Mazda CX-9 Owners Manual: Cruise Control

Cruise Control

With cruise control, you can set and automatically maintain any speed of more than about 25 km/h (16 mph).

WARNING

Do not use the cruise control under the following conditions: Using the cruise control under the following conditions is dangerous and could result in loss of vehicle control.

  • Hilly terrain
  • Steep inclines
  • Heavy or unsteady traffic
  • Slippery or winding roads
  • Similar restrictions that require inconsistent speed

Cruise Control Switch

Cruise Control

NOTE If your Mazda has the following steering switch, your Mazda is equipped with the Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go function (MRCC with Stop & Go function) system.

Cruise Control

Cruise Main Indication (White)/ Cruise Set Indication (Green)

Cruise Control

The indication has 2 colors.

Cruise Main Indication (White)

The indication turns on (white) when the cruise control system is activated.

Cruise Set Indication (Green)

The indication turns on (green) when a cruising speed has been set.

Activation/Deactivation

To activate the system, press the ON switch. The cruise main indication (white) is displayed.

To deactivate the system, press the OFF/CAN switch.

The cruise main indication (white) turns off.

WARNING

Always turn off the cruise control system when it is not in use: Leaving the cruise control system in an activation-ready state while the cruise control is not in use is dangerous as the cruise control could unexpectedly activate if the activation button is accidentally pressed, and result in loss of vehicle control and an accident.

NOTE When the ignition is switched OFF, the system status before it was turned off is maintained. For example, if the ignition is switched OFF with the cruise control system operable, the system will be operable when the ignition is switched ON the next time.

To Set Speed

1. Activate the cruise control system by pressing the ON switch. The cruise main indication (white) is displayed.

2. Accelerate to the desired speed, which must be more than 25 km/h (16 mph).

3. Set the cruise control by pressing the SET/- switch at the desired speed. The cruise control is set at the moment the SET/- switch is pressed. Release the accelerator pedal simultaneously. The cruise set indication (green) is displayed.

NOTE

  • The cruise control speed setting cannot be performed under the following conditions:
    • The selector lever is in the P or N position.
    • The parking brake is applied.
  • Release the SET/- or RES/+ switch at the desired speed, otherwise the speed will continue increasing while the RES/+ switch is pressed and held, and continue decreasing while the SET/- switch is pressed and held (except when the accelerator pedal is depressed).
  • On a steep grade, the vehicle may momentarily slow down while ascending, or speed up while descending.
  • The cruise control will cancel if the vehicle speed decreases below 21 km/h (13 mph) when climbing a steep grade.
  • The cruise control may cancel at about 15 km/h (9 mph) below the preset speed such as when climbing a long, steep grade.

The vehicle speed preset using the cruise control is displayed in the instrument cluster.

To Increase Cruising Speed

Follow either of these procedures.

To increase speed using cruise control switch

Press the RES/+ switch and hold it. Your vehicle will accelerate. Release the switch at the desired speed.

Press the RES/+ switch and release it immediately to adjust the preset speed.

Multiple operations will increase the preset speed according to the number of times it is operated.

Increasing speed with a single RES/+ switch operation

Instrument cluster display for vehicle speed indicated in km/h: 1 km/h (0.6 mph) Instrument cluster display for vehicle speed indicated in mph: 1 mph (1.6 km/h)

To increase speed using accelerator pedal

Depress the accelerator pedal to accelerate to the desired speed. Press the SET/- switch and release it immediately.

NOTE Accelerate if you want to speed up temporarily when the cruise control is on.

Greater speed will not interfere with or change the set speed. Take your foot off the accelerator to return to the set speed.

To Decrease Cruising Speed

Press the SET/- switch and hold it. The vehicle will gradually slow.

Release the switch at the desired speed.

Press the SET/- switch and release it immediately to adjust the preset speed.

Multiple operations will decrease the preset speed according to the number of times it is operated.

Decreasing speed with a single SET/- switch operation

Instrument cluster display for vehicle speed indicated in km/h: 1 km/h (0.6 mph) Instrument cluster display for vehicle speed indicated in mph: 1 mph (1.6 km/h)

To Resume Cruising Speed at More Than 25 km/h (16 mph)

If the cruise control system temporarily canceled (such as applying the brake pedal) and the system is still activated, the most recent set speed will automatically resume when the RES/+ switch is pressed.

If vehicle speed is below 25 km/h (16 mph), increase the vehicle speed up to 25 km/h (16 mph) or more and press the RES/+ switch.

To Temporarily Cancel

To temporarily cancel the system, use one of these methods:

  • Slightly depress the brake pedal.
  • Press the OFF/CAN switch.

If the RES/+ switch is pressed when the vehicle speed is 25 km/h (16 mph) or higher, the system reverts to the previously set speed.

NOTE

  • If any of the following conditions occur, the cruise control system is temporarily canceled.
    • The parking brake is applied.
    • The selector lever is in the P or N position.
  • When the cruise control system is temporarily canceled by even one of the applicable cancel conditions, the speed cannot be re-set.
  • The cruise control cannot be cancelled while driving in manual mode (selector lever shifted from D to M position).

    Therefore, engine braking will not be applied even if the transaxle is shifted down to a lower gear. If deceleration is required, lower the set speed or depress the brake pedal.

To Deactivate

When a cruising speed has been set (cruise set indication (green) turns on)

Long-press the OFF/CAN switch or press the OFF/CAN switch 2 times.

When a cruising speed has not been set (cruise main indication (white) turns on)

Press the OFF/CAN switch.
