Default "ACC/RES, CANCEL, COAST/SET" button in the middle of the steering wheel

What does the "ACC/RES, CANCEL, COAST/SET" button do? Its located in the middle of the steering wheel.

I turned my "cruise" button/switch that is NEAR THE RADIO to on which shows "ASC" (I think it says ASC) in green letters on the dashboard. I was on the highway and I pushed the "ACC/RES" switch up, and my RPMs went to 4000RPM real quick with my car in neutral. This was in a 100 degree day with my A/C On. I saw the word "CRUISE" light up for a second near my odometer and RPM gauge ( i think it said cruise). Then i noticed that I was going 60 MPH for a long time without pressing on the gas with my car in neutral.

So I did the exact same thing, but this time I pushed the "COAST/SET" button down and the word "CRUISE" flashed on for a second and my RPMS went to 4000 real quick and i experienced the same results as I just wrote above this paragraph.

HERES ONE PROBLEM, Tonight I was on the highway with my A/C on and it was a little cooler outside. My "cruise" button/switch was already on, and then I pushed the "COAST/SET" button up and my CAR REDLINED to 7000RPM real quick in netrual like you would start out in a drag race. I quickly pushed down the "COAST/SET" button to "CANCEL" and it stopped. No im scared to touch that button anymore.

I always thought that the cruise control button was the button near the radio that says "ON" "CRUISE" "OFF". Every time i push it to on the words "ASC" ( or something close" come on in green letters.

(94 base 3000gt rebuilt engine,tranny,etc.)

So your trying to set your cruise with the car in neutral? When you push the button/switch near the radio your turning the cruise or assisted speed control(may not be the right words but it works) system on, then the steering controls "set", "resume", "accel." "coast" and "cancel" control the cruise system, if your messing with it in neutral I wouldn't think it would try to work but then again, I've never tried to make mine do it. I was just happy after three trips of 600 miles without it I finally fixed it

Yeah just turn on the button by the radio (should get the asc light) and only mess with the switch when under power. I only really use "set" and "cancel". Just don't mess with it while in neutral

Do the words "CRUISE" come on and stay on untill you press "CANCEL"

Im guessing but does the "ACC/RES" switch stand for Automatic Cruise Control and Reset"

So whats the difference between "ACC/RES" and "COAST/SET"

Coast/Set turns on your cruise control and sets it at a specific MPH.

ACC/RES stands for accelerate/resume. Once you have set the crusie, and then turned it off for some reason(stop light, etc) you can hit resume and the car will cruise at the specified MPH. Holding ACC/RES while having the cruise engaged will cause the car to accelerate...

I put my car in neutral because I think Im saving gas, but I heard controversy that it doesnt save gas and that it is bad for your tranny. I also put my car in neutral when Im going down a hill to save gas.

Heres an example of how I drive sometimes. My car was in 4th gear and went to 75-80 MPH, then I put it in neutral and just ride along untill I am going 55 MPH and then I put it in 3rd gear and then 4th gear to 75-80 MPH and repeat the cycle.

Is that bad for your tranny and does it save a little bit of gas even though the engine still uses gas when idling?

You're wasting more gas than you would think. It's easy to maintain 55-60mph @ 2k rpms than it is to do pulls all over the place.

When you press the cruise button on the center console it activates the system, hence the "ASC" lights on the dash. You obviously have to be in drive, in gear, for cruise to work. Once you "set" the mph you want to achieve via the steering wheel buttons, the cruise computer will attempt to keep you at that specific mph.

I have all needed cruise parts for sale as well, if you find any of yours to be defect.
