Mercedes SL Cruise Control Module
Nothing signifies classic luxury better than a Mercedes R107 SL cruise control module that was fitted as an upgrade during the 1980s. It was simply outstanding.
What is Mercedes SL Cruise Control module?
In an era when leather seats and a walnut dashboard were limited to just a few motor companies and models around the world, the Mercedes R107 SL offered customers an expensive but aspirational upgrade – cruise control.
The cruise control module could be fitted as an optional extra when purchasing a new Mercedes SL and allowed motorists to pre-set a speed at which the car would cruise along at without the need for manual acceleration. If you were travelling long distances, or ‘touring’ as it became known, the cruise control was an outstanding addition to the car.
It was a thing of luxury, and unsurprisingly Mercedes were one of the early adopters of this technology.
The Mercedes SL Cruise Control Module was seen as a must-have feature for those looking to take their SL to the next level and Mercedes sold many upgrades.
Modern cruise control is much more advanced than the system found in an R107, but it had to start somewhere.
Common issues with Mercedes SL Cruise Control Module
In many ways the Cruise Control feature was ahead of it’s time, and as such, was not without its problems.
Faulty cruise control will either function badly (fluctuating speed, misbehaving cruise) or not at all (irresponsive).
