I have a 2006 xterra manual 6 speed. It is just the base

This answer was rated:

I have a 2006 xterra manual 6 speed. It is just the base model. No power options. I would like to enable cruise control. I am told I can just buy the steering wheel controls and plug them in to enable cruise control. Is this true? Or does the base model not wired to support cruise control??
JA: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?
Customer: what?
JA: Are you fixing your Xterra yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I am just looking into the option of adding cruise control. I want to know if it is possible for my car.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: no

Hello, does your vehicle have abs?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I am not sure. How can I tell?

Do you have an ABS light that comes on for 2-5 seconds when you turn the ignition on?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I do

Ok, the cruise control is activated by the ecm. After you install the switch, the ECM may need a software upgrade, other than that you already have the components necessery for cruise control.

Ok great. I was able to locate the switch/part that I need. How do I get the ECM software upgraded if I need to?

ECM software will need to be upgraded by nissan dealer, you will need to call them with the vehicle's vin# ***** make sure they can do that for you. Not all dealers can do that.

Ok thanks.
