The problem is that the cruise control dose not come on at all. I have done the easy fixs from the above article with no luck. where else should I look?? Thanks DaveWhat kind of problem are you having? Not coming on? Not holding speed? What?
Inspired by a review of the Evora S in this morning's New York Times, which mentioned that the test car had a malfunctioning cruise control, I thought I would pass on a couple of tips for those who find themselves having the same problem. The Evora's cruise control, like all modern cars, relies...www.lotustalk.com
I don't have a code scanner yet. I am not sure what scanner will work for a lotus evora.I would meter out the connections for the switches checking the clockspring and connections on page 56 carefully as described in the simple fix link. I've had clockspring problems with other cars in the past.
Have you checked for soft obd codes?
According to the PO the cruise worked. No on indication on the dash. I wouldn't think the switches would get that much use that they would go bad, but this is a LotusOP, these are the circuits/components involved in the cruise control:

Since you already replaced the brake switch and clutch position sensor, the only other things involved are the clock spring, and the steering wheel buttons. But to @bfreidah's point, if you aren't even getting the cruise control "On" icon on the dash, then it's possible that either the steering wheel buttons aren't working, the clock spring is bad, or the feature hasn't been enabled in the ECU (can only be modified using TechCenter).
I would test the left-hand switch buttons for continuity when pressed, and also resistance values.
I don't recall if you said the wrench or MIL light was showing, but here's some info from the EMR section of the service notes that might help troubleshoot as well:According to the PO the cruise worked.

Tell me how do you do this adjustment and I will try it. Thanks DaveFollow my saga. Its probably a clutch pedal height adjustment issue. Hopefully they change the system on the Emira. You should be able to adjust the switch, not just the pedal height. I raised mine, probably 1 turn too much recently... As new clutch has worn in, its time to adjust. PIA little job. Drove to Pitt, 2 days on track. BIG blip on carousel gave me the wrench. Went away after 30 seconds. Now comes on for 10 seconds every restart....same as the other one..........
Warning, laying on back under there may result in stuck human!!!
