Cruise control enables the driver to maintain a constant road speed without using the accelerator pedal. This is particularly useful for freeway cruising or for any journey where a constant speed can be maintained for a lengthy period.
The cruise control system has three switches; a master switch on the right hand side of the instrument panel and two control switches marked ‘SET +’ and ‘RES’ mounted on the steering wheel.
CAUTION: Always observe the following precautions:
DO NOT use cruise control when using low range or reverse gears.
Use of ‘sport’ mode is not recommended when cruise control is selected.
ALWAYS switch off the master switch when you no longer intend to use cruise control to avoid accidental activation of cruise control.
DO NOT rest your foot under the accelerator pedal while cruise control is engaged - your foot could become trapped.
Press the master switch (the switch indicator light illuminates whenever the switch is pressed to the ‘on’ position).
Accelerate until the desired cruising speed is reached. This must be above the system's operational minimum speed of 28 mph (45 km/h).
Press the ‘SET +’ switch to set the vehicle speed in the system's memory. Cruise control will now maintain that road speed without the need for operation of the accelerator pedal.
With cruise control operating, speed can be increased for periods of up to 30 seconds, by normal use of the accelerator e.g. for overtaking. When the accelerator is released, road speed will return to the selected cruising speed.
NOTE: If the 30 second period is exceeded, cruise control will automatically disengage. Press the 'RES' switch to re-engage.
DO NOT use cruise control on winding or slippery road surfaces, or in traffic conditions where a constant speed cannot easily be maintained.
