    Default Cruise Control

    Hi all

    Just been for a little run to the Watercress line in Hampshire to take some piccys of Tornado, on the way back tried to engage the cruise control and nothing!. Must admit i haven't used it for a while, October at least as the wife normally drives the car and she won't use it. Read a thread about cleaning the contacts in the stalk so might try that first. Any other ideas? can't find any reference to it in the Haynes Manual.

    YES!, drive the car making sure you have used the brakes, tug outwards on the stalk Whilst pressing the set button at the SAME time, if it works, here you go looked back and found the link.

    lift the clutch up with your foot, it may be the clutch return spring.

    I need to check mine, the C/c turned itself off twice on the way to ipswich.

    it may need a new spring.

    The cruise control is somes reluctant to turn on with my 08 plate ELITE - every time so far has been the brake pedal switch. The problem has always cleared after dabbing the brake pedal.

    Thats not a problem, its a safety feature to check the switch on the brake.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
