Citroen C3: Speed limiter

Citroen C3 Owners Manual

System which prevents the vehicle from exceeding the speed programmed by the driver.

When the programmed speed limit is reached, pressing the accelerator pedal in the normal manner no longer has any effect.

The speed limiter is switched on manually: it requires a programmed speed of at least 20 mph (30 km/h).

The speed limiter is switched off by manual operation of the control.

The programmed speed can be exceeded temporarily by pressing the accelerator fi rmly.

To return to the programmed speed, simply slow down to a speed below the programmed speed.

The programmed speed remains in the memory when the ignition is switched off.

The speed limiter cannot, in any circumstances, replace the need to respect speed limits, nor can it replace the need for vigilance and responsibility on the part of the driver.

The controls of this system are grouped together on stalk A .

1. Speed limiter mode selection thumb wheel
2. Value decrease button 3. Value increase button 4. Speed limiter on/off button

Displays on the instrument panel


The programmed information is grouped together on the instrument panel display.

5. Speed limiter on/off indication 6. Speed limiter mode selection indication 7. Programmed speed value

Programming


Turn thumb wheel 1 to the "LIMIT" position: the speed limiter mode is selected but is not switched on (PAUSE).

You do not have to switch the speed limiter on in order to set the speed.

Set the speed value by pressing button 2 or 3 (e.g.: 55 mph (90 km/h)).

You can then change the programmed speed using buttons 2 and 3 :

- by + or - 1 mph (km/h) = short press, - by + or - 5 mph (km/h) = long press, - in steps of + or - 5 mph (km/h) = maintained press.

Switch the speed limiter on by pressing button 4 .

Switch the speed limiter off by pressing button 4 : the display confi rms that it has been switched off (PAUSE).

Switch the speed limiter back on by pressing button 4 again.

Exceeding the programmed speed

Pressing the accelerator pedal to exceed the programmed speed will not have any effect unless you press the pedal fi rmly past the point of resistance .

The speed limiter is deactivated temporarily and the programmed speed, which is still displayed, fl ashes.

Returning to the programmed speed, by means of intentional or unintentional deceleration of the vehicle, automatically cancels the fl ashing of the programmed speed.

Leaving limiter mode

Turn thumb wheel 1 to the "0" position: the speed limiter mode is deselected. The display returns to the distance recorder.






Operating fault

In the event of a speed limiter malfunction, the speed is cleared resulting in fl ashing of the dashes.

Have the system checked by a CITROËN dealer.


On a steep descent or in the event of sharp acceleration, the speed limiter will not be able to prevent the vehicle from exceeding the programmed speed.

To avoid any risk of jamming of the pedals:

- ensure that the mat is positioned correctly,
- do not fi t one mat on top of another.

Cruise control

System which automatically maintains the speed of the vehicle at the value programmed by the driver, without any action on the accelerator pedal.

The cruise control is switched on manually: it requires a minimum vehicle speed of 25 mph (40 km/h), as well as the engagement of:

- fourth gear on a manual gearbox, - second gear on an automatic gearbox, in sequential mode,
- position D on an automatic gearbox.

The cruise control is switched off manually or by pressing the brake or clutch pedal or on triggering of the ESP system for safety reasons.

It is possible to exceed the programmed speed temporarily by pressing the accelerator pedal.

To return to the programmed speed, simply release the accelerator pedal. Switching off the ignition cancels any programmed speed value.

Steering wheel controls


The controls of this system are grouped together on stalk A .

1. Cruise control mode selection thumb whel
2. Value decrease button 3. Value increase button 4. Cruise control off/resume button

The cruise control cannot, in any circumstances, replace the need to respect speed limits, nor can it replace the need for vigilance and responsibility on the part of the driver.

The programmed information is grouped together on the instrument panel display.

5. Cruise control off/resume indication 6. Cruise control mode selection indication 7. Programmed speed value

Programming


Turn thumb wheel 1 to the "CRUISE" position: the cruise control mode is selected but is not switched on (PAUSE).

Set the programmed speed by accelerating to the required speed, then press button 2 or 3 (e.g.: 70 mph (110 km/h)).

You can then change the programmed speed using buttons 2 and 3 :

- by + or - 1 mph (km/h) = short press, - by + or - 5 mph (km/h) = long press, - in steps of + or - 5 mph (km/h) = maintained press.

Switch off the cruise control by pressing button 4 : the display confi rms that it has been switched off (PAUSE).

Switch the cruise control back on by pressing button 4 again.

Exceeding the programmed speed

Intentional or unintentional exceeding of the programmed speed results in fl ashing of this speed on the display.

Return to the programmed speed, by means of intentional or unintentional deceleration of the vehicle, automatically cancels the fl ashing of the speed.

Leaving cruise control mode

Turn thumb wheel 1 to the "0" position: the cruise control mode is deselected. The display returns to the distance recorder.






Operating fault

In the event of a cruise control malfunction, the speed is cleared resulting in fl ashing of the dashes. Have it checked by a CITROËN dealer.


When the cruise control is switched on, be careful if you maintain the pressure on one of the programmed speed changing buttons: this may result in a very rapid change in the speed of your vehicle.

Do not use the cruise control on slippery roads or in heavy traffi c.

On a steep descent, the cruise control will not be able to prevent the vehicle from exceeding the programmed speed.

To avoid any risk of jamming of the pedals:

- ensure that the mat is positioned correctly,
- never fi t one mat on top of another.
