1995 3.8 cruise control?

I added the cruise control buttons, servo, actuator, amplifier and dump valve to my 1995 v6 mustang from a parts car. I still don't have cruise. I was wondering if there was reprogram that I would need for this to work, or am i missing a part. Thanks for any help that you might have.

Unless I am mistaken this is controled by the computer and you would need a flash of your ecu, a chip, or a computer from a car with cruise control with your same engine code.

Wait till Justin00Stang responds however as I am sure he could tell you more.

Re: 1995 3.8 cruise control?

The 94-95 system is very different from the 96+ system, the older cars are all vacuum powered.

On my car I just had to install a steering wheel with buttons, plug in a motor, and one last thing was jumper a wire. On my car normally there are two brake pedal switches on cruise cars, as a precaution, in addition to the main brake light switch. I did not bother to add one so I just jumpered the plug for it.

Maybe there is something like that for 95s? I'm not sure. I think the dump valve is what takes care of that backup function.

Re: 1995 3.8 cruise control?

Yeah, there is a switch at the brake pedal that turns off the cruise when you step on the brakes. If jumpering that out makes it work then the switch is normally closed and only opens when you step on the brake.

I'd add the switch if it were me.
