This car may be very Used and you may be able to get lessons from the your seller. Give them $5 for their time and advice as a tip. Good Luck. My 2019 base unit does have a factory cruise control.I have a 2016 Soul, Base Model, M/T 1.6L. It has a cruise control lever, nothing of the sort that the manual shows for the steering wheel mounted switch panel. I have attached pictures to show the lever on the left side of the column. Bought this car used last summer.
To operate the cruise:
1. Push and hold the lever forward. A faint beep-beep will be heard so long as there is not much ambient noise like the radio playing.
2. Push up or down to set the speed.
3. Pull backward to cancel set speed.
There is no indication on the instrumentation cluster that the cruise has been set, like a little green light.
The lever has the markings "+" and "-" symbols for like increasing/decreasing set speed. They work, but not very gracefully. Like all other cars, press + or - to increase/decrease speed in 1 mph increments. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to what it wants to do. Sometimes it will in minute increments, other times it may be 5 mph.
I want to purchase the factory harness and steering wheel switch assembly as mentioned in a previous thread. Before I do that, I'd like to know if anyone can identify what brand and/or how this cruise is installed. I want to know more before I rip it out and thus create issues. I have seen that Rostra makes a lever type cruise control, but I have not been able to find they made a lever such as what I have in my car. One pic shows a number, I looked it up but there are no results that can identify what it is.
Any help or advice before I tear into it?
