Renault and Dacia- How to Use Cruise Control – Cruise Control Explained
Hello it’s Barry here from Linders Renault
and Dacia in Chapelizod. Today I’m going to show you how to use Renault’s cruise control
and speed limiting systems. So the first thing that we need to do is to
locate the switch to activate the systems. I’m in a Renault Clio at present. The Clio
and the Captur have the same system adn the switches are in the same place.
So between the driver and passenger seats, you’ll see the switch here.
There’s two settings on the switch. If we push it forward, it activates the speed limiter
system, if we pull it backwards, it activates the cruise control system. You’ll know which
system is active because it displays it in the centre of the dashboard.
So firstly I’ll show you the speed limiter. It’s controlled here by the buttons on the
left hand side of the steering wheel. We press the plus button to increase the speed. So
if I set the speed to 50km/h, the car will stop you from accelerating once you hit the
50km/h mark. The benefits of this system is that you can
set it to the speed limit and the car will actually prevent you from speeding.
The second system then is the cruise control. So if we flip the switch backwards, we’ll
see the dashboard now displays cruise control. This system is very very good on long journeys,
mostly used for motorway driving. It reduces fatigue on long journeys and also increases
your fuel economy. So to activate the system, generally you’d
increase your speed to 120km/h, this button is to set your speed. So once you set that
the speed that you’re doing will come up in this screen here. You can then take your feet
away from the pedals and the car will maintain its speed.
You can increase and decrease by 2km/h each time you press this button. If you would lke
to deactivate this system, you can simply press the 0 button. That will deactivate the
cruise control and the car will start to slow down.
If you then want to set your speed to a lesser speed you can press the set button again.
Alternatively you can press the R button which will resume and the car will accelerate to
the speed which you had previously saved. If you have any further questions or would
like us to show you how to use your cruise control or speed limiting settings, simply
