BMW E46 Cruise control and steering wheel retrofit DIY

BMW E46 DIY Retrofit steering wheel with cruise control (MFL)

M47N (M47TU) 2004 320d
56 pin connector (new upgrade version) facelift

I wanted to share this video with all you who wants to retrofit a stearing wheel with cruise control. Follow the steps and you should be able to DIY.
This Video does not not cover M47 and engines before 2001/9. The plug in the DDE is a 40 pin on those models.
You need a lot of tools for this job, but most are common to a DIY man/woman :)

+BMW 3 Series Have you got any information about E39? I tried to install
cruise control on 98' 11 530d (M57) with automatic transmission using your
tutorial with no success. I managed to get radio and recirculation buttons
working but no answer from cruise control buttons. I ran a wire from my
steering wheel to DDE pin 27. Any opinions?

For an N46 engine, see this picture:

The cruise control wire goes on the front side black connector on the DME
module, pin number 4.

hi,does this all work on a e46 1999 320D sedan?

Автор Daniel Genov ( назад)
Just fixed everything. The cruise works perfectly. And I changed the
throttle body too :) Lastly I had problem with wrong position of clutch
pedal switch - stay open when the pedal is at rest. But I found the right
position finally :)

Hello everybody,
I've just tried to install cruise control on my BMW e46 316i 1999 with
M43B19TU engine. I use the guide from a polish guy "BMW E46 318i M43, from
It did not work.
The Problem: The light of the cruise control turn on in green (pressing the
button I/O on the wheel), but the cruise control do not work at all.
Can you give me info about the clutch pedal switch: which position
deactivate cruise: OPEN circuit of switch or CLOSE circuit of switch.
How to test the stepper motor if it works at all.
What the cruise green light on the dashboard mean: that cruise module is
working and somewhere else is the problem?
Thank you!

is there any contact between the two wires i conect for light and bottons

Автор BMW 3 Series ( назад)
if your car isn't installed with the buttons for controlling radio and
cruise control, the car hasn't the wirering harness that it needs. I guess
BMW saved a few cents by leaving out the 3 wires for the cruise control.

Автор mhansford74 ( назад)
Why did you have to tap into the wire harness? I did this on my 03 e46 and
I only had to remove my old wheel and plug the new sport wheel in. Just

yes i use OEM BMW radio i will take a picture for it and send you to be
sure if it's the kind witch work and thank you so much

Автор BMW 3 Series ( назад)
To be able to control the radio, all you need to do is push in the two
connectors behind the airbag. Well actually one is for the LED light in the
buttons on the steering wheel and the other connector is for all the
buttons on the steering wheel. You don't have to connect anything else to
control the radio (I asume you use the OEM BMW radio)

it sounds like the heat shield on you exhaust has gotten lose. Worse is if
the catalytic converter has broken inside and you will have to replace it .
Of cause I can't be 100% sure, but so it sounds to me

I was told you need also to change the throttle body before you can have
cruise control.

U re right. There are 5 wires with same color. Found the correct one . Thx

Автор BMW 3 Series ( назад)
Hi, The plastic insulation for the connectors is contained in the BMW
wiring harness kit you will need from BMW. No. 61 12 0 016 012 Kit contains
3 wires with sleeves, male and female connectors and sleves for old and new
versions to the DDE connector. Just all what you need.

Автор Kal Lutato ( назад)
Hi Mondeo984, In your video from about 14:36 until 16:10 you are plugging
the cable connectors into some black plastic housings. What are the black
plastic housings called and where can I get them from? They did not come
with the steering wheel that I ordered from ebay (it was second hand).
Thanks in advance

You have probably connected it to the wrong wires on Plug X12. The colors

I think you can. If your car has an M54 engine it should be fine. Here is
what BMW says: Cars with M47 engines before 9/01 and all N42, M54 and M57
engines. So should be ok Just expect the connector to look a bit different
and it must be connected to Pin 27 in the DME/DDE

Ai reusit ceva pana la urma? Eu am fost si la reprezentanta si am facut un
update de ECU si tot nu merge. Incearca sa pui DIS-ul si acolo cauti in DDE
"tempomat fitted". La mine scrie NO si dupa update. Eu totusi cred ca
DDE-ul e din primele modele de e46 si nu este "bagata" optiunea in ea.

Автор BMW 3 Series ( назад)
You should double check that you cut and connected to the right cables at
the light switch module. Two of the cables are VERY close in their colors.
I almost cut the wrong cable because the grey and magenta colors are so
close to each other. (I have color vision, but still very hard to locate
right colors)

My daily driver is E46 328i and E30 325 weekends. 328i is more responsive
with Signature Motoring performance (CAI) intake kit. Installed it myself
in under half hour. HP increase on the E46 is about 13.5HP for a cost of
$170 or around $17 per HP gain. Best 1st performance mod to do. Other
application data: E30 series: 6.0-13.4hp gain E36 series: 5.5-12hp gain E46
series: 6.0-13.9hp gain E92 series: 8.5+ hp gain Z3/Z4 (all): 5.5-13.9hp

Автор BMW 3 Series ( назад)
I use the following words in my search on google to get the installation
manual. "bmw e46 mfl retrofit pdf" Im not sure, but it seems like you can
only install it models from 2001 to 2005 E46. If you have an older model
you would probably need a new throttle body also. At least for the gas
engines. For diesel engines from 1998 to 2000 it might work, im not sure.
