    INTRODUCTION:

    No doubt you find yourself reading this guide today because you find

    yourself with foot ache or because you are a long distance driver

    wanted cruise control that was not natively fitted to your Corsa C.

    The cruise control system was an optional extra on Vauxhall Corsas and came

    as part of the Plus Pack which included 16 alloy wheels, remote ultrasonic

    alarm system.

    It was ONLY available on MANUAL models.

    I will seek to show you the steps that are required in installing Cruise

    Control (CC) into your FACELIFT Corsa C; with images and

    diagrammatic representations of the wiring system surrounding your

    Motronic Canbus Engine Control Unit.

    Dont bother rushing your Cruise Control Installation take

    this guide and re-read every step and plan. It takes

    perseverance to get the system to work!

    Before you use your Cruise Control system after fitting it from this guidance you have to have it PROPERLY TESTED by a fully approved Vauxhall Specialist.

    A breakdown then of the steps you will be required to carry

    out to get the system live:

    1. ) Check your engine code is compatible with that of this manual

    Z12XEP (1.2 Twinport)

    Z14XEP (1.4 Twinport)

    Should you have a different engine code I will provide some information at the back of this

    book about slight differences in the steps you need to take to get the system working and

    the troubles you may have.

    2. ) Stalk/ Indicator Wiring at dashboard level Pin 4 of Indicator/ Cruise Stalk > Pin 2 of Body Control Module Plug

    Facelift Corsas SHOULD have this cable in situ as standard on (SXI/ SXI+) models

    but I have not investigated any other models/ variants.

    3. ) Cruise Control Switch Assembly and Wiring Clutch Switch Pin (there are only two) to Pin 8 of Engine Control Unit Delphi Plug

    4. ) Engine Control Unit Wiring Entering the Delphi Plug/ inserting a wire and clip safely

    5. ) OPCOM programming steps Using your OPCOM programme to activate Cruise Control in the Engine Management

    and Body Control System

    Catch 22:

    Find these things out first!

    Pin 4 Stalk to Pin 2 BCM brown and grey wire?

    Remove your trim panels in the drivers foot well and the Steering Cowling to

    determine if you have this wire. If you do like I did then your job is 50% done.

    Pin 8 Delphi Connector ECU (X53) Pin 4 Clutch Switch

    It is unlikely that you have this wire in situ. Using the Dephi Plug

    disassembly guide check to see if you have a GREY wire coming

    from Pin 8 I did! Although I never used it. If you dont it is not the

    end of the world.

    If you do:

    Check the next set of places:

    Plug X21 (drivers footwell)

    Pin 10 as seen in the red

    circle.

    X1 Pin 34

    It is my opinion that if the grey cable does not meet you in the interior loom at

    plug X21 Pin 10, it will be at the X1 socket at pin 34 (red ring). Should this be

    the case I would disregard its presence and fit a new cable as the hassle of

    getting at it in the body control module is more work that its worth.

    HOWEVER, if you are trying to wire a stalk wire Pin 4 to BCM Pin 2 on the X45

    BCM plug (green ring) you may have more of a chance and it MAY be

    worthwhile.
