Thanks for your reply;

Called a couple more dealers today, wow, they really either don't know anything about this, or they just don't want to do this.

One guy first said that he thought an additional servo is needed, then they actually called the shop forman on the service dept floor and he must have set them somewhat straight. But they still wanted to bring in the car, hook the computer up to it, to see if it can be "calibrated" to use the cruise control.

Yesterday I asked one service guy that if I did the work myself, would they flash the computer for me? He said yes, they do that for people all the time. So I ordered the steering wheel on ebay for $179.

Do you really need a steering wheel puller to remove the old one?

Thanks;
srg

No steering wheel puller should be needed to get the wheel off. Just pull the fastener off the steering column and pull up a couple of times. It should pull off.

Mike, thanks for the reply, but unfortunetly, I couldn't get the wheel off.

I ended up driveing to the dealer I bought the Steering wheel from, Gary Yeoman Ford of Daytona Beach, and having them do the work.

So, 2010 Focus sedan S, plus cruise-control steering wheel, plus computer flash = fully working factory install cruise control!

No extra servos, no Ford "kit"....... Just find a dealer who will do the flash and you're set!

That's where I ended up getting mine installed. Did it on a road trip down to Florida.

Well to quote myself, I was wrong about the steering wheel puller. Now that I think about it, I did use a puller on mine. Sorry about that SRG!

I have tried to find a dealer within a 100mile radius of my town and they keep telling me no they can't reprogram my pcm to turn on cruise control. Does anyone know if there is any way to do it yourself?

You are dealing with a small and or cheap dealer that doesn't want to get the 'programmer' because it does cost no way to do that yourself. BTW you need to ask them Why they cannot program the pcm. It IS possible that they do not know how

By any chance can this be done to an '11 ford focus. This is the last year they made this body style before they changed it for '12.
I have the 2011 SE.
Thanks

Hi Gang
I'm looking for a dealer in the Detroit area willing to enable cruise control after I install the correct steering wheel. The dealers I've contacted are not interested in helping. (Suburban ford sterling Hghts. & Russ Milan).
Anybody got any leads ??
Thanks
Gary
