hey guys i just got my fairmont(see pik gallery)
iv been pushing buttons but i cant get my cruse cortrol to work
its a standard ef fairmont interior the only upgrade is the stereo(love the 800watt amp) and my fuel gauge needs to be recentered how much does this cost and is that why the little range km thing keeps beeping at me???(because it thinks its empty???)

also with the speed set, if you press "set +" it will increase speed by 2km/h. And if you press "set -" it will decrease speed by 2 km/h

is the beeping noise coming when you have less that 75kms or so left on the range on your trip comp? if it is, its the trip comp reminding you to fill up because you have very little fuel left

yes it beeps at 80km's left, then (i think)60k's, 40 and everything below 20. just press the reset button and it will stop beeping.

blown fuse? - also cruise will not engage if your speed is below 40kph

Never had a working gauge in mine, and ive had that to the point of filling it up with 73 litres. Also had it cutout on me about three times while going round croners or ont takeoff :D I can only just make it through 7 days it seems!
