***DISCLAIMER: Please read the full description of the video, there's good information***
Shows you how to install new cruise control buttons on your 1998-2004 Ford Panther vehicle. Notice the funny way I say "buttons" multiple times through this video? ;) I took the idea from here: http://youtu.be/aZrSm2y7zAo
For the first time ever, I figured out how to make my videos HD and not have those ugly bars all over my videos... other than it taking forever to edit and upload, lemme know what y'all think! I personally like it all things considered..
Just as a few fair warnings:
* Some 1997 Lincoln Town Cars have a similar steering wheel as their 1998-2004 brethren all across the board.
* 2004 was the last year for this design of steering wheel; it changed for 2005-2011. In addition, 1992-1997 (Aero generation) as well as box-style Panthers (1979-1991) have different steering wheels for the most part, so this will be of no help if you are needing help with those model years.
* If you have the multifunction buttons (has the cruise on the left side and radio/HVAC on the right side), this video _may_ work for you, BUT you'll need the appropriate button pods to replace them. This video is for the cruise control equipped Panthers ONLY and is optimized as such.
* Steering wheel R&R is not necessary, but you'll either need to improvise or use a Ford puller if you choose to go this route. A standard steering wheel puller will be of NO USE.
* Forgot to mention this in the video, but if you have to drive for ANY reason with the air bag out or otherwise disabled, keep in mind that you won't have the chime where the key is in RUN and you don't have your seatbelt on, and a nice little airbag light will light up. The horn should still function if it's hooked up. DON'T FORGET TO PULL THE AIR BAG FUSE BEFOREHAND AND LEAVE IT OUT.
* and finally, PAY ATTENTION TO THE AIR BAG SAFETY WARNINGS!! I've cleverly marked them as to let you know where they are.
* and with regards to said airbag safety warnings, in the brief steering wheel pulling part, I meant to say SPLICED IN MY CRUISE SWITCHES... normally when possible you shouldn't mess with the airbag wires since those need a constant and clean connection AT ALL TIMES and there's a chance that a solder job can screw with its deployment.
