When your cruise control system is on the verge of failing, it starts to give you problems. Here are some of the problems you may see before it fails completely:

What is EPC? Do you mean EDC (Electronic Diff Lock)? I can't see the images (blocked at work). Both of those functions are part of the ABS, so that's the ECU I would be checking with VCDS first.

My car has had this problem for years but never got bad enough to try to fix. However, it seemed to happen more often as winter approached so I cleaned my car's cruise control's switch contacts last week. So far so good but a little too early to tell. See http://www.stuartdal...ntrol/index.php for more details.

If your VW’s cruise isn’t doing any of the things it should, and none of the notes apply, than odds are something is wrong.

Cruise Control Module or PCM – You may see a Check Engine Light when you have a faulty module or PCM. It will trigger a code that will help you determine where the problem is at in the system. If the module is the problem, check the ground and the power connections. If there is no problem there, you need to replace the module.

Might me a faulty stalk/bad connection, but it could also be potentially fixed by disabling it with VCDS, and then re-enabling it.

Your Volkswagen cruise control will not work if you have any of the following conditions:

Brake Pedal Switch – Put your foot on the brakes and make sure they work. If you have no brake lights, you may have a switch problem. The same is true for the parking brake. Since the cruise control is tied into the brake system, if it reads that the brakes are on, it will not engage.

it's not a abs fault though that fault will be from getting it remapped nothing to worry about glad you got to the bottom of it

So, if you have a 2-door 2002 GTI that is coded for selective unlocking (00064) add one to make it 00065 so that all doors unlock with one press of the unlock button.

This older system has a vacuum actuator that is connected to the throttle linkage, which is used to open and close the throttle in order to maintain the speed. The connections can be a ball chain, linkage or cable. The actuator pulls the linkage, which opens the throttle in order to increase speed if you come upon a hill. The actuator loosens the linkage for less throttle when going down a hill. You coast until you need more throttle.

Look at the fifth digit in the coding (CD player/changer):

Pete_W4 months ago

Look at the existing Soft. Coding. If you have selective unlocking (press the unlock button on the remote once to open the driver's door, twice to open all the doors) the last digit of your coding should be an even number. To make all doors unlock, add 1 to the coding.

If communication fails in any of the different sensors and systems, the entire cruise control will fail. When it fails, it will produce an engine trouble code. So if you’ve got a problem with your adaptive cruise control system, try pulling codes with your code reader.

Gary19964 months ago

If your Volkswagen has an electronic throttle control, it has an electronic cruise control. The switch on your steering column or steering wheel lets the Body Control Module (BCM) know what speed you want, and then the BCM sends that information on to the PCM. Your system may bypass the BCM, but the information needs to go to the PCM in order for the cruise control to work.

Well done Mr Jamesbaby!How much was the MAF? ECP or VW?

MechExp4 months ago

i can recall at least one incident with a MK4 when activation didn't work first time, and disabling/re-enabling cured it. perhaps a similar glitch occurs on the MK5? Other than that, check your clutch and brake switchs are operating correctly.

Vacuum Actuator – The diaphragm on the inside of the actuator can become damaged or there may be a leak in the vacuum system. It could be a bad control solenoid that is keeping the actuator from working properly. You will need to replace the unit.

When you press RESUME after you have decelerated, the control will take you back to your last selected speed. You may use the accelerate (+) or the decelerate (-) buttons to increase or decrease your select speed.

Here’s a recap of all the basic components of cruise control systems. Understanding how these components interact with your specific vehicle’s system will help you find your problems, so if you’re not sure about one of the components below, be sure to review the section above that applies to your VW.

I use my cruise control every day on my commute to work. In the past couple of months, after getting into the car and then trying to turn the cruise control, neither the light comes on or does it work. However if I turn the engine off and try it again it works. Anyone know what the problem could be?

This is a common problem on the Mk Vs. It is due to faulty contacts in the cruise control's switch module which is housed within the indicator stalk. The official VW fix is to replace the stalk (£120+) but apparently the problem can usually be fixed just by cleaning the switch's contacts. Easy job. 15-30 minutes.

Is your dub’s cruise control giving you trouble? Instead of Fahrvergnügen, are you getting annoyed with your cruise control system? Here’s some info that might help.

Volkswagen R32 cruise control computer fault

I used to have this issue where OCCASSIONALY the cruise control light wouldn't come on. It went away on it's own though, can only guess it was a sticky switch on the stalk because I always left it on.

Red4 months ago

The speed is selected by pushing the SET button on your steering wheel, and the vehicle should stay at this speed until you tap the brakes, accelerate for passing, choose a different speed or hit the OFF or CANCEL button.

Fuse – Check your owner’s manual to see where the fuse is located and check the fuse. Replace it with the proper fuse. If the new fuse blows as soon as you engage the cruise control system, you could have an electrical short. Use the wiring diagram and an ohmmeter/voltmeter to find the short.

Your Volkswagen cruise control is an important part of your driving experience, and if it starts to give you trouble, you want to get it repaired immediately so you can continue to enjoy driving.

Throttle Actuator – If your VW has an electronic throttle control, you may have a bad motor in the actuator. If it is not opening and closing the throttle, your engine is probably not running above an idle. You will also see the Check Engine Light, and there will be codes that indicate the throttle actuator motor or control system have problems.

Mary4 months ago

Cruise Control Switch – The switch is either on the steering wheel or on the column. If some of the buttons work, but others do not, it is probably a bad switch. If none of your buttons work, there could be a short in the wiring between the switch and the PCM. You can check this by removing the steering wheel. Before you do that, make sure you deactivate the air bag system by removing the fuse and waiting at least 15 minutes.

I have the mk5 dsg but my + button dont do anything when i flick the switch the green light comes on the dash but i have to push the - to start the cruise control and it will only speed up by the - button?? + button dont do anything so i have no way of slowing down. thanks for your comments
