Hello all,

Need either a whole new cruise control cable set up with the detent or just the detent. Broke it changing out the thermostat.

Just the ... detent. Not sure what you mean there, Ruff16965 .

You mean the connector on the end of the cable, that attaches to the throttle linkage?

If so, I found this one, and a description of how one guy connected it on his Jeep XJ :

Local stores including dealer look at my like I have grown a second head with a Unicorn like horn out of it. There is a junkyard in Sacramento that specialezes in Dodge trucks will try them.

That is it Ralph, not sure it will fit the Dakota though. I have a couple of messages to people on E-Bay.

Ya, I don't know if it fits the Dakota or not either.

However, the Jeeps used the same 5.2/5.9 throttle bodies, so ... For the price, worth a try, I think. I just tossed it out there.

Just ordered, will have it Monday, was not paying more that the part to have it today or tomorrow. Besides until the weather clears up I am not wotking on it. Still have to pull and clean the throttle body.

Well it showed up yesterday, been pouring down rain, thinking of building a Ark and gathering animals, so have not had a chance to go out and check it out. Wondering how exactly it works, from my memory of the connector at the end of the cable I am not sure. However if there is a break in the weather I will check it out. Not going to install it until after I pull and clean the throttle body, another project for when the rain stops.
