Standby mode for cruise control

Updated 1/21/2020

Standby mode for cruise control

Cruise control (CCCruise Control) can be deactivated and set in standby mode. This can take place due to driver intervention or automatically.

Standby mode means that the function is selected in the driver display but not activated. In this case, cruise control does not regulate speed.

Standby mode on driver intervention

The cruise control is deactivated and set in standby mode if any of the following occurs:

  • The foot brake is used.
  • The gear selector is moved to N position.
  • The clutch pedal is held depressed for longer than 1 minute.
  • The driver maintains a speed higher than the stored speed for longer than 1 minute.

The driver must then control the speed himself/herself.

A temporary increase in speed with the accelerator pedal, e.g. during overtaking, does not affect the setting - the car returns to the last stored speed when the accelerator pedal is released.

Automatic standby mode

Automatic standby mode may occur if:

  • wheels lose traction
  • engine speed is too low/high
  • brake temperature is too high
  • speed falls below 30 km/h (20 mph).

The driver must then control the speed himself/herself.
