We had an 04 Sienna with the laser cruise and if I remember correctly if you pull the stalk towards you for a few seconds(it says mode on the stalk) it alternate between normal and laser cruise. You can use either one, you don't have to use laser cruise.

hause7 - I tried that and it doesn't seem to work. Maybe I wasn't holding it long enough, so I'll try again.

Nope. I tried holding it down for up to 10 seconds and it didn't make any difference.

I finally figured it out. When I go to turn on the cruise control while I'm driving, it tries to communicate with the laser and throws the whole cruise control into lockdown. If I turn it on while I'm stopped, or even while I'm going really slowly, and then change it to normal mode like has been suggested, I can use it just fine. It's not a perfect solution, but not a bad one. It just means that half the time when I get on the freeway, I have to pull over and stop so that I can activate the cruise control before starting again.
Thanks for all of your help and suggestions!

Push in the buuton , push the stalk away from you until it switches from laser to normal cruise control. You will see go from yellow to green. You don't have to be stopped. It says it in the owners manual

Fast forward over a year and I finally got a court date. Went today and the officer showed up, but recommended my ticket be dismissed. I just had to stand and say "yes" when the judge asked if my plea was still "not guilty". After about 5 minutes they handed my paperwork to the officer, he signed something and then the judge said the officer's recommendation was for dismissal. I look at the officer to say "thank you" and he smiled, nodded and winked. Yea! I haven't had any problems with being pulled over since then, so I'm hoping that means there was a problem with his laser and not my laser cruise. Very happy that I still have a clean driving record!

Sweet justice. Good for you for challenging it in court.
