What does vlt stop

ACC / speed limiter

Good Morning:-)

I have a quick question about my T-ROC. This morning I got the message "ACC deactivated. Press main switch". Can someone tell me what that means and which main switch is meant exactly?

Thank you and have a nice rest of the week

Best answer on the topic

I would set the ACC to ECO and the 2nd smallest distance. In my opinion, this is the most harmonious way of driving. But it's best to try the different options for a few days at a time. The behavior can thus be clearly influenced. So don't throw the shotgun in the grain straight away. And in a motorway construction site or a 30 km / h zone, I don't need dynamic acceleration or whatever. ACC takes some of the nerve factor out of it.

Hello,

this has happened to me several times.

Take a look at the attached picture, it should be the one marked in yellow!

Greetings Rainer :)

Hello everybody,

When I bought my Golf, I chose the ACC Assistant, among other things, because I think it makes sense and I attach particular importance to cruise control. Unfortunately, I had to find out that the cruise control does not work without ACC. However, I also need this on routes on which switching on the ACC does not make any sense. The owner's manual says I can turn off the ACC and turn on the speed limiter. Would also be a good solution, but it doesn't work. I do it exactly as described in the instructions (photo). Up to the point: Select the speed limiter in the display of the instrument cluster. When I do that, the display tells me: Press the main switch. Well, what and where in the world is that main switch? The instructions do not provide that. Does anyone have the problem too? Or does anyone know a solution?

Thank you in advance for answers.

From the driver's point of view, it doesn't matter at all whether ACC makes sense on a certain route or not. It's just there without you noticing, so it's not as annoying as LaneAssist, for example, sometimes. In addition, it has no influence on fuel consumption, does not wear and has no other effects, just like ESP and ASR, but always present and - in an emergency - useful. Trust the cruise control even with ACC, then you don't need the speed limiter either. In my opinion, it only makes sense in a Tempo 30 zone or the like.

Well, I had the problem of sudden braking on a motorway construction site because of a crooked beacon. And for things like that I need cruise control so that I can really drive 80 and not get the red flash again. Yesterday there was sudden braking because of cyclists on the bike path. That's why I would like to be able to switch off the ACC without having to forego the advantages of a speed limiter.

ACC should not brake because of a beacon, ACC should normally not react to stationary objects. Wasn't that more like Front Assist? Did you get a warning during the braking process? If so, it was Front Assist. But that is always active.

As far as I know:

The ACC includes the cruise control, but there is no cruise control alone (without the ACC functions).

But you can switch to the speed limiter when ACC is switched on.

But this is not a cruise control, it just limits the speed.

That means you have to accelerate and brake yourself, but you cannot exceed the set speed (he just doesn't take any more gas)

To switch on ACC: Press the Acc button (via CNL on the left on the steering wheel) and then press SET (bottom left).

Then set the desired speed using the appropriate button

To then switch to the speed limiter: Press the MODE button (under CNL).

This switches off ACC and only the limiter works.

As I said, you then have to accelerate and brake yourself.

To switch ACC back on: Press the MODE button again.

(Everything is on page 161 in my Golf7 Fl book)

Personally, I mostly only use the ACC for longer motorway journeys.

ACC also works very well on country roads or in the city because it automatically adapts the speed to that of the person in front.

I've tried the mountain bike a couple of times, it works. But it seems useless to me.

I also think it's a shame that acc cannot be switched off in order to have a normal cruise control. ACC mostly annoys me because there are constant braking maneuvers that I would not do myself. It is also annoying that it partly copies the "stupid" driving behavior of others. I think it should have a bit more buffer. Everything should be gentler. You can clearly see the load changes. It's not harmonious. Tested in the GTD from 2016 and my 1.4 TSI from 2018 with the latest ACC. If the ACC could be deactivated, I would do it immediately, so switch to normal cruise control. But it doesn't work or maybe it does ???

Hello,

try the following time please test. Set the distance to the lowest setting, ACC control range to sport and the front assist reaction to "very late" (the exact term has just been omitted)

then it behaves similarly to a "stupid" cruise control with the security that it will throw the anchor in an emergency.

The ACC requires a certain rethinking, since I have had the Golf with DSG, I drive the part like every other route and if someone in front of me is unable to drive my foot remains slightly on the gas. With the vFL with hand switch, I have to admit I only used the part on the main road or motorway.

Give this thing a chance, I don't want a car without this range of functions: D

This can - if the BA is known - change / adapt via setup as just described by @Kracksn. I drive a lot with ACC - also on construction sites and in the city. Orientation towards the vehicle in front is quite relaxed, and if it is a little slower than I would like, I might not be able to overtake without ACC because of oncoming traffic. If so, simply override the ACC cruise control with the accelerator.

Exactly, always keep your foot over the accelerator pedal, then in an emergency you can press down and override the braking process.

I almost always use cruise control, even in zones 30. There is no more relaxed cruising around.

I did. Nothing happens. No reaction. : - ((
