If the vehicle is equipped, the emergency call system enables the emergency services to be called (without charge) automatically or manually in the event of an accident or illness, in order to reduce the time they take to arrive on the scene.
If you use the emergency call function to report an accident which you have witnessed, this implies stopping where traffic conditions allow in order for the emergency services to locate your vehicle and therefore the location of the reported accident.
In all cases, comply with local legislation.
Use the emergency call only in the event of an emergency you are involved in, if you witness an accident or if you feel ill.
In the event of an accident, if the location and traffic conditions permit, stay close to the vehicle in order to be able answer the call centre quickly if necessary.
1 System operation warning light:
- green: operational
- off: non-operational
- red: operating

A call is always made as follows:
- the call is set up with the emergency services;
- send data related to the incident (vehicle identification plate, local time of the call, last positions, direction of the vehicle);
- voice communication with the emergency services;
- if necessary, emergency assistance is called.
Emergency call has two modes:
- automatic mode;
- Manual mode.
If the automatic mode 2 warning light appears in green this confirms that the automatic system is activated.
The emergency call starts automatically in the event of an accident having required the activation of the protective equipment (seat belt pretensioners, airbag, etc.).
