Let the dealer send you the harness, you can have it modified at your end. The blocking diode is an addition in this harness but it can be sourced from your neighbourhood electronic components store. I have already mentioned it in the thread if you didn't notice:

The Aliexpress cables may not have this diode - please check prior to installation! These diodes are available at your neighbour electronic component shops and retail for Rs. 1 a piece.
You will already have the harness from the T41 connector (stalks) to the T32 connector (cluster) in place.

@Gannu_1
Do you know if it's possible to do a cruise control retrofit on a Polo 1.6 petrol?
I've got the same BCM as you.

It is doable for any Polo irrespective of the engine specs. Just that the BCM should be compatible. Its been ages since I accessed ELSAWIN. Let me check the relevant current flow diagram.

In the meantime, can you access the ECU's connector and share a pic? Take all the time you want and do it.

Haven't had the time to take pics of my car but found some on the forum.

Hope this is good enough.

Pin no. 24 of the ECU.

For those wary about doing this as a DIY, someone suggested contacting a Bosch service center. I see one in Bangalore at Banerghatta Road, called SK Karzone.

Any idea if they are knowledgeable about doing ECU work?

I was considering asking them if they can fit such an after-market cruise control kit for my 2011 SX4.

Thoughts?

Hi gannu!

I had been researching on retrofitting a cruise control on my Jetta Comfortline Mk6 for quite some time when I stumbled upon your thread. I have gone through your DIY for retrofitting cruise control in your Polo and it has been documented really well! Do you have any information on the Jetta too? It would be great if you could help me out.
