DIY: 2006-2011 Yaris OEM Cruise Control Complete Installation

The 34 page PDF file below is a complete DIY for installing OEM Cruise Control on a 2006 to 2011 Yaris.

This will only work for US/Canda/Puerto Rico Yaris, as Yaris from all other areas lack the built-in ECM programming for Cruise Control. Vehicles from other areas must use an aftermarket cruise control system.


Any procedure that requires 34 pages of documentation may seem intimidating, but this installation is really not difficult. I tried to add as much detail as possible to clarify the parts where people who have installed cruise control have had questions.


This guide is broken up in to seven sections encompassing the following:

Section 1: OEM Cruise Control Stalk Installation.
Section 2: Steering Column Connector D3 Pin Installation
Section 3: ECM Connector A21 Pin Installation
Section 4: Connecting the ECM Pin to the Steering Column Pin Through the Firewall
Section 5: Cruise Control Clutch Switch Installation
Section 6: Optional Cruise Control Indicator Module Installation
Section 7: Verifying Operation

Hey Scott...tried replying to your message but it doesn't work. So here it is:

*How do I go about buying these parts from you? Are there additional parts to purchase (wires, connectors, etc.) on top of what you supply? Or is this a "turn key" kit?

Thanks again!

Charles

pennyracer: at minimum you just need

the single wire that plugs into the ECM ($~20, order by part number from a dealership),

~10 ft of thin wire,

and any switch of your liking (4-way ($15+shipping), push-buttons ($3-10)).

How much does cruise control at the dealership even cost to have put on?

The quotes that I have seen for Cruise installation by the dealer have been around $500. I am not sure if they are still doing so, but in the past for non-factory cruise control installation they always used the Rostra aftermarket system, rather than taking advantage of the ECM's built in functionality.

Do you still have one if these? Do you have the CC clutch switch?

Thank you.

Re: Cruise control

I got the oem cruise stalk, pins and clutch switch from Scott. The parts got here so fast that I didn't have a chance to read the cruise DIY carefully. BTW Scott is great to deal with and he always willing to help if you run into any issue.

Install took about 2 1/2 hours and half the time was spent fishing the wires through the firewall. I ended up cutting a piece of coat hanger in order to fish the clutch switch wire above the clutch pedal. I also removed the battery since I couldn't figure out where the wire would come out. Once the wires got through the firewall the rest of the install was pretty straight forward. I did have a bit of a problem getting one of the pins into the D3 connector. But once the pins are properly in place, I went out for a quick drive and the cruise works like a charm.

Thanks again Scott.

Joe

First I would just like to say I have just found this forum and am very excited to find all this info. Thank you to everyone who contributes.

Does anyone know if this cruise control addition will work on a 2013 Yaris right hand drive 1.3 automatic built for the Australian market? Only the base model (ours) doesn't have cruise control and we would love to add it.

We also have a 2006 but it is not drive by wire and we don't want an aftermarket kit so if I can put it on the 2013, that will be the one we take on longer drives.

I have shipped cruise control parts to Australia for installation on 3rd generation Yaris with the 1.5L engine. I am not sure about it working on the Australian 1.3L, although it does work for the European 1.33L Yaris.

Hi Scott

I have a 2013 998cc UK 'Edition' (base model) Yaris and would love to fit cruise, is it possible to fit the ECM based kit to my car and if so do you supply the complete kit Scott?

All the best.....

My understanding is that only the 1.33L 2012+ European Yaris supports cruise control. Do you know if cruise is offered as an option on any of the UK 998cc Yaris?
