Aftermarket cruise control

Has anyone out there have any knowledge about using aftermarket cruise controls on the early model...1997..class 8 Volvo's????  Tired of spinning my wheels on trying to troubleshoot this pos system.  Have had it looked at 3 different times....hours spent trying to find out why it won't engage.  So far it's been narrowed down to possibly an ohm variation on maybe a break switch.....or something like that.  DW just told me to put an aftermarket system on it and be done with it.  Any thoughts or comments would be appreciated.

 Just a side note on our 2000 Volvo with a cummins N14.

 

 The cruise worked normal except when it noticed a hill in front of it. Then it was lazy, as in it would not open the throttle to accommodate the power needed to stay at speed. It would then almost at once try to catch up to its cruise speed. I just got use to helping it along until it was pulling as needed.

 About two years ago I replaced the throttle poison sensor. It not only fixed the cruise problem, it also made the throttle more responsive .

 

 Hope this helps someone,.   Vern

Vern...where would I locate the throttle position sensor on the Detroit 60?  Any ideas?
