Information displayed on the instrument panel

DS 3. Speed limiter

  1. Speed limiter on/pause status indication
  2. Speed limiter mode selection indication
  3. Programmed speed value
  4. Speed suggested by the Speed Limit recognition and recommendation system (depending on version)

Switching on/Pausing

  • Turn thumbwheel 1 to the "LIMIT" position to select speed limiter mode; the function is paused.
  • If the limit speed setting is suitable (most recent speed setting programmed in the system), press button 4 to switch the speed limiter on.
  • Pressing button 4 again temporarily pauses the function.

DS 3. Speed limiter When the speed setting remains below the vehicle's speed for a prolonged period of time, an audible warning is emitted.

Adjusting the limit speed setting

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

To modify the limit speed setting based on the vehicle’s current speed:

  • Briefly press button 2 or 3 to change the value in steps of + or - 1 mph (1.6 km/h).
  • Press and hold button 2 or 3 to change the value in steps of + or - 5 mph (8 km/h).

To change the limit speed setting using memorised speeds, via the touch screen:

  • Press button 5 to display the memorised speed settings.
  • Press the touch screen button for the desired speed setting.

The selection screen closes after a few moments. This setting becomes the new limit speed.

To modify the cruise speed setting based on the speed suggested by the Speed Limit Recognition and Recommendation, as shown on the instrument panel:

  • Press button 5 once; a message is displayed to confirm the memorisation request.
  • Press button 5 again to save the suggested speed.

The speed is immediately shown on the instrument panel as the new speed setting.

Temporarily exceeding the speed setting

  • Fully depress the accelerator pedal past the point of resistance.

The speed limiter is temporarily deactivated and the displayed speed setting flashes.

  • Release the accelerator pedal to return to below the speed setting.

When exceeding the speed is not due to the driver's action (e.g. in case of a steep slope), an audible signal is triggered immediately.

DS 3. Speed limiter 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 speed setting.

If necessary, apply the brakes to control your vehicle’s speed.

When the vehicle speed returns to the speed setting level, the speed limiter operates again: the speed setting display becomes fixed again.

Switching off

Turn the thumbwheel 1 to the "OFF" position: speed limiter information is no longer displayed.

Malfunction
