Are you talking about the loom that came with the cruise control stalk?, if so mine only has three labels on it, they are red/yellow=K.A.2, white=K.A.9, blue=K.A.1, hope this helps!

Thanks for the bl00dy quick responses guys!!!!

I think I have it sorted, well the light turns on and off with the stalk, the engine runs and the indicators work.

Callum - your wires are correct, although mine are all single coloured!

thanks again,

J.

Ok so I now have a couploe of problems...

Firstly the EPC light is on, will this stop the cruise from working? I know theres a fix which I will try later.

Also I now have OIL SENSOR! WORKSHOP warning appear on the dash, have a mis cabled something?

When I checked with Vag-Com I've got these errors:

Control Module Part Number: 1J0 920 926 J

Component and/or Version: KOMBI+WEGFAHRSP VDO V20

Software Coding: 05410

Work Shop Code: WSC 00000

Additional Info: WVWZZZ1JZ4D020519 VWZ7Z0C8239641

2 Faults Found:

00562 - Sensor for Oil Level/Temperature (G266)

30-10 - Open or Short to B+ - Intermittent

00667 - Ambient Temperature Signal

30-00 - Open or Short to B+

Any ideas anyone?

<edited because I wrote rubbish......>

As for the oil sensor error - no idea I'm afraid, but I would expect that if you'd mis-connected the cruise loom then both the cruise control would not work and a host of other engine related errors would appear.

Chris,

Would the EPC light stop the Cruise from working though? I've seen the fix on your site, I'll have a go tomorrow when it's light at fixing it.

Ah ok so can anyone confirm the following cablings correct?

Theres a black lead that comes out or the loom half way down, this I connected to the fuse box, fuse 5.

Then at the end of the loms theres the following wires:

Red

Blue

2 yellows joined to a single connector

white

I put them in the black connector in the following pins

ka 2 = red

ka 9 = white

ka 3 = yellow

ka 1 = blue

Thanks in advance,

J.

Doh!

Sorry I misread your post (must slow down a bit....) as I was referring to an ESP error not EPC!!

The EPC light refers to a problem with the electronic throttle system, which could conceivably be due to a wiring 'fault' from the cruise installation. Are you able to look at the cruise switch outputs using VAG-COM? From memory the petrol engines all seem to use block 066 of the engine module which will show a row of '0's and '1's in the RH column relating to the state of each switch function (go to basic settings of the engine module IIRC, then type in 066 in the block field or scroll up to block 066).

As you operate each function of the switch you should see one of the '0's change to a '1' so if you find a switch function that does not work (ie gives a change in the output) then this may give a clue to a wiring fault.

Another common EPC problem can be caused by a faulty brake/clutch pedal switch so it is possible that the wiring for either of these could have been disturbed during the cruise installation.

Btw, your pin connection numbers look OK (see below)

Cheers Chris.

Looks like I've got some work for tomorrow to do then [:D]

On the plus side my lazy ignition switch seems to have cured it self...

I have had a similar "OIL" warning - it turned out to be one of the multi-plugs at the bulkhead was not refitted properly. This also brought on the ABS warning, which might be similar to your EPC warning.

IIRC, it was the white block, though it was a diesel I had this on, so yours may differ.

J,

Your climate control is fed by the same fuse as the cruise control (5) so that could be significant. You did remember to refit the fuse?

The dodgy connection at fuse 5 is sometimes caused if you use a scotchlock, rather than the proper connector. Wire's a bit thin for scotchlocks, y'see. If you used the VW bits, dunno why that would happen.

Glad it's sorted.
