Anyone have a prob with cruise control (CC) on the MFSW on the otherwise faultless MCS??
It sometimes just doesn't kick in, though the light comes on etc. It either drops 20-30mph and then kicks in, otherwise I just have to start pressing the '+' button as soon as I have switched it on to get it to maintain the speed.
That way I understand it is that when you turn it on (at a reasonable speed), it should maintain the speed you are doing at the time, which you can then subsequently adjust with the + and -. Don't think you should have to fiddle with these at the start.
Don't use it often (only when I want to sleep!), but it annoys me.
press the button to turn it on then you pres +,- straight away to set the cc to the current speed and off you go. you can change gear whils the cc is on and active if you come to a hill without it disengaging. it does not like it but it will keep the same speed.
Mercedes-Benz traditionally had "instant on" cruise controls, whereas BMW considered these dangerous. Hence you have to switch it on before you can activate it. I guess they had US plaintiff lawyers in mind when they designed this feature.....
