just got a price off ford for the cruise clutch switch

$135.50 ouch

does anybody have or seen this switch
can it be retrofitted with an other switch

i take it that this is a normally closed switch nc
so when you press the clutch the circuit is broken

anybody want take a stab

thanks marty

Do u actually need 1 to run cruise, just tap the break when you want to slow down of shift gears. Also its a pretty small thing so just go to your local wreackers and grab 1 for nicks

These parts will be cheaper from a wreckers and shouldn't be hard to find:

-HQ - HZ holden brakelight switch (any early model holden will do) they fit perfectly in the clutch bracket, and can be adjusted.
-5 pin 12v relay

The holden brakelight switch will be a closed circuit when the pedal is depressed, so you run IGN 12v through it and the relay coil (pins 85 & 86)-brake light switch power is about the closest source. Use pins 30 & 87a for your cruise wires (red/green & green/white from memory) so the circuit is open in this condition.

Done this on my ute and works a treat.

Yeah thanks fellas - been there done that.

When I priced the switch from ford a few years ago it was around $97.
Trying to find a 2nd hand one was like finding rocking horse s**t. :P

Good to hear :P
The brakelight switch plug is the easiest place to get your 12v Ign power from.
