Buttons are not lit on the wheel on the F53.

Mine doesn't. Also there is no indicator light that the cruise control is ON. Unfortunately, this is normal.

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.

I wasn't going to mention it, but I see your user name is Mr Wrench.....

I have modified both my steering wheel switches and cruise indicator to light up. Wasn't easy, but it is possible.

Tderonne could you tell us how you did this. I would love to have a light somewhere to let me know when it is on.

Yes, I'd like to possibly do something like this also..

I mentioned the cruise/speed control indicator light here before.

http://www.irv2.com/forums/f23/cruis...ts-175591.html

It's just one wire that is missing, from pin#1 on the cruise servo/module to the cluster connector (I forget the pin there). The light is in the '99-'04 cluster (not sure about later ones) and the circuit traces are there so you just have to add a pin. I'm a junkyard kind of guy, so it was easy to grab a couple connectors with short lengths of wire to play with.

The Ranger thread I linked then has lost its pictures. Let me see if I can find some.

Of course I can't find any good pictures now. Looks like people have done it on Rangers and Focuses. I can find a couple write ups, but no good pictures. I think I still have some of the parts I grabbed at the junkyard. If I can find them, I'll try to get a picture or two.
