    Tried pulling stalk towards me and down and nothing happened. I'm thinking it hasn't been coded properly, I might see if can pop up there Monday and get him check it but he's a very stubborn angry arrogant type so doubt he be happy or even discuss it with me :(

    Tell him to shape up. Tell him that he needs to code the engine and the steering wheel.

    You paid the fella to do a job, so it is simply, he should do it!!
    It does not matter if you paid £2,£20 or £200, he needs to do his job properly! Seems like he is an incompetent fool!
    Mate, seriously, if you don't mind the travel I would try to sort it out for you.

    TBH guys I would remove pin 13 & stick an oscillator like I used for telecoms wiring, on this, to trace it through, but probably runs to ecu directly, some cars dont even have the blocks under that panel, seen this on a number of cars, but I'd love to challenge the car lol.

    I'm lost a bit as I thought it had accepted the coding, obviously not.

    what if the guy that coded the cruise had only coded the engine and not anything else? that would stop it from working

    Yes that's right steering wheel not instruments;

    Steering
    The 2nd to last digit changed to 4 (assuming it has OBC too)

    Engine Module
    log in to engine 01
    select Coding II - 11
    enter 11463 in to the coding

    He said that you were at fault for it not working because you bent the plug? LOL. At least its working.

    You don't have the lower cowling? What do you have attached as the lower cowling, lol?

    I've got 50+ non-cruise cowlings, you could buy one from me for £10 and cut it to size... save you even more money ;)

    I think we should setup a plastic recycling center for non cruise trims lmfao

    I wouldnt wanna bodge the cutout for the stalk, its got a nice kinda rubbery coating on that you can smudge as such to cover any surface marks from keys etc, cant imagine what a dremel may do to it, for the small cost they are, in grand scheme of things, I'd want the perfect fit.

    I agree, perfect fit is a must!

    Also like the idea of a plastic recyling centre... If only they were like scrap metal and we could weigh them in haha.

    Glad to hear you're all okay mate.
