i have just recieved a cruise control unit and buttons that i purchased off ebay.
i have a manual ef falcon gli.
gli's didnt come with ABS did they? because i dont think they have added the non ABS document in.
i have read the techincal document a few times i dunno if im being lazy or not but where is the actual control unit mounted?
its all a kuffuffle for me haha

EF GLi's were optioned with abs.

Yes you can retrofit cruise to a manual GLi.

I have a home made clutch switch you can have also, I purchased a genuine.

Wiring can be tricky if you have to add it, I've done one with Dazzat, pretty simple actually, just not easy for us 6'3" blokes.

easiest way to tell is,
If you have 2 pipes coming from your master cylinder you have ABS, if you have 3, you don't.

Also there would be a cruise plug blanked off at the master cylinder (under the inner guard panel)

I am fitting cruise to my non abs ef gli at the moment, can anyone help with some wiring info as the retro fit plug is no longer available from ford.

Info how to make the loom and where it plugs in would be great, otherwise some info on wiring it direct. I have the plug for the control unit & the Brake Master cylinder switch.

Cheers
:)
