To activate "regular" cruise control in any driving condition (i.e. snow or not) - press and hold the "interval" button for about 1 second. You'll see a green box appear between ACC and LKAS with the text "Cruise Control" indicating that just "regular" operation is engaged. To switch back to ACC/LSF, press and hold the "interval" button again for about 1 second.I have a question and wonder if anybody knows the solution. During snow, when the radar is blocked and not working and we have no access to ACC, how can we use regular cruise control? Is it even possible?
I haven't had the chance to look through the Insight's owners manual but I remember reading the owners manual on my previous cars to not use cruise control during inclement weather. Found the below article from allstate explaining more about this.I have a question and wonder if anybody knows the solution. During snow, when the radar is blocked and not working and we have no access to ACC, how can we use regular cruise control? Is it even possible?
Fact: Don’t Drive With Cruise Control in Wet Weather
While you may believe that driving at a consistent speed in rain or snow will increase your safety, driving with cruise control when the roads are wet may actually be more dangerous. The system’s sensors may be affected by the moisture, which means they may not be as reliable, says Edmunds. Additionally, you may not have the same traction as you would without cruise control. For example, when you take your foot off the gas to step on the brake, some of the car’s weight shifts to the front tires — providing a little more traction. With the cruise control on, you won’t have that shift and may not be able to gain traction as quickly as needed, according to Edmunds. Because cruise control is only disabled when you apply your brakes, it is best to turn it off before the roads are wet. https://www.allstate.com/blog/driving-safety-myth-or-fact/
Maybe the car slowing down to exit is still in the field of view of the radar sensor?I recently started using adaptive cruise control and now it’s all I use. I would say around 95% of the time because I feel it keeps that needle
Closer to the green than I could. I still cancel it like when getting off the highway go Into sport with three left pedal hits to recharge faster . Anyway yes the dangerous flaw . Happened to me 3 times now . Driving In the right lane going 70mph . I know you will ask so yes I only
Have the distance set to 1 car length. I’m using my cruise control. When I drive by anyone who gets off the exit my car goes crazy and brakes like
There is someone in front of me. Thankfully the few times this has happened there was no one behind me . I would say the exiting highway car was 2-4 car lengths away . The car slows me down at least 10mph very quickly
If I see someone getting off to turn left or right in front of me, I usually goose the accelerator pedal just a bit to prevent it from slowing down or hitting the brakes too hard.. After it stops tracking that car, it resumes it's normal operation. Just have to learn to drive with it..Thanks. I will just turn off the acc next time I’m on the highway. It is fun to use that feature on back roads under 50mph. If the car is going slower than my cruise it works great keeping me 1 car length behind without having to do anything but steer
As an owner of many older Honda cars/technology, I honestly de-activated ACC within first week of ownership and only use "regular" cruise control because it feels more 'familiar' and translates between old and new models. "Regular cruise" just follows the speed set point you've entered, without engaging the radar for distance feedback or speed adjustment.So after owning this car for about a year I was thumbing through the manual looking for something and I noticed you can turn off ACC and use the old fashion cruise control, that they call Cruise Mode. Here is how...
