Default 2012-2013 Kia Rio cruise controle

Im in the Ohio in the United States and i bought a 2013 kia rio LX with power package. I was wondering if i would be able to have a factory cruise control system installed and how much it would be and what parts i would need. I have a totaled EX i can get the parts from.

My sister has a 2008 Mazda 3 and all she had to do was buy the buttons and a brake control switch and it worked like it had just come from the factory.

Any help would be appreciated

Caleb, I can only talk from experience with other cars.

Some car manuafcturers are very good about having a basic car to which is easy to add parts to. My Subaru and Scion are very good at that.

I have added CC to several cars and it depends on the manufacturer as to the ease to do this. I cant say about KIA, but.... I do know there is often a difference in the CC computer (may be a separate computer, may be built into engine management) between manual and automatic transmission cars.

IF the Kia has a CC computer, you'll need to stay with the same transmission type from the donor car.

But overall, I think its do-able. Search for parts needed and parts numbers and go hunting for those parts. Should plug right in.

Good luck. And BTW, ROSTRA says this may work in your car.

I am waiting for an answer, or just change the wheel.
Maybe this month I'll know.

If you can find a steering wheel off a wrecked Rio with Cruise, it will work, plug and play. At least, it should. The wiring is there, the switch just isn't.

hi, i'm a new Rio owner. I would like to know if the cruise control can be activated by just adding the cruise control buttons or Kia has deactivate it in the ECU. Hope to hear from you!!

p/s: wondering if the original reverse camera wiring is in place too and i could just slap in the reverse camera to have it working...

The wiring and connectors are NOT there for the camera. I stand by my statement that the cruise will work with ONLY the addition of the buttons...however I wish someone would confirm it to be true.
@czerwo, what "package" are you waiting for?
