To set cruise control, the vehicle speed must be above 30 mph (48 km/h). Vehicles with a manual transmission can be set in gears 3 through 5. The set speed will vary slightly in hilly terrain.
Certain factors can affect the vehicle's ability to engage cruise control:
- The cruise control will not resume a pre-set speed if the resulting acceleration or deceleration rate is too high or too low. For example, resuming a set speed from 30 mph (48 km/h) while in 5th gear may cause the cruise to disengage.
- Cruise control may not engage if the brake lights are not operating properly.
- Cruise control will be disabled if there is an active stability or traction control event.
- Cruise control will be disabled if there are multiple wheel speed sensor faults or a communication error with the electronic stability module.
The cruise control buttons are located on the right side of the steering wheel.
