i am wanting to install cc but i dont have the wire behind the clocks to plug into the switch!!
i have read a few guides but still not 100% sure.. so any help would be great ful....

this is the way i think it works

1, tap into the grey wire under the fuse box....
2, run the wire inside the car to the clutch pedal....
3, use some wire and wire up a 12v lead from the *** lighter
4, use a mobby connecter and put the end of the wires into the connector (using glue)
5, plug the wire into clutch switch
6, make sure wires are all secure
7, add stalk
8, tech2
9, done....

(just basic rly)
can anyone confirm this is correct or if i have missed a step.... i have a mk5 1.4 twinport!... the thing that bothers me is have i got the wiring correct or not?

I did mine a month ago i only had to run one wire from fusebox to the switch, the rest were already behind the clocks if your not sure about doing it i'd take to someone who does because if you tap into the wrong wire it could turn into an expensive job.

If you are missing the plug for the clutch switch as well, you can substitute this with the wiring you get for computer motherboard connections - it fits perfectly. Connect one pin of the switch to the wire you've just laid and the other end to 12v (the wire to the ciggy lighter is ideal to tap for this purpose). Doesn't matter which way round it's connected. A dab of glue/sealant is recommended too.

i dont understand this part?? ive ran the wire from the loom under as per instructions then to the clutch switch pin, so do i then take another wire from the second clutch switch pin to the 12v? thats all i need to know.:confused::confused::confused:
thank you

This is mainly directed at Stampede but quoting Shaz's link.I had a look at the said link and it says it not viable to get it fitted a few times if the wiring's not present,just wondered why?Do you think he's looking at it as a cost thing or are they more prone to problems?

That was written a while ago. The reason it wasn't viable back then is simply because no-one had figured out how to do it and assumed that whole looms needed replacing etc. which would cost hundreds of pounds.

Having been told this couldn't be done to my 1.4, I decided to study the wiring diagrams and after a lot of work figured out how to identify and refit the necessary wiring. After being sucessful with that, I decided to offer it out to people.

So far, I think about 10 people have had their cars rewired to accept cruise control. I have had no complaints about reliability.

I'm one of the 10 & mine works like a dream.

If you do any kind of regular motoroway driving it's a must have mod IMHO.

I’m the only Zafiy petrol he has sorted without the switch etc (or probably will do :lol: )
