Cruise control not illuminating
I have already posted this elsewhere on the forum but it may be in the wrong place;
Thanks for checking out this thread.
I have a 2012 2.2 DTEC in the UK. I first noticed this problem after taking out my boot/trunk light to see what the bulb fitting was, I don't know if it is related.
When attempting to engage the cruise control on the next day's commute the steering wheel buttons did not have the effect I would have expected, i.e. a target speed displayed on the dashboard. I then noticed that the small speedo cruise control symbol was not displayed. When I pressed the menu button which normally toggles between CC, limiter & normal it only light the LIM symbol or nothing.
Continual pressing has the same effect, just a toggle between LIM and nothing, it doesn't even take 2 presses to get to LIM as it would have done previously.
I have check (visually) the fuses indicated in the owners manual to be related to CC, fuse 19 & 20 under the drivers dash and they appear OK, I'm afraid I don't have a meter to test them.
Other points that may be relevant are that the car is due for a major service, it has done 72K and was serviced just over 12 months ago, and as this was a service before buying, it was probably the bearest of services.
I haven't noticed any fault indication (although I'm not sure where to look) or any other system not working.
I hope someone can help as this is the 1st breakdown/fault i have had with this car so far & I feel a little inadequate for not being able to solve it.
