How do you activate cruise control?
To use Cruise Control, turn it on first by pressing the button on the end of the control stalk behind the lower right side of the steering wheel.

How do you use cruise control while driving?
Cruise control is a feature that helps reduce such fatigue drivers would feel while driving a long distance. The system imitates the way human drivers drive. But instead of pressing the accelerator pedal, it uses an actuator to control the throttle and helps your car continue cruising at the same speed.
Is there a fuze for cruise control?
The cruise control fuse is normally found in the fuse panel located below the steering wheel. Remove the cover of the fuse panel and locate the fuse for the cruise control using the fuse diagram on the fuse panel. If so, install a fresh fuse of the same amperage.
What is the difference between speed control and cruise control?
What’s the difference between cruise control and a speed limiter. When you’re using a speed limiter, you are fully in control of the car. You have to keep pressing the accelerator to keep it moving. Cruise control takes control of the accelerator to maintain a steady speed.
Is it bad to leave cruise control on?
TOM: You’re right that leaving the main cruise control switch in the “on” position will not harm the cruise-control system in any way.
Is it OK to use cruise control all the time?
No. The cruise-control mechanism itself should outlast the car, no matter how often you use it. But using the cruise control around town is not a good idea, in our humble opinion.
Can you brake on cruise control?
You can brake while using cruise control. But applying the foot brake manually automatically shuts off the cruise settings. An alternative to stepping on the brake pedal is using the decelerate button on your car’s cruise control panel. Typically, you can adjust the speed setting by tapping up or down.
Is cruise control worth the money?
In the long run, like on long highway journeys, cruise control has the potential to increase your fuel efficiency by 10 to 15 percent. Most people prefer driving at normal speeds, but when the road is wide and the visibility good, you can end up speeding. Simply set a speed limit and let cruise control do all the work.
What does r a mean on cruise control?

Does cruise control use more fuel?
Generally speaking, yes. Cruise control can help you become more fuel-efficient and can help you save an average of 7-14% on gas thanks to its ability to maintain a continuous speed. In comparison, the constant change in acceleration and deceleration of the driver placing their foot over the pedals can eat more gas.
When should cruise control not be used?
Don’t use cruise control when it’s raining, snowing, or when there are wet/icy roads in general. While some newer vehicles have features that help your car handle wet roads and rain even while cruise is on, it’s best to be in total control of your car when you are driving in these conditions.
How does cruise control slow down car?
