I am perfectly content to push the CANCEL button on the steering wheel to engage the exhaust brake when occasionally needed and RES to resume cruise control.

Nick, Is it possible to e-mail another copy of that schematic. My e-mail is:wmschnieber@earthlink.net . Maybe you can put it on the forum for everyone to ponder.

I have added a foot switch to control the jake brake. The switch is located on the left side of the steering wheel, on the floor near the firewall, and controlled by my left foot. It is a momentary contact switch.

Now, the jake functions just like the service brake. For many situations, I only use the jake to slow down and then the service brake to stop. Its also very convenient when going down hill to control speed. Tap on....tap off.

I can dig up the vendor if anyone is interested.

The foot switch sounds like a good idea.
Information please.

This is the one I used: http://www.linemaster.com/treadlt2.shtml

They have all kinds of options for a switch. Momentary contact, on-off, front hinge, rear hinge, etc.

Just parallel the foot switch across the dash switch connections and give it a try.

Wow! What a great idea!

This may require yet another entry on my TO DO list.

Can it be wired so that the Jake Brake can be applied while the cruise control is still engaged? It would sure help out the downhill speed gain while on auto-pilot. Having to tap the brakes to disengage is interferring with my runs back to the refrigerator.

Thanks!

I found my old paperwork from 2005. Here is the place I bought my footswitch. Good quality and great price.

I would suspect that the engine locks out he jake brake while the cruise control is activated. I just use the steering wheel buttons to cancel.
