Cruise control on my Vectra does not work
« on: 06 July 2019, 08:10:11 »

2008 Vectra 1.8 SRi petrol manual
I bought this car 2 weeks ago. I took it on the M4 yesterday, clicked on the cruise, but nothing happened. I thought on a canbus car with an electonic throttle connection there was nothing that could go wrong with the cruise control. Any suggestions?

Does the light on dash come on when you depress the button on the stalk?

No. I did not see it yesterday. Furthermore, it does not come on when I switch on the ignition, as the handbook says it should.

Not helping your problem, but I can't remember the last time any motorway was clear enough for long enough to use cruise control.

If you are offended by anything I post, sorry. Just thought I'd get that in now.

I frequently set cruise .... most often through speed cameras but I do use it on the motorways when I'm towing.  :y

Clutch and brake pedal switches working correctly?

Did you read the instructions?

Will need plugging in to establish that it is activated and working...

I'm a big fan and always use it on the motorway.   :y

It's especially useful through roadworks where there are average speed cameras.  :)

I had an old Merc that had a speed limiter and I wish that more cars had them, as that was also useful through roadworks or in areas where camera vans hang out.  :y

Conversely I'm not keen using the limiter on my Merc  ..... don't like the feeling of nothing as you get to the set max speed  :-\

I've yet to drive a car with adaptive cruise ....

My Tata also has one .....which I never use.

I tend to use the fleshy bony thing that has been attached to my ankle since birth. I believe it is called a 'foot' and has enough flexibility of movement to allow both upward (less speed) and downward (more speed) changes. :)

My fleshy bony thing tends to get a bit heavy at times and the interface with the lump of jelly like ECU at the top can be unreliable!  ::)

Hence I need all the help I can get!  :D

The very same fleshy bony implement can be used for the purpose of walking or kicking the dog up the arse when it shits in the corner. :)
