Is there a way to allow 10 Km. safety margin above the speed limit to allow the alarming feature? Traffic is always moving a little faster than the limit.

When accessing a highway from a frontage road access should you begin accelerating as you approach the highway or wait until you are on the highway to incresse speed


Accelerate while on the "on ramp" until you reach the speed limit + posted on the highway... this way when you reach the highway you will be going the same speed(or close) as the other vehicles ..you can blend in easily.. and NOT cause an accident by going too slow!! On the way down the "on ramp".. start looking at the traffic coming on the highway to find an opening to ease into safely. Use your mirrors and BLINKER... (its easier to slow down a little than speed up)

Cruise control stop working light dont show on dash can a fuse be out if so where is it located


There are three fuse's in the smart junction box , do you know where it is ? It's under the dash panel left side ! The fuse's are F2.27- 10amp , F2.32 - 10amp , F2.17 - 15 amp . They power the speed control servo ! Maybe the control switch's on the steering wheel don't work.
A little back ground on the system ! Speed Control The vehicle speed control system consists of the following components:
  • Brake pedal position (BPP) switch
  • Speed control actuator cable
  • Speed control switches
  • Speed control deactivator switch
  • Speed control indicator
  • Speed control actuator
  • Smart junction box (SJB)
  • Principles of Operation
    The speed control system is designed to maintain vehicle a set speed above 48 km/h (30 mph). After the speed control ON switch is pressed, pressing the speed control switch SET/ACCEL will activate the speed control actuator. To increase a set speed, either press and hold for continuous acceleration, or momentarily tap the speed control switch SET/ACCEL for 1.6 km/h (1 mph) acceleration increments. To decrease a set speed, press and hold the speed control switch COAST until the target speed is reached, or momentarily tap the speed control switch COAST for 1.6 km/h (1 mph) deceleration increments. When the speed control system has been disabled by tapping the brake pedal, the speed control switch RESUME can be pressed and the vehicle will return to the original set speed if the vehicle is traveling over 48 km/h (30 mph) and the speed control switch OFF has not been pressed.
    NOTE: The deactivator switch is provided as an additional safety feature. Normally, when the brake pedal is pressed, an electrical signal from the brake lamp circuit to the speed control actuator will deactivate the system. Under increased brake pedal effort, the deactivator switch will open and remove power to the speed control actuator, releasing the throttle independently of the speed control actuator.
    NOTE: The clockspring provides the electrical interface between the steering column wiring and the speed control switches in the steering wheel.
    The inputs to the speed control actuator are:
    • Vehicle speed signal
    • Speed control switches
    • Brake pedal position (BPP) switch
    • Deactivator switch
    The outputs of the speed control actuator are:
    • Speed control indicator lamp
    • Speed control actuator cable controlling the throttle position
    • Inspection and Verification
      NOTE: If any concerns are noted with the speedometer, stoplamps, or horn, address those concerns by referring to the appropriate sections before continuing speed control diagnosis.
      1. Verify the customer concern by operating the speed control system.
      1. NOTE: Any aftermarket modifications, including but not limited to those listed below, may cause the speed control to not operate correctly:
        • Any wiring or lamp modifications affecting the brake lamp operation
        • LED brake lamps
        • Non-factory installed trailer wiring
        • Radios (speed sensitive, auto mute)
        • Remote starters and alarms
        • Lighting and electrical accessory modifications
        Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical or electrical damage:
        • Visually inspect the speed control actuator and accelerator controls.
        • Visually inspect the speed control cable without removing it and ensure smooth cable operation. Inspect the speed control cable connection to the throttle body.
        • Visually inspect the accelerator cable without removing it and ensure smooth cable operation. Inspect the accelerator cable connection to the throttle body. Also check for cable interference with the carpet, bulkhead grommet, insulation and instrument panel wiring.

        • Speed control actuator cable

          • 12 (60A)
        • Smart junction box (SJB) fuses:

most likely a vacuum leak - check the vacuum lines and the rubber ends on the lines. Start looking at the high pressure vacuum lines around the Map Sensor.

What is the o/d button on top of automatic gear stick for please


Over Drive..... Generally speaking, overdrive (OD) is the highest gear in the transmission. Overdrive allows the engine to operate at a lower rpm for a given road speed. This allows the vehicle to achieve better fuel efficiency, and often quieter operation on the highway. When it is switched on, an automatic transmission can shift into overdrive mode after a certain speed is reached (usually 70+ km/h [43+ mph] depending on the load). When it is off, the automatic transmission shifting is limited to the lower gears. For an automatic transmission, it is almost always best to select overdrive and allow the transmission to control engagement of the overdrive. (It may be necessary to switch it off if the vehicle is being operated in a mountainous area or when towing a trailer.) With a manual transmission, overdrive should usually be selected when the average speed is above 70 km/h (approx. 43 mph).

There is a button on the dashboard of my 1999 Rav 4 "EGT". What is it and how is this feature used?


The ECT button (which stands for "Electronically Controlled Transmission")
changes the shift points for the automatic transmission. When engaged,
the transmission shifts later, allowing the engine to get to a higher
power level and accelerate faster. Gas mileage is usually reduced in
this mode. Use it when you need to get up to speed faster; for example,
to merge into fast moving traffic. The normal position for this switch
is OFF.

I had a nuvi 205 for a while and it showed some of the speed limits. had a little sign that would pop up above the current speed. I "upgraded" to the 1300 and was surprised to see that feature missing. Actually, kinda mad, I really liked that function

Try a little light oil on the printer shaft. WD40 works well.
