It helps a little, but i still don't understand how i can tell if the wiring is already installed. Do i have to take the wheel off to see? It sounds like its installed on most everybodys patriot/compass.

Hi
Just remove the cover around the steering and look at connection C2 as posted by Gramps on page 2. look for the speed control wires in pin 4,5 and 6 if you have them it an easy job.
Regards,
Merlin

i don't know if this has already been posted, but if so, then 'MY BAD'.

the Compass CC kit and the Patriot CC kit are TWO ENTIRELY DIFFERENT kits. makes no sense to me, since they are both MK's, but who knows.

my Compass kit consisted of only 3 parts and was a simple 'plug and play'. the Patriot kit, according to the EPC pic, seems to be a bit more complicated with many more parts.

just thought you might like to know.......

Hi,

I am installing one by on my compass. I couldn't pull the steering wheel off last time so I put everything back in. I borrowed a steering wheel puller from ad autoparts but it is the kind with the bolts, and it doesn't seem to be the right one to use. Those of you who have done it: did you use a puller with the hooks to hook up the two holes on each side of the retaining bolt? I think everything will be easy as soon as I get the wheel off....

didn't USE a puller. once i removed the air bag, i removed the nut, marked the wheel and the shaft so that i can line it up later, and then just simply pulled on the wheel until it came off. that was it.

The wheel will come off for half an inch and it stopped there. Even using a puller wouldn't pull it off (the puller started to wear out so I stopped). Why is that??

I finally got the steering wheel off and installed it. It works perfect.

I pulled the wheel off by using a steering wheel puller with the "GM steering wheel puller legs" (part# 3510). I think I will never pull the wheel off by myself. It seems to be really tight, and even the puller itself is worn out after I pulled the wheel. I suggest NOT to put the retaining nut back in the hole for puller to stand on, because that may destroy the thread. I used the piece of metal came with the puller legs.

The information on the forum really helped a lot. Thanks much for sharing your experiences.

Mopar Speed Control Kit....List Price $225.00 Dealer Cost $169.00

NOW, for the really GREAT NEWS!!! (if you haven't already purchased a kit)

the kit consists of 3 parts

switch......................PN 4671929AA which has a List Price of $17.95
wire harness....................PN 68036592AA with a List Price of $65.75
steering wheel cover...PN 1EB85XDVAB (GRAY) or
PN 1EB84DK7AB (Beige)...........................with a List price of $65.95

this is all that is in the kit ( i have verified this with my own 4 eyes)

as you can see, even if you pay LIST PRICE, when you purchase these parts separately, your total is 'only' $149.65, a saving of over $75.00!!!!

note: part of the savings is that with the kit you get BOTH the gray and beige steering wheel covers, but who needs BOTH? just buy those parts and make your own kit.....that's what I'M DOING!!!!!

GO FORTH WITH YOUR INSTALL AND SAVE $$

P.S. also, the PN for the wiring harness is updated and is the same harness as used on the Limited models with Remote Radio Control. with this harness, i 'believe' that the radio controls will work when i install the Leather wheel as i have planned.

NOTE: the kit does supply you with 2 screws to mount the CC switch into the wheel. you can pick these up at any hardware store for less than a $1. installing mine on 1/7/08
Do you know what size those screws/bolts (and any associated nuts) were? I'm looking to do this install and want to have everything ready to go when I do the install.

Jeepster hasn't been around for a while. If you go here and download the parts book from the link in the 3rd post it will tell you just about all the nuts and bolts used.

Gramps,
I found the kit in the parts book, but it lists "SCREW" without any sizes. It does share a part number with the switch, so I'm guessing it comes with it. Also, the speed control kit for the Compass (the '07 at least) only needs 3 of the 8 parts listed in the parts book.

Current Prices (as of 1/2/09) for the 3 parts you need for an 07 Compass are:
Switch PN# 4671929AB $18.85
Cover PN# 1EB85XDVAB $69.05 (Grey) (Beige: 1EB84DK7AB $69.05)
Wiring PN# 68000462AB $63.65

Total: $151.55
Kit: $231.00

The kit includes both covers (why? who knows.) leading to the $70 difference between buying the parts seperately and buying them as a kit. Thanks Gramps for the parts book link!

Well, I purchased the switch, cover, and wiring harness seperately. It turns out that the cover doesn't have the pre-cut hole anymore unless you purchase the kit. So I'm going to cut the hole in the cover myself and save another $70.

Funny how things work out.

You are the busy one! Do you have a heated shop? It's only 14 degress there, about like here, and I'm freezing my ears off!
