A Saab using the Trionic 7 engine control system (all petrol versions of the 9-5 and the late years of the old style 9-3) has a drive-by-wire throttle and this makes it very easy to implement the cruise control in software inside the Trionic 7 computer. The only non-software parts of the cruise control is the controls on the left hand stalk, indicator bulb/LED in instrument cluster, safety switches on brake and clutch pedals and some wires. The only part missing on cars without cruise control is the cruise control version of the left hand stalk. -- G–ran Larsson
