Cruise Control- what am I not doing

Post by Laddersuk » Thu Jan 10, 2019 8:35 pm

Hi everyone, my 2014 218i has Cruise Control but I’m damed if I can work it.
I switch it on, the green dot registers my speed but nothing, the car just slows.
Appreciate any suggestions to what I’m not doing right.
Many thanks

Are you sure you're turning on Cruise Control, and not LIM by mistake?

Definitely pressing the correct button, I’ve double checked that. I have 3 buttons, res, lim and the cruise one.
Thanks

It's 2 button presses to activate it.

I usually press bottom Cruise button (orange marker appears on speedo) then 'RES' (marker turns from orange to green) and it's active.

Or you can press Cruise (orange), and then the speed adjust toggle (up or down) to turn it green/on.

Hei guys, I'm new here.
That's exactly What I'm doing as well. When you press the Cruise button, you get a small orange LED next to the current speed. That's "stand-by mode". it's waiting for cofirmation: either press RES or slide the turning button next to RES up.

hope this helps.
