///M Cruise Control - Myths & Legends Busted - DIY HOW TO!!

Post by E85Chef » Tue May 09, 2017 12:48 am

The first owners should be shot for omitting the £150 option of the cruise control. Who in their right mind pays £45k for a car and won't spend £150 for a cruise control?

The same f***er who also didn't spec PDC... or bluetooth :headbang:

ECU end is easy. The LCM is the worst part. Only because I couldn't get the loom past the dash so was working behind.

TBH I think you could use the same connectors I used for the ECU to connect to the LCM which would negate cutting the two wires. You would just cut the CC loom before fitting making much easier to do.

Excuse my ignorance but is the LCM easy to identify? Which panels/trims do I need to remove to get to it?

LCM = Light control module, which is you light switch. Two credit cards between dash trim and dash surrounding LCM and insert screwdriver between the two cards. That will easily remove trim without risk of damage.

More than happy to surpervise if you want to give it a go but want some support.
