According to Starfinder, fuse 23 in the front fuse box directly feeds the cruise control stalk its power. That stalk simply switches 12v from the fuse and feeds it to various EGAS pins depending on which direction it's pushed. Everything else is controlled by the EGAS module in the coffin box.
Ok, here we go:
Latest version: 1405457132
Middle version: 1405457232
Earliest version: 1405451532
The two earlier versions supercede to the latest. And yes, 7132 is later than 7232. However both say to use up old stock first, which means there won't be significant differences between them.
From what I've seen elsewhere, cruise is the first thing to not work if mismatched EGAS modules are used in cars. Maybe a safety thing?
There are a bunch of all versions on eBay. Some are priced ridiculously high, but you can get one for well under $100. EGAS modules aren't high failure items unless bad throttle body wiring takes them out, and then they don't work at all.
Cruise control not working might be simply the brake light switch, despite no brake light problems. Just replaced in a new to me 1999 S320 and cruise started working after switch was replaced. Had similar issue in my 1995 S320, but speedo also stopped working at the same time, which was caused by left front speed sensor.
The brake light switch is located beneath the instrument panel near the brake pedal. I generally don't recommend throwing parts at a problem, but for the $15 cost of a part that is commonly fails, it is worth a try imo.
On my 1996 S500 Coupe, I've had the dreaded vibration, I haven't found a comprehensive list of issues to check so I'm trying to compile one of the things I should check with a mechanic friend.
Anything I should add to this list or caveats?
Also, is 150Nm the torque spec for the wheel bolts...
Greetings! I've been offered a lovely 1997 500SEL. I don't know anything about this model. I was hoping to get advice and an idea about any possible hidden issues or potential time bombs associated with this model. I am a proud owner of diesel w123 and looking to get a second car. Any input...
Hi everyone -- This is something that's been driving me nuts for the better part of a year now. It's just enough of a nuisance that I want it resolved, but not enough that really impacts the functionality of the car.
When I turn the car on from cold -- actually cold, as in sitting all night in...
Hopefully a quick and easy question -- how many 600SECs are still out there?
Not S600, 600SEC. These 3 numbers and 3 letters were on the trunk lid of the C140 made only in 1992 and early in 1993. TopGear episode featuring the 600SEC:
After that, MB decided to do away with the SE, SEL...
I just replaced my wiper blades. I got the drivers side fairly easy but passenger side was not intuitive to this mechanical engineer. After viewing the following video I was done in 5 minutes. Once you know the trick it is simple!!
I searched the BW archives and saw others had quite the...
