Cruise Control
With cruise control, a speed of about 25 mph (40 km/h)
or more can be maintained without keeping your foot
on the accelerator. Cruise control does not work
at speeds below about 25 mph (40 km/h).
Cruise control will not work if the parking brake is set, or
if the master cylinder brake ?uid level is low.
If the brakes are applied, the cruise control shuts off.
{ CAUTION:
Cruise control can be dangerous where you cannot
drive safely at a steady speed. So, do not use the
cruise control on winding roads or in heavy traffic.
Cruise control can be dangerous on slippery roads.
On such roads, fast changes in tire traction can
cause excessive wheel slip, and you could lose
control. Do not use cruise control on slippery roads.
If the vehicle?s StabiliTrak
/Traction Control System
(TCS) begins to limit wheel spin while the cruise control
is on, the cruise control automatically disengages.
See StabiliTrak
System on page 4-6 or Traction
Control System (TCS) on page 4-8. When road
conditions allow you to safely use it again, the cruise
control can be turned back on.
These controls are located at the end of the
multifunction lever.
