Cruise control failure final report
Last Sept 16, I posted a message about the failure of the cruise control. The function tests of all elements were normal, but it would not engage. Took it to Dave Clark (former service manager for STL BMW), and he found that the cable from the cruise control module to the throttle body had frayed and finally broken. It runs inside a protective sheath, but after 64,000, miles it gave up the ghost.
