Install Cruise control on Caddy 2011

Post by dynamic duo » Mon May 13, 2019 9:55 pm

Hi everyone,

I am keen to have a go installing cruise control and MFSW on my Caddy Maxi Life 1.6 TDI (2011). At the moment the steering wheel is basic plastic and the instrument panel only shows the outside temperature and digital km/h. but i know that with MFSW i can get the on board computer to show more information than the outside temperature only. ( I have full version of VCDS Hex-NET).

Has anyone done this before, and how much hassle it is? ( I have installed cruise control before on several of my previous cars ( Audi A2/A3, VW Golf Mk4).

Any advice on parts and installation would be highly appreciated.

Thank you,

Luis

Done some checking with VCDS tonight, looks like I only need a new stalk ( indicator with cruise control buttons) .

Please correct me if I am wrong, but both channel 16 - Steering Wheel and 01- Engine have accepted the coding, thus it means that i do not need any other parts?

Easy enough to remove airbag/ steering wheel and old stalk. Will have a try next weekend and let you all know.

cheers

You'll need the stalk set, nothing else.
There is lots of information in the technical section of the forum on this very subject.

I'm also having a go at this too, hopefully tomorrow, got new stalks and wheel ready, just not looking forward to getting airbag off

Hi Minimobster,

as long as you follow the golden rules, removing the airbag is easy.

Just remember to remove the earth from the battery first and before you take the airbag off the steering wheel, touch an earth point so no static is present.


Hi Doc, cheers for confirming :D

There’s no need to remove the battery, nothing relating to the airbags is live with ignition off
