Cruise Control:1993 ford explorer- While Traveling On The Highway, I Had My Cruise Control On. As I Approached Another vehicle From Behind, I Put My Foot On The Brake Pedal To Deactivate The Cruise Control. The Control Did Not Deactivate, And I Had To Push The “off” Button On The Steering Wheel To Gain Control. This Isn’t An Isolated Incident, This Has Happened To Me On 3 Other Occasions. Also When This Switch Goes Bad, It Is Apparently Tied Into The Rear Brake Lights, As They Don’t Work When It Goes Out. On All Occasions When This Switch Goes Out, I Have Taken It To A ford Dealer(ross ford- Piedmont, Mo.) To Have It Repaired, So It Should Be Documented. I Feel This Is A Safety Hazard That Should Be Investigated. *la
