Alan_b, was it you who asked me about this at the pub today?

Anyway, according to my '95 owner's manual, the procedure is:

1. Set up the ACC the way you want it to come up every time you switch on.

2. Press and release the top-right and bottom-right buttons ("Defrost" and "Vent") simultaneously (the ACC and display LEDs will start flashing).

It also says "Note that you must wait at least 4 minutes after switching off the ignition before you can test the programmed functions". I think this is because if you fiddle with the ACC, it doesn't "forget" the current settings until the ignition has been off for four minutes.

To go back to the default startup settings, press and release "OFF" and "AUTO" simultaneously.

I've found that, being computer-literate, I initially tended to hold one button down, then press the other (like using a shift key). However, you need to press both buttons at exactly the same time or it won't work.

Bill,
Yes it was me who asked about this.

Thanks so much. This will put to rest one of the most irritating things I feel I've had to put up with since I bought the car.

BTW, the loud wooshing noise you heard when I drove you in my car, beleive it or not, is the downpipe which has split in at least four places!

Wow! The exhaust downpipe?
I wouldn't have thought that in a million years. When I had a leak at the downpipe, I had "jet-engine" noises - a sort of whine/whistle/hiss noise. Your noise sounded like the induction leak I had on mine when it blew off a hose.

You live and learn...

And it took me almost three hours to get home. I couldn't believe the traffic on the M3 for a Sunday evening, where I spent a lot of time sitting still and the rest of the time crawling along. The M25 was only a bit better.

Anyway, it's funny but I like the ACC defaults.

BillJ/.

Yep, first few miles of M3 London - bound was stop start, a few miles in nearly an hour at one stage, but then not too bad (170 miles, in 3 hours in the end) less than 2 and half going.

p.s:
( Dinner was good - "sufficient" portion shall we say, straight to chippie when I got back

It took me 2hrs 15 mins to travel the 70 odd miles from the New Forest to Bath. On this journey I think I saw enough Rover 216s, Escort 1.6 Encores and cars pulling caravans for a whole lifetime.
