SPEED LIMITER

  • 1
  • 2
  • 3
  • 4
  • 5

The speed limiter function controls the engine and braking system to help you not to exceed a driving speed that you have chosen, known as the limit speed.

The speed limiter function can be activated from 0 to 93 mph (150 km/h) or, depending on the vehicle, to 100 mph (160 km/h).

Controls

1 Start/Stop speed limiter switch .

2 Cruise control On/Off switch .

3 Depending on the vehicle, road sign detection activation switch .

4 Activation switch:

- upwards: speed increased or reminder of stored limit speed (RES/+);

- downwards: limited speed decreased (SET/-).

5 Speed limiter function standby (with limited speed memory) (0).

Driving

When a limit speed has been set but not yet reached, driving is similar to driving a vehicle without the speed limiter function.

Once you have reached the stored speed, no effort on the accelerator pedal will allow you to exceed the programmed speed except in an emergency (refer to information on “Exceeding the limit speed”).

Depending on the vehicle, you can link the speed limiter function to the “Road sign detection” function DETECTION OF ROAD SIGNS by pressing switch 3.

Switching on

Press the switch 1. The 6 warning light appears in grey. The “Speed limiter OK SET to activate” message appears on the instrument panel accompanied by dashes to indicate that the speed limiter function is in operation, waiting to store a limit speed.

To store the current speed, press the 4 control upwards on (RES/+) or downwards on (SET/-): the limit speed replaces the dashes and, depending on the vehicle, the 6 warning light appears in white.

The minimum stored speed is 19 mph (30 km/h).

Varying the limit speed

You can vary the limit speed by pushing the 4 control:

- upwards on (RES/+) to increase the speed;

- downwards on (SET/-) to decrease the speed.

Exceeding the limit speed

It is possible to exceed the limit speed at any time. To do this: press the accelerator pedal firmly and fully (beyond the resistance point).

While the speed is being exceeded, the speed limiter flashes red on the instrument panel. Then, release the accelerator pedal: the speed limiter function will return as soon as you reach a speed lower than the memorised speed.

You must keep your feet near the pedals to be ready to react in an emergency.

If the speed limiter is not available (after several attempts to activate), contact an approved dealer.

Putting the function on standby

The speed limiter function is suspended when you press switch 5 (0). The limit speed is stored and displayed in grey on the instrument panel.

Recalling the limit speed

If a speed has been stored, it can be recalled by pushing the 4 switch upwards.

Switching off the function

The speed limiter function is interrupted:

- when you press the 1 switch. In this case, the speed is no longer stored;

- when you press the 2 switch. In this case the cruise control is selected and there is no stored speed.

The 6 warning light disappears to confirm that the function is deactivated.

When the speed limiter is set to standby, pressing the 4 control downwards reactivates the function without taking into account the stored speed: it is the speed at which the vehicle is moving that is taken into account.
