The cruise control on your model year 2019 and older Slingshot can be set in any gear. To do so, though, the vehicle’s speed must be greater than 25 mph (40 km/h). Note that the set speed will vary slightly in hilly terrain.
The cruise control switch (1) and set button (2) are located on the turn signal lever of your Slingshot.
To set the speed:
1. Move the cruise control ON/OFF/RES switch (1) to ON to activate the cruise.
2. Accelerate to the desired speed. Press and release the SET switch (2) at the tip of the lever.
To temporarily cancel the cruise control and allow use of the resume feature, either depress the brake pedal or depress the clutch pedal. If you depress the throttle pedal to accelerate, the cruise control will resume the previously set speed when the pedal is released.
To resume operation at the previously set speed, move the ON/OFF/RES switch to RES.
To cancel the cruise control and erase the set speed from memory, move the ON/OFF/RES switch to OFF.
To increase the speed setting, move and release the ON/OFF/RES to RES to increase the set speed in approximately 1 mph (1 to 2 km/h) increments. Move and hold the ON/OFF/RES switch in the RES position to accelerate to a new SET speed. The speed will reset when the switch is released or after a maximum acceleration of approximately 10 mph (16 km/h), whichever comes first.
To reduce the speed setting, press and release the SET switch to decrease speed in approximately 1 mph (1 to 2 km/h) increments. Press and hold the SET switch to decelerate to a new SET speed (resets when switch is released), or to the minimum cruise speed of 25 mph (40 km/h).
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 fifth gear may cause the cruise to disengage. Make sure to return to the correct gear before resuming cruise control.
Cruise control will not engage if brake lights are not operating properly.
Cruise control will be disabled if there is an active stability or traction control event. It also will be disabled if there are multiple wheel speed sensor faults or a communication error with the electronic stability module.
Warning: Improper operation of cruise control could cause loss of control and result in serious injury or death. Follow all cruise operation procedures carefully. Never use cruise control when roads are wet or slippery. Do not use cruise control when driving in heavy or congested traffic.
