How to enable Intelligent/Adaptive Cruise Control in the Infiniti Q50?

To enable adaptive cruise control in an Infiniti Q50 or any other vehicle equipped with this feature, you generally need to follow these steps:

  1. Start the Vehicle: Ensure that your Infiniti Q50 is turned on and running.
  2. Locate the Controls: The controls for adaptive cruise control are usually located on or around the steering wheel. Look for buttons or switches with icons resembling a vehicle and some distance markers.
  3. Turn On Adaptive Cruise Control: Press the button or toggle the switch that activates the adaptive cruise control system. This might be labeled as “ACC,” “Cruise Control,” or have an icon of a vehicle with radar waves.
  4. Set the Desired Speed: Once the adaptive cruise control system is activated, you can use the controls to set your desired cruising speed. This is often done by pressing the “Set” button or using the controls to adjust the speed.
  5. Set Following Distance: Most adaptive cruise control systems allow you to set the following distance between your vehicle and the one in front. This is usually done using buttons or controls on the steering wheel. You can adjust the distance to your preference, and the system will maintain that gap.
  6. Engage the Radar System: Adaptive cruise control uses radar or other sensors to detect vehicles in front of you. Ensure that the radar system is properly calibrated and functioning. Keep the front of your vehicle clean, as dirt and debris can affect the radar’s accuracy.
  7. Monitor and Override: While adaptive cruise control can control your vehicle’s speed and following distance, you should always be attentive and ready to take control if needed. Keep your hands on the steering wheel and be prepared to intervene if the system doesn’t respond appropriately to changing traffic conditions.

Remember that the specific steps and controls might vary slightly depending on the model year of your Infiniti Q50 and the available technology package. If you’re unsure about how to enable adaptive cruise control in your specific vehicle, I recommend referring to your vehicle’s owner’s manual or contacting your local Infiniti dealership for assistance.
