    Does the cruise control limit how fast you can go?

    If so I’d like to set mine to 30 or 40 mph because the maximum speed limit here on some roads is 40 mph and you wouldn’t upset anyone if you drove at 30 mph on those roads.

    My portable pressure washer is up to 25 bar much less than a jet wash which can be about 100 bar or more.

    I rinsed my car the other day with it and didn’t go up close on the rear parking sensors, so I think I’m ok.

    That quote was a blast from the past

    I don't jetwash the cars any more - poor results (possibly because it's generally months between).
    I have a long handled hose/brush things which is more effective and just as quick (or quicker if set-up/knock-down of the pressure washer is included).

    This was posted while I was locked out, so I've only now been reminded of it.
    I guess you've found out the answer by now

    It's probably in the manual ... but anyway:
    (BTW, The user interface is the worst for CC I've ever known - even my Jeep was better )
    There are 4 controls situated from 8 to 4 o'clock on the steering wheel.
    At 8 is the master switch - 3 positions: up=CC, mid=off, down=Limiter
    At 7 is the Cancel
    At 5 is the Resume
    At 4 is the Set and +/- switch - 3 positions but sprung to middle.

    Select on the 8 o'clock switch if you want CC (car maintains the set speed) or Limit (you use throttle normally but car limits speed)
    At the speed you desire (usually) press Set - up on the 4 o'clock switch. A small indication near the bottom left of the speedo will tell you what you have set.
    DONE.
    For CC the car will (more or less) maintain that speed unless you brake (disconnects) or press Cancel (disconnects - but doesn't actually cancel everything). For Limit braking doesn't disconnect, but Canc does. (Cancel is really 'Pause')
    To resume the previous operation press the ... yes, you guessed it, Resume button.
    To change the set speed use the 4 o'clock switch while in CC or Limit operation - doesn't work otherwise. Each click gives 1mph up or down; IIRC holding the switch will give a 'scroll' in 5mph increments (but don't quote me).
    To completely disable the system move the 8 o'clock switch to the middle. Turning off the ignition also kills it but doesn't move the switch.

    Why is it the worst? Because you are pootling along with hands at 10-2 or 9-3 and want to engage, change, pause or resume the CC/Limiter and you have to grovel around the bottom of the wheel trying to work out which frigging button to use, and which hand

    Also, in common with most limiters, when using the Limit function the accuracy of the system is slightly wider than the preset alarm limit for overspeed. It gets very annoying - you've given it one simple job to do and ...
    (I never use the Limiters on my cars now, just CC. Easier in my Hyundai as it's 'smart' too.)
