    Default How Do You Cancel Cruise Control?

    According to the manual, you press 'O' on the cruise control stalk to cancel cruise. This appears on the upper face of the stalk. I can't fathom this at all. There is nothing to press, only the 'rocker' to set/ slow down. Or am I missing something? The only way to cancel cruise seems to be to touch the brake pedal...

    Also, something I noticed the other day, if you travel 30 mph more than what you set the CC at, its also switch's off.....noticed this when I had my dads motor, had CC at 60 and then after a while it went off, also whislt at 60 then accelerated and it again switched off!

    I was impressed!

    on the arm with the rocker to set/slow

    there is a button nearer to the dash that cancels the cruise

    i did not know it was there till someone told me about it

    look carefully, put your finger on the rocker and look infront nearer the dash

    The rocker on the end of the binacle is as follows: -

    Push in the upper area on the end to turn on Cruise control, push the lower edge to turn it off again.

    Also press the brake or clutch pedals to dis-engage the cruise control...
    If you find the cruise control wont come on, then it could be you are resting your foot on one of the pedals, or even the return spring in the clutch pedal is weak, and not breaking the contact within the switch.

    Try not to accelerate with the cruise control engaged as it will try to cut fuelling or apply braking function and so waste vast amounts of fuel..

    Regular use of the cruise control will also show as an general increase in the cost of driving...that is pence per mile.
    This is because -
    Cruise control cannot differentiate the environmental conditions...only "too fast or too slow" sometimes resulting in inappropriate control functions.

    People can assess environment and other parameters, not just speed...and therefore may make more appropriate and efficient fuelling / braking control decisions.

    Except at 5 to 9 on a monday morning when you're running late and have your foot down.

    That's not how mine works!!

    The upper button is on, the lower button is resume (ie go back to the last speed cc was set to before it went off) and then there's a 3rd button behind the other 2 which is the off button

    I sit corrected...

    However I don't use it cause it is so heavy on the fuel bill.
    Hope my comments weren't too mis-leading or confusing...

    I regularly do runs in the car of 8 to 10 hours ((540miles) which I often do it in one run without a stop) and cruise is a must for me. I actually think it saves fuel as the ECU has much better control of the fuel mapping for sitting at a constant speed than a human who is constantly speeding up and slowing as your foot goes on and off the accelerator and waisting more fuel.

    As well as I no longer get leg cramp and a sore knee from trying to keep my foot at the same angle on the accelerator for hours on end (like my old Vectra B) so I'm more than happy to sit on cruise.

    And another thing! Just for info to others that may not know but cruise cant be engaged unless you've pressed the brake pedal once from starting. So when you pull away from the garage at some motorway service station and speed up onto the motorway then try and flick on the cruise again but it wont come on, just press the brake (gently) then cruise will work.

    HTH to someone.
