    Cruise control retrofit

    Hi,
    I just received my cruise control stalk and a cable that comes with it.
    Now I need some help. I know that after the installation it must be
    enabled with VCDS, which I have. What I don't have are the wiring
    Instructions and VCDS instructions.
    Any help will be much appreciated, but I have a feeling that Spike will
    probably come up with wiring instructions or a link to it, so thanks in
    advance Spike, and timmus might have advice based on his vast
    knowledge, so thanks to you too, Tom, again in advance.

    Regards,

    Boris

    Cruise Control Adaptation
    ================

    Log into Engine ECU (Controller 1) using VAGCOM
    Login Code 11463
    Turn off ignition
    Turn ignition back on
    Login into Controller 1 – check for the G in the controller information (G means CC is active)
    Go to measurement block 22 and operate the CC switch – should see from 0 change to 1 etc

    Cruise Control Stalk Wiring
    =================

    Stalk Stalk pin No White connector near ECU ECU pin No
    Blue Pin 2 Blue/Black Pin 7 of white connector Pin 45 on ECU
    Red/Yellow Pin 3 Blue/Red Pin 8 of white connector Pin 44 on ECU
    Black/Yellow Pin 4&7 White Pin 10 of white connector Pin 14 on ECU
    White Pin 5 Black/Red Pin 9 of white connector Pin 46 on ECU

    Stalk Stalk pin No Brake Switch
    Blue Pin 6 Red/Green wire on Pin 2 of brake light switch (this links to the 12 volt supply from fuse 30 in the fuse box)


    This is what I gleamed from numerous different posts on here somewhere, no single post seemed to have all of the information in one place, hence I put this together
    Hope it helps

    If the White connector is not present (as it wasn't on a TDI that I have just fitted cruise control too) then you will need to go to the Engine ECU connector directly and there were no wires on the pins above, so had to do a little micro soldering to make the necessary connections. The white connector is certainly easier to connect to if it is present

    Cheers,

    Update

    I installed the hardware over the weekend, fiddly but not to difficult. photos taken, will post when finished.
    As I'm doing a connection on the main ECU connector, I need to remove some pins, not having proper tools for that, I ordered them and as soon as they arrive, I'll finish it of. Can't wait.

    I had mine fitted by an Audi dealer many years ago - recommended. Out of interest which stalk are you using? I have read that there is an old and new version. I have the old one, can anyone provide a link to the new one? - thanks in advance.

    For reference, Timmus posted a comparison pic of the two stalks - http://www.a2oc.net/forum/showthread...091#post183091

    So, mine is the second one in Tom's post. It's the same as in my first Tdi with DIS, with one button at the side.
