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 :)

Bitte sagen Sie mir auf einem BMW E39 525 2001 Diesel kann auch multipul
angeschlossen werden ???

Автор George MBimmer ( назад)
Great video. Does it work on 2004 e46 318i with N 46 engine? And how do you
think it will be dificult to make wiring myself? As I see there is only 3
wires to connect. And one more will this work if I connect wires to light
switch module without plastic connectors?? Thank you again

Why we need to take off the steering wheel? :-?

+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!

Did this on my 2001 E46 M52B22. Worked perfectly!

Автор Kristof Van den Broeck ( назад)
Hey, I drive a 318d E46 touring bj2003. I was told that for installing
cruise control, you need to pass by the car dealer, because their computer
has to give a pulse to make the cruise control work. (as if the computer
teaches the car it can use it) But I see no such thing in this movie. Is
that correct? Because I have the cable installed, but the dealer wants to
charge me 150 euro up to 250 euro just to make it work...

what size of pipe do you use to take out the screw of the steering wheel ?

Hej. Super video!
Jeg har et lille spørgsmål. Er det nødvendigt med alt det kabelkrammeri,
hvis man har facelift sportsrattet? Har selv en e46 320i Coupé Facelift fra
2004. Den har standart sportsrattet uden multifunktion og fartpilot:

Har lige købt et rat magen til bare med multifunktion, hvor jeg kun vil
bruge multitasterne og ikke skifte rattet.
Jeg havde tænkt mig at bare bytte det over. Altså fjerne airbagen
(selvfølgelig først koble batteriet fra), dernæst bytte plastiklisten ud
med den nye med multifunktion.
På den måde undgår jeg alt det kabelkrammeri. Det store spørgsmål er så:
vil fartpiloten samt radioknapperne virke?
Hvis du kan svare på det ville det være mig en stor hjælp :)

is there any contact between the two wires i conect for light and bottons
control? thank you again?

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

Автор Iyad Nasser ( назад)
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)

Автор Iyad Nasser ( назад)
hi i try that on my bmw 318i 2002 but i didint conect the motor wire and
control the radio didint work i must conect the motor wire? thank you

I think you will also have to upgrade the throttle body

Hi, I can do this for BMW E46 (facelift) 318i from 1999? Thank you.

Автор BMW 3 Series ( назад)
ok, sorry but not easy to diagnose without beeing there. Hard to localize
from where the sounds are comming

Автор PavilloN ( назад)
when its givin this sound RPM goin down :(

Автор BMW 3 Series ( назад)
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

Автор PavilloN ( назад)
thank you soo much for ur answer and i have problem for my bmw.(help
please) /watch?v=INNomTh4oPs have u any idea?

Автор BMW 3 Series ( назад)
I was told you need also to change the throttle body before you can have
cruise control.

Автор PavilloN ( назад)
Have u cruise control before or not. bcouse i have 2000 model 3.20i. if i
make this can i use cruise control?

some other way to request it? Thanks.

if you search for the "e46 mfl pdf" on google you can see in the manual
what engines are supported and what pins on the DDE to use

modifications like you did. thanks .

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

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

Автор BMW 3 Series ( назад)
You have probably connected it to the wrong wires on Plug X12. The colors
are VERY close to each other. I almost picked the wrong color wires my self
because they match so close. I think Violet and Blue and Grey looks the

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
