Adaptive cruise control oddity

Recommended Posts

I've just discovered what I think is a hidden function.

I was using ACC at a steady 40 mph with nothing in front of me and as I approached a light controlled junction, when the light went to red the ACC started slowing me down. That was a surprise.

Am I right about this being a function or was it a glitch on the ACC?

It has happened several times now but only with certain traffic lights.

Yes it's meant to be you'll have a camera up at the rear mirror facing forward and this is what triggers the cruise control.

I didn't think the PFL came with a front mounted camera? If so, that is another part i will have to source! Adaptive cruise is the next on the list...

I have just finished installing the TV module, ACC is the next toy...

Paul... Can you check your RVM and get back to me if possible please?

 

Thanks, Alex

Sorry Paul... Rear View Mirror..

 

My kids told me to be more productive and use fewer ltrs wn typng - cant quite grasp it myself...

 

Just checked through the workshop manual and as far as i can see, the forward facing camera was introduced with the facelift and the newer XJ's

OK Alex.

Mine doesn't have a forward mounted camera.

Sorry for giving you the wrong information, i must have been thinking about the facelift model.

Regards Tom.
