CRUISE CONTROL

(where provided)
GENERAL
The speed regulator (CRUISE CON-
TROL), with electronic control, makes
it possible to drive the car at the required
speed, without pressing the accelerator
pedal. This reduces driving fatigue dur-
ing long journeys (specially on high-
ways) because the speed memorised is
automatically maintained.
IMPORTANT The Cruise Control must
be activated at speeds of between 45
and 180 k.p.h., in fourth, fifth and sixth
gears.

DEVICE ENGAGEMENT
Turn knurled ring A-fig. 57 to Ü.
The device cannot be engaged in first
speed or reverse. It is recommended to
engage it in 4th or higher speeds. Trav-
elling downhill with the device engaged,
the car speed may increase more than
the memorised one.
When the device is activated the in-
strument panel warning light Ü turns
on (on certain versions together with a
message on the display) (see section
"Warning lights and messages").
TO MEMORISE SPEED
Proceed as follows:
❒ turn the knurled ring A-fig. 57 to
Ü and press the accelerator pedal to
the required speed;
❒ push the stalk upwards (+) or down-
wards (–), then release it: car speed
is memorised and it is therefore pos-
A0E0095m
sible to release the accelerator ped-
al.
In the case of need (when overtaking
for instance) acceleration is possible sim-
ply pressing the accelerator pedal: re-
leasing the accelerator pedal, the car will
return to the speed memorised previ-
ously.
TO RESET THE MEMORISED
SPEED
If the device has been disengaged for
example pressing the brake or clutch
pedal, the memorised speed can be re-
set as follows:
❒ accelerate gradually until reaching a
speed approaching the one memo-
rised;
