Re: broken cruise control cable
I wondering if anyone has ever experienced the C/control cable breaking before? The cable is on a 2001 Lt with 80k.
Last week while traveling to Daytona, about halfway through GA the cruise stopped working. I really didn't realize how much I used the cruise until I didn"t have it anymore. While in Daytona, I stopped by the local dealer. They were great, at the last minute the shop manager worked me in. They informed me that the issue was in the C/control main control box but due the time of the day and no parts on hand. (AND no $$ out of my pocket) I had to ride old school back home.
YESTERDAY (22nd) I made my way over to Dave's (Saddleman) house. With-in a couple hours, problem fixed. Dave even had the parts on hand :-).
A BIG THANK YOU TO DAVE.......THE BMW RIDERS FRIEND.........
Dave stocks cruise control cables? Wow! This is the first time I have heard of one of those breaking. Did it appear as though it was defective from the factory?
