    Default Cruise Control... How do you work it?

    Hi everyone,

    Can someone simplify how you use Cruise Control on your car... like how to turn it on, adjust the speed etc?

    Only reason I ask, is that when im using it and I try to adjust the speed... it'll play silly beggers and will go off and wont come back on again until I turn the engine off to reset!

    top button to turn on, then top button again to increase speed or lower button to decrease speed.
    back button or brake pedal to turn off
    bottom button to turn back on and automatically go back to the speed it was before it was turned off, or top button to set it to the speed you are currently doing

    Yea i'm aware of the brakes bit... also a possibility could be dodgy... might be worth giving it a clean

    Yea thought so... I'm thinking I could be doing it wrong which 'confuses the system'... i'll keep an eye on it

    Cheers buddy, i'll keep a closer eye on it and give it a clean to see if it'll do the job... if not i'll let you know

    when your driving with the cruise control on make sure you dont rest your left leg on the clutch or brake it will turn off cruise else

    if if turns off without any user input on the stalk or pedal then it could be the mechanism on the clutch malfunctioning. In normal operation you can press either the brake or clutch to turn it off. Try putting your foot under the clutch and pulling it up as far as it will go .... then try to re-ingage the cc

    The clutch spring is quick to fix if that is the problem.
