scoobyvoodoo I really hope this works...I drive 110mi a day to and from work and cruise would really really be a nice addition. Lol

sailor The OP of the thread had an "S" model, so that part is OK for sure (didn't think different).

Didn't read through the thread for a double check on manual versions to make sure all the pedal switches are present, needed one is double use on at least some so I bet it's there.

scoobyvoodoo I've got a wheel with the cruise buttons on the way so....I suppose we'll find out. I'll post my results one way or another.

Not 100% certain, but given that the cruise control system in the 08-11 Focus is all electronically controlled and is part of every single Focus that rolled off the assembly line regardless of transmission type, I'd say that you would be able to do this. Don't quote me on that though

lkreykes Don't mean to bump the thread but I just did this to my '09 SE. I couldn't stand not having cruise and I am so grateful to have found this thread! Thank you so much! I have the light gray interior but bought a new steering wheel in black and kept my gray airbag and it looks really cool. Got it done in about 20 minutes, then drove to a local dealer where my buddy works and had him enable it for free in 15 minutes. Works a charm and makes me love the car even more!

focustokus Awesome write up, thank you for this. Just sourced a wheel and am going to give this a shot on my 5spd manual. Haven't read anything in the thread about it being tried on a manual, but doubt it will be an issue seeing as the later models had it on the SE.

AmishFocus I'm the "Mom" with the 2010 Focus in the post above - just got my cruise enabled at long last today! Thanks to this thread for all the hints! Along with the pitted steering wheel, it was the one big thing missing from this car and now that is not an issue. Hooray! :)

Blackpin93 I'm attempting to do this swap on my mom's 2010 Focus. The walkthrough is pretty solid except for one part: the steering wheel puller. It did not specify any specific KIND needed, so I rented one from Autozone. After about an hour of messing around with it, trying to figure out why it wouldn't work, I finally found a post somewhere that stated second gens require a 2-jaw puller. There are no holes to thread bolts into using the one from Autozone.

In short, save yourself the trouble, make sure to get a 2 jaw puller, and do NOT get this kind:

Another success!

Another success! Bought a good steering wheel with the buttons on Ebay for $68, changing it out was quick & easy with the tutorial here, just got back from the one Ford dealer in my city who was willing to listen to our request, paid $62 and it works flawlessly. THANK YOU for sharing your knowledge. You've saved us tons of money.
