lol its already made according to the info they supplied. basically you disconnect your radio stalk, remove the two screws holding the steering column surround...i think scotch lock onto the wires. put surround back on plug in new radio/cruise stalk.

 

Get activation done on GEM, IC and PCM (im clarifying this)...i know it needs activating

 

Done. :D

 

I get paid on thursday night for friday and so will send the fund for one of these and try. Ive checked all the wiring etc and its all there.

 

EDIT: i may even go out tonight and spend some time playing with my VCM to activate cruise control so next week when i get it, its a case of plug and play :D

Yeah ive already got him down from £130. I think the main cost is the fact its a new media stalk from ford that they modify. Not too sure how much a new one costs. But in the end 9/10 it cheaper that buying a new steering wheel, buttons, airbag and then getting it activated

I paid £40 for a steering wheel with cruise buttons

I think i can push him down a bit more to the similar price of the steering wheel listed previously. But to be honest i dont like the sounds of taking my steering wheel off and airbag unit (possibly buying second hand); i dont have a decent torque wrench to tighten the wheel up properly and knowing my luck the airbag will go off when i try and get it off...im like Mr. Bean when it comes to spanners, give me a computer any day...IT Techy not Mechy is my motto.

The airbag is easy to remove as long as you disconnect the battery and allow any residual charge to disperse.
The only tricky part is swapping the airbag covers over.

if the price could be done either way and the wiring of the edited unit isnt a nightmare, then I would go either way :P

WWEEEYYYYYYYYHEYYYYYYYYYY!!!

 

me? I can go whichever direction I fancy, but the Mrs positions me, tells me what speed and altitute and for how long I am permitted to travel.

 

And I can assure you, that was not intended as an entendre!

Just a little update, on anticipation of arranging purchase of a stalk, to test. I went out and activated cruise using IDS. I activated under module programming on PCM, GEM and IC...it even connected to the ford network and downloaded all the new calibrations for me.

 

Did a scan and it showed an error saying cruise is operational but stalk is missing...Clever thing...

 

So now to wait, get my stalk, hook up and play :D will keep you posted.

Sounding very hopeful.
How much did your IDS cost?
