    Hi All, As per thread title, I took a screengrab from Opcom, it doesn't have the ttid on it so unsure if it is reporting valid numbers. Other threads say the latest ECU firmware is 55576164 but mine doesn't have any firmware even remotely resembling this. Also Opcom displays A19DTR instead of...

    Is there any reason why my cruise control would not be working after software update? It was working ok before, I called them back and the technician is saying software update should not affect cruise at all. Is it possible that it got reset to OFF by default and now needs to be enabled by Tech2?
