MANUAL PREPARED AND PROVIDED BY LITEON AUTOMOTIVE CORPORATION
HOW THE CRUISE WORKS
The Cruise Module makes "decisions" based upon speed,tachometer, and brake signal information. The control
circuit interprets digital speed information from the car's engine control module (VSS) or Magnet Kit and ignition
coil output. Brake information comes from the red and purple wires connected to the vehicle's brake switch.
Disengagement and no-engagement decisions are based on the monitored information.
An integral part of the cruise is the 'over rev.' protection circuit. It's function is to monitor engine R.P.M. and
disengage the cruise control when the clutch is applied or the transmission shift lever is moved in to neutral.
When a sudden rise in R.P.M. is detected, the decision to disengage is made for 'over rev' protection, the blue
wire must be attached to the negative side of the ignition coil. A noise suppressor 'in series' with the blue wire
keeps excessive electrical noise from "fooling" the cruise into disengaging. For this reason make sure all cruise
control wiring is at least 1 ft. away from all electromagnetic sources such as: ignition wires, alternator, regulator,
and all high current carrying conductors.
NOTE : If your vehicle is not listed in the enclosed reference manual, the Magnet Kit must be utilized.
Additional available options: CCS-202 Vacuum Reservoir and CCS-204 Ford adaptor.
WARNING : WHEN TESTING WIRES, USE ONLY A LOGIC PROBE OR VOLT / OHM
METER. DO NOT USE A TEST LIGHT, AS THESE CAN CAUSE DAMAGE
TO THE ECM OR MAY ACTIVATE THE AIRBAG!
WARNING : DO NOT ATTEMPT TO ROAD TEST ON JACK STANDS OR A LIFT !
CAUTION : BEFORE DRILLING ANY HOLES, BE SURE THAT NO COMPONENTS
WILL BE DAMAGED AFTER THE DRILL PENETRATES THE SURFACE.
CAUTION : DO NOT MOUNT OR ROUTE WIRING HARNESSES OR KIT COMPONENTS
ON OR NEAR ANY HOT, SHARP, OR MOVING SURFACES WITHIN THE
VEHICLE.
NOTE : IF YOU DO NOT FEEL CONFIDENT THAT YOU CAN SAFELY INSTALL THE
CRUISE CONTROL BY YOURSELF, THEN WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU
HAVE IT INSTALLED BY A QUALIFIED PROFESSIONAL.

PROGRAMMING THE SERVO ASSEMBLY
To ensure that the cruise control operates smoothly and safely in your vehicle, the servo assembly must be
programmed. In order to properly program the servo assembly, you will need to know the number of cylinders,
the type of transmission (manual or automatic), if your vehicle is equipped with a Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS),
and if so, the number of Pulses Per Mile ( PPM ), also if the cruise control switch is the open or closed circuit
style. The dash mount control switch supplied is the open circuit style switch. SW6 should be set to OFF.
Refer to the enclosed reference manual for information of VSS and PPM that applies to your vehicle. If there
is no VSS signal in your particular vehicle then the Magnet Kit must be used. Mount one magnet to the drive
shaft if the vehicle is rear wheel drive and set PPM to 2000. Mount 2 magnets to the drive shaft at 180° apart
if the vehicle is front wheel drive and set PPM to 2000. Note: When using magnets set Dip Switch #3 to "ON".
The sensitivity settings, control the amount of vacuum needed to keep the set speed constant. Remove the
( 2 ) screws securing the plastic cover on the back of the servo assembly to gain access to the dip switches.

Connecting the Cruise Control Cable to the Throttle
NOTE: Prior to attaching servo cable to throttle, locate an accessible area to mount the cruise control servo,
but do not mount it. Leave the servo in this area (unmounted) and route cable to throttle attachment area.
CAUTION: Attach the cruise control cable so that it parallels the existing throttle cable as nearly as possible.
Choose a mounting method from the figures below:
FIG. 1
Bead Chain
Coupling Sleeve (#23)
The bead chain and servo cable end must be
inserted into the bead chain connector. Then the
bead chain coupling sleeve must slide over
bead chain connector to insure that the end will

Bead Chain Coupling (#24)
Determine a suitable point on the throttle linkage to mount the cable connector. The mounting point chosen should have between
1-1/2" to 2" total linkage travel. It must operate smoothly by hand. There should be at least 5 beads between the throttle connector and
servo cable end. The cable must pull in a straight line from throttle linkage. Some vehicles that do not have enough total linkage travel
have to be connected at the accelerator pedal.

CAUTION ! ATTACH THE CRUISE CONTROL CABLE SO THAT IT PARALLELS THE EXISTING THROTTLE CABLE AS
NEARLY AS POSSIBLE.
WARNING ! AFTER ATTACHING THE CRUISE CONTROL CABLE TO THE VEHICLE’S THROTTLE, OPERATE THE
THROTTLE MANUALLY ( FULL TRAVEL ) FROM BOTH UNDER HOOD AND ACCELERATOR PEDAL TO BE
ABSOLUTELY SURE THAT NONE OF THE CABLE ATTACHMENT COMPONENTS OR BEAD CHAIN CAN
RESTRICT OR INTERFERE WITH THE NORMAL THROTTLE OPERATION.
Mounting the Servo Assembly
1. Plug the 10 pin connector from the main harness into the mating connector on the servo assembly, arrange
the wires so that they do not cross over one another, and replace the plastic cover with the ( 2 ) screws
previously removed.
2. A) When selecting the location for the servo, make sure that the cable routing follows a smooth path, with
no sharp bends. You must also be sure that the cable is routed away from any hot, sharp, or moving
components within the engine compartment.
B) This unit has rapid response valves inside the servo which constantly operate during cruise operation.
To prevent noise transferring to inside the passenger compartment we strongly recommend this unit NOT
be mounted to the fire wall.
3. Using ( 2 ) of the M6 x 3/4" long hex washer head sheet metal screws, mount the servo to the selected location.
Do Not mount servo on the engine !
4. Attach the eyelet terminal on the end of the Black wire to a solid chassis ground bolt within the engine
compartment.
Connecting the Vacuum Hose
1. Plug the vacuum hose onto the servo assembly.
2. Route the vacuum hose to an existing vacuum hose that has constant vacuum while the engine is running
at idle, trim the hose to length, and make the attachment using the appropriate size T connector from the
kit.
See Diagrams below for common vacuum source connection.

Vacuum Test
Look for the vacuum hose coming directly from the intake manifold.
Run the engine at idle, and place your finger over the selected vacuum source. You should feel a strong suction
on your finger. Remove your finger and a noticeable change in engine RPM or engine smoothness should
result. Note: This vacuum source must maintain at least a minimum of 6 inches of mercury vacuum. If the
vacuum is lower than 6 inches while the pedal is depressed, then a vacuum canister must be used.

Routing the Main Wiring Harness
1. Locate your vehicle by make, model, and engine size in the included Reference Manual in order to identify the
location of the VSS and Tach connection locations. If your make and model cannot be located, then the Magnet
Kit must be installed. Follow the installation instructions included in this manual.
In all cases, you will need to route the Brown, Green , Purple, Yellow, and Red wires through the bulkhead
to the passenger compartment of the vehicle.
The Blue wire will need to be routed to the tach location, and the Grey & Black twin lead will need to be routed
to the VSS or magnet speed sensor location. If either of these locations are in the passenger compartment,
they will need to be routed with the Brown, Green , Purple, Yellow, and Red wires.
2. Route the wires that will pass through the bulkhead away from any hot or moving components within the
engine compartment, and be sure that they are routed to a point lower than the grommet that will be used
for entrance into the passenger compartment. This will prevent water from running along the wires and into
the passenger compartment.
NOTE : FOR EASE OF INSTALLATION, YOU SHOULD USE AN EXISTING RUBBER GROMMET WHEN
PASSING WIRES THROUGH THE BULKHEAD.IF AN EXISTING GROMMET IS NOT AVAILABLE,
CAREFULLY DRILL A 1/2" WIRE ENTRANCE HOLE IN THE BULKHEAD, AND USE THE RUBBER
GROMMET SUPPLIED IN THE KIT.

1. Choose a flat location on the dashboard that is visible while driving. The location should be very accessible
to the driver, allowing easy activation of the switch while operating the cruise control. A template has been
provided to confirm that there is adequate space for mounting the switch in the selected location. (Fig.1)
2. After the location is selected, check the area behind the panel to be sure that the wires can be routed to the
cruise control harness connector. You should also make sure that the drill will not damage any components
or wiring behind the panel, and it is always best to remove the panel before drilling.
3. Drill (2) 1/4" diameter holes in the location marked on the template. After drilling, use a file or razor knife
to remove the dash material between the (2) holes.
4. Clean the area of the dashboard where the switch will be mounted, and allow any cleaning fluids to dry
completely.
5. Pass the wires from the switch through the hole in the panel, remove the paper lining from the mounting pad
on the back of the switch, properly align the switch, and firmly press in place on the panel. (Fig.2)
6. Route the 6 wires from the switch to the control switch connector from the cruise control main wiring harness.
Be sure to avoid any sharp or moving surfaces when routing wires, and secure the wires along their path
using tie straps.
7. Plug the terminated ends of the Red, Brown, Green and Yellow wires into the color coded locations on the
connector. Be sure that the terminals click, and are fully seated in the connector. (Fig.3)
8. Plug the switch connector into the mating connector on the main cruise control harness.
9. Connect the Black wire from the switch to a known chassis ground source.
10. Connect the Grey wire from the switch to the parking light wire in the vehicle. When probed, the parking
light wire will read +12 VDC when the parking lights are on, and 0 VDC when the parking lights are off.
The Grey wire controls the backlighting of the switch, and the switch will not illuminate if the Grey wire is left
disconnected. You must connect all other wires from the switch, or the cruise control will not operate.

ROAD TESTING THE CRUISE CONTROL
Be sure to fully test all functions of your new cruise control on a level surface away from predestrian and vehicle
traffic. While travelling 35 M.P.H. turn switch on , then press Set button. Unit will engage when Set button is
released. To disengage, tap on brake or turn switch off - cruise will disengage. Follow same procedure at 45
M.P.H. and at 55 M.P.H. If unit is inoperative, open cover on cruise and look at the L.E.D. Press Set button,
L.E.D. should light. Press Resume button, L.E.D. should light.Step on the brake, L.E.D. should light. If L.E.D.
does not light then check wiring. If the vehicle’s speed drops considerably when travelling up hills, you may
need the optional vacuum booster canister. Call 1 - 800 - 225 - 6074 for additional assistance.
ON / OFF : Move the ON / OFF switch to the ON position. Nothing will happen, as this simply prepares the
system for operation.
Each time the ignition switch or the cruise control switch is turned OFF, the system is de - energized. To reenergize the system, the ignition switch must be turned on, and the cruise control switch must be moved to
the ON position. The cruise control switch can be left On at all times without causing any damage to the system.
SET SPEED : After turning the system On, wait at least 3 seconds before attempting to set your speed. To
operate the system, drive the car at a steady speed above 35 M.P.H.
Press the SET / COAST switch and release it, then slowly remove your foot from the accelerator pedal. Your
SET SPEED is now programmed into the cruise control’s memory, and your driving speed should remain within
2 M.P.H. of your set speed.
If you want to increase your speed, simply press on the accelerator pedal. When you release the pedal, you
will return to your original SET SPEED.
ACCEL : You can increase your SET SPEED using the RESUME / ACCEL feature. Your vehicle will accelerate
as you hold this switch to the RESUME / ACCEL position. When you release the switch, your SET SPEED will
be re - programmed to the present speed of the vehicle.
TAP UP : You can also increase your SET SPEED gradually by quickly pressing and releasing the RESUME/
ACCEL switch. Each time you press and release the switch, your speed will increase by approximately 1/2
M.P.H.
TAP DOWN : You can also decrease your SET SPEED gradually by quickly pressing and releasing the SET/
COAST switch. Each time you press and release the switch, your speed will decrease by approximately
1/2 M.P.H.
COAST : To reduce your SET SPEED, press and hold the SET / COAST button. This erases the previously
programmed SET SPEED, and allows the vehicle to coast. Just before slowing to the speed you want, release
the button. Your present speed will be re - programmed as the new SET SPEED, providing the vehicle is
traveling faster than 35 M.P.H.
RESUME : Whenever you use the brake pedal to slow or stop the vehicle, the cruise control will disengage
but retain the programmed SET SPEED. To return to the SET SPEED, accelerate to a speed above 35 M.P.H.,
then press and release the RESUME / ACCEL switch. The vehicle will automatically accelerate to the
programmed SET SPEED, and hold that speed.
When using the RESUME feature with standard transmission, you should be in the correct gear for your SET
SPEED.
DISENGAGE : You can disengage from the SET SPEED in two or three ways, depending on the type of
transmission ( manual or automatic ) in the vehicle.
- Gently tap the brake pedal to activate the brake lights.
- Turn the control switch to the OFF position.
- For manual transmissions, depress the clutch. This will cause the engine to rev slightly before disengaging.

MAGNET AND SPEED SENSOR COIL INSTALLATION
The magnets, along with the speed sensor coil provide pulses to calculate road speed for the cruise control.
When the drive shaft rotates, the magnets attached to it move by the speed sensor coil. This generates electrical
pulses which are monitored by the cruise control.
This installation will require access to the vehicles drive shaft/axle. The drive wheel end of the vehicle will need
to be lifted-up and supported with jack stands. IF YOU CANNOT SAFELY INSTALL THE MAGNET AND
SPEED SENSOR COIL YOURSELF, THEN WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU HAVE IT INSTALLED BY A
QUALIFIED PROFESSIONAL.
MAGNET LOCATION:
Rear wheel drive vehicles: Magnet location is not to exceed 12 inches (30 cm) from the front (transmission end)
universal joint, or damage may result from the lateral movement of the drive shaft. See Figure 1.
Front wheel drive vehicles: Select either the right or left axle shaft near the transmission housing. Select the
side with the best accessibility, and insure there is adequate clearance for the mounting magnets and speed
sensor coil. See Figures 6 or 7.
NOTICE: It is important to keep the magnets as close to the transmission's housing as possible. Leave
adequate clearance from the catalytic converter and exhaust pipes.
Step 1: Clean the magnet mounting location. Use coarse sandpaper or a wire brush to clean the axle surface.
Complete by wiping with cleaning solvent.
Step 2: Rear wheel drive vehicles require one magnet to be secured to the drive shaft.
Front wheel drive vehicles require two magnets to be secured to the drive axle.
Step 3: Cut a 2" strip of paper approximately 11" long. Wrap this strip around the drive shaft and mark paper
as shown in Figure 2. This will give you the total distance around the drive shaft (circumference). Cut the strip
at this mark.
Step 4: Measure length of the strip and divide this number by the number of magnets (per Step 2) your vehicle
requires. Mark these locations on the strip. These are the center lines for the magnets.
Step 5: Tape the strip around the drive shaft at the location chosen for the magnets. Remove backing paper
from double sided foam and press onto the magnet. Remove remaining strip of backing paper and place the
magnet or magnets on the cleaned drive shaft/axle, not the paper. Be sure magnet tabs are lengthwise on the
shaft. See Figures 4 or 9. Then remove the paper strip.
-12-
Step 6: While rotating the shaft, carefully snap one wire into one set of magnet slots. Loosely wrap the wire
to hold it in place. Snap the second wire into the remaining slots making sure the ends are nearly opposite
the first wire, as shown in Figure 4 or 11.
Step 7: Carefully pull wires tight, and twist with a pair of pliers, pulling down as you twist to avoid breaking
the wire. Now take the loose ends and wrap through the opposite wire, and twisting as above to remove any
excess slack, see Figure 4. This procedure will secure the magnets onto the drive shaft. The double-faced
tape is used to temporarily hold the magnets until the wire is attached.
Step 8: Spin the drive shaft by hand and check to ensure proper clearance. Remember that the drive shaft
position will change with the suspension. See Figures 3 or 8.
SPEED SENSOR COIL INSTALLATION
Step 9: Assemble the speed sensor coil and bracket with nut and lock washer. Use of mounting bracket will
be determined by the specific installation. Refer to Figures 5 or 10. In some cases installation may be easier
if the bracket is bent or cut to a specific shape.
Step 10: Determining the location for the speed sensor/bracket assembly: The speed sensor coil must be
pointing directly at the centerline of the shaft leaving a 3/8" (10 mm) clearance between the speed sensor coil
and the magnets. See Figures 8.
CAUTION: Before drilling any holes, make sure there are no parts which may be damaged on the other side
of the metal. Double check for any wiring harness which might be easily damaged by the drill bit.
Step 11: Use the bracket as a template to mark and center punch two hole locations. Drill two 3/16" diameter
holes. Mount the speed sensor/bracket assembly using two 1/4" x 3/4" sheet metal screws. Be sure bracket
is mounted securely so it will not vibrate during vehicle movement.
NOTICE: If the speed sensor coil is closer than 1/4", there is a possibility that the magnets will strike the coil.
If the coil is more than 1/2" from the magnets, the cruise control may not function properly.
NOTE: Make sure the black and gray wires are routed clear of any hot or moving parts as well, away from
electrical items such as spark plug wires or ignition systems. Interference from these sources could cause
the cruise control to surge.
WIRING:
Step 12: Route the black and gray paired wires to the speed sensor coil and attach to the terminals. (It does
not matter which way the wires are attached, i.e.polarity).
NOTE: This magnet kit cannot be used on Honda vehicles.
