    Hi all,

    I'm new to this so bear with me! I've just bought a B7 A4 170 s line estate. It has the cruise control stalk fitted but I've fiddled with it at various speed but the cruise control does not seems to work. Any ideas? Does it need programming maybe? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

    I assume you're pressing the SET button?

    Broken clutch and brake light switches can stop the cruise from working, best getting it scanned for faults.

    Welcome.

    Thanks for reply,

    Yeah pressed all the buttons and positions of the stalk but no joy. I'll have a look at the brake and clutch light switches. Cheers.

    Thinking about dpf and egr valve removal followed by remap, any thoughts?! Waiting for local specialist to get back to me with a price.

    Guys have pretty much covered up all bases, clutch switch is very common.

    also you need to be going a certain speed for it to activate

    19mph :)

    I wouldn't remove your DPF as they're now checked on MOT.

    Its only a visual examination so nothing to fret over. They do check to see if the DPF cannister is present (if it been deleted the proper way the cannister should be kept) but there is no way to determine if it has a filter inside or not and the fact that most Audis are buried well in behind the engine and down the bulkhead they will be doing well to actually view all of the DPF cannister.

    My point was that if the DPF was totally removed and a pipe welded in then yes its possible to tell its been removed?
