    Hey TacomaWorld
    This is my first post and before I get started some of you folks are brilliant! I love seeing all the DIY mods that you post they are awesome! I recently added intermittent wipers and cruise to my 09 5 speed. Everything went as smooth as silk, I just can't get the cruise to hold speed. Is clutch switch for a manual shift cruise the same switch that engages the starter when the pedal is depressed? Do I need a second clutch switch? I know someone out there has the answer. Thanks to all!

    I've figured it out and answered my own question and successfully installed cruise control!!! Anyone have a source for a rearview mirror with backup monitor? The lower the price the better! Thanks for the welcome too.:D

    Just a missing clutch switch, didn't realize that two switches were needed on the clutch pedal.

    You can purchase a kit from cruisecontrol.com they are complete and will make installation easier than ordering everything yourself. Be sure your getting the extra parts needed for your 5 speed manual. Good Luck.
    I'm so glad i added cruise to mine!:cool:
