    I have just purchased a 2001 330i se, and have found out that the cruise control does not work.

    When i start the engine and push the on button for the cruise, the light comes on the dash, but the moment I press the brake pedal, the light goes out and I am not able to switch the cruise on again until i restart the engine.

    Does anybody have any ideas as to what this could be.

    Sorry if this is in the wrong section. This is my first post on this forum.

    Thanks in advance

    Paul

    i'd say you have a dodgy MAF sensor mate, that'll stop the CC working, especially if pressing the brake turns the light off. There is also a clutch switch which can throw it out.

    Best bet is a diagnostics mate really to know for certain
