2003 Galaxy 2.3 Ghia - Parking sensors and Cruise Control
« on: June 13, 2012, 10:11:23 AM »
Hi, both the parking sensors and Cruise Control on our 2003 Galaxy 2.3 Ghia have failed. The cruise control doesn't appear to work at all and the parking sensors just made a continuous bleep and the switch light flashes. I think by listening to the sensors two are suspect on the back.
Are these faults something I can help resolve using a VCDS lite? If so, are they easy to use?

Thanks.

VCDS can't talk to your engine as its a Ford engine and not a VW one so it can't help with the Cruise side of things. The cruise is most likely to be a split hose from the vacuum pump. Its located inside the passenger wing (either remove the passenger headlight or the wheel arch liner) - the rubber hose splits and the system can't pressurise correctly.

VCDS will be able to talk to the PDC controller though and tell you which parking sensors are faulty.
