1995 ranger automatic 4X4 4.0L cruise control issues

speed control light has not worked since ive owned it, I have read posts on how to wire it to make it work, so I cannot do the self check at this time.

here are some issues and repairs to date, (may have forgot a few)?

issue
cruise just up and stopped working was working fine for 4 months then POOF NOTHING, (only have had for four months so gremlins are creeping up on me), all fuses are good, replaced both switches left and right on steering wheel, I have replaced cruise deactivation switch (twice and jumper) replace VSS on transmission, and ABS sensor on rear-end (why not they were cheap cost and i don't know what previous owners have done), opened up the servo no rust movement is good nothing sticking, cable moves freely to throttle,

NOW
what I need and don't know is the trouble shooting the Voltages or resistance at connections or a good schematic to follow each wire, and what else could control the cruise to not work, I have a OBII code reader and it reads no codes, also I have a little electrical knowledge enough to trace issues, I have a good DMM, just lacking the knowledge to follow or trouble shoot or find a good diagram or schematic to trace

could some one with a lot more knowledge please assist me on this issue...

I miss my cruise and use it constantly ANY HELP is much appreciated

I see this thread has 500 views, I guess the right person who knows hasn't come along. Hopefully your reviving it from last year will be the ticket!

Best bet I'd say is that your steering wheel wiring jumpers have gone out... That's where I'd start if they weren't replaced with the switches.

Got my cruise issue repaired,
found out that speed control cutoff switch was issue (the recall fird issue)

here is what I found

part number# Motorcraft SW6350
which says fits and works for the 1995 ford ranger 4.0 engine is "INCORRECT"
(after replacing this part three times)

part number# Motorcraft SW-6349 which says fits and works for the 1995 ford ranger is "CORRECT"
(after replacing this with CORRECT part one time)

SHOTGUN $ wasted to find this out

Cruise is working perfectly AGAIN after 2 years .......

hopes this helps someone else here searching for speed control (cruise control) issues

Thanks for posting the update. It's a good thing you discovered the self induced issue on your own.

I think the parts retailer owes you something to compensate you for discovering their fitment guide was wrong.

Yes I have used rockauto.com,
And Googled many other sites looking for the same. Thats how I got the wrong part so many times.
Finally found the second part number on Ebay took a chance researched it and found "IT" to be the correct part for the 1995 Ranger Cruise/Speed Control Shut Off.
You learn something new everyday lol
