Re: Help! No cruise control
The cruise control on Tarkus (00 LT) went out. I checked and adjusted the clutch micro switch and checked the micro switch at the throttle body rail and brakes. I also checked and adjusted the cable free play at the adjuster downstream of the controller and at the throttle grip IAW the manual values. Nothing worked. I then (upon the advise of a tech at BMWMCGrand Rapids) adjusted the free play at the throttle grip to make it quite loose- way more than the book values. I had cruise again. YMMV.
