2013 Lexus GS 350: Cruise Options

October 9, 2012

2013 Lexus GS 350

I was looking for a menu or a button or switch or something to switch our longterm 2013 Lexus GS 350's active cruise to normal, "dumb" cruise -- sometimes, you just want to be in control -- but couldn't find it while driving. 

Once I R'd TFM, I discovered how to do it.

To switch modes, you push forward on the cruise control stalk (that is, the 'cancel' action) and hold it there for about three seconds. The system will then deactivate active cruise, leaving you with conventional, er, inactive cruise.

One caveat, it won't retain that state -- the system defaults back to active cruise once you cycle the ignition. 

The more you know.
