    Default Cruise control not working in 5th gear??

    Hi all, as some of you may know my gearbox went up the spout last week and I have had a recon one fitted along with a new clutch. All is great with it, but I noticed tonight that the cruise control doesn't work when in 5th gear. It works fine and dandy in all other gears apart from 5th. It worked fine before I had the work done, any ideas why it would work fine apart from in 5th? Will be taking it back to the garage nxt week, but am curious as to why this is happening.
    Cheers guys!

    I would have thought if it was going to "play up" it would do it in all gears. Maybe the switch in the clutch pedle has been moved.?

    Doesn't make much sense unless it is the clutch pedal switch not engaging again when in 5th,,,, weird or what?

    Does it do it at higher speeds too? Mine won't engage if I'm driving slowly in 5th. Say about 30mph it won't come on. Higher speed it does though.

    Revs need to be at 1100rpm or higher, and road speed at 31mph or higher, for the CC to work

    Not on the V6 CDTI, you can take it right down to 15mph and 700rpm
    It can't be engaged in 1st gear though

    Just make sure you press the brake pedal before use, to activate
