    When I bought my current Audi I couldn't get the cruise control to work!

    So I carried out the following with VagC
    om

    [Select]
    [01 - Engine]
    [Login - 11]

    Enter 11463 to activate cruise control
    [Do It!]

    This will activate it if it isn't already
    !

    After doing this it still didnt seem to work for me!! After a while I noticed that I tended to drive with my foot slightly on the clutch. I then took my foot
    well away from the clutch and tried again, this time the cruise control went on It hasnt been a problem since, this may have been my issue right from the start.

    Slightly depressing the clutch or the brake switches the cruise off or in my case stop it going on.

    Sorry if this is stating the obvious. but .... you have got the stalk pulled right towards you have you? Pushing it away from you to its furthest point will fully disable the system.

    going back to James point.... have you tried driving at 20mph+ (30mph on some earlier models) and then making sure the stalk is in the position closer to the steering wheel (it only has two "static" positions, towards / away from the steering wheel)..... then press the "set" button on the end of the stalk and look for the little greenish colour speedo/clock icon just above the DIS....

    A full scan using VAG-COM would be a good idea too.

    If it comes up with faults like "clutch switch..." then you'll have your cause.

    Was the cruise control factory fitted (check the option codes sticker in the boot and service book)? If not maybe the steering column electronics haven't been coded correctly?
