Yeah, It looks like I should be able to just plug it in. Apart from that I need to ad or change some parts I think. I'll look it over good before I even start with it and if it works out I'll put a DIY in the DIY category if someone else would be interested in it.
My VX has an aftermarket cruise control that works great. Luckily I didn't need to install it - one of the previous owners had the fun. The one I have is vacuum operated and is engaged by a cable on the gas pedal that goes through the firewall to the throttle cable. I needed to add a vacuum canister so that the cruise would stay steady during uphill climbs.
The OEM cruise control will require adding a cruise control module to the integrated control unit by the fuse box in addition to the other items needed. Too much work and expense if you ask me.
You are probably better off finding an ebay special. Unless you're not cheap like me!
The VX will not take an OEM cruise unit easily. Where the upshift light is, is the Cruise indicator on any other Civic.
A list of the parts you need:
Cruise control unit
Cruise control pedal assembly
Cruise dashboard switch
Cruise control steering wheel (or the cruise switch on the wheel)
Clock spring that uses cruise control (from any other Civic than a VX)
Actuator unit from under the hood.
Extra wiring to hook it all up since the wiring is NOT in the VX
I've thought about adding cruise to my VX before, but given the availabilty of Aftermarket cruise systems, it would be easier for a less electromechanically inclined person to get one of those and have someone install it.
But if you've got the gumption, there are many DIY threads on www.Honda-Tech.com to help you out and give you ideas.
I just bought an Audiovox cruise control for my Swift for $89.99 and I noticed a sticker on the box saying "Not recommended for use on Honda vehicles". Doesn't say why. Using the Honda cruise is probably your best bet.
