Relocation of cruise control buttons

Hey. I have an eb fairmont and i was wondering if there is any way that i could move the cruise control buttons (or make new ones) so that i could put in a steering wheel that doesnt have them. The reason being is that i have a particular wheel that i like and i dont want to fork out $300 ish for a ebgt steering wheel, i'd rather get a nice other one.


Help would be apprecieated.


Thanks.

Hey man, a friend of mine did the same thing. He used the power arial and L/U door switches above the handbrake for the cruise buttons. Just wired up the 2 resistors and diode. He rubbed off the print on the switches with paint thinner. Thats if u dont want to adjust yer antenna height again..

Thanks heaps, i just might do that. Would it be possible to install another switch somewhere to allow me to move the areal height? Also, could you send / post me a pic of what your friends set up eventually looked like?


Thanks.

Plumb in a set from EF-AU that hang on the side of the wheel rim then use the centre cover to hide the connectors?
