My girlfriends GT has a similar issue, it only works half the time. You can turn the stork on, but you get on light on the dash and the CC doesn't work. Then, the next time you're in it all is fine.

Odd, but she doesn't like CC anyway. Although I should get it sorted whilst it's still in warranty.

The stalk itself is about £50 or so depending on which dealer you go to. Sound like the internal switch is knackered or something, you'll probably only sort it out by replacing unfortunately as it'll cost only about a tenner more to replace as to check out on the diagnostics and that probably won't pick it up anyway. :(

Cheers,

Mark

I haven't experienced this problem myself Punt (the one time the cc light went out in my GT, a shut down and re start of the engine cured it), however I have read somewhere on here that the normal cause of CC failure are the switches at the top of the Clutch and Brake pedals. As the CC uses these to over ride automatic control, if they are at fault, the CC will not switch on.

Hoping this helps.
