Have you had any progress on the cruise control panel ?

I am interested in adding cruise control to my i-MiEV also. I found Outlander 2006 circuit diagram and I cannot see any CAN connections there. Only resistor network.

Pretty sure lots of things changed with regard to CAN Bus connectivity between 2006 and 2012, and lots more has changed since then too

What CAN connections were you looking for? In your diagram, the resistor network is tied directly to the engine ECU which would translate those resistor switched signals into a CAN message which would be put on the Bus. The object to be controlled would pick those signals off the Bus . . . . *if* the 2006 Outlander is actually using a CAN Bus communication network

Ofcourse Outlander has Can bus. I put the schematic here because we want to use 2006 outlander or lancer steering wheel buttons. Newer models have new steering wheels and their buttons do not fit to i-miev steering wheel. On the end of previous page some people claimed that steering wheel switches are connected to CAN I say that they are not. That means if i-miev has unused wires on the clockspring then we can install for example Liteon AP900C and control it by steering wheel.
Cruise controller connects to can bus to get car speed and between accelerator pedal wire with Y connection and generates suitable voltages so that EV-ECU thinks you have pressed the pedal and we have constant speed!

So i went out to look at the connector on the right side of the steering wheel--it has 4 wires and the wire colors match up with the drawing above in that pin 2 is Blue and 3 is Green. Pin 1 is Violet and 4 is Gray.

I guess the next step is to find the clockspring connector to see if there is continuity across the joint, if there are wires in the harness and if so where do they go...

I found out that 2011 EU i-MiEV has 5 wires on the clock spring but only three have been connected one is for horn relay and two other wires go to airbag.
