#16 of 17 Bypass Radar Cruise
May 14, 2011 (4:01 pm)
I have a 2 week old Sequoia whose radar cruise quit working last night with no warning. The service department today says it looks like a rock hit the radar sensor in the bumper and they are unable to align it. I swear I can see the tiniest spot but can't see how that could cause the system to fail. Anyway, is there any way to default to NORMAL when I activate the cruise control. I am only able to turn on the unit and switch to NORMAL just after starting the engine and still stopped. If I am driving at all, the unit automatically switches on to RADAR and gives the error light and CHECK CRUISE SYSTEM. Needless to say, I am frustrated. Since "it was caused by a rock", Toyota won't warranty it and they estimate a couple of grand to fix it. HELP!! If I could just ditch the radar crap I would be happy with normal cruise control.

No. No bypass is available. I think it is an excuse. The radar controlled cruise is glitchy and they are not admitting it. Under warranty so have them replace the unit. Had mine 3 months ago. Works fine now.
