Deactivating/reactivating Adaptive Cruise Control*

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACCAdaptive Cruise Control) can be temporarily put into standby mode and then reactivated.

Deactivating and putting Adaptive Cruise Control in standby mode

P5-1507-ACC hastighet

To temporarily deactivate Adaptive Cruise Control and put it in standby mode:

Press the button on the steering wheel (2).

The symbol in the instrument panel changes color from WHITE to GRAY and the set speed in the center of the speedometer will change from BEIGE to GRAY.


  • If Adaptive Cruise Control is in standby mode, the driver must intervene and regulate both speed and distance to the vehicle ahead.
  • If the vehicle comes too close to a vehicle ahead when Adaptive Cruise Control is in standby mode, the driver can be warned of the short distance by the Distance Alert* function.

Standby mode due to action by the driver

Adaptive Cruise Control will be temporarily deactivated and put in standby mode if:

  • the brakes are applied
  • the gear selector is moved to N
  • the vehicle is driven faster than the set speed for more than 1 minute

Temporarily increasing speed using the accelerator pedal, e.g. when passing another vehicle, will not affect the setting. The vehicle will return to the set speed when the accelerator pedal is released.

Automatic standby mode

Adaptive Cruise Control is dependent on other systems, such as Electronic Stability Control (ESCElectronic Stability Control). If any of these other systems stops working, Adaptive Cruise Control will automatically switch off.


With automatic standby mode, the driver is warned by an acoustic signal and a message on the instrument panel.

  • The driver must then regulate vehicle speed, apply the brakes if necessary, and maintain a safe distance to other vehicles.

Adaptive Cruise Control may go into standby mode if:

  • your vehicle's speed goes below 5 km/h (3 mph) and ACC cannot determine if the vehicle ahead is stationary or if it is another object, e.g. a speed bump.
  • your vehicle's speed goes under 5 km/h (3 mph) and the vehicle ahead turns so that ACC no longer has a vehicle to follow.
  • the driver opens the door.
  • the driver unbuckles the seat belt.
  • the engine speed (rpm) is too low/high.
  • one or more of the wheels lose traction.
  • the brake temperature is high.
  • the parking brake is applied.
  • the camera/radar sensor is covered by snow or heavy rain (the camera lens/radar waves are blocked)

Reactivating Adaptive Cruise Control from standby mode

P5-1507-ACC hastighet

To reactivate ACC from standby mode:

Press the button on the steering wheel (1).

Speed will be set to the most recently stored speed.


A noticeable increase in speed may follow when the speed is resumed with the steering wheel button.
