Cruise Control Hack


Recommended Posts

I am looking for a "partner" to brainstorm on how to do the cruise control hack on a 996.

I think I have got all the spare parts needed for the OBC and cruise control hack, but is still missing a lot of informations about wiring and location on different circuits.

If someone with a workshop manual and a 996 :D would be interested it would be great. :help:

It has already been done on a Boxster by ED, so it should be possible to do also on a 996.

Thanks for any reply :clapping:

:drive:

Hey Loren.

No problem here it is.

I am in contact with Ed now, to sort some things out.

Often "I hit the wall" because I don´t have any workshop manual :( Missing some wiring diagrams and location of different circuits.

Will keep you all updated on the project :)

I traced Ed's work as it pertains to a Carrera and the wiring specified in Ed's post are the same for a MY2001 996. You should be able to use Ed's instructions as they are. The only difference will be that you will be running the 3 wires to the DME under the center console carpet to the rear of the car. Here is how you get to the DME.

Is it the same location for a 996 Cab MY2001 ?

On my wiring diagram there is a switch called "clutch switch cruise control"

ED don´t see to mention anything about that in his hack.

That switch goes up to Connector IV pin 23. It looks to be a switch that disengage the cruise control if you press the clutch pedal down.

In the US we have 2 switches on the clutch pedal. One for the starter interlock and the other for cruise control. For some reason even if our cars do not have cruise control the switch on the clutch for it is there. Get a flashlight and see if you have a switch. I doubt if you have the starter interlock switch as that is a North America 'safety' thing.
