Cruise Control

Print

The cruise control is electronically activated and controlled using the vehicle's speed sensor as input when the system is activated. The system is activated and controlled by a series of switches on the end of the headlight Hi/Lo/Flash switch stalk on the left side of the steering column.

When the system is activated, an indicator light in the control panel is illuminated. In addition to the activated/deactivated selections, the cruise control system features switches for acceleration, deceleration and resume.

The system is also deactivated if:



The brake pedal is pressed
 
If equipped, the clutch pedal is pressed
 
On automatic transmissions, if shifted from Drive to Neutral
 
If the vehicle speed is less than the minimum activation speed
 

The operating parameters of the systems are as follows:



Activation speed: 25 mph (40 km/h) or greater
 
Activate and set speed: Press the end of the stalk inward
 
Accelerate: Press the slide switch on the stalk to the left and release increases speed by 0.6 mph (1 km/h)
 
Accelerate: Press the slide switch on the stalk to the left and hold pressed, accelerates until released and sets to current speed
 
Decelerate: Press the end of the stalk inward and release decreases speed by 0.6 mph (1 km/h)
 
Decelerate: Press the end of the stalk inward and hold, decelerates until released and sets to current speed
 
Resume: Press the slide switch on the stalk to the left and release, resumes speed to last programmed speed
