switch is working intermittently, on again off again. Should I just change it?? adjust it??

Please advise.

thanks

I have been messing with the switch on the brake, but I cannot see the mechanics of any pressure switch. Please advise on the mechanism.

That part is the cruise control deactivation switch, and it has a recall. There is a different harness for it too. Check this link for more information: http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/...d.php?t=171739

problem solved
guy who just installed remote start pulled out a wire at the BPPS (under the dash)
This directly affects cruise
dealer is fixing at his cost - wire was actually pulled out of the metal spade lug
