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.
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...
Well, so here it is, my first (self inflicted) car problem.
Last week I parked the car and put a new car cover on it (garage is dusty). Two things weren't proper; interior light was on, and the driver's door wasn't fully shut. Both were not spotted due to the car cover. It was then locked from...
As many of you may know I am privileged to be stewarding a previous one lady owner M120 1998 W140.
This is just a little glimpse of how incredible these cars are when properly maintained. I have to thank Stryker and MAVA for guiding me through this over many years.
So almost 3 years ago I...
I was considering looking for a coupe and I can't recall what year the dissimilar metal issue went away. I know it was after 1996 because I replaced the one in my 96' because of the issue. I've heard 97' and later were good, but didn't know if that is correct or not. Does anyone know the...
I just picked up an S600 and I'm about to bring it back from death. I'll be posting in here for help and progress updates.
First thing, where can a brother get a service manual or anything on this car? It's a 95.
