Ducato x250 Cruise control problem

Hi Everybody, Went for a spin the other day and as we were on a nice straight road and clear travelling at about 50 I switched on the Cruise Control and pushed stick forward and released and lifted foot off accelerator and immediately started slowing down, Tried it again same thing, little green Speedo light was on in instrument panel so switched off and tried again, Same thing happened, pulled over checked book which confirmed I was doing it correctly, Then I saw that a message should come in instrument panel telling me Cruise Control was switched on, Pretty sure I hadn't seen anything so tried it again, def no message, so checked fuse AOK but it still doesn't work.

I am hoping beyond hope that the extremely knowledgeable members of this forum will be able to help, Please.




Ok I should have known, There is another thread on same subject, Sorry every body I will check everything and let you know how I go on, Not today though it's throwing it down.

I am here for a Good Time..........But not for a Long Time.

If You can't laugh and smile.........Life isn't worth Living.

I don't know where the other thread is, but I don't get a message saying it's on. I do have a light on the dash to say it's on - turned on by swivelling the nut on the same stalk that you're pushing up.

Pull back to set a speed, push forward to increase the already set speed, pull back while still engaged to reduce the set speed. If you brake and want to go back to the speed you Already had push in the button on the end.

Worth checking the fly by wire connection to your accelerator pedal, an intermittent problem I had was traced back to the connector not being fully snapped onto the pedal module.

Mine is the same except I push the lever UP to engage CC. Maybe it would work pushing down, I've never tried that!

Also, you can use the button on the end of the stalk to disengage CC, as an alternative to braking. The press it again to re-engage CC (2hen you're back up to speed).

Cannot find any fault with bulbs or switches, I have booked it in for a Cam belt & water pump and service on Monday so asked them to have a look at it.

On another point I contacted local Fiat dealer for a quote for service and Cambelt etc, £239 for service and £860 for Cambelt Not ******* Likely, Phoned a local garage who has done a lot of work for us and is very good, £130 for service and £260 for Cambelt & Water pump, Guess where I booked it in?
