Cruiste Control Issue

Hi Guys, as some of you already know I'm a newbie in the 6 series world. Just bought mine couple of days ago.

I think I have a problem with cruise control. I think it's not working at all. I own a 2006 e90 and the cruise control lever is the same on my 645i, where you have to push it forward to set the desired speed.

But when I tested this it didn't worked. I noticed it has a "resistance point" but makes no difference. Please see this photo:

What I'm doing is pressing the lever in the arrows directions. In fact I tested all directions and never get to fix the speed. I'm not getting any kind or warnings.

Today I will test again. Thanks for any feedback.

Well, hopefully you don't have an actual problem.
The way it works is just before the resistance point it jumps at 1MPH increments.
Push past the resistance point and jumps to the nearest 5th MPH.
So if you're cruising at 77, pull back one and it goes to 76, push forward past resistance and it goes to 80, push forward past resistance it goes to 85, push forward a bit it goes to 86, again 87, again 88, push past resistance and it goes to 90.

Slow down by pulling back and it works the same in the reverse direction.
I'm sure you know this already. Hopefully you have no other issues that actually prohibit the cruise control from working,
one of which I believe is an ABS issue or DSC issue, but those are other issues.

I did tested in all possible directions... pulling, pushing, up, down, resistance point... nothing.

From the dealer they told me it's a configuration problem that can appear when the car looses battery power and the cruise control can be "unlinked" to the car's computer. And that a scanner should solve the problem.

Is there anyone that have experienced this?

That sounds like a lot of BS to me! It sounds like to me that a module is bad, & the dealer is not willing to do the repair. If you are handy with the tools & computer smart, the BMW software purchase would be your best bet. Being located in Chile, there are probably very few people that can repair your car. Read the link below, & purchase it. This will save you a ton of money on repairs, & help you learn how to do your own repairs!

Good Luck!

From what I can tell, that makes no sense.

First, do some basic checking like fuses etc.
