Has the fact that their are a couple of versions of the cruise control kit available (Daytime Running Light or Non daytime running lights) got anything to do with the problem?
Right. The left switch plates are of course different for DRL and non-DRL models. Triumphs CC kit replaces the switch plate, along with the clutch lever housing.I believe that either DRL version should have no bearing whatsoever on adding CC. Those are lighting circuits and should have nothing to do with CC.
Good adviceAt this point, I am not planning on doing a tutorial, sorry. I'll be glad to answer any specific questions though. A lot of answers can be found using the "Search Community" at the top of this page or Google. That is what I do.
In addition to knowing how to load maps (4 months ago I had never used TuneECU or an Android device), one needs to know how to strip and splice wires, and also be able to "run" wires from point A to B. Knowledge of basic electricity is recommended.
I'd recommend to anyone considering doing this to become fully comfortable with what you are trying to accomplish before you start. In theory it isn't difficult. In actual practice it may be more difficult than you think. I would take the headlight apart and inspect it to ensure you know what wires to tap (post 28). I removed all of the switches in the switch housing and put it in my vice before drilling the 1/2" hole. Study how the wires run from switch to headlight and decide how you're going to do it. I didn't have a guide to follow but I knew what I wanted to do. Be honest with yourself in evaluating your abilities.

Full tutorial can be difficult because you've no idea about people's general skill level or knowledge, and you don't want to feel responsible for other people's cock ups.
A full idiot proof step-by-step guide in minute detail can be a PITA.
I can do the wiring and switch, no problem.As far as the Tuneecu part of this goes there's already a very thorough and detailed tutorial on the Tuneecu forum site. It's provided by the developer of the app and is all you need. I had the tutorial open on an iPad and used an Android tablet for the map upload. Critical with Tuneecu is you need the correct kit. It doesn't work with Windows or OS, only Android. It needs an OBD LX or MX bluetooth dongle. That's it, doesn't work with anything else so don't ask. The process is a little nerve-wracking but not difficult. As for the switch, it's two wires, will take some figuring, again not difficult with patience and study.
