What does the Speed Control light mean on the dash?

A: The Speed Control light should be on in you...

The Speed Control light should be on in your dash, but the color of the light will change depending on whether the system is on or off. The light looks like a tiny version of your speedometer.

If the light is on and it is amber colored, it means that Speed Control is turned off. If the light is on and is green colored, it means that the Speed Control system is active. It will turn off when the system is turned off.
