    Anyone know how to mod cruise to work under 25 mph and default on when ignition is turned?

    i don't know how to do that sort of stuff, but there is a reason they don't come that way from the factory, fwiw.

    So you want the truck to instantly speed up when you turn it on?

    I can see, sort of, the utility of cruise at under 25. Maybe you have a long commute on a deserted road with road construction...

    I can't imagine any reason why you want it to default "on" when you turn the vehicle on. My finger has to move about, what, three inches to hit the on button? Is there a purpose I'm not seeing here?

    That, and it would instantly turn off the moment you hit the breaks coming out of the driveway anyway.

    Edit: Actually, most people start the truck with their foot on the break, so it would likely turn off the moment you started the engine..

    I live in a rural area and cruise dirt roads at 5-20 mph. I would like it to default on as Honda's do, you just hit speed set and your done.

    I to find it annoying that we have to turn cruise on everytime we start the truck. We also have a Honda were the cruise stays on and I just hit the set at whatever speed I want ( not sure what the minimum is).
    I always hit set in my Tacoma, then realize the cruise is not on.

    There is one way to do this. The VSS signal goes to the ecu, speedo and the cruise control module. If you get a VSS adapter and splice it between the signal going to the CCM you can trick the CCM to thinking you are going faster than you are. The CCM just looks at the signal pulse frequency. The faster you go, the higher the freq so if you turn up the freq a bit the CCM will think you are above 25MPH and turn on.

    I mean are we really getting so lazy that we cant take 1/2 a second to push the big button on the side of the cruise lever to turn it on? You have to move that lever down anyways to set it...So your hand is going to be RIGHT THERE anyways...

    Come on guys.

    Why? Why not? If it's a mod he wants to do more power to him. I can say that don't see a point in having to turn on and then set cruise control.


    Good luck OP! I hope you get the info you are looking for.

    No. Im still not over it, I still want to get my cruise control to work under 25 mph. I still want it to be on like Honda does theirs. Still searching.
