M54 Cruise Control Success

Post by Brian H » Tue 03 Jul, 2012 18:55

After reading Shantybeaters post regarding the retrofit of cruise control to his S54 and other some other posts on the forum I decided to give cruise control a go on my car.

My car is a 2002 M54 3.0i build date nov 2001 with a fly by wire throttle.

Parts Ordered
  • 1 x Interface 65.71.8.380.054 - £40.88
    1 x Switch 61.31.8.360.926 - £55.95
    1 x Knob 61.31.1.390.968 - £5.94

    Total £123.32inc VAT
The fitment is the same as a S54 but I took some pics on the way.

The cruise control switch/knob & Interface ready for connection to the car



After removal of the bottom steering column cover the picture shows the the cruise control switch installed and cable routed.



Connector in place



Interface Installed



Hole cut in bottom steering column cover



Fully Installed



The job took about 1hr to complete and all works as it should :D

Have a look at the topic below, it is a different car but the same principle, a more involved job and a little more costly.
