Default 2009 PT Cruise Control

So I know some of you have put cruise controls on your PT's. my questions are, did you put in the OEM cruise control or did you put in a after market unit (Rostra)? If OEM, where did you get them? eBay? Salvage yard? Is ANY part of the cruise system pre-installed in the PT from the factory? We have the base model PT. thanks

My base model 09 was pre wired for it. Took my dad and I a couple of hours to install it. He did the work under the hood while i pulled the airbag and installed the column stuff. I installed the factory kit purchased off of EBay. I have a post somewhere on here on my experience installing it. I also have installed the factory fogs.

About how much did you pay for the parts?

Here is where I got it and for the same price. It was the cheapest place I could find.

I got the cruise control (part # 82209360AC) hooked up. Our PT was NOT pre-wired. A couple of things to note. I had to make sure the new plugs were pushed ALL THE WAY INTO the C3 connector. Also the new wires for the clock spring plug need to be in the #1 & 2 position, NOT the 5 & 6 position. Read this: Installed factory cruise control but not working
Now to the problem. If I just turn the key to the on position, and hit the cruise button, the "cruise" light on the dash comes on like it should. If I START the car and hit the cruise button, the light comes on for a second or two and then shuts back off. Also the check engine picture flashes a few times. Will try to borrow a code reader tomorrow to see what the check engine is about. I have checked the wiring several times today. Any suggestions/ideas/input?
Thanks

GOT IT!!!!! After sleeping on the job overnight :-) I checked the two wires that inserted into the brake light switch and THEY were ALSO NOT INSERTED ALL THE WAY!!! I hate those little plugs. Got those pushed in all the way and the cruise control now works!!!!!
Thank you all for the help...

Glad you got it fixed. You will enjoy it. I know I sure do and a great sense of pride installing it yourself.
