Grand Am GT Cruise Control

I have a 2003 Grand Am Gt....the crusie control has broken that is mounted on the steering wheel. I have the part but seems that you need to get in behind the steering wheel to mount the new one. Does the face off the sterring wheel come off or how do I go about replacing the piece??? Any suggestions

    One suggestion, make DAMN sure you disarm the airbag by the book, if it goes off when you unbolt it and disconnect the wire harness it will really ruin your day.

The face of the steering wheel does come off. In the back of the steering wheel there should be two holes if you feel around for them. In those holes are screws that hold the face on, just undo those screws and the face should come off. After that DO MAKE SURE YOU UNPLUG THE AIRBAG. You don't want the going off in your face.

Pontiac g6 cruise control does not work 95% of time

The most common issue here is the rotating contact under the steering wheel called the "Clockspring" has an open printed circuit ribbon. To change this requires the Airbag and steering wheel be taken off. You must disarm the steering wheel mounted Airbag before work starts, failure to do this can kill you. Read and follow the service manual instructions to the letter.

Is there an aftermarket cruise control for an '04 F150? - Rather than replacing the pcm?

There is no need to replace the PCM, a dealer can reprogram the as built data to activate the Cruise control buttons that you add.

Ford dealers w/ online parts ordering get about 55 ( + Ship ) for the buttons ( MSRP is 109.60 ). They mount right in place of the blanks on the wheel ( for the CC only, the radio controls is a whole other story ).

The wiring should be in the wheel, I have seen XL 5 speed manual transmissions have the wiring in the wheel ( just needed the programming done ).

Item #6 is what you need to buy and install

If you are good with the mechanics of the work, should take about 45 min or so to mount the switches, and a trip to the dealer to change the as built data with the IDS ( WDS replacement ), and you are all set. Programming should take about 20 min, but they might charge for a full hour ( billing rules per dealer ).

I use Tasca and Southwest Ford for online parts ordering.
Trademotion path to the parts :
Collision Catalog
2006 ( I see you have a 04, same parts ) -> Ford -> F-150
Steering wheel -> Steering wheel and trim -> Cruise switch -> W/o radio controls.

1999 grand am g.t. cruise control doesn't work. appears no power at switch, light on switch doesn't come on. fuse seems ok? bb

is there an airbag light on?? if so then it sounds like your clockspring is broken.. this is a harness that connects the steering wheel switch and accessories to the car harness. this will need testing to see if it is no good.
