Welcome! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to assist you with this problem.
you need to buy a cruise lever assembly as seen in the link you sent and need to know if that's the correct one for your van ?
Yes, that is correct. I've only purchased a cruise control for a 1967 Dodge dart, magnets to the drive shaft etc. I'm sure you know the type, but they tell me that the one for my GMC Savanna is a whole different ball game, and by the looks of the cost, and all the different models and kits, it would be easy to make a mistake. That is why I sent the Vin # XXXXX hope you could tell me the correct one. Cost is not an object, but quality and being right is.
yes that is the correct switch for your van
Is this easy or difficult to install. By the way, I'm very happy with this chat, as I have been looking at that particular switch over and over again, but was just not sure, so I truly appreciate your approval of the purchase.
Gary its a matter of removing the steering wheel and then the upper and lower plastic upper column covers to change it
Disable the SIR system. Refer to SIR Disabling and Enabling Zone 3 in SIR.
If necessary, remove 1 TORX� head screw (1) from the upper trim cover (2).If a screw is not present, remove the upper trim cover (2).
I just screwed up and deleted the url I sent you for that part. Would you please send it to me. I can not find it in our chat. And can I keep this information you have sent me?
Ok, now looking at it I do not see any kind of a kit. I hope you understand, I am not replacing a switch, but installing a whole system. does what you are telling me mean that the system exists, but they put in a switch, in the current vehicle at manufacture, without connecting it to the cruise control system already in the vehicle?
ok this does not have cruise and you want to add cruise to it ?
I would have shop do this for you that does these kinds of changes as the computer will need to be reprogramed to tell it to operate with cruise control and the switch added and a few other things
Can I save anything by buying the handle and the whole kit, and then having a shop install it?
I would call around to any local shops that do these kind of installs and get a price with them doing it all or you putting in the switch assembly and bringing it to them
see what they recommend Gary
ok, well it looks like you just saved me a couple of hundred dollars if I had gone ahead and purchased the unit on line. I got a feeling though that the mark up at a shop is going to be considerable.
So I guess, I'll end with just my original question. Please tell me what kit you would recommend me to purchase, as the one I asked about seems to be only the handle.
lets get another opinion from another expert here on this
hang on another expert will replay back to you
I don't do much aftermarket or add ons
ok, I can wait thanks
