BANK5,
Great, adding a video with all of this data will make it even easier for people to do this themselves!
To answer your questions:

Sensor - LR062658
We have been referencing the actual part numbers as they contain more data then the LRXXXX numbers
If you dig through this thread there are several modules that have been found to work. Always recommend starting with one that came with your year and model as that is a known working combination.

As you wander off of that you get into issues where GAP will have to reflash the sensor with new firmware or it just won't work and you've wasted time and money. the DLPA-9G786-AD I used has always worked and the HLPA version as well. There are the sensor from Jaguars such as GX73-9G768-AD that has been used successfully but requires the firmware flash from GAP.

Here is the FAQ from GAP where they literally cut and pasted this thread on to their page.



Bracket - LR060076 Bracket Bolts (x3) - RYG500160
I'm guessing you're asking what the bolts specs are? No one has bothered to figure it out as they are less then the cost of gas driving to the hardware store to fumble around and figure it out when the factory ones are another known good.

Steering Controls - LR087486
Yes several of us have or are runnning them. I made an entire thread on the install. They work fine, the buttons that were not on the 2014-16 versions don't work though, i.e LDW and speed limiter

Here is the thread:
Thanks for the quick reply!

Yeah the different sensor part numbers threw me off. So from what i can tell there are three:

DLPA-9G786-AD
HLPA-9G786-AD
FPLA-9G786-AD

Only one i can find on eBay at the moment is the FPLA type (not sure if it’s just eBay not showing me other ones from overseas.


Where’s a good place to find all these part numbers? I’ve got workshop manuals but having the parts catalog would be handy.

Nice.

ACC upgrade is very good.

Nice work, didn’t know of that thread. Euroactive are selling the 2018+ Steering controls with car systems converter. They also sell the upgraded window switch panel. Have you completed that one yet ?

That is the exact set up I used for the thread I posted above. I've since gotten a 2019 so I sold the kit before trading it in.

Yep, those all will work!

I'm sure there's a parts catalog out there but I haven't found it. JLR documentation is challenging at best.

[mention]BANK5 [/mention] I have an extra button back for yours if you are interested. I added ACC with the older style buttons and then a few months later bought the newer button packs and adaptor from [mention]Gpplutta [/mention] .

Let me know if you have an interest.

Hi everyone.
I just got my hands on a 2017 RR Sport Autobiography, will this upgrade work with it? And is there anyone in Toronto that can do it? Either dealership or private?
Thanks

Congrats on the purchase. Unfortunately the 2017's were the first year of the new style of network bus and requires different software to work with it. Please email GAP and ask them when they will be able to support post 2016 Range Rover Sports for CCF functionality. They are working on it but there is no date of availability. It would be helpful for them to see there is a demand. Thank you.

Here is their contact page.

Awesome! Glad it worked for you, and an analog dash no less. Great find on the used sensor. I spent about a month looking for one before giving in and buying a new one.

Interesting it required 50 miles to calibrate. GAP warned me it could take a while so I made a lot of effort to set things up just like their procedure in the tool's manual for the L322 ACC calibration and it went rather quickly.

I've done several 6-7 hour trips since the install and love it. I could see if you live in a city with aggressive drivers it may not be of much value but any long distance driving is much more relaxing with the car taking care of the ups and downs in speed when others are around.

Interestingly enough I just test drove a new Tesla Model S as I have almost every year to see how they are coming along (the new adaptive suspension on the Raven upgrade is incredible) and wasn't wildly impressed with the "full self driving" feature. Don't get me wrong Tesla's is a million times more complex and feature rich (I loved the visual display of what it saw) but in the end the driving experience wasn't far and away better for me. The auto lane change felt a bit gimmicky and the auto on-off ramp was nice but not "wow". It'll get there with future updates no doubt though

Thanks for the feed back!
What years will this work on? 2013 possible? And which models?

Hey @jettlag , do you still have those buttons?

Double confirming that the FPLA-9G786-AD is a plug and play one? Won’t have issues etc

I can’t leave any of my cars alone and the RRS wasn’t going get a pass either. I wanted the Adaptive Cruise control (ACC) option on my RRS but found it to be a fairly rare option. It seemed much more common on the fullfat Rover when I was looking. Anyway after I found mine it had all the options I wanted with the exception of the elusive ACC.

Based on previous experiences “coding” my BMWs I figured it could be retrofitted as long as there was a software solution. I put It on the back burner as I tweaked the other items I wanted to address but once I wrapped those up I saw a post about a guy in Turkey that could swap out the analog dash for the digital dash. Also on his Instagram page it showed him doing the ACC retrofit as well. So I knew the software was out there but after messaging him he was cagey about the details even after I told him I’d pay for his time/assistance. Realizing that was a dead end I started digging around on the old interwebz and found some Land Rover Disco 3 and 4 owners in the UK had been attempting to do the retrofit as well.

The Disco 3 and 4 are last generation technology but a small company normally doesn’t stray to far as they evolve so there was good information to gleam from their efforts. A little closer to home on the fullfat Rover UK forum they have a retrofit list with the parts needed for ACC on the L405. Good old parts commonality comes through again. The L405 (2013 onward Range Rover) and the L494 (2014 onward Range Rover Sport) are based on the same core design and share a ton of parts and systems. So I had the list of hardware needed but that was always the easy part. The UK guys seemed to use hacked versions of the factory SDD software but there wasn’t a lot of info available on the web and there was conflicting information on it as well. As I looked around I ran across the GAP diagnostic IID tool and it had access to the Configuration Control Files. That is how JLR provides functionality to the different options on their vehicles. They even had the calibration procedure for the last generation‘s ACC.

I emailed them and told them what I was looking to do. They looked into it and replied that they didn’t see why it wouldn’t work But they had not done it yet on the L405/494. So I ordered their tool and the parts needed.
This is awesome, I have been looking for a 14-17 L405 and I will not get another vehicle without ACC and they are hard to find in 14-17 especially 6 cyl trucks . Nice Thanks

I understand why you would like the ACC especially on long vacation road trips... But I just have a problem trusting any electronic like that because I am a control freak... hate flying, etc... But that is a personal problem of mine :)... My 14.5' is wired up for the plug and play hardware/upgrade for sure but ACC is probably the only 2-3 options that mine didn't come with. It's easy enough to install if you aren't afraid to take off the whole front bumper(s)... About a 3 hour job your first time doing so...

Does anyone know if this can be done on a 2018 Range Rover Sport HSE TD6?
When going through the digital display settings, I see that the adaptive cruise control option is available but "grayed out" meaning I can not select it. My steering wheel Digital controls also do not have the "+" and "-" highlighted/lit up.

I am wondering if there is anyway to activate it?

I have the lane keep assist but it only shakes the steering wheel when I go out of bounds in my lane and does not correct the steering itself to put you back.

I believe I do have radar sensor and a camera facing forward and wonder if I need to just add a few more pieces of equipment?

Any ideas?

Thank you!

Finally got to finish this install and unfortunately it is not working properly due to the firmware on the radar sensor. I purchased the radar sensor from a forum member that had it working on a 2016 & had GAP flash the Jag based radar sensor to work on his. So with that being said I have contacted Patrick at GAP & he sent me a updated firmware. I just need to get it installed on the tool & try completed this. I posted the faults I was getting with the incorrect firmware on the radar sensor FYI.

Another update on my ACC retrofit saga. Patrick from GAP sent me a custom file to update firmware on CCM. Completed installation & then selected calibration. I am getting the flashing icon but unfortunately it keeps failing the calibration. Idk what could be wrong. I drive above 35 mph, no vehicles in front of me, straight road & fair amount of road signs. Checked faults & shows calibration fault. Possibly the radar sensor is not aligned properly in bracket? Really at my last straw with this. Any suggestions @Gpplutta ? Going to pull the front bumper & check sensor alignment.

Figured it out & now it functions correctly! My sensor adjustment was off slightly. It has to be within .5 of a degree and mine was .8. Corrected adjustment, completed calibration & all good after cycling ignition.
