Retrofit Cruise Control

Recommended Posts

Guys - great site/forum - very interesting indeed - have loitered here since its birth and previously benefitted from Loren's advice on the Rennlist pages.


As all the circuitry for the OBC is included on all cars and it takes little more than fitment of the right switchgear to utilise it, is the same true of cruise control?

Do I just need to fit the right switch and call in a favour from my local dealer to activate cruise control?

In which case, what do I need?

I have a 2000 C4 Coupe Tip with OBC - so three stalks on the steering column.

It is not that easy - but someone may do it on an e-gas car sooner or later with enough time to complete the project.

Peter Smith tried. The cruise control works via the DME. Peter hooked up a cruise control stalk directly to the DME while the car was on the lift and running as a test. He used an e-gas Boxster as our DME is easy to get to since it is in the rear trunk. He was getting faults and thought it has to do with the instrument cluster. Then he ran out of time to figure out what was wrong.

If he ever has the time to figure it out then you will still need to run wires from the DME to the steering column to hook up the cruise control stalk. Jeff
