The speed limiter function helps you stay within the driving speed limit that you choose, known as the limit speed.
1 Limit speed activation, memorisation and increase switch (+).
2 Decrease limit speed ( -).
3 Switch the function to standby (with limit speed memorisation (O)).
4 Activation and recall of memorised limit speed (R).
5 Main “On/Off” switch.
Press the side switch 5 . 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 is activated and waiting to store a speed limit.
To memorise the current speed, press switch 1 (+): the minimum speed which can be memorised 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 1 ( +) to increase speed;
- switch 2 ( -) 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 moment. To do this: press the accelerator pedal firmly and fully (beyond the kickdown point).
Whilst the speed is being exceeded, the limit speed displayed on the instrument panel flashes.
Then, as far as is possible, release the accelerator pedal: the speed limiter function will return as soon as you reach a speed lower than the memorised speed.
Limited speed cannot be maintained
When driving down a steep gradient, the system is unable to maintain the limit speed: the memorised 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 the 3 switch (O). In this case, the speed limit remains stored and the message “Memorised”, accompanied by this speed, appears on the instrument panel.
Recalling the limit speed
If a speed has been memorised, it can be recalled by pressing switch 4 ( R).
Switching off the function
The speed limiter function is deactivated when you press switch 5. In this case, the speed is no longer memorised. The instrument panel orange indicator light goes out, confirming that the function is deactivated.
When the speed limiter is set to standby, pressing switch 1 (+) reactivates the function without taking into account the memorised speed: it is the speed at which the vehicle is moving that is taken into account.
