  1. Alfa GTA
    Hi all. I have Alfa 156 GTA (2002) without a cruise control. I checked today if I have a free white plug to install the cruise control (as it described very deeply here) - but I hadn't. And that is the issue I'm thinking about: I though the plug should be in every GTA. Does anybody from you...

    Hello everyone I have just fitted a cruise control stalk to my 2005 facelift jtd. I took her out for a spin and tried the CC, but no joy. Do I need to have the car programmed to turn it on? or it there more to it than just fitting the stalk and plugging in the cable? any help appreciated...
  3. Alfa Giulietta
    My G is currently in getting the dash cluster changed to fix the trip control. So I've been given another G as a courtesy car. I've noticed a difference in the way cruise control works on the 2. In mine if I set a speed and hit any of the pedals I need to hit the "res" button to re-engage cruise...
  4. Alfa Giulietta
    That is the question, There's been a couple of economy & mpg threads and I was just wondering whats recommended for economy, Use the cruise control where possible or keep it off? I've seen recommendations to use it as it can maintain speeds more steadily and doesn't over compensate. However I...

    Hi Attempted to fix cruise on the GT. Clutch switched cream crackered so changed switch for new on. No joy Cruise light on. Will changing break switch be worth doing if faulty too, seems pressed in quite far???
  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I recenlt managed to get my Alfa 156's cruise control working the other day since I got it in May. However, everytime I press the brake, the cruise control deactivates itself completely, and doesn't reactivate or resume after I've switched off the engine and started again. I'm thinking the...

  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I have just purchased a 57 reg GT, the cruise control dose not work. Is this a problem that anyone has found a fix for without the trip to the dealer? (the fuse is fine). Also the red light on the dash for an airbag problem, is on. This, through a plug in device I have, has told me it's the...
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All Have a free sunday and with my new alfa now in the country (in Sweden having driven it from the UK!) i'm going to attempt to fix the problem stopping cruise control from working. There are some pictures and details of this in other threads but I had two specific questions if someone...

  13. General Alfa Discussion
    next week i'm going on holiday to devon (about 300 miles each way) and, being a tight arse, was just wondering whether cruise control would return better economy or not? has anyone managed to come up with any conclusive data, or is it just there to give your foot a rest? cheers :)
  14. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi My 159 has been going well (especially now DMF & clutch replaced!) but have a problem with the cruise control, basically it keeps turning itself off after about a minute or so, turn it off at the stalk, turn it on again and it will work but only for a little bit, is this just Italian...
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi I have a 156 facelift without c crontrol is it possible to fit the cruise control option to it? or is there a whole load of wiring / ecu needed ?
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have found an aftermarket cruise control unit for my 1998 Alfa 156. Install looks pretty straight forward, but I need a single wire speed sensor input. The wiring diagram for my car shows two wire sensors on each wire. Help? Andrew C.
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi everyone is it easy to update my 156 to have cruise control or is it not possible it's a 2001 model. And if it helps any one in this area I now have my multiecuscan up to date ver 1.5 :thumbs:
  18. Alfa GTA
    Anyone know how I can fix the cruise control button? It's not exactly over use! It's just kinda handy to change the date! could it be as simple as a squirt of contact cleaner? the physical button seems to work fine. Thanks :)
  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My cruise control fails on the odd occasion, when running the diagnostic I get a code (sorry cleared it) and "Cruise Pipe Pressure". When the cruise fails it will reconnect after a time on its own so it's not fatal. I've tried to search what it means but no real clues, any ideas? I also...
  20. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi people I read somewhere that al sportwagon 156 have wires for retro fit cruise control? Is this true? Does anyone have a photo of where it plugs in? Am I being daft?
