    need owner's manual for '05 Ford Taurus

    I'll have to look around for someone who has steady nerves to help with that. I used to be able to do tedious stuff like that, but no more.

    need owner's manual for '05 Ford Taurus

    Now if I can get that damn A/C working,, my big issues will be solved. That puts me at only one small issue remaining. The rear defroster is not "hitting" on all the grids. Need to know if there's a way to repair them, or do I have to throw a brick through the window, and get a new on under...

    Well, guys, it's with red face and head held low that I have to report the cruise issue is solved. The damn cable from the servo to the throttle was not connected. Works great now. If any of you who helped me, point a finger this way and laugh uncontrollably, you will NOT get your Christmas...

    Didn't get to see if the cable moved after the switch tests. Kinda hard to do some of this by myself. I'll check on this stuff in the next day or two.

    At the risk of sounding dumber than I already am, what does the servo look like, located?

    need owner's manual for '05 Ford Taurus

    It has a switch of some kind mounted right on the brake pedal arm, then a green one that looks like the one in your pic. BUT if my cruise light is on, and Ii hit the brake, the light goes out. Wouldn't that tell me the switch is working?

    When I hit "on" I don't see anything, but when I then hit "set" the cruise light lights up on the dash. Hitting the brake pedal turns it back off. Plus, as above, all the flashes when doing the diagnostics, flash as they should.

    OK I did the diagnostic "turn on" then did the switch sequence within 5 secs total. After pressing each switch, the "cruise" light flashed once. There were no multiple flashes. Next move??

    Nick, for some reason I was unable to print or even copy and paste those instructions you posted here for the cruise diagnostics. I wrote them down. Here's what I did......Held the "off", turned the ign to "run". It flashed once, indicating it was in the diagnostic mode. I then released...

    Guys, a quick update on my A/C issue: I came down with a nasty ass cold, and couldn't make my appointment at the garage. Might be while until I can re-schedule it.

    Nick, I am not frustrated with you, but with the way i sometimes present things that end up being misconstrued. Don't stop with you humor. The cold weather is upon us all, so from that stand point it isn't a pressing issue. BUT the A/c also works when putting the selector to "defrost". I use...

    The can is NOT empty. I can feel the weight plus the liquid "sloshing "' in it. It was a brand new can I just put on before creating this thread. I've handled enough bottles/cans of some form of gas or another to know when I'm holding an empty can. If the valve on the A/C is NOT defective...
