Cruise Control Switch: Description and Operation
Engagement Switch Operation, Cruise Mode
The turn signal lever mounted engagement switch has several modes of operation. With the switch in the ``On-Auto'' position, the engagement switch
operates as follows:
Switch In Fully Released Position:
System not operational.
System has been engaged previously. The electronic controller is supplying control voltage to the servo unit solenoid valve. The servo unit
solenoid valve regulates vacuum to the servo unit which maintains throttle position for desired speed.
Push Button Depressed And Held
After using accelerator pedal to obtain desired speed, the operator can then momentarily depress the push button switch. The electronic controller will
provide a control voltage to the servo unit solenoid valve and apply the required vacuum to the servo unit to maintain set speed. When a decrease in
speed is desired, the operator may depress and hold the push button with no accelerator pedal pressure. The electronic controller then signals the servo
unit solenoid valve to vent the servo unit to atmosphere, closing the throttle. When push button is released, vehicle will cruise at new desired speed.
Slide Lever Actuation
This switch allows the operator to resume a previously set speed after braking or accelerating. Depressing and releasing the slide switch above 25
mph, will accelerate vehicle until previously set speed is reached. If operator desires to advance speed from set speed, actuating and holding slide switch
will accelerate vehicle until slide switch is released. Vehicle will now maintain new set speed.
