When the speed control is active, but you are no longer driving at the desired speed, then you can adjust the system easily. There are three ways to adjust the speed control: 1. Quickly press and release the Set + button to increase the speed by 1 MPH, or the Set – button to decrease the speed by 1 MPH. 2. Press and hold the Set + button to increase the speed; release the button when the desired speed has been set. Or, press and hold the Set – button to decrease the speed; release the button when the desired speed has been set. 3. Use the gas or brake pedal to achieve the desired speed, then press the Set button.
