All I was told is the wire is purple and its on the transmission.

Can someone give me a better idea of where its at cuz ive looked around and cant seem to find it.

Well I need to know exactly which wire to hook it up to. I'm installing my navigation system right now.

ohh well then u don't want to hook it up at the wheel hub ~
But if you follow those wires to the junction u might have a better idea on where the 1 main wire is...
Have you pulled the gray plug from the front of the transmission to see if there is the "purple" wire there?

.02 ~ That stabbing westward in the sig?

dark green/white stripe wire going to the cruise control module under the hood is what you want.

And theres the answer lol
Figured there was something in the dash u could use ~ but won't the cruise control only register after 35mph?

your correct about the cruise control not working until 35 but that has no effect on the signal wire. it always sends a signal to the cruise control regardless of speed.

nooo use the VSS out from the ECU works MUCH better. I have an add-on heads up display that shows speed and tach, 4 wire hookup (VSS, CKS (ecu tach output), +12 and GND)

It's actually around 24mph, manual says 25mph though before the cruise control will engage. It should be a good wire
