    cruise control, how do i use it?

    My car has the stork but im beginning to think its not connected or programed? No amount of fiddling with it seems to do anything lol i might be being daft and it might be simple but i cant do it haha

    You may have a faulty clutch or brake switch.

    A scan with vcds would show this.

    Re: cruise control, how do i use it?

    A scan does not show a faulty clutch switch you would have to look through measuring blocks to check

    To operate the cruise you have to have the stalk in the on position which is pulled towards you you will feel it click in then you get to a speed above 20mph then push the center button

    If it doesn't work then you have a problem which is more then likely the clutch switch

    If you can't get it scanned then remove the trim which covers the area where the switch is remove the plug from the switch and short the plug with a piece of wire and try the cruise again if it works you need a new switch at around 15 quid

    Or it was retro fitted and the control module wasn't changed and its a F version. Again a scan will tell you.

    Yes it could be that its not been coded but if you don't have vcds its far quicker and cheaper to check the clutch switch

    Check one thing at a time if shorting the clutch switch doesn't work then get it plugged in and checked it could even be a duff stalk
