Ok, i was dissapointed that my CT hasn't cruise control. So, if you feel the same :), then you will need the folowing stuff:

1. 8463234011 cruise control switch (for cars without PCS)
2. 8463348020 wire
3. 4518676010C0 cover steering wheel
4. screw M5 10mm x2 (i'm not used original)

5. free time ~ 30 min and can of favorite beer :D

The steps:

First of all and important, take off the minus wire from the 12V battery and wait ~2 minutes.

Then take off the covers from the both sides of the steering wheel (use thin screwdriver)



Now we need: from the left side push down lower steel wire and push up upper (look at red circles on image), from the right side only upper.

Carefully pull the driver airbag...


.. and we will see this


yellow circle - wire connection hole
red circles - switch mount holes

Ok, now insert the switch inside and place over holes


Connect wire, screw bolts.. we almost finished


Now, get the driver airbag back (just place it over and push), left cover and new right cover.


Thats it! :cool: Connect the minus to 12V battery and turn the engine ON.
The new green indicator is telling us that now we got CC!!! :D

Very nice! Great work!

All the more reason why this forum needs a DIY/"How to" section.

:cool: thanks! I've got yellow CT, middle version - called "Executive" here.

the parts i'm used is Toyota common, i mean this switch and connection wire are suitable for almost all Lexus-Toyota models (without PCS option off-course). Yeah, actually it was a little risky, but the price for the whole kit around 60$ (especially if you order them from Toyota parts catalog, not from Lexus), so i decided to go for it ;) If you're not so sure, just take off the driver airbag and look for the CC connection socket, but i'm 100% sure you got it :)

Mine is a basic silver CT (my 2nd choice), i really want the white CT, but because of the disaster that happened in Japan, the Lexus president and sales director told me that the next shipments are unannounced, which uptill now (i think) there are still no shipment here in Philippines.

Two models here, F-sport & basic.
price difference is php580K est = usd13,333 more for the F-sport model. :eek:

wow 60$ for the whole kit is cheap, when i search it at sewell it would cost around 130$ if im not mistaken. have you tried the cruise control yet? how did it go? :D if i got some time, will check for the CC socket. Thanks SID

So, I purchased a CT and it didn't have cruise control. Are aftermarket kits really worth it?

I've been eyeing on a kit, but I want some opinions first before I decide.

Definitely too expensive to be worth it. Plus all the wiring that needs to be run too. UGH.

@SID hi Sid!! Good news, I got the package from Sewell awhile ago. when I got home, I unpack the package at once and installed the cruise control kit. It took me less than 5mins because of your write up! Cool! Thanks man! Drove the CT and tested the cruise control. It works perfectly!

Regarding the damper, i will assemble it as soon as I have time this weekend.

How's the rubber cargo tray working for you? I was thinking of getting it.

Hi Matt! Good day! It's very handy and practical. You wont be afraid of spilling liquid substances or leave scratches on the stock "furry" cover. Go get one, it's really worth the $$

I know this post is old but I would like to offer my thanks to the original poster for such a thoughtfully written account including parts numbers. I have ordered the parts from my UK Lexus dealer and these will be fitted next month. I always thought that all our was lacking was cruise control. I can do without the leather seats, the heated mirrors and seat and the built in sat nav but the cruise control is something which I don't like to be without. My UK dealer who has been very helpful has never been asked to provide parts for retro-fitting cruise control...somewhat surprisingly! If any uk members are interested, Antony Wilson At Lexus Hatfield is the man to speak to.

I had no idea that any CT's came without cruise control, is that just in non-US models?
Certainly, the CT has fallen victim to cost engineering in good old rip off UK. Nobody in UK had a space saver spare tyre for example, everyone had a little pot of goo (which costs about 180 dollars to replace when it is 3 years old and when used to repair the tyre, renders the tyre completely useless beyond its trip to the dealer for a replacement) and a compressor.

LOL, that's a unique way to describe fix-a-flat. I'm glad that I have a real spare, but it's actually not that unusual to see cars without it now-days. Even the Chevy volt just has the fix-a-flat and compressor and it costs $40K.
