Nissan Maxima Owners Manual: Cruise control operations

The cruise control allows driving at a speed between 25 - 89 mph (40 - 144 km/h) without keeping your foot on the accelerator pedal.

To turn on the cruise control, push the switch on. The CRUISE indicator light in the instrument panel will illuminate.

To set cruising speed, accelerate the vehicle to the desired speed, push the SET switch and release it. Take your foot off the accelerator pedal.

Your vehicle maintains the set speed.

  • To pass another vehicle, depress the accelerator pedal. When you release the pedal, the vehicle returns to the previously set speed.
  • The vehicle may not maintain the set speed when going up or down steep hills. If this happens, drive without the cruise control.

To cancel the preset speed, use one of the following three methods.

  • Push the CANCEL switch.
  • Tap the brake pedal.
  • Push the  switch off. The CRUISE indicator light in the instrument panel goes out.

The cruise control is automatically canceled if:

  • you depress the brake pedal while pushing the RES or SET switch. The preset speed is deleted from memory.
  • the vehicle slows down more than 8 mph (13 km/h) below the set speed.
