I have the base model S 4motion and the cruise control has stopped working. The check engine light was on but the dealer had said that that was due to the N80 valve which has been on order for some time. I asked for an appointment to check out the cruise control but the dealer wouldn’t give me one. They said wait till the N80 valve is replaced. This sounds crazy to me.

I do know that when my engine was overheating and there were engine warnings it turned disabled all assistance features, including cruise control. Is your CEL still on? I think one reason it won't allow for cruise control with the CEL on is that it doesn't want the car damaging itself—since the engine isn't behaving as expected, it's up to the driver to safely operate it.

Her CEL might be different than mine although it sounds like it's the same fuel venting part. My cruise control always worked fine throughout FWIW.

But my CEL went out after the dealer checked and ordered the part and never came back on, so maybe that had something to do with it, but while my CEL was lit the cruise always worked fine.

I was told the N80 was something to do with the fuel venting part. So initially the the check engine light while the CEL first out the cruise control was working and then a week later it stopped working. Of course the check engine light has remained out during this time. So I don’t know if it’s a fuse or something with a switch or something else. Anyway it’s strange. So it’s no big deal but of course I want everything on a new car that I got 4 weeks ago to work.

Im sorry to hear you are having issues with your car, I hope your valve comes in soon so they can look at it.
Thanks so much. I’ve been waiting for that valve for three weeks now. No telling how long it will take to get here. It’s not coming from Germany but from Mexico. I guess they are having trouble with having enough employees everywhere.

Karen, according to the online owners manual you should be getting this message if the CCS is malfunctioning:
Font Rectangle Screenshot Circle Number


This may seem like a dumb question but are you switching the Cruise Control system on before you try to use it?

Hi, it’s not a dumb question. No, I’m not turning on the cruise control. How do I do that? I thought I just press ‘set’ to set the speed.

Also your odometer reading will be replaced with a gray symbol at first and then a green one with the set speed indicated.

Haha! I'm with you on the magnifying glass. One of the worst things about getting old.
If you haven't already seen it, the online version of the manual is great. Much easier to read. Just enter your VIN.
