Just purchased my '93 325is (manual trans) last week and am working out a few kinks.
(Electrical gremlins in the rear lights, tail and brake - but that's not why I'm posting)
I have one that I haven't found anything specific on and wanted to run it by y'all.
The Cruise Control is not activating on the highway (~70mph).
- I checked the fuses and just changed the CC fuse for a new good one just in case.
- I also check ALL the other fuses
- I pulled up on the brake and clutch to make sure they weren't tripping the CC module to turn off
- The brake lights work and go off when I'm not pressing the pedal - so I'm assuming the brake sensor is not tripping it.
OK, here is my theory/question.
Should this car allow the starter to turn over with the clutch out and in gear? Mine does.
I'm wondering if the clutch switch is stuck in the closed/depressed position which is allowing this and not allowing the CC to activate.
Any other thoughts on the CC would be appreciated as well.
I've pushed it, pulled it, clicked it, held it for a couple seconds - nothing.
I commute 110 miles/day so I'd like to get it working
