Active Cruise Control for sale

Active Cruise Control module and ACC Control stalk from my 2004 760Li pre-facelift

I have a used, but in 100% guaranteed working order ACC for sale.

It mounts on the front of your car and uses radar to control the speed of your car and apply the brakes if traffic is slowing down etc.

This is really lazy driving as it controls the cars speed. Great in traffic as you let the car regulate the speed of the car and apply the brakes etc.

Brand new $3,251.32

RED HOT SALE PRICE - THIS WEEKEND ONLY
My price $400 plus postage...*****

Comes with mounting bracket AND active cruise control stalk.

The only thing you need to do is connect it into your car.

Turn your standard Cruise Control into Active Cruise Control

So what are you waiting for........early bird gets the worm!

You will also need the ACC cruise control stalk to change the distance time (1-4 secs)

I LOVE THIS FEATURE. It turns long trips into ride-alongs. Just set a speed, find a car to follow, and control the steering wheel only. Whoever gets this won't regret it

You are so right Carboy7 it makes going for drives so much more pleasurable......and in traffic, the car just follows the speed of the traffic without you having to touch the brakes.......just ride-a-long......

Ace, I've heard that with any retrofitting of ACC or replacement of the radar head, the system has to be specially calibrated and here in the UK at least, there's only a handful of dealers with the necessary equipment to do it.

Also, surely this would require a different control module? Or is it just a case of coding the VO?

Hi Dan E65, yes I know that BMW likes to make all this sound really complicated, but it is no different to aiming a headlight. I have removed mine myself and then re-aligned it myself in my garage at home, and it works fine. Here in Oz the BMW dealer charges $150 to align it...... I don't know what they charge you there...... but it's NOT complicated... as I said it is the same as aiming a headlight.

In relation to the control module......the ACC unit is the Control Module.....it's all in one. The radar eye head is the forward looking part of the module. There are no other required modules. It just connects onto the PT-CAN and becomes a part of the PT network.
*******>********>
Installation:
Make sure both guide pins (1) of ACC sensor (2) are correctly seated.



Replacement only:
Carry out rough adjustment of ACC sensor (1) at adjusting screws (2)
Measurement A [mm]: 6.35 0.2
Measurement B [mm]: 4.85 0.2





Here is the wiring diagram..... http://wds.spaghetticoder.org/en/svg...6947.svg?m=e65

This is slightly off topic so forgive me for highjacking this tread. Is there a way to program the ACC or maybe some adjustment I can make in the unit itself so my car will follow closer to the car I'm following. I know how to adjust it using the little wheel on the lever that is attached to the steering column but I still follow much to far back from the car I'm following even when I have it set to follow as close as possible. I read somewhere on this forum some while ago that it is possible to do an adjustment using the INPA program?

The ACC is programmed to distances in relation to time. So the faster you are going the longer the distance, the slower you are going the shorter the distance. At what speed are you saying it's not close enough?
The times are calculated at the time you are in seconds at your current speed following the vehicle ahead.

It follows to far back for my liking at all speeds. I understand that it follows at greater distances from the car I am following as the speed increases but whether I'm going at 50 mph & it is leaving 5 car lengths of distance or I am going at 70 mph & it is leaving 7 cars lengths of distance (both distances are for example purposes only) I would like to be following closer. Do you know if there is a way to adjust the setting to allow me to decrees the distance between my car & the car I am following?

PS: As stated in my original post I do know about the little wheel adjustment.
PPS: Please no lectures on safe driving practices. lol

the distance is kept 1, 2, 3 or 4 seconds of distance from the car in-front of you. This means that it's going to vary based upon your speed.

So at 60MPH it'll be leaving 88ft. per Second of distance
So at 70MPH it'll be leaving 102. 667 per second of distance, etc.

It's basically your Feet/Second at your current speed.

So as to my question....is there a way to change those distances to lesser amounts? An example would be to change the 70MPH to leave 70 feet per second distance.

Yes Lastcombo, it connects into the PT-CAN (Power Train) and turns standard Cruise Control into Active Cruise Control. You have seen all my DIY's that I do. I will do one for this too if you need it

I read from your comment above that I may be able to turn my ACC into standard Cruise Control? If so, do you have a DIY to achieve it? thx

So getting back on topic, this is a feature I'd really like but as I've already discussed with Ace over PM, the item he's offering is not suitable for my car.

I reckon we should start making some headway on a retrofit DIY...

Looking at the wiring diagrams, there appears to be 6 pins on the connector on the back of the radar head. These are two for PT-CAN, two for voltage, one for ground and one going to the CAS (could be wrong about this last one).

The connections are made behind the bumper in the foglight area where I suspect there should be a short loom leading to a splice point. I havent checked on mine yet but I doubt there'll be a plug there ready and waiting! There are details on RealOEM for the plug housing and pin part numbers if one needs to be made from scratch.

Once this has been fitted you'll need a new section of grille with a hole in it for the radar head to see out - fairly cheap from the dealer.

After this, you need the ACC stalk, again not expensive from the dealer. Does the steering wheel need to be removed to fit this? That brings about issues with the airbag etc.

I suppose the final stage will be adding the string to the VO, which I've found to be $541 (for ACC2 on the facelift model anyway).

I reckon it'll take a bit more scouring of the WDS to work it out. But even so, I reckon it's still very do-able.

I want this so bad, but my bank account is still recovering from my last round of repairs. Hope it goes to a good owner!
