Default Cruise Control Kits?

Hey guys, I drive the highway a lot so I thought I could put in cruise control. Anyone have any experience with this? It is an automatic 2001 Mazda B3000...

Thanks

Your truck may even be prewired for cruise

simple search with cruise control in the title of threads......

looked through a few looks like you should be able to find plenty of info there...


look for the "installing cruise control" or "how to" or "questions" thread to see good info. some for sale threads will probably also give you an idea of the parts you need like the pods, clock spring and servo.

Looking at your picture (if thats your truck in the picture) you have fog lamps and power mirrors. I'm 95% sure you are pre-wire since about 100% of the wiring harness I've seen for 98-2001 rangers that have these options have cruise control wiring.

Check for a 12 pin connector (Doesn't have that many wires but is setup for 12 pins) between your Blower motor and yoru washer fluid reservoir. It should have a cap on it that is secured to the passenger side fender area.

I dont have power windows/mirrors but I will check for the 12 pin connector. That would be awesome if it was prewired!
