My cruise control on 2005 Ford Taurus

I used my cruise control daily for more than 7 months and then I took my car to have the brakes assessed and now it doesnt work. the light still comes on when I turn it on.. but it wont hold a speed! I need my cruise control. How do i repair it myself?

I had a similar problem. After suffering a 14 hour drive without it, my grandpa discovered the cable had simply slipped off the battery. It should be easy to see and if you can't figure out which one it is, check the manual. You may have to replace the clip, which is really easy. Hope this helps.
Also, remove the battery before you attach the cable.
