Cruise control/Speed limiter switch


I am having problems with my cruise control /speed limiter switch.
When trying to engage CC at the appropriate speed and gearing etc. the switch very often refuses to engage, it can take 10 to 15 pushes before it finally stays on (each time the button is pushed in, the CC light illuminates in the centre of the dash display) Once the switch holds CC works perfectly until switched off again.

I have not managed to get Speed Limiter to stay on at all although I haven't tried nearly as much as with CC.

Car is an 04 Laguna 1.9dCi Initiale with 40500 miles on the clock, I have owned it for 6 months and (of course) it is about three weeks out of warranty.

Is it likely to be the switch which is faulty, if so is it a simple DIY swap. Could it be (he said hopefully) just that the switch hasn't been used very much and needs wearing in?

Thanks in anticipation of any assistance

The switch panel just pulls out on the phase 1. I removed mine to feed a power cable through for my TrafficMaster, so I know it's easy to get out.

Once you have the panel out (take care not to strain the wires) it should be fairly obvious how to pop out the individual switches. I doubt there's much scope for repairing the switch itself, so if the dealer's price proves too expensive, it's time to start scouring the breakers yards.

It may need the switch contacts spraying with electrical cleaner.
