BASIC ASCD SYSTEM
Refer to Owner's Manual for ASCD operating instructions.
Automatic Speed Control Device (ASCD) allows a driver to keep vehicle at predetermined constant speed without depressing accelerator pedal. Driver can set vehicle speed in advance between approximately 40 km/h (25 MPH) and 144 km/h (89 MPH) .
ECM controls throttle angle of electric throttle control actuator to regulate engine speed.
The ASCD operation status is indicated by two indicators (CRUISE and SET on the information display) on the combination meter. If any malfunction occurs in the ASCD system, SET indicator blinks and ASCD control is deactivated.
NOTE: Always drive vehicle in a safe manner according to traffic conditions and obey all traffic laws.
Press MAIN switch. (CRUISE is indicated on the information display.)
When vehicle speed reaches a desired speed between approximately 40 km/h (25 MPH) and 144 km/h (89
MPH), press SET/COAST switch. (Then SET is indicated on the information display in combination meter.)
If the RESUME/ACCELERATE switch is pressed during cruise control driving, increase the vehicle speed until the switch is released or vehicle speed reaches maximum speed controlled by the system.
And then ASCD will maintain the new set speed.
When any of following conditions exist, cruise operation will be canceled.
CANCEL switch is pressed
More than 2 switches on ASCD steering switch are pressed at the same time (Set speed will be cleared)
Brake pedal is depressed
Selector lever position is changed to N, P or R (CVT models)
Vehicle speed decreased to 13 km/h (8 MPH) lower than the set speed
Engine coolant temperature is slightly higher than the normal operating temperature, CRUISE indicator may blink slowly. When the engine coolant temperature decreases to the normal operating temperature, CRUISE indicator will stop blinking and the cruise operation will be able to work by pressing SET/COAST switch or RESUME/ACCELERATE switch.
Malfunction for some self-diagnosis regarding ASCD control: SET indicator will blink quickly. If MAIN switch is turned to OFF while ASCD is activated, all of ASCD operations will be canceled and vehicle speed memory will be erased.
When the SET/COAST switch is pressed during cruise control driving, decrease vehicle set speed until the switch is released. And then ASCD will maintain the new set speed.
When the RESUME/ACCELERATE switch is pressed after canceling operation other than pressing the MAIN switch, vehicle speed will return to last set speed. To resume vehicle set speed, vehicle condition must meet following conditions.
Brake pedal is released
Clutch pedal is released (M/T models)
Selector lever position is other than P andN (CVT models)
Vehicle speed is greater than 40 km/h (25 MPH) and less than 144 km/h (89 MPH)
