 ADVICE ON CHILD SEATS

  Installing a booster seat 
 The chest part of the seat belt must 

be positioned on the child's shoulder 

without touching the neck. 
 Ensure that the lap part of the 

seat belt passes correctly over the 

child's thighs. 
 PEUGEOT recommends the use of 

a booster seat which has a back, fi t-

ted with a seat belt guide at shoulder 

level. 

 The incorrect installation of a child 

seat in a vehicle compromises the 

child's protection in the event of an 

accident. 
 Remember to fasten the seat belts 

or the child seat harnesses keep-

ing the slack relative to the child's 

body to a minimum, even for short 

journeys. 
 When installing a child seat using 

the seat belt, ensure that the seat 

belt is tightened correctly on the 

child seat and that it secures the 

child seat fi rmly on the seat of your 

vehicle. Move the seat forwards if 

necessary. 
 For optimum installation of the "for-

wards-facing" child seat, ensure that 

the back of the child seat is in contact 

with the back of the vehicle's seat 

and that the head restraint does not 

cause any discomfort. 
 If the head restraint has to be re-

moved, ensure that it is stored or 

attached securely to prevent it from 

being thrown around the vehicle in 

the event of sharp braking. 

 As a safety precaution, do not leave: 
   -  

a child or children alone and un-

supervised in a vehicle, 

  -  

a child or an animal in a vehicle 

which is exposed to the sun, 

with the windows closed, 

  -  

the keys within reach of children 

inside the vehicle.  

 To prevent accidental opening of 

the doors and rear windows, use 

the "Child lock". 
 Take care not to open the rear windows 

by more than one third. 
 To protect young children from the 

rays of the sun, fi t side blinds on 

the rear windows.   

 Children under the age of 10 must 

not travel in the "forwards-facing" 

position on the front passenger seat, 

unless the rear seats are already 

occupied by other children, cannot 

be used or are absent. 
 Deactivate the passenger airbag 

when a "rearwards-facing" child 

seat is installed on the front seat. 
 Otherwise, the child would risk being 

seriously injured or killed if the airbag 

were to infl ate.

 The incorrect installation of a child 

seat in a vehicle compromises the 

child's protection in the event of an 

accident. 

 For information regarding the ISOFIX 

child seats which can be installed in 

your vehicle, refer to the table giving 

the locations for the installation of 

ISOFIX child seats. 

"ISOFIX" MOUNTINGS

 Your vehicle has been approved in accor-

dance with the  new ISOFIX regulation s. 
 The seats, represented below, are fi tted 

with regulation ISOFIX mountings: 

 These are three rings for each seat: 

   -   two rings  

A , located between the 

vehicle seat back and cushion, indi-

cated by a label, 

  -   a ring  B , for fi xing the upper strap 

referred to as the  TOP TETHER .  

 This ISOFIX mounting system guarantees 

you fast, reliable and safe fi tting of the child 

seat in your vehicle. 
 The  ISOFIX child seats  are fi tted  with 

two locks which are secured easily on 

the two rings  A . 
 Some also have an  upper strap  which 

is attached to ring  B . 
 To attach this strap, raise the vehicle 

seat's head restraint then pass the hook 

between its rods. Then fi x the hook on 

ring  B  and tighten the upper strap.

BRAKING ASSISTANCE 
SYSTEMS *  

 Group of supplementary systems which 

help you to obtain optimum braking in 

complete safety in emergency situations: 
   -  

anti-lock braking system (ABS), 

  -   electronic brake force distribution 

(EBFD), 

  -  

emergency braking assistance (EBA).  

  Anti-lock braking system 

and electronic brake force 

distribution 

 Linked systems which improve the sta-

bility and manoeuvrability of your vehi-

cle when braking, in particular on poor 

or slippery surfaces. 

  When braking in an emergency, 

press very fi rmly without releasing 

the pressure.  

          Emergency braking assistance 

 System which, in an emergency, en-

ables you to obtain the optimum braking 

pressure more quickly, thus reducing 

the stopping distance. 

  Activation 
 The anti-lock braking system comes 

into operation automatically when there 

is a risk of wheel lock. 
 Normal operation of the ABS may make 

itself felt by slight vibration of the brake 

pedal.  

  Activation 
 It is triggered by the speed at which the 

brake pedal is pressed. 
 The effect of this is a reduction in the 

resistance of the pedal and an increase 

in braking effi ciency. 

  *   According to country.  

 When braking in an emergency, 

press  fi rmly without releasing the 

pressure.   

  Operating fault 

 If this warning lamp comes on, 

accompanied by an audible sig-

nal and a message in the mul-

tifunction screen, it indicates a 

malfunction of the anti-lock braking sys-

tem which could result in loss of control 

of the vehicle when braking. 

 If this warning lamp comes on, 

together with the  

STOP  and 

 ABS  warning lamps, accompa-

nied by an audible signal and a 

message in the multifunction screen, it 

indicates a malfunction of the electron-

ic brake force distribution which could 

result in loss of control of the vehicle 

when braking. 
  You must stop as soon as it is safe 

to do so.  

 In either case, contact a PEUGEOT 

dealer or a qualifi ed workshop.  

  When replacing wheels (tyres and 

rims), ensure that they conform to 

the manufacturer's recommenda-

tions.

SAFETY

104

  The ESP/ASR systems offer ex-

ceptional safety in normal driving, 

but this should not encourage the 

driver to take extra risks or drive at 

high speed. 
 The correct functioning of these 

systems depends on observation 

of the manufacturer's recommen-

dations on: 
   -  

wheels (tyres and rims), 

  -  

braking system components, 

  -  electronic 

components, 

  -   assembly and repair proce-

dures.  

 After an impact, have these sys-

tems checked by a PEUGEOT 

dealer or a qualifi ed workshop.   

   Deactivation 
 In exceptional conditions (starting a 

vehicle which is bogged down, stuck 

in snow, on soft ground, ...), it may be 

advisable to disarm the ASR and ESP 

systems, so that the wheels can move 

freely and regain grip. 

   )   Press the  "ESP OFF"  button, locat-

ed in the centre of the dashboard.  

 If this warning lamp comes on in the instru-

ment panel and the indicator lamp in the 

button comes on, this indicates that the 

ASR and ESP systems are deactivated.  

  Reactivation 
 These systems are reactivated automat-

ically each time the ignition is switched 

back on or from 30 mph (50 km/h). 
   )   Press the  "ESP OFF"  button again 

to reactivate them manually.   

TRAJECTORY CONTROL
SYSTEMS 

  Activation 
 These systems are activated automati-

cally each time the vehicle is started. 

  Anti-slip regulation (ASR) and 

electronic stability programme 

(ESP) 

 They come into operation in 

the event of a grip or trajectory 

problem. 
 This is indicated by fl ashing  of 

this warning lamp in the instru-

ment panel.   

  Steering/ESP coupling system 

(SSP) 

  The anti-slip regulation (also known as 

Traction Control) optimises traction to 

prevent skidding of the wheels, by act-

ing on the brakes of the driving wheels 

and on the engine. 
 The electronic stability programme acts 

on the brake of one or more wheels and 

on the engine to keep the vehicle on the 

trajectory required by the driver, within 

the limits of the laws of physics.  

  This system optimises the stability of 

the vehicle and its braking capacity by 

combining the actions of the ESP and 

electric power steering when braking on 

surfaces on which the grip of the right-

hand and left-hand wheel differs. 
 It permits increased braking of the 

wheels which are in contact with the 

section of road offering the higher level 

of grip and, anticipating the instability of 

the vehicle, the application of a slight 

correction to the turning angle of the 

wheels to assist the driver in maintain-

ing his trajectory.    

  Operating fault 

  If this warning lamp comes on, 

accompanied by an audible sig-

nal and a message in the multi-

function screen, this indicates a 

malfunction of these systems. 

 Have them checked by a PEUGEOT 

dealer or a qualifi ed workshop.

 This system improves safety in the front 

seats in the event of front impacts. De-

pending on the severity of the impact, 

the pretensioning system instantly tight-

ens the seat belts against the body of 

the occupants. 
 The pretensioning seat belts are active 

when the ignition is on. 
 The force limiter reduces the pressure 

of the seat belt on the chest of the oc-

cupant, increasing his protection. 
 On the 5-door versions, a slider, fi tted 

on the seat belt, makes it possible to 

support the buckle as close as possible 

to the upper mounting.

      The driver must ensure that the 

passengers use the seat belts cor-

rectly and that they are all properly 

restrained before setting off. 
 Wherever you are seated in the ve-

hicle, always fasten your seat belt, 

even for short journeys. 
 Do not invert the seat belt buckles 

as they will not fulfi l their role fully. 
 If the seats have armrests * , the lap 

part of the seat belt must always 

pass under the armrest. 
 The seat belts are fi tted with an in-

ertia reel permitting automatic ad-

justment of the length of the strap 

to your size. The seat belt is stored 

automatically when not in use. 
 Before and after use, ensure that 

the seat belt is reeled in correctly. 
 The lower part of the strap must be 

positioned as low as possible on 

the pelvis. 
 The upper part must be positioned 

in the hollow of the shoulder. 
 The inertia reels are fi tted with an 

automatic locking device which 

comes into operation in the event of 

a collision, on emergency braking 

or if the vehicle rolls over. You can 

release the device by pulling rapidly 

on the strap and releasing it. 

  *   According to model.  

 In order to be effective, a seat belt: 
   -   must be tightened as close to the 

body as possible, 

  -  

must restrain one adult only, 

  -   must not bear any trace of cuts or 

fraying, 

  -  

must be pulled in front of you with a 

smooth movement, checking that it 

does not twist, 

  -  

must not be transformed or modifi ed 

to avoid altering its performance.  

 In accordance with current safety regu-

lations, all repairs and checks must be 

carried out by a PEUGEOT dealer who 

can guarantee that the work is carried 

out correctly, or qualifi ed workshop. 
 Have your seat belts checked regularly 

by a PEUGEOT dealer or a qualifi ed 

workshop and particularly if the straps 

show signs of damage. 
 Clean the seat belt straps with soapy 

water or a textile cleaning product, sold 

by PEUGEOT dealers. 
 After folding or moving a seat or rear 

bench seat, ensure that the seat belt is 

positioned and rolled up correctly.  

  Recommendations for children: 
   -  

use a suitable child seat if the pas-

senger is less than 12 years old or 

shorter than one metre fi fty, 

  -   do not use the strap-guide *  when 

a child seat is installed, 

  -   never use the same seat belt to 

secure more than one person, 

  -   never allow a child to travel on 

your lap.  

  Depending on the nature and se-

riousness of the impacts , the pre-

tensioning device may be triggered 

before and independently of the air-

bags. Triggering of the pre-tensioners 

is accompanied by a slight emission of 

harmless smoke and a noise, due to 

the activation of the pyrotechnic car-

tridge incorporated in the system. 
 In all cases, the airbag warning lamp 

comes on. 
 Following an impact, have the seat 

belts system checked, and if neces-

sary replaced, by a PEUGEOT dealer 

or a qualifi ed workshop.

 Deployment of the airbag(s) is ac-

companied by a slight emission of 

harmless smoke and a noise, due to 

the activation of the pyrotechnic car-

tridge incorporated in the system. 
 This smoke is not harmful, but sen-

sitive individuals may experience 

slight irritation. 
 The noise of the detonation may 

result in a slight loss of hearing for 

a short time.   

 System designed to maximise the safety 

of the occupants (with the exception of 

the rear centre passenger) in the event 

of violent collisions. It supplements the 

action of the force-limiting seat belts. 

 If a collision occurs, the electronic de-

tectors record and analyse the front and 

side impacts sustained in the impact 

detection zones: 
   -   in the case of a serious impact, the 

airbags are deployed instantly and 

protect the occupants of the vehicle 

(with the exception of the rear centre 

passenger); immediately after the 

impact, the airbags defl ate  rapidly 

so that they do not hinder visibility 

or the exit of the occupants, 

  -  

in the case of a minor or rear impact 

or in certain roll-over conditions, the 

airbags will not be deployed; the 

seat belt alone is suffi cient to pro-

vide optimum protection in these 

situations.

SAFETY

109

 If both airbag warning lamps come 

on continuously, do not install a 

"rear facing" child seat on the front 

passenger seat. 
 Have it checked by a PEUGEOT 

dealer or a qualifi ed workshop.   

  Operating fault 

 If this warning lamp comes on in 

the instrument panel, accompa-

nied by an audible warning and 

a message in the multifunction 

screen, contact a PEUGEOT dealer or a 

qualifi ed workshop to have the system 

checked. The airbags may no longer be 

deployed in the event of a serious impact. 

 To assure the safety of your child, 

it is imperative that the passen-

ger's airbag is deactivated when 

you install a "rear facing" child seat 

on the front passenger seat. 
 Otherwise, the child would risk be-

ing seriously injured or killed if the 

airbag were deployed.  

 According to version, this warn-

ing lamp comes on either in the 

instrument panel or in the central 

panel when the ignition is on and 

until the airbag is reactivated. 

  Reactivation 
 When you remove the child seat, turn 

switch  1  to the  "ON"  position to reacti-

vate the airbag and so assure the safety 

of your front passenger in the event of 

an impact.  

  Deactivation 
 Only the front passenger's airbag can 

be deactivated: 
   )    with the ignition off , insert the key 

in the passenger airbag deactivation 

switch  1 , 

  )   turn it to the  "OFF"  position, 
  )   then, remove the key keeping the 

switch in the new position.

          Lateral airbags *  

 System which protects the driver and 

front passenger in the event of a seri-

ous side impact in order to limit the risk 

of injury to the chest. 
 Each lateral airbag is fi tted in the front 

seat back frame, on the door side. 

  Operation 
 It is deployed unilaterally in the event 

of a serious side impact applied to all 

or part of the side impact zone  B , per-

pendicular to the longitudinal centreline 

of the vehicle on a horizontal plane and 

directed from the outside towards the 

inside of the vehicle. 
 The lateral airbag infl ates between the 

front occupant of the vehicle and the 

corresponding door trim panel.  

  Curtain airbags *  

 System which protects the driver and 

passengers (with the exception of the 

rear centre passenger) in the event of a 

serious side impact in order to limit the 

risk of head injuries. 
 Each curtain airbag is fi tted in the pil-

lars and the upper part of the passenger 

compartment. 

 If this warning lamp comes on 

in the instrument panel, accom-

panied by an audible signal and 

a message on the multifunction 

screen, contact a PEUGEOT dealer or 

a qualifi ed workshop to have the system 

checked. The airbags may no longer be 

deployed in the event of a serious impact.   

  *   According to country.  

  Operating fault 

  Operation 
 It is deployed at the same time as the 

corresponding lateral airbag in the event 

of a serious side impact applied to all or 

part of the side impact zone  B , perpen-

dicular to the longitudinal centreline of 

the vehicle on a horizontal plane and 

directed from the outside towards the 

inside of the vehicle. 
 The curtain airbag infl ates between the 

front or rear occupant of the vehicle and 

the windows. 

 In the event of a minor impact or 

bump on the side of the vehicle or 

if the vehicle rolls over, the airbag 

may not be deployed. 
 The airbag is not deployed in the 

event of a rear or front collision.  

  Impact detection zones 

   A.   Front impact zone. 
  B.   Side impact zone.    

  * According to country.
