    Are you saying your car didn't come with bluetooth and you want to add it? If so you'll need more than the buttons.

    My 14 and all our 15's at work came with factory bluetooth and the mic is in the headliner near the dome light, I'm pretty sure there's also a module behind the radio towards the glovebox as well.

    There was a also dealer or port installed(add-on) bluetooth setup for some cars. For those setups the buttons were on the dash near the power mirror controls. IIRC. This would be the simpler way to go.

    I don't believe my car came with BT - no buttons on the steering wheel and two switch blanks on the panel to the left of the steering wheel (only mirror controls and stability control disable are there).

    That makes sense, though! I figured there would be more to it than just adding a couple buttons, but wasn't sure. Seems like every other optional feature on this car is already prewired... Haha

    I don't car all that much about BT, but figured it would be a nice bonus if I was planning to swap the steering wheel anyway to get cruise control functionality. I'll probably try to source a wheel with the radio controls but no BT buttons to keep things clean.

    Hey friends, I'm excited to start upgrading my 2018 Mirage ES. It's a manual and CC is the first big mod I'd like to do. Just a couple of questions before I buy stuff:

    1) Is the 2nd clutch switch I need the same as the one already installed on the Mirage?

    2) Other than disconnecting the battery & putting on the parking break, are there other things I'll need to make sure to do to prevent the car from doing something crazy like deploying air bags or sounding an alarm?

    3) If my local auto shop buddy can't activate CC from his program, is there a program that would work with android? I don't have a laptop to reprogram it with but if there's not an android alternative I can figure something else out.

    4) can anyone confirm that this works on 2018 Mirage or will I be the first? If I'm first I can share my experience once I'm done.

    If you already have 2 switches on your clutch pedal then I assume you don't need to buy or replace one. Same goes for the brake switch, if you already have the correct one then you probably also have the correct clockspring already as well so are probably just missing the buttons on the steering wheel(provided you have a wheel that buttons could be added to).

    You airbags won't blow up in your face unless you magically put power to the plug leading to them.

    For the other questions, I don't think there's a simple app that'll give you the ability to reprogram your car. If only it were that easy......
    If you can enable it in the proper module then I assume this'll work on any year, at least up to 2020.

    My car, USA 2015 Mirage 5mt DE (no cruise from the factory)

    Parts Bought
    2015 Mirage ES steering wheel, eBay (127 shipped)
    Brakeswitch 8614A183 eBay (4 pin switch instead of 2 pin that's on the car)
    Switchclutch 8606A025 eBay {will need nut at hardware store, m10 1.25} (for 5 speed only, Yes this is needed so when cruise is active, you hit the clutch pedal the cruise shuts off, there will be 2 switches total on the clutch pedal. One being added and one that comes with the car. 40 shipped for both Genuine Mitsu Switches)
    Toyota Mini VCI cable 32 bit eBay (OBD II plug on one end, USB on other 27 shipped)

    install switches
    Brake switch twist out and new one twist in, toss old switch
    Clutch switch installed at top of clutch pedal, wiring for switch was taped into harness no splicing was required.


    install steering wheel
    disconnect battery
    remove airbag (I used a medium to small standard screw driver in 3 locations to push {no twisting} spring to release air bag. Pop up yellow tabs with small standard screwdriver on back of airbag. Remove 2 connectors on back of airbag then remove ground wire on airbag. !!!!!!!!Important!!!!!!!!!!! going forward make sure steering wheel is dead nuts center, recommend paint marker at top of column (12 o'clock mark on threaded male end. Also paint mark on steering wheel) remove nut, i think 17mm or 19mm cant remember. I used impact gun, use at your desecration. once nut is removed used steering wheel puller (I used my fist at the back of the wheel to break loose) Replace with new wheel my 2015 ES wheel had ground wire in same connector as cruise and radio controls. Make sure wheel is still straight and torque wheel nut back down. Couldn't find spec I used just shy of 50 fl/lbs (use of impact gun putting wheel back on is on you. I used it to set the nut into place but torqued by hand)

    Sounds like a lot but I was trying to be descriptive.

    Now you need to change 2 parameters in your ETACS system to active the cruise control (this is where I struggled for a long time)

    I did a ton of research and I recommend you do the same before you start this project.

    Other ways may work, this is how I did it.
    I have an old acer aspire one netbook with an OS: windows XP 32 bit. I have heard 64 bit systems work but have no knowledge here. I found info saying the 32 bit system is easier. I first went to etacsdecoder.com/forum and made an account for the forum, (I READ A LOT) lots of info here, Read as much as you can, sort threads by number of views then start at the top. Downloaded decoder .rar file. Had to convert file. Downloaded winzip off internet. My mini VCI cable came with a driver for the cable (x-horse) downloaded that using an external cd rom. Once you have all that, open etacs decoder (must have internet connection to work) its going to ask you to log in again. This is a different log in than the forum, put a different user name and password (recommend write both user names and passwords down, I didn't and caused problem later) and click down arrow and click register, NOT LOG IN!! (I derailed here for days) system should boot up. You hit log in after you register. (In this order) plug obdII into car, plug usb into laptop, turn key on. Under ETACS tab I changed to x-horse. Next move to engine tab, find both cruise control parameters and enable them. Click "write to ECU". follow prompts on screen (turn ignition off, wait 2 secs, turn ignition on) press ok. Done. Now cruising!
    bi
    What I struggled with, tried downloading software that came with the cable thinking it would work on the Mirage. Only part I used was the driver.

    This is what I gathered
    Driver=program to run cable
    Hardware= Cable
    Firmware= program that is the cable OBDII part
    Software= ETACS Decoder

    Bonus!! Radio controls work as soon as the new wheel was put on!!

    Good luckAttachment 9960Attachment 9961Attachment 9962
    I successfully added cruise control to my 2014 DE using this post as a guide. I bought the cable, clutch switch, brake switch and a steering wheel out of a 2017 Outlander. I used ETACS Decoder with windows 10 64bit with no problem, other than turning off firewall. I had no problem with the controls on the Outlander wheel, I did not have to change resistors or anything. I did nothing other than two switches, steering wheel and decoder program and the Cruise works great!!!
