Citroen C3. 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 based on the speed suggested by the Speed Limit Recognition and Recommendation:

  • the suggested speed is displayed on the instrument panel,
  • press button 5 once; a message is displayed, confirming the memorisation request,
  • press button 5 again to save the suggested speed.

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

Temporarily exceeding the speed setting

  • Fully depress the accelerator pedal.

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

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

When the limit speed is exceeded other than as a result of action by the driver (on a steep slope, for example), an audible signal triggers immediately.

Citroen C3. 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, use the brakes to control the speed of your vehicle.

Once the speed of the vehicle returns to the speed setting, the speed limiter resumes operation: the display of the speed setting becomes fixed again.

Switching off

  • Turn the thumbwheel 1 to the "OFF" position: the display of information on the speed limiter disappears.

Malfunction
