You need to replace the sensor on the end of the master cylinder even if your vehicle is not listed for the recall. It can cause fires.
Ford has added a lot of vehicles to the list. Try entering your VIN here:
Recall Information - Ford
You can use a jumper in the wire harness going to the sensor to test the rest of the CC system. Do not leave it there or you WILL have a fire.

That sensor WILL cause the CC to stop working. It's a redundant brake switch in case the switch under the dash quits working.I called the local Ford dealer and talked to their service dept. I read off my VIN and the guy told me there are no recalls for my vehicle.
Do you think that the sensor is the cause of the cruise not working? How much is a replacement sensor and how do I install it?
Which manual? I looked in the Chilton guide under cruise and it refused to tell me anything, instead saying I needed to go to a mechanic. I am having a tough time finding info.Ours was under the dash, I believe #38, but check your manual, it very easily could be different between the Windy and Taurus.
I have a PDF of the manual. This is what it shows me for passenger compartment fuses. I am unsure which is the cruise fuse. Can you help?The owner's manual for the car. It should list all your fuses\relays and their location.
