Normal (Fixed Speed) Cruise Control Mode

In addition to Adaptive Cruise Control mode, a normal (fixed speed) Cruise Control mode is available for cruising at fixed speeds. The normal Cruise Control mode is designed to maintain a set cruising speed without requiring the driver to operate the accelerator. Cruise Control can only be operated if the vehicle speed is above 20 mph (32 km/h).

To change between the different cruise modes, press the MODE button when the system is in either the OFF, READY or SET state. Pressing of the MODE button in any state will result in changing to the new Mode in the OFF state.

WARNING!
In the normal Cruise Control mode, the system will not react to vehicles ahead. In addition, the proximity warning does not activate and no alarm will sound even if you are too close to the vehicle ahead since the presence of the vehicle ahead nor the vehicle-tovehicle distance is detected. Be sure to maintain a safe distance between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead. Always be aware which mode is selected.

To Set A Desired Speed

When the vehicle reaches the speed desired, press the SET - button and release. The EVIC will display the set speed.

NOTE: You must observe the display when setting or changing speed, not the speedometer.

To Vary The Speed Setting

There are two ways to change the set speed:

• Use the accelerator pedal to adjust the vehicle to the desired speed and press the SET - button.

• Tap the RES + or SET - button to increase or decrease the set speed in 1 mph (1.6 km/h) increments respectively.

Hold the RES + or SET - button for 5 mph (8 km/h) increments.

To Cancel

The system will disable normal Cruise Control without erasing the memory if:

• You softly tap or depress the brake pedal.

• You press the CANCEL button.

• The Electronic Stability Control/Traction Control System (ESC/TCS) activates.

To Resume

Press the RES + button and then remove your foot from the accelerator pedal. The EVIC will display the last set speed.

To Turn Off

The system will turn off and erase the set speed in memory if:

• You push the ON/OFF button.

• You turn off the ignition.

• You engage Four-Wheel Drive Low.

If the Cruise Control system is turned off and reactivated, the system will return to the last driver setting (ACC or Normal Cruise Control).
