When you put the transmission in "drive" and the "D" does not show up in the indicator on the dash...then you might need to clean the gear select switch underneath the center console. Because of the electronics...if the gear indicator is not lit up...the cruise will not work. It's a real simple procedure to clean the gear selector switch. Here's a link w/pics to help get the center console off and take the gear select switch out to clean it. The page is for an e32 but should be the same for the e34.

91 735iL

Anyone has an idea what to do when the cruise control doesn't work on a 1994 530i ?
Thanks, Mike
