Default connected my line locks to my cruise off button.

I finally got around to running my linelocks to the cruise off button. I'm putting this post up for anyone wondering how to do this. I ran the power for the linelocks through a rocker switch from the passenger side fuse box. Then ran the ground wires for each solenoid to the peach andorange(red) stripedwire for the cruise. I now flip the rocker switch on (non-momentary switch) and when I hold down the cruise off button the linelocks power up until I let go. With my power switch turned off i assume the cruise will work as normal. i do occasionally use the cruise off button when i see a cop.

The wire you need is the 4th from the right in this picture. That connector is underneath the steering column and you need to remove a few interior panels to get at it.

To save some time. Line locks are electical solenoids that go inline between the front brake calipers and abs module to hold the front brakes locked after the brake pedal is released. They are used to do burnouts at the track or elsewhere without damaging your rear brakes.

I know someone will ask.

Just don't hit that 'cruise off' while cruising if you've forgotten and left your line lock power on. Doh!

I hardly ever use any of the buttons on the wheel and it would be sweet to hook some of the other electronics up there (line lock, nitrous, etc.) instead of running more switches. Nice work!

I'd have to hold it down to cause a problem and even then it would just prevent the front brakes from working. It's not like they will lock up.

I didn't buy a kit so it was a pain in the ***. I didn't know hurst made a kit for our cars. I had a slow leak at one of my fittings on the passenger side solenoid that had me scratching my head for weeks. I finally replaced the fitting, but not before I bought a whole new solenoid just to find out the first one was fine.

Well my cruise did work this morning. hold off on doing this until i figure out what's the deal. I was hoping it is just a blown fuse, but there doesn't appear to be a cruise control fuse.

Default RE: connected my line locks to my cruise off button.

Well after trying everything my cruise will not work. I even reloaded my tune and disconnected the linelocks to no avail.

If anyone has a clue what could have gotten fried I'd appreciate it. I checked all my fuses and none are blown, but of course none list the cruise control either.

I would not recommend doing this if you want to keep your cruise control. Are there any parts of the cruise under the hood I can check?
