cruise control
« on: November 20, 2015, 05:40:05 pm »
93 D350 with a Three spoke steering wheel. Switches are no good and not able to locate new or even good used switches dodge pn 56006422 or standard on caa-1038. I seen somewhere that some one had made their own using after market parts and home made steering wheel brackets. If some has a list and instructions I would be most thankful. Any help out there...

junk yards are your friend. more than likely it's the clock spring not the buttons.

if you have access to a mt2500 or the like it can help you diagnose the issue.

I just ruined a clock spring I had been meaning to remove from my trail truck. was not happy about that

I have power to the switches and nothing out. Replaced the bad last summer for a speed issue so I don't think it is that. 25 inches of vacuum at the servo so is not that. Shows no power at the pcm pin 49 with ignition on and cruise switch on. Check power at switch connector in steering wheel and have power which tells me that the flickering is still good and leads me to the switches being bad. I tested the switches with a multimeter as per the fsm and they do not pass. All of the above leads me to the switches them selves as the culprit. Got any other suggestions. I am fairly well mechanically inclined so ain't scared of almost anything with tools as long as I have some kind of direction to go.

you ever find a set of switches?

I need to look through my stuff and see if I have a spare set.

If nothing else I could probably let go of the set on my trail truck... its clock spring is busted and most of the other cruise stuff already removed.

Don't need cruse to do the trails... though that would be cool to modify it and  have cruise at 5mph to crawl up a hill.

But I think thats getting to the extreme side of lazy there.  :laughing7:

if you need to you can do this. i pretty much did this with mine except used another cruise control switch off an older vehicle that does the exact same thing.

I ended up going to radio shack and buying switches an d building brackets and installing in the stock location on the steering wheel. Even went so far as adding an led on them to indicate if the system power was turned on. Works like a champ. Not as pretty as the oem but they work as good and has more functions than the stock ones.

i almost thought about building a switch panel and mounting it somewhere since my vehicle didn't come from the factory with cruise. once you understand how the switches work the rest is simple.
