It is aftermarket, but Toyota approved aftermarket. Prior to 2009, it was the only dealer installed option for cruise control on a Yaris (even though all Yaris from 2006 on had the functionality built into the ECM). The Rostra cruise control was actually recalled in Canada because of susceptibility to radio transmissions.

I just noticed that the rostra wiring was plugged into the original APP a20 connecter so I unplugged it from the rostra wiring and plugged it into the peddle everything seems to work great now. lol damn that was just stupid.

thank you for all your help and suggestions I'm going to drive around now and see how it goes. I think I'm just going to remove all the rostra wiring etc. and maybe do your cruise control DIY when I get a chance. i'll look into that later this year.

Go visit your local dealer and take advantage of the recall. I think they uninstall the rostra and give you a hand full of money (since they do not consider there to be an alternative). Then, You can shoot me less than 1/4 of what they pay you for the Rostra and I'll shoot you the OEM cruise control kit.
