Dave,
I had found that earlier in my searches as well.
1st off, my Cruise is on the Stalk on the left side of the Steering Wheel, but I tried it anyway. Does not work.


then I saw a note it is only on the 2008 year model trucks?


I see in your note it says the "parking brake must be applied". that note was not in my link, I will go try it again to see if that works for me.


I've already ordered up the Vernier Cable you gave me the link for, so if the CC system won't work for me, the cable darn sure will.


One ?? though, won't I have to provide a "Square box coupler" over the CC linkage pivot? seems that I remember the truck I used to drive had a rectangular "box" built around the CC pivot so that the cable does not interfere with the throttle/CC functions.

You will have to make some kind of slip joint so the cable won't interfere.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

I was in garage this afternoon but couldn't find that cable, not sure if I let someone else take it or if 1 of my brothers grabbed it. I don't remember getting it down but could not locate it, sorry.

Using a beaded chain as you coupler might help remove CC interference.

I'd be a +1 for mounting an electric fan to assist cooling. switch it on when needed.
It's very difficult to increase the idle "just a bit" and not have it start to increase more than wished for. try and hold your foot on gas pedal and maintain 1100 without variance to test sensitivity.


the cruise trick was only on diesels, btw

it does not need an electric fan. the fan it has roars like a Freight Train when the thermo-coupler engages it... and the air coming out behind it is very strong.


Twice, I got it too hot, gauge up almost at the Red Line.
Once I left it idling too long keeping the dogs cool: raised idle speed to 1500 and the fan started roaring and the temp gauge dropped in about 1 minute, in about 3 minutes it was down to normal again.


2nd time, I got to pushing it too hard, pushing 68 mph instead of 55 mph, against a headwind. Temp redlined and when I saw it, turned off the a/c and dropped the speed back to 50 mph.... in 2 minutes flat the gauge was back to normal.



Chain Beads: Now that is a Damn Good idea!


as for the idle speed, I can slowly press on the throttle and the RPMs will follow very good.


I can hold 1500 RPM constantly and it does not try to hunt.
have a lot of confidence the vernier cable is just the thing I need.


and that beaded chain? problem solved.

The vernier cable arrived a few minutes ago.


Looks like a premium product to me.




Wind it out to increase speed gently....


Push the big Red Button and snap! it goes back to low idle.
