I've linked all my old images in the other thread; if Leon feels like sticking them back in.
On my C34 it's easy...

Thanks Dale, I copied the power one across but couldn't find an old copy of your "earth under the M5 bolt' pic.

It should be self explanatory when people see it in the kit & read my instructions, but would've been better to see a picture I suppose.

Not that there's many people still to install them. Posted the last one today & hope to not think about these for a while =;

You spoke too soon mate...

I flew to Melbourne yesterday to pick up my 06 Autech Axis (3.5 RWD Auto), got it on the Spirit of Tasmania last night and finally got it home this morning... I planned to spend the day giving it a good detail but since that went so smoothly (I can see why it was rated 4.5 at the auctions) I decided to tackle some of the Cruise Control install...

I started in a different order to the instructions. I pulled the wheel off and fitted the sexy new buttons first, found an unused 4-pin connector under the drivers dash which had battery voltage when ignition on (not acc) and hooked up the CC power and button illumination to that. Fitted the brown twisted pair to the brake switch (which were a different colour to the instructions but easy to test and solder) then I slipped the blue wire behind the dash to pick up the VSS from the passenger footwell... This is where things took a turn for the worse... I removed the underdash panel from the passenger side, the 'hockey stick' trim and then the kick panel which revealed a gigantic empty space, it seems I don't have a TCM!? There is some sort of ECU mounted up high beside the blower motor (?) behind the glovebox but I assumed that is the ECM? I don't know if I am just so tired from my lack of sleep on the ship last night (maybe I am getting to old for the cruise seats) but I cant find a TCM on the passenger side at all?

I removed the shifter surround and ashtray hoping to get a look at where you guys with manual gearboxes pick it up from but couldn't find anything there either?? Mind you I couldn't get my stupid factory head unit out because I couldn't get my stupid aftermarket TV screen off either.

Any ideas lads?

I didn't take any photos today but I can do next time I tackle it.

Hope this all makes sense, believe me when I say I am exhausted!..

Hi Corey

You aren't going crazy. Your car has the TCU in the gearbox.

What you need to do is tap into the white/green wire under the dash, as per the attached pic.

This pic & words below courtesy of YEE-HAA (Frank) from SA.

The brown plug which is plugged into a white connector, behind the lower dash panel, left of the steering column, just next to the black a/c tube.
The black tube gets connected to the lower dash panel which intakes air for the air con.

This picture was taken while leaning into the car, and under the dash, with the heater in the background and also the a/c tube also in the left background.

Haha! That was confusing! Found the White/Green wire mentioned and got it soldered up. Took it for a spin and I can't get it to work though... When I press the cruise on/off button I get two quick beeps from the unit then the LED shows red. The use of any steering wheel controls also brings up a red light. The only way I can get the status LED to go green is by pressing the brake pedal but then as soon as I press any button on the wheel it goes red again... I tried reading the instructions that came with the unit (not yours Leon) but it seems a bit engrish..

Does any 'calibrating' need to be done before using?

Ok, Figured out how to get into the calibrating mode (haven't pressed the reset button or anything Leon). I done the accelerator calibrating fine but haven't tackled the rest (drive at 72kp/h etc etc) Did everyone else have to go through all this?

I have a trip down the highway to do tonight so ill try doing the rest while I'm out...

Ah, not one of mine. That makes a bit of sense now. My new bunch were pre-programmed to avoid the config confusion.

Yes, you will need to do the calibrating thing - accelerator pedal learn & then the VSS learn (go for a drive).

Sorry for the late reply but I have it all working now.. It was a simple calibration thing. Thanks everyone, especially Leon for making these up!

No kits as such but I can put you in touch with a guy who sells/installs the CC's & the steering wheel buttons are available from Nissan (part number should be in a thread on here).

I may still have enough bits to make up a harness to connect the 2 together easily. PM if you need anything/help.

Cheers, Leon.
