3) did you just remove the speedo cable from the old cruise module and fold it up into the back of the gauge cluster?
4) did you mount an LED/bulb showing the cruise indicator?
Can we sticky this thread?
1) This module was from a 96 roadmaster, you probably will not find new or reman ones.
Good donors would be GM TBI cars & trucks or LT1 Caprices, Camaros, Roadmasters. AFAIK the modules are very similar.
2) I wound up using a Roadmaster switch but the stock switch would have worked. Mine was bad, new one on ebay was $13, just did not want to cut up new part.
3) On later model SJs the vss is an inline unit between two cables.
4) I have not added an indicator bulb yet but easily added.
I can sticky in tech archives...
The important parts to grab from donors.
Module & enough wiring.
Cable bracket to fab up a way to mount the cable.
2nd brake switch (Could use a relay off exiting brake switch to reverse polarity to module) if no provision in current pedal assembly?
This system requires a 4k vss signal.
So need a stock Jeep 8k vss AND a GM vssb 4-out module.
Or an aftermarket 4k vss.
So to elaborate on switch...
Couldn't find the matching connector for this
So used what I had and cut/soldered these connectors in and new $13 switch will get returned.
This is the later model Jeep vss, I am pretty sure they started using the newer system in 1982.
