    Looks like the ETACS Decoder software required to program the Cars' computer seems to be unavailable?

    https://etacsdecoder.com/forum/showt...d=8561#pid8561

    When I click on the link to "Etacs_Decoder_5145.rar" says the attachment doesn't exist.

    Anyone have a copy of the software I could use?

    That version is outdated and not available or runnable. The current version is 5330 and it is available elsewhere on the forum.

    Got the Doax cruise kit installed in my 2014 Mirage!

    Ran into a few oddities that I wasn't expecting.

    The Brake switch that I purchased in anticipation of needing to replace the one in my car wasn't needed, as it had a white brake switch with the extra two pins needed for the cruise control (oddly).

    Also, the centre cable connector that you plug the cruise control panel wire into also carried the horn on my car, which is required for bi-annual safety inspections here, so I ended up splicing the cable into the two wires, and then plugged the cable back into its original spot so I can have a horn! I knew this was a possibility reading the forum, but I was hoping my 2014 somehow didn't have this setup.

    The ETACS decoder software (Version 5330 and up anyway) now doesn't allow you to do *any* writes to the onboard car computer without paying a bit... for 5 "write credits" it cost me about $10 CAD... totally worth it.

    The little cruise light doesn't show up on the dash, but it works, and works well! The car idles and cruises at very low RPMs, this will get a good workout when I go to Cape Breton next weekend!

    White switch on left is what was in my 2014 DE CVT, the Blue one on the right I purchased for the project.

    That is odd that your dash light doesn't work. Did you change both settings in ETACs?

    Yeah,

    I made sure to select both settings in ETACS for Cruise Control, and Cruise Control Options (Present, accept).

    I'll have another look and double check, but yeah I'm pretty sure the little green cruise light didn't light up, but it works anyway!
