Kia Sportage: Cruise control system
The cruise control system allows you to program the vehicle to maintain a constant speed without resting your foot on the accelerator pedal. With cruise control, you can set and automatically maintain any speed of between 40 km/h (24 mph) and 160 km/h (96 mph).
WARNING - Cruise control Do not use the cruise control feature under the following conditions: вЂў Heavy or unsteady traffic вЂў Slippery or winding roads вЂў Situations that involve varying speeds
To set cruise control speed: 1. Push the CRUISE ON-OFF button on the steering wheel, to turn the system on. The CRUISE indicator light in the instrument cluster will illuminate. 2. Accelerate to the desired speed, which must be more than 40 km/h (24 mph) and less than 160 km/h (96 mph).
WARNING If the cruise control is left on, (CRUISE indicator light in the instrument cluster illuminated) the cruise control can be switched on accidentally. Keep the cruise control system off (CRUISE indicator light OFF) when cruise control is not in use.
3. Push down the - / SET switch, and release it at the speed you want. The вЂњSETвЂќ indicator light in the instrument cluster will illuminate. Release the accelerator at the same time. The desired speed will automatically be maintained. The SET function cannot be activated until approximately 2 seconds after the CRUISE ON-OFF button has been engaged. On a steep grade, the vehicle may momentarily slow down while going downhill.
To cancel cruise control, do one of the following: вЂў Press the brake pedal. вЂў Press the clutch pedal with a manual transaxle or shift into N (Neutral) with an automatic transaxle. вЂў Pull the CANCEL switch. Each of these actions will cancel cruise control operation (the вЂњSETвЂќ indicator light in the instrument cluster will go OFF), but it will not turn the system off. If you wish to resume cruise control operation, push up the + / RES switch located on your steering wheel.You will return to your previously preset speed. To turn cruise control off, do one of the following: вЂў Push the CRUISE ON-OFF button (the CRUISE indicator light in the instrument cluster will go OFF). вЂў Turn the ignition off.

To increase cruise control set speed: Follow either of these procedures: вЂў Push up the + / RES switch and hold it. Your vehicle will accelerate. Release the switch at the speed you want. вЂў Push up the + / RES switch and release it immediately. The cruising speed will increase 1.6 km/h (1 mph) by one touch and will be memorized to the reset speed. To temporarily accelerate with the cruise control on If you want to speed up temporarily when the cruise control is on, depress the accelerator pedal. Increased speed will not interfere with cruise control operation or change the set speed. To return to the set speed, take your foot off the accelerator.
To decrease the cruising speed: Follow either of these procedures: вЂў Push down the - / SET switch and hold it. Your vehicle will gradually slow down. Release the switch at the speed you want to maintain. вЂў Push down the - / SET switch and release it immediately.

To resume cruising speed at more than 40 km/h (24 mph): If any method other than the CRUISE ON-OFF switch was used to cancel cruising speed and the system is still activated, the most recent set speed will automatically resume when the + / RES switch is pushed up. It will not resume, however, if the vehicle speed has dropped below 40 km/h (24 mph).
