XML is not difficult , and you would easily define each set of instructions needed to machine switch rules on or off , you may have trouble getting the Code in the first place though.

Oh the xml part is easy. To help explain more I'll share the code from my car:
FC9C170001006002010211010803000000020002000001010201000402000003000101000000000002000002070105000100000083000000000003020001000224000301031316653100020202000001000001000200010001010000000004000001000000000000000007040002000101030200010002000001000002040100000000000000000200010000000003000400020000000200000000040000050000000000000000000000000200030000020000020000000005000001020000010001000000000000000001000200000000000000000000040001000102000001000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

That contains every detail about my car from the engine & fuel type to the radio & cruise control (even cloth/leather seats! Though I doubt amending that part would give me leather...)
I sat on my laptop working out what [most of] those numbers mean and then amending the ones I wanted.

I will look at making a program that decodes, amends and compiles it for me (so the dealer part is not required) but that's a long way off right now.

The Asdata.xml file is universal then in that case. We don't need our own, just 'any' and then we can fine tune our own features based on that.

It looks very simple in comparison to what I thought, but I can't believe only the wheel is required? I thought it required braking components as well?

Can you not post your explanation of each segment?

You seem unwilling to help, not very car club-like if you don't mind me saying. I appreciate it was hard work to decode, but don't you want to help others?

All wiring is there you need just the cruise control steering wheel

1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9 wires goes to the radio and cruise control... may if you do not have radio control you not have any off this...

Hmm, that's quite reassuring then. Simple swap of the wheel and an hour of a Ford employees time.

So are you planning on offering any assistance in terms of decrypting the XML file? Or not?

iNath, did you manually modify the xml file as if you did and you could provide the decryption details then I would happily make a program regenerate the contents of the file.

However I need to know the process of getting and writing the file as I have no idea although do have an OBD2 reader using USB - RS232 convertor.

Let me know.

Pfff, Ford and their helping hands once a car is sold and paid for .... zero, nada, ...

I am happy I got my cruise control as an option on my Econetic. It's alot more accurate to maintain speed than my own foot. Consumption with cruisecontrol is always much better than trying to the same with my foot.
