Cruise Control

My cruise control likes to kick off in the rolling hills. Is there an adjustment or does it have to do with the hard throttle on this 03? I've yet to update the cables thanks to a months long wait on Chicago BMW..............

Most of us would rather be ruined by praise than saved by criticism.

Re: Cruise Control

I would also suspect cables. As you know, the controller releases when there is a lot of counterforce on the throttle - you cancel cruise by forcing throttle close - so that excessive friction could fool it.

I assume your battery voltage is OK, right?

Regarding Chicago: you get what you pay for. It is well known that Chicago maintains low prices by not stocking parts - you have to wait until they get your order in. If you are in no hurry, that is fine.

When I want something fast, I order from Bob's BMW (UPS ground delivers from them next day into my area) or from Max.
