2009 Cobalt Cruise Control

Ok... installed the cruise switches on my 09 cobalt steering wheel alone with the wires. Brought it to the chevy dealer and he went through all the steps to turn on the cruise...doesn't work. By the way pin 61 is populates as I was told to check before. He doesn't know why it won't work.

Gotta ask, why would you install cruise onto an 09 Cobalt. It comes
Standard.

On a Cobalt XFE 5 speed LS cruise control is not standard. Most likely because cruise control is horrible for mpg.

What year was the switches from? There is a difference in pinouts between years (At least with the HHR). See if the dealer will print you off a wiring diagram for the clockspring and switches. It should be a simple repin.

Thanks Nighthawk for getting back. I was wrong there was no gray wire in pin 61. The guy at the chevy garage said I just need to find out where the gray wire that goes into 61 comes from and and I shoud be able to install a wire to make it work. Does this sound right??? He said that the cruise in the module is now turned on. I also tried a Rostra aftermarket and that wouldn't work either. Would like to get the OEM working before my daughter gets a speeding ticket going to college. 20 year old can't figure out how we used to drive before cruise....thanks, Dave

That is correct, you will need to manually route a new wire from pin61 of the BCM connector to the appropriate place in the clock spring.

If you need some help with that, there was a how-to written up:

Electrical How To: Factory Cruise Control and Remote Radio Control Installation (2007- 2010) - Cobalt SS Network

As far as speeding tickets go, I can say right now cruise only somewhat helps provided they set it at the speed limit. I've set Cruise for much higher speeds before.
