It doesn't auto-enable. Button on steering wheel controls this and the distance setting. It doesn't reset.

You know the car came with a complete and thorough manual, right? ;)

Hi

Mine does and if I switch it off on the next ignition cycle it defaults back to the two bars. If I don't switch it off it stays on the same setting I chose.
