Hey-
I've installed a secondhand "port kit" cruise control unit on my truck (i.e. non toyota but plugs into toyota plugs on the truck) It's identified by a cruise stalk on the left of the steering wheel where a factory stalk would be on the right. Anyway, I have it all hooked up but can't get it to work, the green light on the stalk comes on but I can't seem to get it to hold speed. I have the vacuum feed line hooked to the right hand line (of the two going to the power steering pump looking from the front of the truck) Is that the right line? I believe the wiring is correct as per the installation manual but don't have the part that deals with the vacuum line. Can anyone shed some light on this for me? Thanks!

I never installed one but I had one on a '98 2wd ext cab I had a few years ago. Had a real problem with surging, very uncomfortable, could not use the cruise. Went to the dealer to ask questions, they seemed to know nothing about the unit. Gulf States Toyota installs a lot of these, they are all over the place down here in Houston. I was pissed in a major way that a dealer or distributor had installed something in my truck and could not fix it or stand behind it. I know Gulf States made lots of money installing these.

When I bought my 2000 about a month ago I was specifically looking for factory cruise (right side of the wheel). If you can't find any help on getting yours to work, I suggest start looking at the parts yards for the OEM components, you will be much happier with how it works. The FSM from the Toyota Tech info site has good descriptions and pictures of the factory system.

Good Luck

We sell some of those here in S.E.T. I had one not working properly on a 4x2 Taco and the problem was the wire that I spliced into the speed sensor wasn't getting a good connection. The cruise ECU couldn't read how fast I was going so it didn't work. I remember it was behind the glovebox but that's been many years ago.

Hey guys, I bought a "Toyota" cruise control kit to add to my truck when I first bought it, but haven't installed it yet. Mine came in a Toyota box, had Toyota instructions, but it does come with the left (wrong) side control stalk.

I'm hoping this isn't the same as what's been giving people problems. Also, I'm hoping to find a new steering column with tilt and the factory cruise control arm. It seems to me that I should be able to wire this "Toyota" kit to the factory stalk that is on the right (correct) side of the wheel. Anyone think it will/won't work?

I installed the Toyota one on my truck and it worked like a champ...no problems and it onlly took like 90 minutes to install...I've had it on for years with no issues...

There is a self test for it that will blink back a code that tells you what is wrong....

Here is the scan from my instructions...

ah, fuck, why can't you upload reasonably sized attachments?!?!?!??!?!

FUCK

Anyway, for my goddamn $25.00 we ought to be able to upload shit....

email for the two test docs...

I used an Audiovox system, and had this problem until I got the dip switches set properly. I called the company and they told me what to set them at. You said you have power, but does it get a speed signal? I would guess it is either the dip switch settings or no speed signal.
