Gear lever Selecting reverse gear
With the vehicle stationary, move the gear lever into neutral then into reverse. Follow the grid drawn on gear knob 1, lift ring 2 against the gear knob to select reverse gear. The reversing lights will come on as soon as reverse gear is selected (with the ignition on).
Pull-up handbrake (depending on the vehicle)
- To apply:
Pull lever 4 upwards then release it. It returns to the horizontal position.
- To release
Press button 3 and pull lever 4 upwards then place it in a horizontal position.
When the ignition is switched on, the 2 screen on the roof centre console dis- plays the view behind the vehicle that is transmitted by the camera 1.
Note: the 2 screen view may be may be displayed left to right.
The camera is equipped with an auto- matic de-icer which is activated when the temperature is below approximately 8°C. Make sure that the 1 camera is not ob- scured (by dirt, mud, snow, condensa- tion etc.). This function is an additional aid. It cannot, therefore, under any circumstances replace the vigilance or the responsibility of the driver.
The driver should always be ready for sudden incidents while driv- ing: always ensure that there are no small, narrow moving obstacles (such as a child, animal, pushchair, bicycle, stone, post, etc.) in the blind spot when manoeuvring.
The camera’s field of vision does not cover the entire area behind the vehi- cle, particularly the blind spot area A. On vehicles equipped with the Stop and Start function, the display remains active when the engine is in standby. Objects which appear on the edge of screen 2 may be deformed.In very bright light (snow, vehicle in sunshine, etc.), the camera view may be partially obscured. In low brightness or poor weather, the image on the screen may be dis- torted.
Switching off the function
The display switches of:
- up to approximately ten seconds after the reverse gear is engaged;
- 30 seconds after the ignition is switched off.
Adjustment of the display
Accessing the brightness modes
Press button 6 repeatedly to select one of the four preset brightness modes:
- “day” mode;
- “intermediary” mode;
- “night” mode;
- “black screen” mode: allows suspen- sion of the display. Screen 2 displays a black image accompanied by the “OFF” message. To exit this mode, press button 6 again to access the first brightness mode (“day” mode).
Adjustment of brightness modes
Once the mode has been selected, press button 5 as many times as re- quired to access the type of setting you wish to change:
- RESET: resets factory settings.
Press buttons 3 (+) or 4 (-) to adjust the setting.
Note: only the first three modes (“day”, “intermediary” and “night”) can be set.
When the system detects an operating fault, warning light B appears temporar- ily on screen 2. This may be caused a temporary fault affecting the camera or screen (clear- ness, fixed image, delayed communi- cation, etc.). If the warning light remains on, consult an approved dealer.
Anti-lock braking system (ABS)
Under heavy braking, the ABS prevents the wheels from locking, allowing the stopping distance to be managed and keeping control of the vehicle. Under these circumstances, the vehi-cle can be steered to avoid an obstacle whilst braking. In addition, this system can increase stopping distances, par-ticularly on roads with low surface grip (wet ground etc.). You will feel a pulsation through the brake pedal each time the system is activated. The ABS does not in any way improve the vehicle’s physical per-formance relating to the road surface and road-holding. It is still essential to follow the rules of good driving practice (such as driving at a safe distance from the vehicle in front etc.). In an emergency, apply firm and continuous pressure to the brake pedal. There is no need to pump it repeatedly. The ABS will modu-late the force applied in the braking system.
DRIVING CORRECTION DEVICES AND AIDS
Electronic stability program (ESC) with understeer control and traction control
Electronic stability control ESC
This system helps you to keep control of the vehicle in critical driving condi-tions (avoiding an obstacle, loss of grip on a bend, etc.).
A sensor in the steering wheel detects the direction selected by the driver. Other sensors throughout the vehicle measure the actual direction. The system compares driver input to the actual trajectory of the vehicle and corrects the trajectory if necessary by controlling the braking of certain wheels and/or engine power. In the event that the system is engaged, indicator light flashes on the instrument panel.
This system optimises the action of the ESC in the case of pronounced under-steer (loss of front axle road holding).
Assistance with side winds
This system optimises the action of the ESC and also helps to control the vehi- cle in case of variation of side winds. It helps maintain the vehicle trajectory through the use of the brakes. If the system is triggered, the warning light appears on the instrument panel. These functions are an ad-ditional aid in the event of critical driving conditions, enabling the vehicle behaviour to be adapted to suit the driving conditions. The functions do not take the place of the driver. They do not increase the vehicle’s limits and should not encourage you to drive more quickly. Therefore, they can under no circumstances replace the vigi- lance or responsibility of the driver when manoeuvring the vehicle (the driver must always be ready for sudden incidents which may occur when driving).
This system helps to limit wheelspin of the drive wheels and to control the ve-hicle when pulling away accelerating or decelerating.
Using the wheel sensors, the system measures and compares the speed of the drive wheels at all times and slows down their over-rotation. If a wheel is starting to slip, the system brakes au- tomatically until the drive supplied be- comes compatible with the level of grip under the wheel again. The system also adjusts the engine speed to the grip available under the wheels, independently of the pressure exerted on the accelerator pedal.
Driver assistance with a trailer
This system helps to maintain control over the vehicle while using a trailer. It detects shaking caused by towing a trailer under certain driving conditions.
- The towbar must be approved by an authorised dealer;
- the harness must be approved by an authorised dealer;
- the towbar must be connected to the vehicle.
The function stabilises the vehicle by:
- asymmetric braking of the front wheels to reduce shaking caused by the trailer;
- braking of all four wheels and limita- tion on engine torque to reduce the vehicle speed until the shaking has stopped.
Emergency brake assist
This system supplements the ABS and helps reduce vehicle stopping dis-tances.
The system is for detecting an emer- gency braking situation. In this case, the braking assistance immediately de- velops maximum power and may trig- ger ABS regulation. ABS braking is maintained as long as the brake pedal is applied. Hazard warning lights switching on Depending on the vehicle, these may light up in the event of sudden decel- eration.
When the system detects an operating fault the message “WARNING: Check ABS” appears on the instrument panel along with the © warning light. Consult an approved dealer.
If fitted on the vehicle, grip control makes it easier to control the vehicle on low grip surfaces (soft ground, etc.). These functions are an ad-ditional aid in the event of critical driving conditions, enabling the vehicle behaviour to be adapted to suit the driving conditions. The functions do not take the place of the driver. They do not increase the vehicle’s limits and should not encourage you to drive more quickly. Therefore, they can under no circumstances replace the vigi- lance or responsibility of the driver when manoeuvring the vehicle (the driver must always be ready for sudden incidents which may occur when driving). Press the 4 switch: the message “Grip Extend Loose Surface ON” is displayed on the instrument panel. This position enables optimal usage on soft ground (mud, sand, dead leaves, etc.). In this position, engine speed is left under the driver’s control. The system automatically switches to “Road” mode at speeds above about 31 mph (50 km/h). The message “Standard road mode on” is displayed on the instrument panel to warn you.
SCREEN WASHER, WIPER
Vehicle fitted with intermittent windscreen wipers
- intermittent wiping
The wipers will pause for several seconds between sweeps. It is pos-sible to change the time between sweeps by turning ring 2.
- normal wiping speed
- fast wiping speed
When driving the vehicle, the wiping speed slows down whenever the ve-hicle stops. For example, fast wiping speed will slow to normal wiping speed. As soon as the vehicle moves off, wiping will return to the speed originally selected. If stalk 1 is operated, it overrides and cancels the automatic function.
Note: in the event of mechanical sei- zure, the system automatically cuts the power supply to the wipers.
- the rain sensor is only intended as a driving aid. In the event of reduced visibility, the driver should manually activate the wipers. In foggy weather or during snowfalls, wiping is not automatically triggered and remains under the driver’s control;
- in the event of temperatures below zero, automatic wiping is not acti- vated when the vehicle is started. It is automatically activated as soon as the vehicle exceeds a certain speed (approximately 5 mph (8 km/h));
do not activate automatic wiping in dry weather;
- fully de-ice the windscreen before activating automatic wiping.
With the ignition on, pull stalk 1 then release. A brief pull will trigger a single sweep of the wipers, in addition to the wind-screen washer. A longer pull will trigger three sweeps of the wipers followed, a few seconds later, by a fourth, in addition to the wind-screen washer.
Efficiency of a wiper blade
Check the condition of the wiper blades. How long they last depends on you:
- it must remain clean: clean the blade and the screen regularly with soapy water;
- do not use it when the screen is dry;
- free it from the screen when it has not been used for a long time.
In all cases, replace it as soon as it begins to lose efficiency: approxi- mately once a year.
Precautions for using the wipers
- In freezing or snowy weather, clear the screen before starting the wipers (risk of motor over- heating);
- ensure that no objects are ob- structing the travel of the blade.
When working in the engine compartment, ensure that the windscreen wiper stalk is in position A (park).
Daytime running lights function
The daytime running lights come on automatically with no action on stalk 1 when the engine is started, and they go off once the engine is switched off.
“See-me-home lighting” function
This function allows you to briefly switch on the dipped beam headlights (to pro-vide light when opening a gate, etc.). With the engine and lights switched off, and the ring 3 in position AUTO, pull the stalk 1 towards you: the dipped beam headlights come on for approximately one minute. To increase this du- ration, you may pull the stalk up to four times (total time restricted to approximately four minutes). To switch off the lights before they go out automatically, turn ring 3 to any position, then return it to position AUTO. If the vehicle is parked on the hard shoulder with the tailgate open, the rear lights may be obscured. You should make other road users aware of your vehicle by using a warning triangle or other equipment specified by the road traffic regulations of the country you are driving in.
Main beam headlights
With the dipped beam headlights lit, pull the stalk 1. This indicator light on the instrument panel comes on. To return to the dipped headlight posi-tion, pull stalk 1 towards you again.
Automatic main beam headlights
Depending on the vehicle, this system switches the main beam headlights on and off automatically. The function uses a camera located behind the interior rear-view mirror to detect vehicles that are following and coming in the opposite direction.
The main beam headlights come on automatically if:
- exterior light is weak;
- no other vehicles or lighting are detected;
- the vehicle speed is above approximately 30 mph (45 km/h).
If any of the above conditions are not fulfilled, the system switches to dipped beam headlights.
Note: make sure the windscreen is not obscured (dirt, mud, snow, condensation etc.).
The system may encounter difficulties under certain conditions, including:
- extreme weather conditions (rain, snow, fog, etc.);
- obstruction in front of the windscreen or camera;
- when a following or oncoming vehicle has weak or hidden lighting;
- incorrect settings for the front headlights;
- reflective systems;
The “automatic main beam headlights” system should under no circumstances be used to replace driver attention and responsibility with regard to vehicle lighting and adapting to light, visibility and traffic conditions..
Front fog lights
Turn the centre ring 4 of the stalk 1 until the symbol is opposite the 5 mark. The front fog lights only work if the ex-terior lights have been activated. An in-dicator light on the instrument panel will come on.
Rear fog lights
Turn the centre ring 4 of the stalk 1 until the symbol is opposite the 5 mark. The rear fog lights only work if the ex-terior lights have been activated. An in-dicator light on the instrument panel will come on.
Do not forget to switch off the fog lights when they are no longer needed, to avoid inconveniencing other road users. When the exterior vehicle lights are switched off, the rear fog lights switch off or the equipment returns to the front fog lights position (if they are fitted).
Switching off the lights
The lights will go out automatically when the engine is switched off, the driver’s door is opened or the vehicle is locked. In this case, the next time the engine is started the lights will be switched back on according to the position of the ring 3.
Lights-on warning buzzer
If the lights are on after the engine is switched off, a warning beep sounds when the driver’s door is opened to warn you that the lights are still on (to avoid battery discharge).
HEADLIGHT BEAM ADJUSTMENT
On vehicles fitted with this function, control A allows you to adjust the height of the beams according to the load. Turn control A downwards to lower the headlights and upwards to raise them.
HEADLIGHT BEAM ADJUSTMENT
When driving on the left in a left-hand drive vehicle (or vice versa), you must adjust your lights temporarily for the duration of your trip.
