cable (See FibYilreC).
STEP 2. Receiver Module Installation:
Remove existing Cruise Control Switch, if one exists. Refer tp Ifelpful Hint #2 to when disconnecting
4 pin connector.
Choose a location under the driver's side dash to mount the receiver module. This location should be
chosen such that interfacing to the existing cruise control harness does not cause stress on the wiring
harness. It is best to leave at least 2 inches of slack in the wiring harness once it is connected. Also, for
best performance, choose the location such that there is no significant metal (excluding wires) in the
line of sight to the steering wheel.
Mount the receiver module in the location chosen using either tie straps supplied, or the bracket
STEP 3. Mounting the Transmitter:
bracket installation note.
2 Slide the transmitter on to the mounting bracket. Firmly press the transmitter on the bracket until it locks into place. The bracket has automatic locking pins to secure the transmitter.
£The RF transmitter I~ a NORMALLY OPEN SWITCH. It is necessaryto adjust the programming switch
;;on the Cruise Control (where applicable) to the correct position. Refer to your Cruise Control
,Installation Instruction Page#7 for normally open switch.

~eory o Remote Controlled Switch Operation
The ROSTRA remote controlled cruise switch incorporates the same features and functions as contemporary cruise control switches plus a few enhancements.The primary functions; SET, COAST, TAP DOWN, RESUME, ACCEL, and TAP UP operate no different than any other cruise switch. However, the medium of communications from the switch to the cruise control is now Radio Frequency as opposed to wire. The benefits of the remote controlled switch are numerous and include; ability for
Electrical tests are perfonned on the 8 wires at the cruise control module. Using a Volt/Ohm meter, conduct the following fl'c;tswhere the wiring harness enters the cruise control module.

CAUTION: Be sure to road test your Cruise Control after installation. If your Cruise Control was installed correctly, it should perform as indicated in this section. The Cruise Control Switch is used to operate the system.
CAUTION: Do not use Cruise Control on slippery roads or in heavy traffic.
When conneetmg this system to the vehicle, ensure that you follow this instruction manual and connect only to spccifi~ wires. Failure to do this may causethe cruise control switch to work improperly, causeelectrical or engine failure. and may result in damageto the vehicle and/or injury to the occupants.We must depend on your skill and good judgment as you install this system.We urge you evef). step of the way to consider the safety of yourself, the
f owner of the vehicle, and thosewho ride in it.
