Resume cruise control

Post by Steveg » Sat Feb 11, 2017 7:05 pm

Can anyone help ? I have just picked up my new Kia Niro. When cruising on the motorway I can't seem to get the resume option to work after breaking. I can use the + and - options but can't get the resume function to work. I have tried flicking the switch and tried holding it up for 5 secs but neither appears to work. Am I doing something wrong or do I have a problem ?

Hi Steve

I tested this on Tuesday and worked with no issues for me, set cruise control to 70mph let it drive for 5mins, braked so set disappeared from display, pressed resume and set reappeared on dash and cruise automatically accelerated back up to 70mph.

Three conditions:

1- Control Cruise must have been set previously
2- Speed must be enough ( 20mph, more or less)
3- Main display must be set on Cruise mode (no need to touch a thing if you did the #1)

Now move up that switch and enjoy

I have found the 'cruise control' to be very erratic. When set for example at 70 mph, the car accelerates to 75mph for seemingly no reason -has anybody else found anything like this? This can be a little disconcerting?? - Terry (Ireland)

Now after the first 10000 km with my Niro I have the impression that the Niro's cruise control is more "tolerant" than in other cars. Other cars do everything to stick exactly to the requested speed whereas the Niro controls the engines to be in a range of around +/- 3 km/h of the requested speed. As I don't think the sensors are different from other cars it must be the software that does so. Perhaps for economy reasons?
