AUTOMATIC SPEED LIMITER (ASL) CONTROLS

WARNING

In certain conditions, such as a steep downhill gradient, the vehicle's speed may exceed the set speed limit. This is because engine braking is unable to maintain or reduce the vehicle's speed. Driver intervention may be required.

  1. Press to switch between Cruise control and ASL. The systems cannot be used simultaneously. The ASL warning lamp illuminates when ASL is active. See AUTOMATIC SPEED LIMITER (ASL) (AMBER).

    NOTES

    ASL only operates at speeds between 18 mph (30 km/h) and 150 mph (240 km/h). However, the speed limit can be set while the vehicle is stationary.

  2. Set/increase the speed limit: The set speed limit is displayed in the Message center.

    When a speed has been set, the engine responds normally up to the set speed. Further accelerator pressure does not increase the speed beyond the set speed, unless sudden, rapid acceleration (kickdown) is applied. If kickdown is initiated, ASL is suspended.

  3. Resume ASL assistance: ASL only resumes if the vehicle's speed is less than the set speed and greater than 18 mph (30 km/h). If these criteria are not met, a message is displayed in the Message center.

  4. Decrease the speed limit: The set speed limit is displayed in the Message center.

  5. Suspend ASL assistance: ASL can also be suspended by applying sudden, rapid acceleration (kickdown).
