Default Needs help

I just purchased a 2002 Saturn and I cannot figure out how the cruise control is supposed to work. My manual shows buttons for the cruise control. I have a stick type thing on the left side of the steering column. How is it supposed to work. There's a button on the end, one part of the divided handle says set, resume, etc. The other side of the handle says on/off. Please someone tell me how this is supposed to work! Thank you.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Welcome to SaturnFans! It would very useful to provide the model and engine of your vehicle. From what I can gather, you're describing a set up used on an S-Series vehicle.

I don't understand your difficulty. Do you not have an Owner's Handbook? It will be explained in detail there. Generally, here's how it should work:

1) turn on the cruise control switch, 2) press the other switch on the part where you see something like "set coast" at a speed of 40 mph or above, 3) if cruise control holds the speed that's been set then you may adjust it up or down by pressing the same switch on one half of it or the other. Let us know how things work out.

1999 SC1
Default Re: Needs help

2002 saturn? I just looked at the interiors for both the S and L series and found that the cruise control was on the steering wheel. What could the op be describing? Maybe something after market? But that wouldnt make too much sense since the car should be equipped with it.

Describe more about the lever. Whats it look like exactly? Where is it at? Are there any buttons on the steering wheel? Do you know what model saturn you own? If not, you can look inside the driver side door where the door latches and the sticker will tell you what you have.

...
1999 Saturn SL1-129k at purchase(may 2016)-139k when wrecked(September 2016)

1999 Saturn SC1(This car is cursed)-156K at purchase(october 2016)-170k currently (jun 2017)

Your description of cruise control switches doesn't seem to match Saturn factory cc where the controls are on the steering wheel.

I added cc to a stick sports car and the stalk fits your description. If correct, power is turned on (no led or light indicator) with the slide switch and above 25 mph, set cc by pressing the SET button when your selected speed is reached. To release cc, press or tap the brake pedal (press or tap the clutch pedal for manuals) and cc should release immediately. Or slide the power switch to OFF position. If cruising and cc is disengaged but power isn't turned off, re engaging cc would require sliding the switch to RESUME and the gas pedal should move away from your foot and accelerate up to the memorized set speed. To change cc speeds without disengaging cc, slide the switch to COAST until the new speed is seen on your speedometer then release the spring loaded slide switch to set a new cc speed.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
