I use cruise control a lot. I would certainly miss it.

I know that this is an old thread, but I have now done this procedure myself. I purchased a replacement steering wheel (actually from a Fiesta, which means that the LEDs behine the controls are red instead of blue). I removed the trim with the buttons from this replacement wheel and swapped them out with the original. I then enabled Cruise Control using the free FORScan software and an ELM327 ODBII device (USB).

The most difficult part was removing the airbag unit from the steering wheel.

I was under the impression that this was a feature of all cars today. Wrongly it would seem (?)
I use mine a lot, usually to keep within speed limits, when it is safe to do so of course.

Anyone find a solution to retrofit cruise control in the steering wheel of a 2018 B-MAX?
