Can you give me an ebay address for the wires? I was thinking that I could try the switches first directly to the gem connector.

Have something to contribute?

Hello there,

 

I'm looking to add cruise control, have activated it in the gem, instrument cluster and PCM (I hope!) but need the buttons etc to test.

 

Does anyone know if the mk1 buttons would plug in and work ok just for testing purposes?

 

Only mk2 buttons I can find are more than I want to throw away if it wont work.

Hi Paul, the MK1 wont work as I believe they are different resistances, and the mondeo wont work either.

 

you can either wire them yourself, orbuy the steering wheel / just the switches.

 

Alternatively you could go to the likes of China where they have built the buttons direct into the volume control stalk.

Thanks for that info, you wouldn't happen to have a link for anybody selling the modified volume control stalk would you, I've searched and couldn't find anything.

Original steering controls-

You do need a 4 spoke steering wheel with airbag to fit them though.

If anyone can explain in dummy terms where it attaches to and whether a Sport model is capable of cruise control retrofitting I may consider that my next project.

Hi Clive, the way I did it was to remove the cowling, strip a bit of insulation off the two wires (brown and white) then wrapped the open end if the wires from the cruise buttons it's fine. Just check your gembboard main harness for the white and brown wires and it should be good to go. I have a test rig I set up, not sure if it's in one piece but your welcome to borrow it?

In theory if I connect up the cc wires then I should be able to use the button/switch self test mode inbuilt on the car (press and hold rear demister button when starting car).
If I get beeps on all buttons then all good.
Do I need elm config to activate the cc modes?

Yeah Elm needs to enable it at a hecs and gem level I also used the button test and confirmed that they all worked.

Drop me a pm when you get a chance

Hello Friends! 
 
My car is the Focus, but Brazilian. 
 
On the first page, which tells you what is required for install the cruise control seen talking on GEM connector. 
 
"2 Check the GEM connector 103 -. Blue one with two rows of wires, located on the left next to fuses - if it has brown wire attached to pin 10 and white wire attached to pin 18. 
"
 
This is my GEM connector, it has the necessary wires (I marked the ones I think are)? 
 
 
Thank you!

yep, that certainly looks right!

 

Have you got the switches underneath the pedals?

Yes, my car has sensors on the pedals! I will try to activate the CC with Elmconfig and if it works buy buttons. I'm thinking these: http://pt.aliexpress...1741782161.html
