cruise control problem

I have a 2008 F350 with intermittent cruise control function. Occasionally when I turn on cruise and hit set, it does not come on no matter how many times I push on and set . Much of the time I can shut my truck down and restart and cruise will work, but not always. Once it is working - I can turn off cruise and restart it and it always works. If I turn my truck off there is a chance the cruise will not start. Anyone have a similar problem?

The fix is to replace the solenoid on the master cyclinder. I forget which one it is but the service department at Ford should be able to help you the solenoid is only $35.00 if I rememeber correctly. Easy repair takes all of about 20 minutes with a a crows foot socket wrench. Unplug the old one remove it install the new one and plug back in. Clean the small amount of brake fluid that drops out.
