No. The relay activates the system IIRC.

The temp fix is to pull the cruise control fuse so the system wont get any power.

The Recall Info... Ford Australia doesn't have any recall info on it's site, at all? When I put in the Australian VIN on the US site, it said it was invalid. So looks like I will have to contact them about it.
