The car is wired the same as the donor car, so we are at a loss as to why it wont engage. Anyone have any experience with it? I guess its a long shot.
if it wasn't factory fitted on that car, there will be several issues. Additional relays are required, additional switches on brake pedal, correct ABS, BCM TCM and ECU models along with the correct firmware (this of course is assuming the ABS module allows for cruise control, along with the engine ECM, gearbox TCM and Body Control Module)
its a bit more than just adding a switch....yours i believe is cable so all those bits will be needed as well.
I wanted to add hill descent to mine, found a switch for $20 from the wreckers.
Checked and found out the ABS controller doesn't have the internal circuitry, the car has the wiring in the loom, but none of the additional relays. Will cost about $3000 if i want to get it working.
I have decided not to buy the switch.
