    Hi,
    Thinking to install cruise control in k20a6 manual. Anyone has done it?
    Would be using original honda parts, but as mine is LHD and many cars for parting are RHD, would like to know if anyone knows are these parts different from LHD to RHD. Ok, the use different denso codes, but if we look at wire actuator, for me it is the same part just bracket is for other side of engine bay and for same reason cable is shorter. Also wire actuator looks the same in 6th Generation, cable is longer one too. Same 4 connections to wire actuator.
    Steering wheel switches I have bought already. Same thing about cruise controller (small black box controlling wire actuator). Could they be different if they are controlling identical engine? More like question of using RHD cruise parts in LHD car?

    Hmm not come across anyone who's done this on a 7th Generation Accord.

    Do you have list of parts that you think you need ?

    I think I have:
    1. Steering wheel switches (already bought as mentioned)
    2. Cruise control unit 36700-SEA-E01
    3. Wire actuator 100300-1430(Denso RHD), 100300-1480 (LHD)
    4. Brake and clutch switches, must have one addition signal wire for cruise control unit.
    5. Throttle body, or butterfly to support two cables, if possible to install on non cruise throttle.
    6. Wiring, or cut connectors, rest could be made.
    7. Maybe missing something?

    Optional - cluster with cruise light, maybe can modify stock one if you really need to see that cruise switch is pressed down.

    I plan to install auto cruise too on my CL9 Auto transmission.
    Anyone can share your precious experience ?

    I am guessing that since this thread was never replied to further, it wasn't possible or the OP didn't document it.
    I guess it also depends if the car has additional wiring harness' to support cruise. While my own car has it as standard, I am wandering if Honda took a leaf out of General Motors book and made it so that additional features like cruise etc could simply be plugged in and work. However that is all I could possibly offer, other than to check to see if you have an additional wire, taped up somewhere, where a cruise control box would locate.

    I done it on a vauxhall not long ago because the accelerator was electric but with Honda, there is more work on it. The TB is cable operated.
    This was asked a few times on this forum for different vehicles models.
    Can't see anyone whos actually done it.
    If you search for it, you should be able to find it.

    I put cruise in the Stepwgn but is an electronic throttle on it. Very simple setup plug into brake connector, plug into accelerator pedal, a ground and branch off the speed sensor wire (Pivot 3 drive). I did put cruse on a Pontiac at one time with a Rostra kit, it was a bit more involved making brackets and so on.

    In terms of putting an OEM setup on I wish I could be of more assistance but never done it.

    In digging in mine at least some of the wiring is there, clock spring has extra wires for example but huge chunks of the OEM cruise wiring is missing. On my model OEM was an early version of the adaptive cruise control so it would have a lot of extra bits and pieces.

    If you've got a cable throttle then it's going to be very difficult indeed.
