Hi, I have done this.

You will need to check out my old build thread.

http://www.fordmods.com/benj-s-interior-mods-t60443.html

Scroll down the page.

This is the inspiration and guide I used.

http://www.fordmods.com/viewtopic.php?t=49258&highlight=custom%2520cruise%2520control

Unfortunately it looks like the pics are not working.

I later converted to using EF/EL cruise in the EB, and to get the switches to work, I changed the correct resistor value. By doing this however you loose one of the functions. I choose to loose the set/slow function.

What have you checked?
It can be the Cruise control module, steering wheel switches, cable that goes from the cruise control module to the throttle body (it is normal foor the plastic clip at the throttle body to break), or the brake light switch.

I'll write up a quick troubleshooting guide tomorrow (when I can be bothered getting the notepad that I wrote all of my information on).

I would not be suprised if it blew again

I can't be bothered writing up the info that I have.

documents.php?d=11
^^This matches what is in the genuine workshop manuals (and is better written that anything that I could come up with)
