Installing aftermarket Cruise - wiring problems
This is my 1st post (hope I'm in the right forum!) and I'm looking
for some help with a cruise installation. My recently acquired van
is the Plainest Jane of all, with zero options so I'm adding one or two.
2005 G3500 Express Cargo Van. 6L with auto. Std wheelbase.
The mechanical install went well with the cable from the servo box
installed at the Throttle Body next to the cable from the GoPedal.
I have located all of the electrical signals but two. Can't find VSS
and TACH. I bought a Haynes manual for this van, but it is worse
than useless - no schematic or pix of those signals. They must go
to the computer under the hood, but I'm clueless as to which wire.
Being temporarly mobility limited, I can't crawl under the beast or
I could follow the wire (VSS) from the Xmission. TACH? I wouldn't
know where to begin to look.......
Sure hope someone can help me to find them.
My thanks in advance.

[a connector for the factory cruise - with the proper signals. ]
[Does anyone know if this is true....or false? ]

I imagine you're going to have an interesting time finding a tach signal. I'm not familiar with the 6.0, but something tells me it's distributorless. For VSS, you should be able to pick that up off the tailshaft of the transmission.
Out of curiosity, why didn't you add the factory cruise in? Seems like that would be a pretty simple plug and play setup, and it'd all be factory and integrated with the truck.Christopher

Yes, no distributer. However, the computer *knows* how fast it is making
the engine run. I _suspect_ that there is such a signal, but where it is
routed, I couldn't guess.....

As I said - tempory mobility impairment. Can't crawl under the beast for a few months

Bought used, no cruise.
I don't know if the wiring harness is set up for retrofit of factory cruise.
....Thus, my question about the harness asking that very question......
