How to set cruise control on 2000 Sonata?

Discussion in 'Hyundai Sonata' started by Jeremy & Kandie Michea, Feb 7, 2005.

  1. Hi. I just bought a used 2000 Sonata. Nice car. I'm planning on a weekend
    trip and was trying to figure out how to use the cruise control. I don't
    have a car manual and can't find the info the net so either I'm not doing
    something right or the cruise control doesn't work.

    So, can anyone please tell me how to activate the cruise control on a 2000


    Also, while I'm here I'm just curious, what should the RPM's be when the
    automatic transmission (4 cylinder) switches gears, say 2nd to 3rd?

    1. Press the cruise control on/off button on the lower left-hand part
    of the dashboard. (Kind of awkward to reach.) The button light will
    turn on, letting you know the system is armed.

    2. When you reach the desired speed, press the "Set" button on the
    steering wheel. (There will be 2 buttons on the right side of the
    steering wheel, "Set" is the lower button as I recall.) If all is
    working OK the "Cruise" light in the dash will light up and the cruise
    control will engage.

    To disengage, tap the brake pedal or hit the dashboard on/off button.
    It will vary depending on load and acceleration. On average, maybe
    somewhere between 3,000 and 4,000 RPM? (We have a 2000 Sonata GLS, but
    the wife mostly drives it and I don't really recall.)
