Hey there.
I've been diagnosing my cruise control intermittent problem with the RAVE and according to the diagnostics, it's the Cruise ECU (cruise works very rarely. When it works I hear the clicks, when it doesn't, I get no clicks. Vacuum lines all replaced and good). Called British Pacific to get a new one and they say the part is no longer available. Does anyone else out there know of a new one I can purchase? Or am I stuck getting a used one from the salvage yard?


Thanks.

As rarely as they fail there is nothing wrong with one from the breakers.

Have long been dissatisfied with RR cruise control... positively agriculatural even by standards of the day when it was built...rather than the "ancient" vacuum actuation, I have have been snooping around to see if I can get a digital stepper motor type from another make and see if it can be adapted... far more precise... !

I was at the wrecking yard today and saw the Cruise ECU and module, I'll tell ya what, I'm going to go get these parts in the A.M. I don't know if there any good or not, there not all beat up or anything, I wonder if I can take a 12v battery from a drill to test for a click or something hmmmm. I'll get the power pin and ground from the Rave. Can't hurt to have some spare parts. If you want to PM me we can talk more .

Hey Scotti,
PM sent. I will have to say, in providing full disclosure, that i used some contact cleaner on all the connectors and put it back together. As of this moment, it's actually working. But I thnk having a spare is definitely a good idea.

Thanks!

Are you sure it is an ECU? A lot of good ECU's are replaced when the actual fault is in the Rotory coupling.
Well, how can you say anything is for sure when the fault is so intermittent? I followed the procedure in the RAVE and I started the procedure when the car was in "non-working" mode. Basically, the car passed every test with the ECU out of the circuit, and so the RAVE said it must be the ECU. Also, all the buttons other buttons on the steering wheel work perfectly. Wouldn't a rotary coupling failure also cause the other buttons to be intermittent?
I dunno... if anyone has other procedures for finding the fault here, I'm happy to listen.

Thanks!

Interesting, I find mine works quite well and far better than the one that was in our mid-90s VT Holden Commodore.
