How to Use Cruise Control on a Car

Cruise control (also known as speed control or auto-cruise, or tempomat or auto pilot in some countries) is a system that automatically controls the speed of a motor vehicle. The system is a servomechanism that takes over the throttle of the car to maintain a steady speed as set by the driver.(


Many Nigerians import expensive cars with lots of features, but never care to explore those features that came with the car they purchased. In today's blog, we will learn how to activate Cruise Control on your car.

Step 1 - Start out on a road and drive until you are past 40 mph (65 kph).


Step 2 - On your steering wheel or on the levers on the steering wheel, you will see a button or a toggle to activate cruise control.  

Hold down your foot steadily on the gas pedal so it does not drop its speed.


Step 3  - On your steering wheel, while still holding the gas pedal steady, press the  cruise on/off and a button that says Set Coast or just coast.

If you have a steering wheel that has a lever to activate the cruise control, look at the arrow on the cruise that says which way to hit it in order to activate the cruise control.


Step 4 - When you release the gas pedal, you may notice that your engine's Revolutions Per Minute(RPM) have dropped. 

This is normal it just means that your vehicle's cruise control has been activated. A cruise light will come on in the gauge pod that tells you that you have cruise control activated.
Congratulations! You have successfully activated cruise control or auto-pilot mode!

Step 5 - Deactivation of Cruise Control

In order to deactivate cruise control, depress the brake pedal or press the cruise on/off button again and you will gain control of your vehicle's accelerator.
