About Cruise Control Switchs
A motor vehicle’s cruise control function can help to make longer drives more comfortable and can even reduce fuel consumption and costs. It also enables the driver to maintain legal speeds and avoid an expensive fine – or worse. Cruise control is most suitable for those who are going to be driving at a steady cruising speed without constantly stopping and starting. It is therefore ideal for motorway driving.
Different cars have a different layout for their cruise control system but the part of the system that activates it, the Mercedes-Benzcruise control switch, is normally found either on the steering wheel or one of the steering column control stalks.
There are several functions that the Mercedes-Benzcruise control switch operates. The principal controls are to set the cruise control, cancel it, resume it and switch it on or off.
To start the cruise control involves accelerating to the chosen speed and, when it is reached, pressing the “set” button on the Mercedes-Benzcruise control switch. The car will then keep to the speed that the driver has chosen without having to touch the accelerator.
To turn off the cruise control requires either the application of the brake or pressing the “Cancel” or “On/Off” buttons on the Mercedes-Benzcruise control switch. In most vehicles, there is a “Resume” button on the Mercedes-Benzcruise control switch, which will allow the driver to return to the previously set speed without re-programming the system.
- Most people think of silver when they think of a Mercedes, but that iconic colour was an accident. Just before a race in 1934, the white-painted W25 was found to be 1kg over the weight limit. The paint was quickly removed, the weight limit reached, and the car won the race.
- The Popemobile is a Mercedes Benz M-Class SUV. It's not a standard model, however, and has some added features like an inbuilt oxygen system and bulletproof glass.
- Karl Benz obviously gave his name to the company, but the Mercedes part of the name comes from the daughter of his customer and friend, Emil Jellinek. Her name was (obviously) Mercedes, and it's still surprising that her name remains so attached to the iconic car brand.
- Karl Benz founded the famous car company. He is not only credited as the maker of the world's first practical motorcar but also has the distinction of being the first person ever issued with a driving license (local citizens kept complaining about the noise and smell of his Motorwagen, and so he needed written permission to drive it).
- Mercedes are responsible for a lot of 'firsts' in their long history, including the world's first production of a diesel car. Very impressive, but it only had three wheels. Production stopped pretty quickly in the late 1950s.
