Documenting Problems That Were Difficult To Find The Answer To

How to Cruise Control a 2017 Renault (Reno)

Can’t quite seem to figure out how to operate the cruise control on a 2017 Renault (Reno) car? Yeah, I couldn’t figure it out, either. The button placement isn’t remotely intuitive.

The switch you want is just below the gear stick.

You want to push this button away from the gear stick. This will enable cruise control on the car. If you push the button in the other direction (towards the gear stick) you will turn on “speed limiting” mode. Don’t do this.

Push the button down away from the gear stick into cruise control mode

On the dash board, between the two meters, the display should inform you that it is in cruise control mode.

The display will inform you that you are in cruise control mode, and a green cruise control icon will light

(Note if that green icon is lit in orange instead then you’ve turned on speed limiting mode by accident. Try rocking the cruise control switch in the other direction.)

Now you can set the cruise control speed by pressing the + button on the steering wheel. You can cancel cruise control by pressing the O button on the steering wheel. You can restore your last set speed by pressing the R button on the steering wheel. Finally, while driving on cruise control, you can use the +/- buttons to increase/decrease your speed slightly.

+ sets the speed, O cancels cruise, R restores the last set speed, and +/- change speed slightly
