- Santa Fe Sport
2017 Santa fe sport 2.4L , with the cruise on and going down a hill the engine races , rpm's increase. ? is there a way to turn that off and just coast or is that a fixed feature ?
Manual or auto trans? Does the vehicle speed go up in proportion to the rpm rise, or is it only the rpm going up? Use live-data to see what the TPS (and turbine slip, if auto) is reporting. If the throttle is going closed, that's the best the CC can do. I gotta ask... how steep are these hills?
Yep , been doing that . . . . but cruise in our other vehicle doesn't do that .. it just coasts.... thanksAssuming the auto transmission is going from 6th to 5th gear. At speed this causes the RPMs to increase, creating engine braking. The system is designed to do this. The idea of cruise control is to keep the car at a specific MPH even if you are going downhill. If you don't want that to happen, hit cancel and then engage the cruise control when you want, however you will build up speed while coasting downhill.
Your mistake is thinking all vehicles are created equal. Coast may be normal for the one and engine braking for the SF. It's doing exactly what it's made to do.So .... you've driven one of these ...? ? ? with the cruise on , and your telling me that the rpm's don't increase on a down hill grade ? your sadly mistaken !
