QUESTION

SOLUTION

The message "the audio system is overheated" 
appears on the display.

In order to protect the installation if the 
surrounding temperature is too high, the audio 
system switches to an automatic thermal 
protection mode leading to a reduction of the 
volume or stopping of the playing of the CD.

Switch the audio system off for a few minutes to 
allow the system to cool.

Audio

Radio

Selecting a station

Press the 

SRC/BAND button 

repeatedly to select the FM1, FM2 
or AM waveband.

The external environment (hills, buildings, 
tunnels, basement car parks, ...) may 
block reception, including in RDS mode. 
This is a normal effect of the way in 
which radio waves are transmitted and 
does not indicate any failure of the audio 
equipment.

Select a preset radio station.

Make a long press on one of the buttons to 
preset the current radio station. The name of 
the station is displayed and an audible signal 
confirms that it has been preset.

A long press on 

LIST builds or 

updates the list of stations; audio 
reception is cut momentarily.

Press 

LIST to display the 

list of stations received, in 
alphabetical order.

Select the desired radio station 
and confirm by pressing 

OK.

A press changes to the next or 
previous letter (e.g. A, B, D, F, 
G, J, K, ...).

Press a button to listen to the corresponding 
preset station.

210

AUDIO and TELEMATICS

RDS

The RDS, if displayed, enables you to 

continue listening to the same station 

by automatic retuning to alternative 

frequencies. However, in certain conditions, 

coverage of an RDS station may not be 

assured throughout the entire country as 

radio stations do not cover 100% of the 

territory. This explains the loss of reception 

of the station during a journey.

Play TA messages

The TA (Traffic Announcement) function 
gives priority to TA alert messages. 
To operate, this function needs good 
reception of a radio station that carries 
this type of message. When a traffic report 
is transmitted, the current audio source 
(Radio, CD, ...) is interrupted automatically 
to play the TA message. Normal play of 
the media previously playing is resumed at 
the end of the message.

Press 

MENU to activate or 

deactivate the reception of traffic 
messages.

Select 

Radio then confirm by 

pressing 

OK.

Select Traffic TA then confirm by 
pressing 

OK.

Press 

MENU.

Select 

Radio then confirm by 

pressing

CD

Information and advice

The audio system can only play 
files with ".mp3", ".wma" or ".wav" 
extensions.

A high compression rate could damage 
the quality of the sound.

File names should have less than  
20 characters, avoiding special 
characters (e.g.: “ ? ; ù) so as to avoid 
any reading or display problems.

Playlists accepted are types .m3u  
and .pls.
The system can recognise up to 5,000 files 
in 500 folders on 8 levels.

On a given disc, the CD player can read 
up to 255 MP3 files spread over 8 levels. 
However, it is recommended that this 
be kept to 2 levels so as to limit the time 
taken to access and play the CD.
The folder structure is not observed during 
playback.

In order to be able to play a burned 
CDR or CDRW, select standards  
ISO 9660 level 1, 2 or Joliet if possible 
when burning the CD.
If the disc is burned in another format, it 
may not be played correctly.
It is recommended that the same 
burning standard is always used on an 
individual disc, with the lowest speed 
possible (4x maximum) for the best 
acoustic quality.
In the particular case of a multi-
session CD, the Joliet standard is 
recommended.

Frequently asked questions

The following tables contain answers to the most frequently asked questions.

QUESTION

RESPONSE

SOLUTION

There is a difference in sound quality between 
the different audio sources (radio, CD...).

To allow for optimal listening quality, the audio 
settings (Volume, Bass, Treble, Ambience, 
Loudness) can be tailored to different sound 
sources, which can generate audible differences 
when changing source (radio, CD...).

Check that the audio settings (volume, bass, 
treble, ambience, loudness) are adapted to 
the sources listened to. It is advisable to set 
the AUDIO functions (Bass, Treble, Front-
Rear Fader, Left-Right Balance) to the middle 
position, select the musical ambience "None" 
and set the loudness correction to the "Active" 
position in CD mode or to the "Inactive" position 
in radio mode.

When changing the settings for treble and bass, 
the ambience setting is deselected.
When changing the ambience setting, treble and 
bass are reset to zero.

Choosing an ambience imposes settings for 
treble and bass. Modifying one without the other 
is not possible.

Modify the treble and bass settings or the 
ambience setting to obtain the desired sound 
quality.

The reception quality of the tuned radio station 
gradually deteriorates or the stored stations are 
not working (no sound, 87.5 Mhz is displayed ...).

The vehicle is too far from the transmitter of 
the station or no transmitter is present in the 
geographical area.

Activate the RDS mode and start a new search 
for the station so that the system can check 
whether a stronger transmitter is available in the 
geographic area.

The environment (hills, buildings, tunnels, 
basement car parks...) block reception, including 
in RDS mode.

This phenomenon is normal and does not 
indicate a failure of the audio equipment.

The aerial is absent or has been damaged (for 
example when going through a car wash or into 
an underground car park).

Have the antenna checked by the PEUGEOT 
network.

216

AUDIO and TELEMATICS

QUESTION

RESPONSE

SOLUTION

Sound cut-outs of 1 to 2 seconds in radio mode. During this brief sound cut-out, the RDS 

searches for any frequency permitting better 
reception of the station.

Switch off the RDS function if the phenomenon 
is too frequent and always on the same route.

The traffic announcement (TA) is displayed. I do 
not receive any traffic information.

The radio station does not broadcast traffic 
information.

Tune to a radio station which broadcasts traffic 
information.

The stored stations are not found (no sound, 
87.5 MHz is displayed...).

An incorrect waveband is selected.

Press the SRC button to return to the waveband 
(AM, FM1, FM2) on which the stations are 
stored.

The CD is ejected every time or is not played.

The CD is upside down, cannot be read, does 
not contain audio files or contains audio files 
of a format that cannot be played by the audio 
system.
The CD is protected by an anti-pirating system 
not recognised by the audio system.

-  Check that the CD is inserted in the player 

the right way up.

-  Check the condition of the CD: the CD 

cannot be played if it is too badly damaged.

-  Check the content in the case of a recorded 

CD: consult the advice in the "Audio" 
section.

-  The audio system CD does not read DVDs.
-  Due to insufficient quality, certain burned 

CDs will not be read by the audio system.

Insert good quality CDs and store them in 
suitable conditions.

The CD sound is of poor quality.

The CD used is scratched or of poor quality.

The audio settings (bass, treble, ambience) are 
unsuitable.

Return bass and treble settings to 0, without 
selecting an ambience.

In "Random all" play, not all of the tracks are 
played.

In "Random all" play, the system can only take 
into account up to 999 tracks.

AUDIO and TELEMATICS

QUESTION

RESPONSE

SOLUTION

With the engine off, the audio system switches 
off after a few minutes of use.

When the engine is switched off, the audio 
system operating time depends on the battery 
charge.
The switch-off is normal: the audio system 
switches to economy mode and switches off to 
prevent discharging the vehicle's battery.

Turn the ignition on to increase charge of the 
battery.

The message "the audio system is overheated" 
appears on the display.

In order to protect the installation if the 
surrounding temperature is too high, the audio 
system switches to an automatic thermal 
protection mode leading to a reduction of the 
volume or stopping of the playing of the CD.

Switch the audio system off for a few minutes to 
allow the system to cool.
