That sounds perfect, I will investigate. I need to get hold of the ECU connector from a scrap car, I know of a local scrappy with a 2.1 in, so I will head over there when I have time.Doggy wrote:Not sure if your D8's the same, but I found a convenient grommet close to where the steering column goes through the bulkhead. Pull the upper edge of the carpet back a bit (in line with the brake pedal IIRC) & you should be able to feel it about 3" down from the top of the carpet. It's visible from under the bonnet too, but difficult to reach.
Brilliant, thanks very muchDoggy wrote:Consider it botched.
A couple of other noteworthy things from reading the Xantia threads:
1) The brake/clutch pedal switch wiring is a redundant system, it's not actually required for the ECU to disable cruise. The ECU already has a brake signal on pin 2 (from the primary brake switch), and can tell from the vehicle speed sensor and crank position sensors when the clutch has been depressed. This is the primary method used to disengage cruise. As such, it is possible (not that I'm planning to, nor advise it) to just supply a fixed 12V signal to pin 1 of the ECU. It will still disable cruise properly as required. However I think the redundant system is important, so I will be wiring up the pedal switches.
2) After hard braking, the ECU will subsequently disable cruise for about 5 minutes. I think this can be overridden by holding one's foot on the brake whilst turning cruise off and on again, but I'm not quite sure. There seems to be a bit of disagreement about this.
