Devin - I have a pre CVT 5 speed - my owner's manual doesn't cover that. Do you not have an owner's manual? I belive the S is sport mode - gives you a slightly faster takeoff. D is probably for normal driving. I'm sure one of the CVT owners will post here with more info - or, you can use the search button at the top of the page...Devin said:What does the little D and S on the steering wheel do/mean? Is that Cruise Control?
Having installed a Rostra cruise control myself, doing so does require a bit of mechanical ability and patience, so I can understand not wanting to tackle this installation yourself. However, those unfamiliar with the Insight hybrid system can cause the hybrid system to fail to work as designed after installing the cruise control (someone reported such a problem in this forum recently). So you need to be careful choosing an installer.I just got a 2005 Insight..not delivered yet and I'm so excited. Does anyone know how expensive it is to have cruise installed? I'll NOT be doing this myself.
Your prices may vary for the Rostra Cruise Control, but last year I ordered the Global Electronic Part #250-1223 @$180 [aprox]; Universal RF Switch Part #250-1483 @$80 and Throttle Adapter Part #250-4325 @$30 aprox from brandon distributors online. Plus freight to Canada and D-I-Y'd it myself; not easy but cheaper by far:I just got a 2005 Insight..not delivered yet and I'm so excited.
