BMW M51 325TDS / M41 318TDS Diesel Cruise Control

Post by Metroreg » 27 Aug 2016, 19:50

Just completed a Retrofit Diesel Cruise Control in my 325tds

Here is what you need
Cruise control switch - 61318360927

http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/partxre ... series=E36" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Create Wiring loom from the X69 connector by the fusebox two cables needed Green and Brown / Green (Green goes to pin 2 and Brown / Green goes to Pin 3 Replace existing pin3 cable)
The other side of the cable Green cable goes straight to Cruise Control Switch, Brown / Green needs to be split one of the cables goes to the Cruise Control Switch, the other length of the Brown / Green cable replaced pin 8 in the throttle plug.

Attached is the BMW Install guide for the Cruise Control

Good job :thumbup:

Hopefully you've done it right
If I hear on the radio the police are chasing a 3 series BMW on the M25 and the owner is flat out in the outside lane and not stopping for them
Il be thinking of you :d
Life's to short to be driving boring cars
It's all about the old school
