ACC / Disabling "follow mode"?

hello all

I have a MY16 SDV6 ATB with the famous adaptive cruise control (ACC).
are the owners of a MY16 able to disable the "follow mode" so that the ACC is only a "CC" (only cruise control funtion) with a "stubborn" holding of the cruising speed?

disabling by holding the "distance reduce" button long (3 seconds)

my dealer told me, that it's possible from MY17 and I am wondering if somebody of you is able to disable it on a MY16. if yes, do you know which SW do you have on your RRS?
(I can't really believe that's not possible on MY16 because I suppose it's just a SW-update)

why I am asking: the ACC functionality I don't like. If I drive (on German Autobahn) 160km/h on the left side and going into a left curve, on the right side is a truck - the RRS will slow down strongly.. I find it quite dangerous on such velocities..

Thanks!

I didn't think the follow mode could be disabled. Mine's a MY15, but will try it tomorrow on the highway and report back. --

Thank you naks Smile

Looking forward to hear your result

When you push and hold the reduce button for the distance, a message should appear in the IC that the follow mode is deactivated, or something like that... RRS SDV6 MY16

No problem.

I'm assuming I can re-enable it the same way? --

Yes should be so. If you push the increase button, the acc should be reactivated.
If you google a bit, you will find that it's possible on the evoque and also ond Jags RRS SDV6 MY16

Ok, I drove 50km to the physio and 50km back home, most of it on the highway, and I can report that this method does NOT disable the ACC.

I tried with the ACC on and off, and it made no difference. --

I am pushing up this topic..

Can anyone with a MY16 (or MY15) try to disable the follow mode of the ACC?

With the MY17 it works... RRS SDV6 MY16

I do know that you can disable ACC and just have CC on the original RRS using an IID Tool or similar to change the Car Configuration File (CCF). Assuming LR still use CCFs, it might be worth seeing if your dealer, or an independent LR specialist, can alter the CCF for you. 2012 SDV6 - it's missing a couple of cylinders
2008 TDV8 - it was a labour of love and is much missed

Thanks for the answer
Then, you only have the cruise controp without acc permanentely?

My dealer can't help. He asked also for a SW update, but seems there is nothing for MY16

I thought a SW update of the ACC would enable the possibility to disable it.

Even back in 2005 this was a problem with JLR’s ACC, I had it on my 2007 TDv8 and in winter the sensor in the front bumper would get slush/snow on it on the motorway and once the message “sensor blocked” flashed on the dash there was no cruise control at all, not even conventional non-adaptive. It seems that the JLR ostrich still has its head firmly stuck in the sand 12 years later....... 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV - a test car before Seeing if I could go to totally Petrol/Diesel free motoring

That issue with snow-covered acc radar I didn't have

Just wondering if other owners can disable the follow mode... RRS SDV6 MY16

I've got ACC but unfortunately I'm nowhere near my car to see if I can disable follow mode. it's not CC but ISL might be an alternative? MY17 RRS AB
