    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey I was just curious if anyone knew what a good working cruise control module should Ohm out to on a multimeter my cruise is out and I’m not sure if it’s the module or the stalk switch. The on/off switch works and dash lights “cruise “ but will not set and hold speed.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi everyone, I thought I would share what I learned while installing an aftermarket cruise control with totally nonsense-colored cables.
