:D G'day Howsie!
Did the same thing 2months ago to my BA.
You can get kits on eBay from about $160(what I paid) upto $295+
Do not pay $295-sooner or later-took me 3months but they will come up or try wreckers!
You get radio swithches & cruise switches & Brake pedal switch&Instructions
(You already have a spot for brake switch to fit into-have a look!)
If you want to fit the kit yourself its easy to do,However you will need Torx bit set to remove steering wheel.
Once I had mine fitted I took it to local Fraud dealer who enambled the car to now reckonize that it now has cruise control. Also had them torque the steering wheel bolts as I don't have a torque wrench.
This cost me another $80.
Hope this helps ya Howsie! :wink:

I've been able to activate and de-activate Cruise on my lab PCM. But not with an ELM unfortunately.

Auto or Manual Kits?

If auto, does anyone know if there is any difference between the Falcon and Territory cruise kits? Since they use the same pedal box and steering wheel, I'm thinking not.
