Cruise Control problem

New forum member and new to Ford Escape,so will probably have lots of questions. I just got my son a 2002 XLT w/ 99,737 miles. Notice after I purchased that cruise control doesn't work.
The ON switch doesn't do anything. If I press the SET button, the dash light indicating cruise is on lights up, but cruise isn't set. Coast and Resume don't do anything since speed isn't set.
Any ides?

I had that exact problem with my 2001 XLT, just reconnect the throttle cable that comes off of the cruise control box and you should be good to go.

While on the topic, my cruise isn't working, but its not becuase of the throttle body cable, it simply will not power on at all. Pressing the on button doesn't even cause the light to come on. I tried looking in the fuse descriptions in the owner guide to check for a blown fuse, but I couldn't find it. Is there a fuse for the cruise control?

Checked both fuses, neither are blown. :confused: Any other ideas?
