Default cruise control won't work

Since I bought my truck the cruise never worked. The on/off button didn't even light up. I got a used on/off switch from a junkyard, it lights up but the cruise doesn't work. Any pointers? It's for my 01 XLT

Check around on the engine. Around the throttle body are. There may be a cable disconnected.

I do have a manual, checked all the fuses and they are good. I know ford has a recall for my truck about the cruise, maybe that's what it is. Is there a certain place i should look for the wiring for it? I really don't know what I'm looking for.

The wiring they fix in the recall is on the driver side. The recall was to prevent it from catching fire. So it has to work before it could catch fire.

idk if that recall goes for a 2003 year model. but when using cruise control and accelerating it sounds like a loud bee buzzz coming from behind the cluster? any ideas as to what that is?

Just google Ford cruise control amplifer and it will tell you how it works and how to test the system.
