Finally Going to get Cruise Control
 
http://www.ebay.com/itm/2008-2010-Fo...p2047675.l2557

My max bid was $102, I just eked in under it; hopefully my local dealer will be able to handle enabling the PCM.

they have the tools for it. and if you can get it for around that price then it's a pretty good deal. Are you planning on installing it yourself?

Yeah, me and a friend are going to do it ourselves, there's a real good thread archived here on how to do it: http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=279456 I know I'll probably have to rent a puller to get the old one off.

Might be a stupid question but can u add cruise control to a manual?

Kipp 11-09-2012 11:19 AM

yes you can. same process as with an auto. only difference is the manual has two shutoff switches; one on the brake and another on the clutch.

Rabbitccc 11-09-2012 11:24 PM

Cool. So I assume both those shutoff switches are already there.

Kipp 11-10-2012 08:04 AM

yeah, it just picks up the signal through the computer. all oyu need is the same as above. just get a new wheel with cruise control in it. install and take it to the dealer to get it activated.

Cruise with a 5 speed is awesome because you can keep the same gear while accelerating. The auto tends to downshift too easily.
