Battery Disconnect

I had my cruise control stop functioning for the third time now. To "reset" it and get it working again is simple enough. Just disconnect the battery for a minute. Then, re-index the windows and I'm all set.

I thought about taking it in to have it fixed, but figure that would likely be futile.

Instead, I'm thinking that installing one of those battery disconnect switches might be just the thing. Then if I'm away from home (likely the case?) I can just pop the hood and - voila!

Has anyone else done this? Seems preferable (quicker & easier) than keeping a wrench handy...
