Cruise Control Retrofit Guide For VW POLO 9N/9N3

Recommended Posts

olie93

Hi,

I fitted my cruise control to my 9n3 TDI over the weekend. I looked around for a guide but was unable to find a complete guide that was written in English, so i thought of writing this one.

Remember cruise control can only be fitted if the control units serial number starts with 6Q0 or 6Q1. This is in the drivers foot-well in the right if you want to check.

The stalk & wiring loom can be brought from here.
With MFD or Without MFD. There products can also be found on this website electritech.co.uk

Firstly i had to remove the dashboard. This is because one of the plugs you need to add a pin too is plugged into the bulkhead. Others have said that they have managed to do this with extra long nose pliers. Others have suggested wiring it straight into the ECU.
If you need help removing the dash a guide can be found here http://www.pimpowski.de/armaturenbrett_aus...n_pimpowski.htm
The guide is in German but you can get a good idea by just translating the text & looking at the pictures.

After you have removed the dashboard the car will look something like this

The next step is to insert the pin into the plug on the bulkhead. This plug can be found where the arrow is pointing too on the picture above.

When you have located the the plug you will need the pull the metal slide out to release the plug. Once you have pulled this out you will need to push down the clip and pull the plug out.

Once you have removed the plug you need to put the pin in. The pin on the wiring loom is the long one that is on its own. This needs to be put onto pin 11. That pin is the pin on the picture above with the grey wire in that is pulled the other way. To get the pin in you will need slide the purple bit on the bottom to unlock the pins. When you have put the pin in move the purple bit back, put the plug back in the bulkhead & then put the metal slide across.

Next you need to put the pins into the steering wheel stalk connector. This can be seen below.

59e9db6861d4f_9ncc3.jpg.4c8adac970073e4a109fd0b56097dd89.jpg


This is where the other wires with pins go. They should be numbered 26 to 31. If the wires aren't numbered but are different colours the list below will tell you what colours the pins relate to

PIN 26 - white
PIN 27 - red
PIN 28 - black
PIN 29 - white
PIN 30 - yellow
PIN 31 - blue

This connector has three levels. The wires need to go into the middle level. The pins are numbered. You can see where they need to go from the picture above. You may need to remove the plastic cover around the connector. This should just un-click from underneath and slide out side ways.

When you have done that you need to plug the plastic connector on the wiring loom into the module in the drivers foot-well. This is on the right hand side. It should only fit in one hole.

59e9db937b2b7_9ncc4.jpg.9235b5143bf4711b09dddb06b95d0b8d.jpg


if you are having trouble finding the right socket it is socket XS3.

You should now have one wire left. This should be a wire with nothing on the end of it. This wire needs to be soldered to the wire coming from the back of fuse 4. This should be a black and blue wire. You need to splice this and solder the last wire to it. DON'T CUT THE WIRE!!

59e9dbb4670ac_9ncc5.jpg.c26970ae916c1c9cf3645dcfc5706d58.jpg


Once you have done that you are good to reassemble the dashboard.

Once reassembled you will need to activate cruise control using VAG-COM

[select]
[01 - Engine]
[Login - 11]
Enter 11463 to activate cruise control
[Do It!]

That should be it. My cruise control light doesn't seem to light up when cruise control is on, but it does work. Remember cruise control doesn't work in neutral or 1st gear. You also need to be doing over 30kph.

The original German guide is attached to the post

Hope it helps smile.gif

Hi Stephen

You need to look at your CCM and find out the model number. the CCM is located in the drivers footwell. It will have loads of cables going into it.

It should look like this:

seat-ibiza-skoda-fabia-vw-polo-ccm-modul

it should look something like this 6Q*-937-049-***

if it starts with 6Q1 or 6Q0 it will work with cruise control. If it starts 6Q2 it wont support it and you will have to replace it with a higher spec one.

Regards

Oliver

Must drop a quick thank you for posting this as your guide helped me fit CC to my polo, thankfully if you have nimble hands you dont need to get the whole dash off, just wedge in the socket from underneath.

Massive thanks to this guide! It allowed me to get my head around what was required today when installing it on my Ibiza. Works an absolute treat.

I took a few pics on my thread here in case it further helps people. Should be towards the bottom of the thread.

Thanks again!!

Would it be quicker to simply wire directly into the ECU? Not OEM I know but I assume there are 5 wires in the ECU that can be removed and replaced by yours? The only thing concerning me is if I could get a plug for the stalk. Obviously there is a plug on one end and a plug on the other end. If I cut the plug off the end going into the CCM, I could keep the plug into the stalk right?

Theoretically, you could snip the 5 wires going into the ecu and replace them with bullet connectors to the stalk? Would take all of ten minutes no? Or is there a specific resistance to each wire that makes bullets totally inappropriate?

Hello Peter,

Where did you get the wiring loom from?

Good interesting article,

what is the significance of the serial numbers you quote?

does it mean that these numbers have the plug under the dash,

I ask because I have asked two VW dealers for retro fit cruise control and they have both said it cannot be adapted yet following your article and checking underneath I find that I have the Serial number 6Q1, meaning that it could be done,

I’m confused, please can you explain this.

I think it is down the the module supporting cruise control. It was a long time ago but i believe this was were i got the information from that only 6Q0 and 6Q1 were supported

Lol hahah took the dash out its not so bad just time consuming first time round. Could do one fairly quick now. Can do it with dash in if you're lucky but better to take it out so you can run the wires neatly

      Hi all,
       
      I am new to the forum 🙂
       
      I own a 2002 Polo 9N and I am planning to convert it to a 9N3 face.
       
      I am considering getting 9N3's:
      - Bumper
      - Headlights
      - Bonnet
      - Wings
       
      Is crash bar needed too?
       
      Thnx!

      Hi, I've got the amber steering warning light and intermittent power steering so I opted to change the pump but could only get an a2 pump. Having fitted this pump the power steering appears to be working OK but the warning light is still lit. Could it be that the ECU detects that the pump was originally on an Audi and flag it as an error / fault? Thanks in advance for any help.

      I've been searching the net for clearcut information on Polo 9n (not 9n3) dash upgrades with not my much luck.

      I'm wondering what can be added / upgraded on the 9n's interior electrical/dash side but all I seem to find is 9n3 information.

      My 05 Polo Dune TDI now has the MFD head unit fitted and I love it. I want to add cruise control next which is fairly straightforward like the Mk4 Golf from what I can see. But are there any upgrades that can be had for the instruments and controls?

      I'm thinking FIS, MFA on the headunit, multifunction steering wheel (connected to the MFD and cruise?) etc.

      I have a MFSW from a Mk4 Golf with the control module but I can't seem to find anything about wiring and the clockspring etc.

      Golf guys get all the toys! Worried the 9n is doomed to have a limited setup with just warning lights on the dash😄
