Standby mode for cruise control

Updated 11/9/2020

Standby mode for cruise control

Cruise control (CCCruise Control) can be deactivated and set in standby mode. This can take place automatically or be done by the driver.

Standby mode means that the function is selected in the driver display but not activated. The symbol in the driver display is extinguished and cruise control does not then regulate the speed.

Standby mode on driver intervention

Cruise control is deactivated and set to standby mode if any of the following occur:

  • The foot brake is used.
  • The gear selector is moved to N position.
  • 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

Activation of automatic standby mode can be due to one of the following:

  • The wheels are losing traction.
  • The 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.
