Cruise control coding

Recommended Posts

With my 530d being an ex.police car it didn't come with the luxury of cruise control. I have the stalk and have removed steering wheel and checked connections. The plug for cc stalk I'd there so have assumed I don't need to change the slip ring

I've done lots or searching on tinterweb but am.struggling to be able to work out how to code it to work.

I have latest software and think I will be best using ncs expert. I understand I need to.change the szl coding by changing coding on .man and add $540 to the options and check cc as aktiv but stiĺl doesn't work.

My.clocks don't have the icon around speedo for cc but understand I can still get cc

Anyone have any advice?

Did you ever manage to get the cruise control to work?  I'm in the same boat as you. I've bought the stalk, but not yet fitted.

I know this was a while ago, but can you remember how you got it to work?

 

I fitted my stalk today, and have bought a cable and software from Jimmy.  Installing it all now, ready for a go tomorrow. But I am a COMPLETE novice!

 

ANY help gratefully received!!!

No, not got it working yet. Have decided against trying it myself. 

 

It's booked in at a specialists on Friday. 

 

Can you recall exactly what you had to change to get it working?

Can't exactly recall but from memory just plug in stalk and then enable cruise option in ncs expert (but can't remember exactly where it was) 

 

Not e60/e61 specific but same principal

Whilst you are getting coding done also nice touch to get the digital Speedo enabled on the dash too

I bought Carly thus week, and have now got the digital speedo.  Also recoded the button in the footwear to open the glass on the tailgate, so I can now finally get that open to fix a few issues in the tailgate!

 

Getting there......

Well, the BMW specialists couldn't help today.  They said the instrument panel 'hasn't been coded before'. Not quite sure what they mean by that.

 

I 'coded' it with Carly this week to get the digital speedo on the display.  Could that have caused a problem?

 

Anyway, they say they need to download the latest software for the instrument panel, and then update the car, which will take a couple of hours. Then, they can try to code the cruise control.

 

I'm not convinced....

 

So, wondered if there are any NCS Expert experts in the Gloucester area that would like a go?

 

If not, I might just take the stalk out and forget the whole thing... :-(
