We retrofit the original Mercedes cruise control system. It works electronically to help regulate your car’s speed. It offers you more comfort on long journeys by keeping a constant speed. It is particularly effective when you have to stay within speed limits for a long way – when driving through miles of roadworks on the motorway, for example – and cuts the risk of your speed creeping up by accident. The system works by memorising and maintaining the speed you select. You can increase or reduce speed manually – to a defined value – and you have the option of returning to the speed most recently memorised. The cruise control system can be turned off by pressing a button, or by using the brake or clutch pedals.
Speed limiter can also be used to prevent the vehicle from exceeding a pre-determined speed. Once set the car will behave completely normally until the set speed is reached where it will hold constant. More throttle will simply have no effect unless ‘kickdown’ is activated which will over-ride the system.
For safety reasons, the cruise control system should not be used in heavy traffic or in difficult road conditions, such as heavy rain or ice.
The quoted price includes installation, all parts required and programming with Mercedes Star Diagnostics.
Installation can be completed at our workshop or at your home/place of work if local. We can travel further for installation, if required, for a reasonable cost.
