Cruise Control 70 MPH limit

Hi All
I've notice that my Jap import Cruiser has a 70 MPH cruise control
limit.
I.e you can't engage cruise above 70 MPH. Is there a mod for this ?

Hi Christopher,
Thanks for the info. I've just got to find where the
Control module is situated.

not do any good?

Sorry, can't help you there. My Haynes manual concludes "... if it isn't [working] take it to a dealer service department ..." without explaining where the wretched control module is. And the wiring diagrams in the back are useless.
However there must be a solution since my (UK spec) cruise control definitely holds speeds above 70mph.

Hi Rob,
I did a search of various archives, but couldn't find anything
definitive other than what Chris has found which he has already
provided to your previous posts on the 80s list.
Logically, I would try to find which ECU is used to control it and then
see if it is interchangeable with the ECU in a UK spec model that
doesn't have the restrictions.

Search the old Aussie 80scool or post a msg to the new board (lcool_aus ?).
I'm sure someone has fixed in the past down under (maybe an import there
too?)
