Not sure where else to post this question. First, I did read and search through the manual. More than once!


What is ;purpose of the "wheel" symbol to the left of the cruise control buttons on the steering wheel?

:confused:

Thanks!

If you are talking about the steering wheel symbol that has an X through it, it turns the power completely off from the cruise control. If you don't manually turn off the cruise control power, then every time you start your car up, the cruise control has power. I never use that button. My cruise control remains powered up each time I start the car. Again, I hope I'm talking about the item you question.

Not sure what "wheel" you mean. Check page 19 for cruise control info. I think you are asking about the "disengage button".

If this is not what you are looking for, post a picture showing the item in question.

As I was driving today I pressed the button several times, thinking that was it (shutting off cruise control). But I didn't see anything happening. I'll try again tomorrow, paying attention to the cruise control symbol on the dash (the illuminated white symbol) while doing so.


For the record, I leave my cruise control "on" all the time. It's great that it doesn't shut off every time you shut down the Bolt.


Edit: OK, found it in the manual. This is one way to end cruise control, but without shutting the command completely off. Which was why, when I was hitting the little button, the white lit cruise control symbol didn't go out!!

OK, now figure out what the one in the middle does. The one that shows a car about to rear end another. :)

The button you are talking about is the CANCEL button for the CC.
I won't turn the systems power off, but it will deactivate the engagement of it.

Cruise Control in GM vehicles isn't as "new" as many may think. I saw some old Buicks with the system, which was more complex, as it used mechanical links to the carburetor to hold the accelerator at a fixed position. My 1995 Buick Regal had one of the modern types using electronic controls mounted on the signal stalk and was confusing to use.

Having cruise controls on the steering wheel appeared later. My 2009 Chevy Equinox has the controls on the steering wheel.
