Cruise control @ really low speed...


I recently discovered that I'm able to use cruise control when going as slow as 26mph on my '03 E350. I'm wondering if this is normal and/or due to the vans commercial heritage. Does anybody elses van do this neat trick?

Yeah, I've used mine at ~26-30MPH, even though the book says like 30-35. I'm thinking the number in the book is the maximum speed you should have to reach before cruise will work, but in fact most will work a bit below that.

I had a chevy citation that would cruise at any speed. You could hit 'resume' from a dead stop and it would do it. I'm sure it wasn't supposed to do this. Before I got the car it had an engine fire and much of the wiring was replaced so I'm sure that had something to do with it. The problem was that this car had the big V-6 in it and it would do quite a burnout if you hit the resume button.
