I have the steering wheel puller and I plan to do that part myself now, buying the wheel tomorrow actually so should be able to report next week or so if it worked, my only problem was the re programming. Hopefully I can convince the dealership this time, I think I will, and the beer idea is good but I'm 20 -_- lol

Both dealerships I walked into looked at me like I was crazy and stupid -_- but this time I'm getting the reprogram if I gotta do it myself, just ordered the steering wheel with the buttons! 275 with free shipping on ebay. I checked the part on fords website and it was ~350, good deal I thought

20?,......Doh!!!!!!! so much for the beer idea!
This could also be why they are blowing you off!, they think some young kid that thinks hes a know it all and we will show him otherwise!!!!.... Guess all you can do is try and disarm their attitude with a neutral but assertive demeanor, show them the procedure and let them know that this is another easy revenue stream for them and see if you can get them motivated that way!?

After all money talks!, when the chips are down the bull is empty!

I agree that money talks, sometimes people just seem deaf -_- and ya I think my age probably has something to do with it, I'm sure if my dad went in he could get his way. Maybe I'll drag him along lol

ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS drag your parent into a dealership with you. They always refuse to do basic things for us "younger" people because we're apparently "stupid and don't know what we're talking about".

My local dealership hates me because I pitched a fit when they tried to pull shit on me when my car was clearly under warranty (sunroof stopped working and my power steering pump got hungry for o-rings).

Well installed my cruise control wheel yesterday and went down to the dealership today to get the cruise control activated, unlike the first time i came prepared with paper work this time, i brought them two different things(a special service message and a step by step instruction on how to do it, i highly recommend this) I printed out this
20341 2008 FOCUS DEALER INSTALLED CRUISE CONTROL
SOME EARLY 2008 FOCUS VEHICLES WERE UNABLE TO HAVE SPEED CONTROL INSTALLED FROM THE FACTORY WHEN CERTAIN OTHER VEHICLE OPTIONS WERE ORDERED DUE TO EARLY ORDERING GUIDE REQUIREMENTS. CURRENTLY NO DEALER INSTALLED SPEED CONTROL KIT IS AVAILABLE DUE TO MULTIPLE STEERING WHEEL AND VEHICLE CONTENT CONFIGURATIONS. (((THE ADDITION OF SPEED CONTROL REQUIRES THE REPLACEMENT OF THE STEERING WHEEL (3600), WHICH INCLUDES THE STEERING WHEEL CONTROL SWITCHES (9C888) TO MATCH THE REST OF THE VEHICLES EQUIPMENT CONTENT. IN ADDITION, IT ALSO REQUIRES THE USE OF IDS UNDER THE ‘PROGRAMMABLE PARAMETERS’ SELECTION TO ENABLE SPEED CONTROL.))) NOTE: THIS IS NOT A WARRANTABLE MODIFICATION OR REPAIR. CLAIMS RELATED TO THIS MODIFICATION ARE SUBJECT TO WARRANTY CHARGEBACK.
EFFECTIVE DATE: 7/15/2008
(((Plug in IDS -> Start New Session -> Tool Box -> PCM -> Programmable Parameters -> Speed Control -> Enable)))
everything i triple parenthesized i highlighted for them. I explained that i already installed the wheel myself(since they refused to do so last time) and all i needed them to do was activate the cruise. Took them about an hour since they were busy and it cost me 100$(alittle more than what other people paid for it but i was happy to pay it) and bam it WORKS! so excited, and looking forward to new mods, thanks to everyone who helped out
