Aftermarket Cruise Control Switches – Ford Transit MK7

I saw a van today for cruise activation that had the aftermarket switches fitted, which is possible by cutting out a section of the steering wheel rubberised lower section. The cruise didn’t work after activation. Customer said he had to cut away part of the plug & was then faced with 2 choices on how to plug in the connector. Had no time to check the work beyond measuring the resistance of the switch circuit. It measured 2.1Megohms, thats about 2 million Ohms more than what it should be. Pressing the various cruise buttons had no effect. I’ll update the blog if the customer get’s to the bottom of it, but for now , the previous advice still applies – get yourself a Transit wheel with buttons from a high spec transit , or choose one from a CMAX MK1 ( 2003-2007). Try Breakerlink.com if ebay yields no result on your search. & stop looking for Focus MK2 wheels, as most are incompatible, which is annoying as they look 10 times better.

  1. Update – It’s working, the main cruise buttons wiring to squib connector wasn’t pushed fully in! Also the kit fitted was genuine ford , the aftermarlet ones dont seem to have the connector plug at all.
