    Thats interesting .... I own a 2002 A4 and am looking into Cruise control as well, but no one has told me that. I'll have to ask the person thats going to fit it next week. If I find out I'll let you know

    What a load of BS from the stealers - all you need is a new stalk and someone to program it via vag-com!

    The parts will cost you about £150 - £180.

    I haven't done it myself as I don't think it is worthwhile.

    There are a few guys on Tyresmoke who can do it. The parts can be ordered from www.Audi-accessories.co.uk

    How2 guide is available here:

    Right I have some more info for you, If your steering wheel isn't multi function you will need to change your steering column ecu! If you have a multi function wheel then you should be ok.
    I haven't so I need the Ecu

    BUT, some model years came out with the upgraded steering column ecu even though they didn't have multi-function steering wheels. My 2001 B6 A4 didn't, but my 2003 B6 A4 did have the upgraded steering column ecu and it hasn't got a multifunction steering wheel. It depends on how honest your dealer is. I used Links Audi for both my cruise retro-fits, and on my second one, they were honest and told me that they had found that my cars ecu was an upgraded one. I don't know the part numbers, is there any way you can get to yours to check it's part no?

    You may be right arthurfuxake mine is a 2002 B6 and the guy who will fit it is an Audi guy who works for himself and is highly recommended and he told me mine wont have it. So maybe they put it in later?

    the total cost of supplying the parts and carrying out the fitting and coding procedure will be in the region of 290 inclusive. The parts required are Control lever, ECU and lower steering coloum couling.

    That wasn't true when I retro-fitted cruise control to my 2004 B6 S4. The factory had fitted a "down market" version of the SCSM (steering column switch module) which wouldn't accept the coding for cruise control - so as well as the cruise switch and steering column trim I had to buy a new SCSM.

    The green cruise light only comes on above a certain speed IIRC 25mph I assume that is what you mean by putting the ignition on.

    Have you checked the clutch pedal switch ?

    There have been quite a number of cases where a faulty clutch pedal switch would not let the cruise control activate.

    Yes the clutch switch could be the problem & Audi do have a habit of changing colours.

    You can check in vag com by pushing the clutch peddle and see if it alters the readings in the Measuring blocks.

    You should also see changes in code when moving the cruise control stalk in VAG com on the ecu also in the measuring blocks.

    The green light only comes on if you activate the cruise control above a certain speed (IIRC its 25 mph) below this speed and the light will not activate even on a fully functioning cruise control.

    measuring block information:

    066,0,Cruise Control System
    066,1,Vehicle Speed,(current)
    066,2,Switch Positions I
    ; 1xxx = Cruise Control System active
    ; x1xx = Clutch operated (always 1 with Automatic Transmission)
    ; xx1x = Brake operated (Brake Pedal Switch)
    ; xxx1 = Brake operated (Brake Light Switch)
    066,3,Vehicle Speed,(specified)
    066,4,Switch Positions II
