$700? ouch, though believable if you've got a 2004 Echo. The Yaris uses drive-by-wire so the cruise control is entirely computer controlled. With the Echo they'd need to install mechanical controls to maintain the throttle position.

Mine was just a hair over $500 for the third party Rostra cruise which I had removed in the fall when there was an optional recall.

I don't think this DIY will work for you. If you know what you're doing you could probably find the Rostra kit online far cheaper than the dealer wants but you'll be getting your hands dirty installing it.

No. Only USDM Yaris with the 1.5L engine have the cruise control functionality built into their ECM.

Is that with the OEM steering wheel cover (with the pre-cut hole?) That's specifically what I'm looking for.

Hi Teddy.. That is the OEM steering wheel cover, but I drilled the hole using the template.

Here's a picture of one with the OEM stalk hole.

Can someone please tell me what the functionality is of the single OEM wire/pin that plugs into the D3 connector on the steering column? I ask because I need to replace this connector but want to know what I'll be unhooking exactly, once removed.

Thanks.

The black wire is for the horn.

Ok so my steering wheel cover came in today. I followed all the steps, and kept saying to myself.. too good to be true... too good to be true....

Everything back together, start the car.. airbag light won't turn off... uh oh here we go, what did i break or do I need to run some wire to some pin...

Pop the airbag off again, and notice I hadn't pushed the yellow clips back in. Didn't figure that could be it, but put it back together and started it again. The light went off!!

Too good to be true... Too good to be true...

Test drive time, I notice the cruise indicator on the dash works, good sign. The damn cruise does everything its supposed to flawlessly.. for less than $100... and 30 minutes labor..

Makes no sense toyota doesn't offer this cruise..

Many thanks to Scott for this!

And in this case it's everything its claimed to be.


P.S. If anyone wants the stock steering wheel cover without hole cut, just cover shipping and its yours (note I am in Toronto Area).

Just completed the cruise on my 08' hatchback!

Hi everyone, first substantial post here!

Thanks to this awesome community, my 08' Hatchback now has cruise as well, just put the finishing touches on it this morning.

Please forgive the dirt, it's only just barely spring in St. John's, Newfoundland. Also, that mess that looks vaguely like a circuit is all tidy and covered in heat shrink now

For the switches, I used double throw momentary toggles which are off at the centered position. I know it doesn't look stock like some of the push button switches do, but I just have a thing for toggle switches.

I got them from Digikey if anyone's interested (450-1530-ND).

Finally finished installing all of mine and it works perfect!
I think it works better then the factory cc in my Tundra.

Have to give much thanks to CTScott for making the kit...selling the kit...and for being so patient with all my questions!

His brain must be super huge!!!!

DIY CC in European Yaris 2009

Hi everybody,

I own my small Yaris and like the car very much. The only minor thing I miss is the CC feature. Since the european models do not have support for CC built in ECU and I do not want to invest too much money in some aftermarket model, so I decided to build my own one.
The idea is very simple. I would like to use a microcontroller to periodically check all necessary input data (current speed, brake & clutch pedal positions, etc.) and then set the digital2analog converter to emulate the accelerator pedal movement by increasing / decreasing the output voltages on both lines to ECU as the speed of the vehicle is under / over set value.
I currently have an open question related to accelerator pedal connection. There are 6 wires for 2 separate Hall probes to detect the pedal position. Of each set, one wire is +5V, second one is GND and the third one is the output, where voltage changes according to accelerator pedal depression level. I would like to cut these two signal lines and put them as input to CC module and connect another two wires (output from CC) as input to ECU. So far so fine.
But my idea is, that during the time CC is switched off, the signal input and output are directly interconnected and when CC is enabled, the output is fed from DAC. I would like to use a relay controlled by microcontroller for this purpose (see fig.). but I am not sure, if it is a good idea. What is your opinion. Is there any better solution for this?
If I use the relay, will there be any problem with temporary loss of signal to ECU during relay switching (the actual switching time is approx. 5 ms)? Or shall I add some small capacitor between output & ground to smooth the glitches. But I have no idea what capacity to use in order not to influence the response time of accelerator pedal too much.
And finally, do you know about any place where can I get at least accelerator pedal connectors (male & female) or the whole accelerator interface harness from ?
I appreciate any ideas. Thanks
