My truck is a 2004 bottom-or-the-line Silverado Work Truck with 4-speed
automatic and 4.8L V-8.
I have heard from several people that all 2004 Silverado trucks are
pre-wired from the factory to accept the OEM Delco Cruise Control Lever.
If what I have been told is true, all you need to do is unplug the
original turn signal lever and replace it with one which has the cruise
control buttons. Apparently, there is no need to do any computer
programming and the truck will now have the equivalent of a
ready-to-operate factory installed cruise control.
Is this too good to be true? Unfortunately, my local Chevy dealer will
not confirm or deny that this simple cruise control upgrade is possible.
However, the information below indicates that the cruise control upgrade
is a plug-and-play operation for all 2004 Silverado trucks:

I have tried to order the 2004 Silverado Service Manual Set from Helm
(in order to research the cruise control section), but these manuals
have not been published yet:
Does anyone know if it is possible to obtain a genuine Delco cruise
control upgrade from a Chevrolet dealer? (I have already been to my
local dealer, and he claims to know nothing about how to do this.) Or,
could a speedometer/cruise control shop do this upgrade without causing
any damage and/or voiding the warranty on my truck? The last thing I
need is to void my warranty.
