The speed limiter function helps you stay within the driving speed limit that you choose, known as the limit speed.
1 Main “On/Off” switch.
2 Limit speed activation, storage and increase switch (+).
3 Decrease limit speed (-).
4 Speed limiter function standby (with limited speed memory) (O).
5 Activation and recall of stored limit speed (R).
Press the side switch 1 . The warning light 6 comes on, lit orange, and the message “Speed limiter” appears on the instrument panel, accompanied by dashes to indicate that the speed limiter function is activated and waiting to store a limit speed.
To store the current speed, press switch 2 (+): the limit speed replaces the dashes and the activation of the speed limiter is confirmed by the warning light Ð on an orange background.
The minimum stored speed is 20 mph (30 km/h).
When a limited speed has been stored and this speed is not 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”).
Varying the limit speed
The limit speed may be changed by repeatedly pressing:
- switch 2 (+) to increase speed;
- switch 3 (-) to reduce speed.
The speed limiter function is in no way linked to the braking system.
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).
If the speed is exceeded, the limited speed flashes on the instrument panel and a beep sounds.
Then, release the accelerator: the speed limiter function will return as soon as you reach a speed lower than the stored speed.
Limited speed cannot be maintained
If driving up or down a steep gradient, the system is unable to maintain the limit speed: the stored speed will flash on the instrument panel information display to inform you of this situation.
Putting the function on standby
The speed limiter function is suspended when you press switch 4 (O). In this case, the speed limit remains stored and the message “Memorised” accompanied by this speed appears on the instrument panel.
Standby is confirmed when the warning light Ð on the orange background goes out and the warning light comes on.
Recalling the limit speed
If a speed has been saved, it can be recalled by pressing switch 5 ((R)).
When the stored speed is recalled, activation of the speed limiter is confirmed by the illumination of the warning light Ð on an orange background.
When the speed limiter is put on standby, pressing switch 2 (+) 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.
Switching off the function
The speed limiter function is deactivated if you press switch 1: in this case a speed is no longer stored. The warning light ( or Ð) on the instrument panel going out confirms that the function is stopped.
