Just one question, dose the 96 Bronco have a indicator light some where on the dash that shows when the cruz control is engaged? Thanks

Yo George,
First, for safety, was cruise control, if equipped recall work completed by dealership? Call dealer & have VIN ready.
"Summary: ON CERTAIN PICKUP TRUCKS, PASSENGER VEHICLES, SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES, AND MOTOR HOMES CHASSIS, THE SPEED CONTROL DEACTIVATION SWITCH MAY, UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS, LEAK INTERNALLY AND THEN OVERHEAT, SMOKE, OR BURN. THIS COULD RESULT IN AN UNDERHOOD FIRE."
No light.

96 Bronco Owners Guide by Hiller Ford @ http://www.hillerfor...rd/96bronco.pdf

See page 112, etc.
Here it is;
"Speed Control (If equipped) Your vehicle has speed control, so you can automatically maintain a constant speed above 30 mph (48 km/h). The switches to operate the speed control are on the steering wheel. Use of radio transmitting equipment that is not Federal Communications Commission (FCC) or in Canada the Canadian Radio and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) approved may cause the speed control to malfunction. Therefore, use only properly installed FCC (CRTC in Canada) approved radio transmitting equipment in your vehicle.
The speed control switches To set the speed control: 1. Press and release the ON switch. 2. Accelerate to the desired speed above 30 mph (50 km/h) using the accelerator pedal. 3. Press the SET ACCEL switch and release it immediately to set your speed. If you keep this switch pressed, your speed will continue to increase. 4. Take your foot off the accelerator pedal. Your vehicle will maintain the speed you set. If you drive up or down a steep hill, your vehicle may momentarily slow down or speed up, even though the speed control is on. This is normal. . NOTE: If your speed increases above your set speed while driving in j (Overdrive) on a downhill grade, you may want to depress the transmission control switch located on the shift lever to turn off overdrive to reduce vehicle speed. Speed control cannot reduce the vehicle speed if it goes above your set speed on a downhill grade. For the best fuel economy during normal driving conditions, leave the shift select in Overdrive, or resume as soon as practical.
In mountainous areas, at higher elevations, or when pulling a trailer, the speed control may not be able to maintain the preset speed with the transmission in overdrive. If your vehicle comes with a 5-speed manual transmission, you may prefer to drive in 4 (Fourth) gear, in mountainous areas or at high altitudes, to improve speed control performance. In order to downshift (with a manual transmission) with the speed control operating, you must press either the brake or clutch pedal long enough to disengage the speed control. Wait a second before depressing the clutch again and making the shift so that the speed control can fully return to the idle position. RWARNING Do not shift the transmission into N (Neutral) with the speed control on. To maintain a preset speed under the above conditions, with electronically controlled transmissions — press the Transmission Control Switch. The indicator light will turn on and illuminate the word “OFF.” This will cancel “Overdrive”. You can press the Transmission Control Switch on or off at any speed. For the best fuel economy during normal driving conditions, press the Transmission Control Switch to turn off the light. This allows overdrive operation.

Accelerating With the Speed Control Operating You can use the accelerator pedal to speed up momentarily. When you take your foot off the accelerator, the vehicle will return to the set speed. Resetting the Speed Control To reset the speed control to a lower speed, press and hold the COAST switch. Let your vehicle slow down to the desired speed and release the COAST switch. Your vehicle has a “tap-down” feature that allows you to decrease your current speed in increments of 1 mph (1.6 km/h) by a momentary tap of the COAST switch. Multiple taps of the COAST switch will decrease your vehicle speed 1 mph (1.6 km/h) for each tap. For example, if you are currently set at 65 mph (104 km/h) and tap the COAST switch 5 times your vehicle speed will decrease and set at 60 mph (96 km/h). To reset the speed control to a higher speed, you can follow any of these procedures: Accelerate to the desired speed using the accelerator pedal, then press the SET ACCEL switch and release it immediately.

Press and hold the SET ACCEL switch until the vehicle accelerates to the desired speed, then release the switch. TAP-UP — This allows you to increase your current speed in increments of 1 mph (1.6 km/h) by a momentary tap of the SET-ACCEL switch. Multiple taps of the SET-ACCEL switch will increase your vehicle speed 1 mph (1.6 km/h) for each tap. For example, if you are currently set at 60 mph (96 km/h) and tap the SET-ACCEL switch 5 times your vehicle speed will increase and set at 65 mph (104 km/h). Turning the Speed Control Off You can cancel the speed control while you are driving. Press the OFF switch. The speed control is off. If you want to resume speed control, press the ON switch and reset the speed control by pressing the SET ACCEL button. Press the clutch pedal slightly (if equipped). The speed control is suspended, but you can reset it by pressing SET ACCEL or return to the previous set speed with the RESUME switch. Press the brake pedal slightly. The speed control is suspended, but you can reset it by pressing SET ACCEL or return to the previous set speed with the RESUME switch. In addition, the speed control is turned off each time you turn the vehicle off.
Driving uphill or on a steep grade When the speed control is on, your vehicle may significantly drop speed when driving uphill, especially with a heavy load. If the speed drops more than 8 to 14 mph (15 -25 km/h) the automatic speed control will, by design, be canceled. You may have to temporarily resume manual speed control while driving up a steep grade in order to maintain the speed you desire. Frequent shifting of an automatic transmission or speed loss during speed control operation can be eliminated by shifting out of overdrive into drive (or by pressing the Transmission Control Switch, if equipped). These conditions could occur in hilly terrain or at higher elevations. If the speed control “dropped out” after your climb is completed, the speed of your vehicle can be reset with the SET ACCEL switch, or returned to the previous set speed with the RESUME switch, as long as you are driving over 30 mph (48 km/h).
Cancelling and Resuming a Set Speed If you press the brake pedal, the speed control is cancelled. You can return to the speed you set by using the RSM switch, as long as you did not press the OFF switch. To resume the speed you had before, you must be driving at least 30 mph (50 km/h). Press and release the RESUME switch. Your vehicle gradually returns to the previously set speed and then maintains it. RWARNING If your vehicle has speed control, do not use it on slippery roads. You could lose control of your vehicle and could injure someone."
