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 Controls for:
a speed limiter activation, memory and increase(+);
b decreasing the speed limiter(-).
3 Activation and recall of memorised limited speed (R).
4 Speed limiter function standby (with limited speed memory) (O).
Press switch 1 on side . Depending on the vehicle, the warning light or is 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 memorise a limit speed.
To store the current speed, press switch 2 on side a (+): the limited speed will replace the dashes.
The minimum stored speed is 20 mph (30 km/h).
If you wish, you can associate the speed limiter and the “Overspeed alert” function (please refer to the information on the “Overspeed alert” in Section 2).
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 speed limiter can be changed by repeatedly pressing switch 2 :
- side a (+) to increase the speed;
- side b (-) to reduce 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 programmed speed displayed on the instrument panel flashes.
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
When driving down a steep gradient, the system is unable to maintain the limit speed: the memorised speed will flash on the instrument panel and an audible signal sounds at regular intervals to inform you of this situation.
The speed limiter function is in no way linked to the braking system.
Putting the function on standby
The speed limiter function is suspended when you press switch 4 (O). In this case, the limit speed remains stored and the message "Memorised” accompanied by this speed appears on the instrument panel.
Recalling the limit speed
If a speed has been stored, it can be recalled by pressing switch 3 (R).
When the speed limiter is put on standby, pressing side a (+) on 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 switching off, depending on the vehicle, of the orange warning light or on the instrument panel confirms that the function is off.
