Hi,
I am doing a manual conversion, and I would like to know what I have to do for the cruise control to disengage properly when the clutch is engaged.
Is it just something that is plugged into the existing wiring??

Cheers
Chris

If your using a pin kit, you have to mount a switch (similar to a brake switch) and hook it up to the spare connector in the footwell (not sure what models have this). If you have a Ford pedal box, hole should be there. Just mount it in. If the plug isnt there, your going to have to wire it in. I dont have a schematic on hand at the moment so cant help you out but im pretty sure most eseries have the spare plug there somewhere.

Other thing is to do what im going to have to do. Be wary of it, not downchange when cruise is on otherwise hello rev limiter
