Q: Cruise control quit working on 1997 Lincoln Mark VIII

asked by on

The cruise control doesn't work anymore. I had the fuses checked and it all looks fine. There was some corrosion on the electrodes, but I had it scraped off. The light for the cruise control doesn't work either. I tried to troubleshoot this and read some stuff about this model's cruise control but I cannot fix it. Do you have some advice on how to fix this?
