Recently purchased a cruise switch assembly for a 2001 Ranger. Observed the video to ensure the work was within my capabilities. The part arrived quickly after ordering. It is exactly the same as the originally; only made in China. The installation was similar to the video; one exception being the wheel removal required a puller. Stearing wheel removal tool does not work; gear puller was required to loosen. Assembly was quick and easy. Thanks for posting the video! It takes the nknown outifthe work for a non auto mechanic.

Everything was fine except the off button was hard to push and it just didn't snap like the other buttons. but did work. steering wheel needed a puller to remove. other then that video was very helpful
Removed snd replaced cruise control switches 99 ford explorer
December 4, 2017
I needed to replace the cruise control switches on my 1999 ford explorer. The replacement switch was perfect and the video from 1A showing step by step procedures on how to complete the work was excellent. The price was very good compared to a local auto parts store. I received the part from 1A very quickly one day ahead of the scheduled delivery date. A very positive customer experience.

Easy to install by following video. Just as good as stock, premium feel!

Great product

I ordered cruise control switches for my 1999 Ford Ranger that I’m having trouble letting go of. I has a hiccup with my order because I accidentally put a digit incorrectly for my address. A1 couldn’t have been more helpful in pointing me in the right direction. I got the part and it worked like a charm. With their easy to follow instructional videos on YouTube I installed myself. The part was way cheaper than buying from dealership. And doing it myself with A1’s instruction saved me huge in labor. Quality parts, great customer service and installation instructions they have a new customer for life.

Only needed the switches but saved the cable for future repair. Repair video was accurate and the switch replacement was completed in less than 30 minutes. Super easy! Switches work and feel good.

Replacement Cruise-control switches on 1999 Ford Explorer XLT
May 6, 2019
Reviewed 1A YouTube videos for Removal and Replacement procedures ('98 Explorer and '02 Ranger). Inquired with 1A for recommendations on Motorcraft vs. generic replacement parts, and chose the generic switches plus wiring harness assembly 1A used in both How-To videos. Performed the Remove and Replace labor myself, with only a minor "hitch" of needing a gear-puller to remove steering wheel that was "stuck" on splined-shaft. Put everything back together, and it worked-first-time. Economical fix for an annoying problem.

Changing out the old non-working cruise control was intimidating. After watching the 1A video, I decided to give it a try. The part fit perfectly, exactly as the video had shown. Even more difficult was changing a window actuator. Again, 1A came through...has saved me hundreds of dollars.
