that said, if you don't take them for a long spin out every now and then, they will fail
you can tell when it is in the middle of regenerating because the fan will be on after you switch ignition off and you get a "hot" smell from the engine. if you keep interrupting the regenerations, take it for a half hour motorway blast at 2000-3000 revs
yea and its uber more expensive than the 8.49 kit i linkied to :/
still, gonna wait. doin some research the company that makes the 8.49 also does a dimming version which dims with the headlights - like an audi, but cant find it on ebay. have msg'd the guy there about it but awaiting reply :/ fingers crossed.
....Yes im aware of what the buttons do, its just they are evidently not working properly and each button does not perform the required action, im just looking for an explanation for this, possible a wire shorting in the circuit?
A bit of a harsh response given Amberes was only trying to help, GeorgeZS.
Perhaps I can be a bit clearer regarding the way this (and any other) cruise control system is set up:
The ON button tells the cruise control to be aware that it might be set (puts it in STANDBY mode) The + button sets the current speed as the target speed, and activates the speed REGULATION mode. A green LED lights to confirm regulation is in place Whilst in REGULATION mode, the + and - buttons adjust the target speed Pressing the brake pedal, clutch pedal or the CAN/RES button whilst it is in REGULATION cancels it and returns it to the STANDBY state. If in STANDBY the CAN/RES button reactivates the REGULATION mode without setting to current speed [contrast with + key which does set to current speed], bringing the car to the previous target as fast as possible.
All of this is detailed in the manual.
As for the bluetooth, given you didn't read the manual for the cruise control, I would suggest you have a read first to make sure you are using that correctly as well.
I have a couple simple questions about the A/C. The titanium models come with a climate control module and you can adjust the temperture/climate to how you want it. Now, with the engine fan i only notice it running when the A/C is on as well. Any reason why the engine fan doesn't come on any other time? Only sometimes i enjoy just turning the climate control off and rolling down the windows. I haven't had my car during the winter yet so i'm just wondering how it works to keep the engine cool during the winter months.
Don't really want to be turning off the A/C if this actually turns off the engine cooling fan and causing the engine to overheat unless it can live without the fan when A/C is off.
The fan is thermostatically controlled and will come on if the engine coolant gets above a threshold temperature as directed by the ECU.
The fan also comes on when the AC compressor is running because, in front of the radiator, is the AC condenser matrix - which also needs cooling.
Having the AC off will not stop the fan coming on if the ECU orders it to, because the engine temp is too high. So to answer your question
Any reason why the engine fan doesn't come on any other time?
the simple answer is that it does come on, if the ECU commands it to. But it will be on all the time if the AC compressor is running as well.
