Help, I’ve got a 1.2 pure tech 2017…
The speed limiter works fine but can’t seem to get the cruise control out of the pause state, tried loads of different things, brought a new brake switch also and brought a scanner and there are no fault codes….
Checked the bulbs all working fine
All it does is the two lines flash at me
Not sure if it’s because it was once a learner car and they done something too it…
Any suggestions please it’s annoying me…

There is not much you can do if you don't have a LEXIA.
LEXIA will tell you if all the switches are working and if the cruise control is enabled. Yes, being an ex-learner car it's possible some features have been "played with".
The OBD2 scanners only display faults in the engine, mostly only stuff that effects anti-pollution.
I am not familiar with later models of the C3 and so I cant say why the pause button is flashing. It's possible the button is stuck? Does it click when you press it?

The pause button is definitely not stuck as all works perfectly with the speed limiter function and with the max sign on the limiter function I’m able to use the memory thing to what the road signs say.
Max is also on with the cc btw

Hi

Obd scanner won't be up to the job.

As mentioned by OZVTR, you need lexia (here)

How did you diagnose the parts you have already changed?
