Hi if I buy a cruise control kit will it just plug in and away I go or does Peugeot have to install it with software etc?

Theoretically all you need is a cruise control stalk. It should simply push in but you would need to get cruise control enabled either at a dealers or by contacting a member of the forum that has the dealer diagnostics. A lot of dealers say it can't be done especially if you supply your own stalk. I've also heard that Peugeot started to remove the options to enable cruise control on later models if they didn't leave the factory with cruise to stop us tetrofitting this expensive option for just a few quid. Don't know how true it is but it may be wise to get it hooked up to the diagnostics (not at a dealers) to see if the options are available before spending money on parts you may not be able to use.

It's not that bad. Takes about 10 minutes maybe less to enable it if the options are there.

Find a member near you to connect there kit to the car and see if it's available. I think Cruise Control can be enabled even without the stalk so that when the stalk is connected it would work straight away.

The steering column shroud may need a piece cutting out though you may be lucky and have a shroud with a removable panel for the stalk.

I've just tried to activate cruise control on a 308sw for a member on here today but no luck. First one I've failed to do and I've done quite a few. The BSI had the option already enable and the engine ecu just had the option for enable on all vehicles, not absent or present like normal (other config options had this). We tried various options for an hour and checked the brake switch and stalk switches in diagbox. The stalk fitted did have the limit function to so I've advised them to try and swap it for a cruise only stalk.

Newer models may well be different. My cruise stalk has the limiter function but even though I don't have the correct accelerator pedal for the limiter (not checked the wiring), cruise still works.

Had my car booked in today they tried fitting kit but right at the end an error message stopped them from carrying on
