Speed Control Indicator Lamp

I have a 1995 Ranger and I want to hook up the cruise control indicator lamp in the instrument cluster so that it works like an Explorer. I found the wiring diagrams on AllData, but I need some things. I happen to have an extra cluster with wiring pigtails, so I can get an extra pin out of it for the light (pin13 on the large white connector), but I still need a pin for the servo connector for power to the light (pin1 on the servo connector). Does anyone have access to an extra cruise control servo connector they would sell me? It doesn't have to be from an Explorer, I just need one of the pins out of the connector to use for pin1. Then all I have to do is run a wire from the servo to the cluster. I'm assuming that the Ranger and Explorer servos are the same and that there is voltage on pin1 when the cruise is set. Guess I'll find out.

Columbus, IN. But theres a Pull-A-Part in Indianapolis. I work second shift and it's tough to drag myself out of bed to go up there before work.

Well, I made it to Pull-A-Part yesterday and grabbed a couple of servo pigtails and a servo out of an Explorer. Here are the wiring diagrams...

1995 Ranger Servo Wiring


1995 Ranger Cluster Wiring (Large White)


As you can see Pin 1 on the servo and Pin13 on the cluster are NOT USED.

1995 Explorer Servo Wiring


1995 Explorer Cluster Wiring (Large White)


All I should have to do is add the pins into my harnesses and connect the wires together. The ranger didn't receive this wire until 1997 apparently.

Also, as a side note, in 1996 and newer Rangers/Explorers, the cluster pin order was reversed. So, pin1 became pin16 and vice versa. IE, pin 13 became pin 4...

1996 Ranger Cluster Wiring

Well I finished up some things this weekend, including the speed control mod. There was only one other modification necessary...

I had to drill a small hole in the servo connector for the wire to pass through.


The end result...


So, if anyone is interested, that's how you hook it all up.

Where did you get the wiring info? I just picked up all the factory stuff to add it to my '99 but my truck isnt pre-wired so I will be doing all the wiring. I got the servo for my motor and the column with the cruise stuff.
