fitting cruise control to EL auto

Has anyone fitted a cruise control (not aftermarket) to an EL wagon?

What parts are needed besides steering wheel. My mechanic said all EL's that he's worked on have the wiring there already. Anyone confirm or otherwise?

Cheers

i thought EL's had Cruise Control fitted...

if u have a different steering wheel im imagining that the wires will already be there. Most after 1996 fords especially EL range came out with Cruise control. you sound like ur not the first owner of ur wagon?

If it has ABS the wiring will be there, otherwise you need the loom from the actuator to the multi plug above the fuse panel (soldered in)

ahh ok GLi had optional Cruise Control & ABS

"These models have a stripped down Engine Bay wiring Loom, which is missing a few connectors, cruise control being one"

I sent you a private message about this shit. (Get back to me if it works)
