Citroen C3 / Citroen C3 Owners Manual / Child safety / Braking assistance systems

Group of supplementary systems which help you to obtain optimum braking in complete safety in emergency situations:

- anti-lock braking system (ABS), - electronic brake force distribution (EBFD),
- emergency braking assistance (EBA).

Anti-lock braking system and electronic brake force distribution

Linked systems which improve the stability and manoeuvrability of your vehicle when braking, in particular on poor or slippery surfaces.

Activation

The anti-lock braking system comes into operation automatically when there is a risk of wheel lock.

Normal operation of the ABS may make itself felt by slight vibration of the brake pedal.

When braking in an emergency, press very fi rmly without releasing the pressure.

Operating fault


If this warning lamp comes on, accompanied by an audible signal and a message on the multifunction screen, it indicates a malfunction of the anti-lock braking system which could result in loss of control of the vehicle when braking.


If this warning lamp comes on, together with the STOP and ABS warning lamps, accompanied by an audible signal and a message on the multifunction screen, it indicates a malfunction of the electronic brake force distribution which could result in loss of control of the vehicle when braking.

You MUST stop as soon as it is safe to do so.

In either case, contact a CITROËN dealer.

When replacing wheels (tyres and rims), ensure that they conform to the manufacturer's recommendations.

Emergency braking assistance

System which, in an emergency, enables you to obtain the optimum braking pressure more quickly, thus reducing the stopping distance.

Activation

It is triggered by the speed at which the brake pedal is pressed. The effect of this is a reduction in the resistance of the pedal and an increase in braking effi ciency.

When braking in an emergency, press fi rmly without releasing the pressure.
