Toyota Highlander Owners Manual: Selecting conventional constant speed control mode
Constant speed control mode differs from vehicle-to-vehicle distance control mode. When constant speed control mode is selected, your vehicle will maintain a set speed regardless of whether or not there are other vehicles in the lane ahead.
- Press the �on-off� button to activate the cruise control.
Press the button again to deactivate the cruise control.
- Switch to constant speed control mode.
(Push the lever forward and hold for approximately one second.)
Constant speed control mode indicator will be displayed.
When in constant speed control mode, to return to vehicle-to-vehicle distance control mode, push the lever forward again and hold for approximately 1 second.
After the desired speed has been set, it is not possible to return to vehicleto- vehicle distance control mode.
If the engine switch is turned off and then turned to ignition on mode again, the vehicle will automatically return to vehicle-to-vehicle distance control mode.
Adjusting the speed setting: Canceling and resuming the speed setting:
Dynamic radar cruise control can be set when
- The shift lever is in the d or range 4 or higher of s has been selected.
- Vehicle speed is above approximately 30 mph (50 km/h).
Accelerating after setting the vehicle speed
The vehicle can accelerate normally. After acceleration, the set speed resumes. However, during vehicle-to-vehicle distance control mode, the vehicle speed may decrease below the set speed in order to maintain the distance to the vehicle ahead.
Automatic cancelation of vehicle-to-vehicle distance control
Vehicle-to-vehicle distance control driving is automatically canceled in the following situations:
- actual vehicle speed falls below approximately 25 mph (40 km/h).
- Enhanced vsc is activated.
- Vsc is activated.
- The sensor cannot operate correctly because it is covered in some way.
- The windshield wipers are operating at high speed (when the wiper switch is set to the high speed wiper operation position).
If vehicle-to-vehicle distance control driving is automatically canceled for any other reason, there may be a malfunction in the system. Contact your toyota dealer.
Automatic cancelation of constant speed control
The cruise control will stop maintaining the vehicle speed in the following situations:
- actual vehicle speed is more than approximately 10 mph (16 km/h) below the set vehicle speed.
At this time, the memorized set speed is not retained.
- Vehicle speed falls below approximately 25 mph (40 km/h).
- Enhanced vsc is activated.
- Vsc is activated.
Radar sensor and grille cover
Always keep the sensor and grille cover clean to ensure that the vehicle-tovehicle distance control operates properly. (Some obstructions, such as snow, ice and plastic objects, cannot be detected by the obstruction sensor.) Dynamic radar cruise control is canceled if an obstruction is detected.
- Grille cover
- Radar sensor
Operation guide display
When the dynamic radar cruise control switch is operated, a guidance display is shown on the multi-information display for a few seconds as to how to operate the dynamic radar cruise control switch or distance switch.
Warning messages and buzzers for dynamic radar cruise control
Warning messages and buzzers are used to indicate a system malfunction or to inform the driver of the need for caution while driving.

Do not overly rely on vehicle-to-vehicle distance control.
Be aware of the set speed. If automatic deceleration/acceleration is not appropriate, adjust the vehicle speed, as well as the distance between your vehicle and vehicles ahead by applying the brakes etc.
Cautions regarding the driving assist systems
Observe the following precautions.
Failure to do so may cause an accident resulting in death or serious injury.
To avoid inadvertent cruise control activation
Switch the cruise control off using the �on-off� button when not in use.
Situations unsuitable for dynamic radar cruise control
Do not use dynamic radar cruise control in any of the following situations.
Doing so may result in inappropriate speed control and could cause an accident resulting in death or serious injury.
When the sensor may not be correctly detecting the vehicle ahead
Apply the brakes as necessary when any of the following types of vehicles are in front of you.
As the sensor may not be able to correctly detect these types of vehicles, the approach warning Will not be activated, and a fatal or serious accident may result.
Conditions under which the vehicle-to-vehicle distance control may not function correctly
Apply the brakes as necessary in the following conditions as the radar sensor may not be able to correctly detect vehicles ahead, and a fatal or serious accident may result:
andling the radar sensor
Observe the following to ensure the cruise control system can function effectively.
Otherwise, the system may not function correctly and could result in an accident.
Approach warningWhen your vehicle is too close to a vehicle ahead, and sufficient automatic deceleration via the cruise control is not possible, the display will flash and the buzzer will sound to alert the driver. ...
