If you have CC fitted The brake pedal has to be pressed after starting the engine and before switching on the CC. The only time this has caught me out was leaving a Motorway Service Area and not needing to use the brakes before trying to use the CC. The CC controller needs to "see" the brake pedal switch check before it will switch on.Flattie said:Thanks to both who've answered but it doesn't work, the 'set' doesn't light up and it says in the manual that on a manual transmission car you should tap the brake pedal when starting to set cruise control, think this might be one for the garage.
It is news to you because of your car starting habits, all CC systems do a safety check before engaging and this includes the brake pedal switch CCcontacts.RichieD76 said:I don't know if it's just habit or not but I always have my foot brake engaged before removing the handbrake anyway to prevent roll or if someone were to hit the car before I've done final move off observations. So maybe that's why it's never been a problem for me. But in all honesty every car I've ever owned has had cruise control and this "brake before setting" is news to me.
Yes I would agree, but only once after starting the engine. I have yet to see instructions that don't loose a little in translation. I am sure the folk who bother to read the manual get the message.thunderbird said:Surely it should say that to "activate" thecruisecontrol you have to press the brake pedal before going through all the other steps described above.
That sounds right.You must have used the brakes (brake pedal) since the engine was started or the CC will not switch on.oorya said:Not sure if this is of much use but I have a 2008 carens with c.c. and don't normally have to depress the brake pedal to set it on, except in very rare occurences when the c.c won't come on until I do give a quick press of the brake pedal.
