    VERY Happy Man!!

    Just got back from Vauxhall with a huge smile on my face....

    All started the other week when i read a post in the elec section about someone retro fitting cruise control to his ECO4, after reading through the thread i decided to give it a go and see if i could get it too.

    Few pm's to SQ Man soon had me the wiring diagrams, went to the main scrappy round here to look through about 15 astras for the parts needed, finally located a 51 reg that had the loom I needed so while taking bits apart to get to the wires and talking to SQ Man on the phone some nugget who worked there got in some big CAT Digger thing about 5 meters away from and picked up a written off cement mixer by the front cab and started to move it closer to me, I dropped everything I was doing and made a run for it as the guy obv didnt see me! Nigel thought it was funny hearing me scream like a girl and after my heart stopped racing I went back for the bits.

    Next ran 4 wires from the stalk connector and clutch switch to the ECU and I had the wires already in place so all I had to do was piggy back in to that, fit the stalk which I borrowed from my gfs car and went to see a mate at VXL today, told him what iv done and he was like it mite work, come back in an hour and ill see what I can do on tech2, went back and he said it said successful and tested each wire through tech2 and said all seemed ok, got out the car park about 19mph hit the button and it worked!!!!

    This has got to be my best mod so far as iv wanted C.C for 3 years but never thought it was possible so been all over on way home and cant stop smiling!!

    it actually works at about 16mph lol

    same as it does on my gfs cab which we fitted the stalks to with wiring present, sure tech2 could change the min speed, lower the better i would of said, about 16mph is about ideal
