Here’s the backstory to my question:
2001 VW golf ALH TDI
My car has been swapped from automatic to 5 speed manual. All wiring appears to be done correctly, everything works, reverse lights, etc. except cruise control. When I check VCDS, the clutch and brake pedals and all cruise switches seem to indicate just fine in measuring block 06. However, there’s no cruise while driving.
VCDS soft coding is changed to 0002 for manual and Automatic TCU Is disconnected.

Here’s the question:
I noticed when the brake is applied while the cruise control is switched on I get a 17.0 in the rightmost measuring block 06 CCS field. From what i understand that field is only supposed to be 1, 0 or 255. Is this normal or indicative of a problem?

Hi and welcome.

Please post an Auto-Scan so people can see exactly what ECU you have.

I've got nothing on this. I guess we'd need to ask someone with a similar ECU and working cruise check if that's normal when the brake is applied. My guess is that it's OK if you see this only when the brake is applied because applying the brake should cancel the cruise.

Let me ask this: What manual transmission did you install? Does it have the expected/correct ratios for this application? It's a known problem that incorrect ratios can prevent cruise from engaging; the ECU compares vehicle speed to RPM, calculates toe overall gear ratio from this, and if it doesn't match an expected ratio, refuses.

Interesting. It is an 02J 5 speed from a pretty much identical donor car. I do have an ECU which is tuned by Malone but I can’t see that eliminating cruise control. It was tuned and manual swapped before I bought the car, so I did retrace the wiring to the ECU as that was my first suspect. Since VCDS recognizes the cruise switches it’s more mysterious.

Have you tried toggling cruise off and back on in the ECU?

Login with 16167 to turn it off.
Cycle ignition.
Login with 11463 to turn it back on.

I don't have much hope for this, but it doesn't cost much to try.

Thanks for the suggestion, i did try it without success. I made sure the letter G disappeared and reappeared in the engine component field.
