Indicator and warning lamps

Visual indicators informing the driver that a system is in operation (operation or deactivation indicator lamps) or of the occurrence of a fault (warning lamp).

When the ignition is switched on

Certain warning lamps come on for a few seconds when the vehicle's ignition is switched on.

When the engine is started, these same warning lamps should switch off.

If they remain on, before moving off, refer to the information on the warning lamp concerned.

Associated warnings

The switching on of certain warning lamps may be accompanied by an audible signal and a message on the multifunction screen.

Operation indicator lamps

If one of the following indicator lamps comes on, this confi rms that the corresponding system has come into operation.

The warning lamps may come on continuously (fixed) or flash.

Certain warning lamps may come on in two different modes. Only by relating the type of lighting to the operating status of the vehicle can it be ascertained whether the situation is normal or whether a fault has occurred.



Deactivation warning lamps

If one of the following warning lamps comes on, this confi rms that the corresponding system has been switched off intentionally.


Warning lamps

When the engine is running or the vehicle is being driven, the switching on of one of the following warning lamps indicates a fault which requires action on the part of the driver.

Any fault resulting in the switching on of a warning lamp must be investigated further by reading the associated message on the multifunction screen. If you encounter any problems, do not hesitate to contact a CITROËN dealer.





Service indicator

System which informs the driver when the next service is due, in accordance with the manufacturer's servicing schedule. The point at which the service is due is calculated from the last indicator zero reset.

It is determined by two parameters:

- the distance travelled, - the time elapsed since the last service.


More than 600 miles (1 000 km) remain before the next service is due

For 5 seconds after the ignition is switched on, the spanner symbolising the service operations comes on. The distance recorder display line indicates the distance remaining before the next service is due.

Example: 4 800 km remain before the next service is due.

For 5 seconds after the ignition is switched on, the display indicates:


5 seconds after the ignition is switched on, the spanner is switched off ; the distance recorder resumes its normal operation. The display then indicates the total and trip distances.
