I wanted to add shift paddles to my SEL (Highline, actually - in Canada) 2015 Golf TDI, and found an OEM steering wheel that fits, but it has the ACC (adaptive cruise control) in the button

whereas my stock (non-paddled) MFSW does not:

First of all - was so pleased with how easily the airbag popped off (compared to Mk4 cars), and then also pleased that everything worked...except the cruise control.

Is there any way to get it to work?
I have an error in the Engine module - tried changing some coding there as well as in 16-Steering Wheel, but no coding changes in 16-Steering wheel would stick. I was able to get rid of the blinking glow plug light at least, but luck with enabling standard cruise control (BTW, car *does* have "front assist" - but not adaptive cruise.)
