2021 Scania has inoperable cruise control. The cruise control identifier doesn’t even appear in a greyed out format

Post by Cochrano »

2021 Scania has inoperable cruise control. The cruise control identifier doesn’t even appear in a greyed out format (circled). Any ideas? The exhaust brake is off. The message reads “Make cruise control available” but how? 🤔

By getting in one that works, have you checked the settings on the steering wheel that could be set to limit rather than cruise and make sure you have the auto exhaust brake off too.

The steering wheel buttons are giving me the message:-
“Cruise control unavailable. Make cruise control available”

This has only happened since Friday. I mentioned the greyed out cruise dial, because it usually shows it in the red circle (pictured). I’m starting to get shaky legs, holding that throttle down lol. Your I know, Mamby Pamby steering wheel holder 😂.

proper drivers use foot throttle cruise control for lazy buggers who want to play with their phones and put their feet up like you see all the foreign drivers

All I could say is before getting it checked by somebody check the cruise control button is Green on the right below the steering wheel, it’s just a speedometer looking symbol 🙂

No lights in these ones. Just on off and a toggle.

I drive the newish kind of scania R450s so 2019 onwards, I’ve just found a picture of the cab buttons I took and you’re right that button isn’t there, I wonder if I’m thinking of the old gen ones sorry, not sure what else it could be, maybe check the fuse box?

Press the little cog type button on steering wheel. Then use the arrow buttons to turn cruise on on the dash screen.

It should then put the little grey cruise control picture on the dash display and the normal buttons will work again
