cruise control tricky to operate
Can someone enlighten me pls regarding switching on of the cruise control .
don't know if I'm stupid or there is some special procedure required to get it to operate.
There seem to be no logic to how it works in my car. (2.4 jtd 175hp)
when I start the engine with the cruise control switch turned on, it's like a lottery. sometimes the control light 'the green gauge' is on and the system works fine and sometimes it's not activated.
Even if I'm lucky and it switches on, but is not actually used for say 5 minutes, it deactivates and would not switch back on later. is that how it's supposed to work?
Driving in 6th gearI keep the increase-decrease knob on for 3-5 sec (with main switch in on of course) , but no result. Than I stop, start the engine again and suprise!! system is activated.
The manual states that to start the cruise control you only need to be in 4,5 or 6 th gear, keep the 'increase' for more than 3 sec, with main switch on and that's it. Not in my alfa unfortunately.
Did anyone encounter similar problems, i'd be grateful for any hints.
many thanks in advance
