Default Retro fit of cruise Control to a 940.

Hi
I have a 1997 940 Celebration 2.3 LPT, how difficult would it be to install Cruise and what would I need in bits, also if I have an intermittent speedo (who doesn't?) would that affect the operation of cruise.
Cheers
Bob

The car is pre wired for cruise control. You need the column switch, vacuum pump, throttle reel, bellows, some tubing, pedal switches and the control box and fly lead.

As to whether the intermittent speedo will be an issue it depends. The cruise looks at the ECY speed sigmal. If there is a problem with the tone ring in the axle it won't work properly. It won't care if the speedo itself is faulty.

The speedometer in my 1994 944T was bad when I bought the car. The cruise control would not work. Installing a good speedometer made the cruise control work.

If there's any interest, I could post scans of the original cruise control fitting instructions.

Cheers
