I found out, on a trip two weeks ago, that the cruise control is not working on my 2001 P38 DHSE [BMW diesel].
I have read quite a lot of stuff relating to various issues, mostly the pipework leaking air. My question is - where on earth is the solenoid jobby that is possibly located under the bonnet ? This is a UK car, not a USA model.
I looked at a couple of pictures, which I think are of the V8, and they appear to show that it is right behind the EAS compressor box.
Not in my diesel model, it isn't.
So I thought that it could be behind the battery, but no, it isn't there either.
I have the buttons and switches on the dashboard for CC so I am pretty sure that it is fitted.
I looked through Section 19 in Vehicle repair, in RAVE, and although the manual explains how it works it doesn't show any diagrams about where the various modules are. I saw on diagram on a very old post, on another forum somewhere, that pointed to the ECM and the TCM being under the panel above the drivers knee,
But nothing, anywhere that I can find, about where the vacuum thingy is.
Maybe someone can point it out as I would like to check the vacuum pipe, just to see if it is OK.
