I did this to my van and it works very well. Dealership charged about $45 to program the feature. It is fairly easy to do. Van goes to 2000 rpm when activated. Van must be in park with parking brake set also to work. Parts for this are not very expensive either.

Can you retrofit this feature option in an 04 Sprinter???? I would love to be able to have this feature.

I have programmable speed control on an 08 sprinter. It works very well and you can set engine speed to any RPM. Handbrake has to be engaged for it to work

Is this the feature that lets the van idle for long periods of time with no damage to engine? zz

It's not good to let diesels run @ low idle. The noise is detonation, flame fronts colliding. I'm to install the constant RPM option, High idle.

The 04-06 models are the same and the high Idle switch is for those models, unfortunately there is only one speed setting, 2000 rpm which is a bit high. I've done the install start to finish including the programming. The 08 model is a completely different beast, which sounds pretty cool if you can interactively change speed.
