I know there are alot of ppl who have dead cruise control... is there anyway you can set cruise up on the dash instead of the steering wheel .. im pretty sure its just the conections between th switches and the dash that are dodge... so have like the on off acc dec and reset as a few "mission control" buttons on the dash like next to the door look button in ef's

why not test the wiring with test light or multimeter and repair the wiring and or switches? i am sure its easier to use on steering wheel than to try and reach the dash, to adjust or rest while you are driving over 80-90ks. im not sure the min,. speed i think 80ks? test the system it may be a small repair. good luck :roll: :roll:

The cruise switches just have resistors in them to send a certain voltage to the cruise control unit VIA the horn wires.
