Forum rules

When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot.

Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.

Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

When I acquired the car I was surprised that it even had cruise control. Turns out it doesn't, for the time being at least!

I can't seem to get it to work. The buttons on the stalk don't do anything. I have already swapped the stalk over to a replacement (although I don't know for sure that the replacement stalk was any good). Any ideas anyone?

Is this a TCS or Non TCS car?

As they have completely different systems.

Check all the switches on the clutch and brake pedal, they are usual culprits.

What we need are more people who specialise in the impossible

Does a 1992 car have the electrical system or the old vacuum one?

That depends on whether it has TCS or not.

Non-TCS is a vacuum system, so check the vacuum hoses above the pedals and around the vac pump (can't remember where that is located). After that it could be a split bellows on the pedal actuator, or leaking pedal sensors, or the vac pump itself.

TCS system could only be the pedal sensors, as any other fault will light the dashboard up like a christmas tree.
