With the adaptive cruise control system, it interacts with both the throttle and the brake as it accelerates and decelerates. Other than tracing all of the wiring everything has been checked at least once. Their instructions typically read something like this: How to remove the engine Open the hood. Adaptive Cruise Control Function and Diagnosis The adaptive cruise control system does more than maintain a speed, it also has the ability to determine traffic flow and distances in order to adjust the speed to meet the circumstances. Within the first 3-4 months the car computer system locked up while I was driving.
This happened at 6:45pm after the dealership closed. Luckily I had my foot firmly on the brake which prevented me from lurching forward into the oncoming highway traffic passing in front of me. If the module is the problem, check the ground and the power connections. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Module Master to come through! My first reaction was to push on the brakes harder. The dealer stated that the failure occurred due to an intentional computer program, which prevents simultaneous braking and accelerating in order to prevent strain to the drive train. It recovered back to normal responsiveness after hard braking for at least five seconds in the first incident and about three second in the second. So, with standard cruise control already confirmed, which models have the more advanced adaptive cruise control? I then started the car, pulled out of the parking lot, and put the blinker on to make a right hand turn.
Cruise control not working Greetings. I have a newer car and there are some omissions but it's still better than the Haynes. After all, the Cruze does not. I checked the fuses, changed the brake light switch and cleaned the contacts as suggested with no positive results, my cruise still doesn't work. Call toll free to order or place your order online via our secure checkout system. If some of the buttons work, but others do not, it is probably a bad switch.
They diagnosed it as a bad steering column. This behavior can be easily replicated and demonstrated, though it does not occur every time. I thought I was imaging it, but then immediately the car began racing wildly like it was going 80mph. Is there anything that can be done to stop vw from making faulty parts and charging an arm and a leg? The drive by wire is part of the cruise control. Since my brake lights work, cross the brake light switch off the list of problems. This is because of the immobilizer.
After several minutes it unstuck. It also monitors the transmission in order to determine which gear it is in, and it knows what position the brake pedal is in as well. We provide incredibly reasonable prices on quality parts. The contact stated that the vehicle abnormally accelerated. So I'm at a total loss.
Perhaps someone with some experience with cruise control troubleshooting in this forum can chime in. Then the vehicle decelerates to the proper speed. It will trigger a code that will help you determine where the problem is at in the system. The vehicle was not further repaired. And the module is a silver box behind the headlight switch. I feel though that if it is brought up to you that my voice will be heard, because when I call the volkwagen customer service and complaints I get nowhere.
Now currently the sterling lock is gone bad on the car again. Pinging is currently not allowed. Dealership was contacted, but it was not indicated what caused the problem. It is a laser-based system that has a front mounted laser that continuously monitors and reads the distance in front of the vehicle in order to determine whether the speed needs to be adjusted. Unfortunately that too has been checked.
Be sure to tune in to the Pacific Volkswagen blog for more Volkswagen guides in the future. Adaptive Cruise Control works in just the same way as your current cruise control, then adds to the functionality. This can be observed by looking at the display which shows the speed at which the cruise control is set, as well as the acceleration of the car. Get the Bentley manual, they have wiring diagrams in the back. The car was towed to the local vw dealership. Volkswagen is on a major coverup to avoid a massive recall of several of the vehicles they knowingly are putting drivers at risk.
