Top work Brian. I'll copy this to the knowledge base, and if you are happy I'll publish it in the Wiki area too
I have PMed Brian with this but if anyone else has the answer I'd be grateful please. I have the interface and switch but cannot find the little three pin white flying socket that plugs on to the interface. I am assuming that it simple hangs around under the dash somewhere but I have looked everywhere it seems, and there's only one 'free' connector and that's black with more than three connections. Where should I look please? Thanks... 52 plate 2.2 Sport M54 engine
swamper and board have also recently assembled the required parts...
Their cars are not pure fly by wire - the connections are partly mechanical I believe.
Ah, I see from your profile you have a 2002 2.2 Sport!
No problem, thanks for the thought.
Replied to your message.
Seen it, thanks.
Really want to do the CC retrofit to my 2006 Z4MR. Understand that it's a little more involved than the earlier models which can just get away with plugging in the stalk. Would these instructions here be appropriate? If anyone can advise where to get the bits from, that would be much appreciated! TIA.
I would suggest contacting Soper BMW Parts for the parts list. Certainly should be able to tell you what you need and hopefully supply at a good price... http://zroadster.org/forum/threads/welcome-to-soper-of-lincoln-bmw-parts.3137/
My son has a Z4M Coupé and Phil Crouch at CPC Amersham did his cruise for him. It does involve breaking into the loom somewhere near the bottom end of the steering column on that car (S54 engine). HTH
Thanks guys, much appreciated. Will give Soper a call. Heading up to Scotland for August bank hol. Would be great to have the CC for that run!
I have fitted the cruise control in my Z3 and it works well, but the light indicating cruise control does not come on does anybody know how to activate this part of the system?
I don't think there is a light for the cruise on Z3s.
There definitely is, I removed the speedo console and shined a light from behind to see what the lamp holes that didn't have lamps in them were for and the middle one shows a cruise control symbol. So I put a lamp in to that one but it doesn't come on at any time. I think maybe there is an option in the computer that needs to be activated for this to work?
Well if you find out please let us know as I don't think anyone has it working. Would be good if we can find out.
Just fitted mine on Sunday and no light. 2001 2.2i. Thought it a bit odd myself, but it works,...
Lol will do. I'm trying to source an OBD2 to USB cable for the BMW so that I can get in to the options settings in the computer with my laptop.
No luck so far as I don't think all OBD2 to USB cables are the same. If you know of a source for one I would appreciate that information also.
Would this do the trick.
