This is doing my head in.

 

The car can "see" the buttons as I have tested them with the rear heater switch "trick"

 

I have all the wiring and switches present.

 

I have activated cruise in GEM, HEC and PCM with ELMConfig 0.2.11c

 

Could there be a fuse or relay that I need?

 

Or is it only possible to do this in IDS?

 

 

 

Ford buttons or self made? I noticed that the GEM beebs on the rear window heater trick, even if the buttons were set up all wrong.

Sorry for late response, i was on work trip to germany, and the hotel had no wifi (what is this, 1960's ?!)

 

For the resistors, the 511 is ok, and 300 you can make from the allready existing 120 and 180 resistors :)

 

I can take piture inside my remote tomorrow, but the awesome paint picture that i did shows same, much more clearly since its kinda messy looking inside the remote when you have the resistors going from button leg to button leg, and the jumpwires going on to another legs.

 

It is possible to use the existing connections on the board, but i didnt bother to plan it that long. I just used stanley to cut the conections 2mm away from the button legs, and then used the resistors and jumpwires to do the connection. 

 

Some pictures:

 

Here you can see the button legs, marked whit sharpie

Here is picture of the original connections cutted out:

Now, here is picture of the connections. DO NOT COPY THIS ONE!!! THIS IS WRONG! This pic is from the first version that i made, and it does not have that "looping". This picture is just to show you how i packed the resistors inside the remote, and what i mean whit the jumpwires (brown ones)

I was going to modify my stereo stalk actually! My radio has been replaced with a non standard, so its just sitting there lol...

 

I was hoping to use the "phone" button as the off button, the + and - as the speed up / down, and then the channel flicking buttons as the res and on buttons?

 

Is there any particular wires I need to use? I was going to just cut up a network cable and use the wires from within lol...

 

Appreciate the advice so far Carlos.

 

 

Here's super cool pic that i made whit paint! :D 

 

Cruise
 
 
You can use the circuit inside the remote, and the buttons on the circuit board (thats what the picture tries to represent). 
 
Just cut the existing button connections, and just solder wires to the button legs, like shown on the picture. The 300ohm resistor is not a "standard" resistor, but you can make 300ohm by soldering 120 & 180 right after each other.

What kind of radio stalk do you have? (or morelike what kind of stereo). I had the CD6000 whit the Vol Up, Mode, Vol Down buttons on the front, and Seek + / - Rocker on the behind. I made the Vol+ to Set +, Mode to RES, Vol- to SET- and the seek up/down to On/Off.

So in that case you would have a very long wire, with 5 resistors wired in each. Then, out the other end of the resistor, you would solder a wire that then goes to one side of the switch, and then link the other side of the switch to the "on" circuit?

 

(I know this is a long thread, and I cant remember seeing it!) but is anyone able to point out which coloured wires that we need to wire these into (under the steering cowling?) i.e. on comes from X and off goes to Y...

 

Finally, do you need a momentary push button? as wouldn't you then break the cruise circuit when it disengages?

 

Yeap, if we assume that the current comes from the White wire to the first resistor input, the first resistors output goes to second input, second output goes to thrid input and so on. and on the end of the 5th come the brown wire. 

 

Now you connect the off button before the first resistor to the white wire, and to the brown wire

 

set+ button goes after the first resistor, and to brown wire

set- button goes after the secod button, and brown wire

res goes after third and on goes after fourth, 

 

So, when no button is pressed, the current goes trough all the resistors (i think this is so that the gem knows that the remote is connected)

 

When you push OFF, it skips all the resistors, and just shorts the 2 wire. 

When you push the SET+ button, it connects the 2 wires right after the 1st resistor etc. 

 

If you are planning to use the radio remote, i can give you somesort of how-to, what so solder where. 

 

if you plann use your own buttons, you need those momentary buttons. The CC remote only gives "impulses" to the ECU what to do :)
