2005 steering wheel on a 2000 excursion 7.3

Hello , I am a newbie to this forum. I purchased a 2000 Ex that had a 2005
steering wheel installed. I have button lights and horn, no warning lights. I Know I can't get radio buttons working ( radio also changed)
The cruise controls are hooked up but not functioning. Previous owner said CC worked prior to swap, but lives in NYC so had little need. All his other upgrades appear to have been done correctly. Has anyone done this swap an no what might be wrong. Do I need to put in a 2005 clockspring? Wiring under the air bag seems right, but since I do not have a color coded wiring diagram of the wiring assemblies, I can't be sure.:

the swap is pretty well documented. a quick search here and or on the ford truck enthusiast forum will turn up a couple different threads on the subject. here is the best one I have found.

Thanks Sticker Monster,
I really appreciate the reply.
I read the article on the swap. I am now just wanting to know if I need a 2005
clock-spring since my wheel is from a 2005 EX and previous owner says he did
not change the clock-spring.

a clockspring from a 99 and up navigator or expedition that had the controls on the wheel or I believe 2003 and up excursion that had the audio and hvac on the wheel. all of those should work.

cruise button voltages

When the EX is on a scanner, it shows that the "on" button is only producing 4 volts. It needs 12 to turn cruise on. When 12v is "jumped" down at the connector under the steering column, it shows that it is turning cruise on, shows on the scanner screen. If I drive down the road and jump that same connection at speed, cruise does not engage. OK, maybe buttons are dirty/corroded, something. I got another wheel that owner guaranteed buttons worked b4 removing and that he just changed to go back to tan color.
I took those cruise button assembly and installed, still no cruise. All buttons on the scanner are functuioning but maybe the resistence is not exact and that is why cruise not working. Does anyone know if the resistance numbers on the 2000 cruise buttons and on the 2005 cruise buttons is the same?
Manuals do not seem to give that info. I also have two extra wires brown and a white, this is on the radio control side and I am assuming it is for the radio controls.
Thanks in advance,

Scott

Sticker Monster, Just to be correct, are you saying that I DO need to change clockspring to one that had both cruise and radio controls, say, off of a 2005?
My clockspring appears to function since I am getting voltage from all the buttons, though maybe not the RIGHT voltage( as in the on button)

Cruise fixed

Hi Guys, Yes I did get the cruise working. I found a 2000 black leather wheel,
put in on,. hooked it up and all is good. Now I have (2) 2005 black steering wheels that are on no use to me. With the 2005 wheel and a scanner I never got the cruise engaged light on as it does with the 2000 wheel. Let me know if anyone wants my 2005 wheels?
PainterX out.

don't think the 08s will work, i think someone was saying the newer trucks use a hex instead of splines like the previous gens,
