Different manufacturer and vintage, but when I retrofitted cruise control to my Ford Focus (now gone) it required a new brake pedal switch and a new clutch switch too being manual.

Plus all the other gubbins, steering wheel controls, wiring, controller box etc. of course.
Being an older design there was no coding though, it was a separate control box with a physical attachment to the throttle body. (Similar in some ways to the PF A8/S8 method which is from the same era.)
