The only central connecting point for all these systems is the ECM. I mean it is possible you have a vacum leak on the cruise control system causing a problem and then a short or blown fuse that would effect the door locks and finally a bad solenoid in the trans all at once but I would look at the ECM. Now, if the Trans has been acting up, the 4X4 not working, for a while it is possible that it is just that bad Solenoid in the transmission. I would check the ECM first then move to the Transmission.

Random stalling I've been having the same problem with random staling with no warning at all over the past 3 years. Each time I complained to the dealership they told me nothing was wrong. It only ever happened when the car was completely stopped until TODAY. Needless to say, I told them if they don't find the problem & fix it I will go ballistic on them.

Cruise control not working suddenly. I had the brake light switch replaced a few weeks ago because the gear was stuck in park. Sometime after this the cruise stopped working, but I can't really say it was immediately after because I didn't notice. I had the mechanic who replaced the switch check it again to make sure the wires were hooked up and he said it was. The cruise light does not come on within the pushbutton switch nor does the cruise control engage with the wheel controls. The

We have an 1993 Ford Econoline E-150 Van that chugs, and spews out black exhaust unless we let it warm up for 20 minutes.
