Peugeot 2008 (2016 year). Instruction - part 4







Lost keys

Go to a PEUGEOT dealer with the vehicle's registration document, your personal identification documents and if possible the key code label.
The PEUGEOT dealer will be able to look up the key code and the transponder code required to order a new key.

Remote control

The high frequency remote control is a sensitive system; do not operate it while it is in your pocket as there is a possibility that it may unlock the 
vehicle, without you being aware of it.
Do not repeatedly press the buttons of your remote control out of range and out of sight of your vehicle. You run the risk of stopping it from 
working and the remote control would have to be reinitialised.
No remote control can operate when the key is in the ignition switch, even when the ignition is switched off, except for reinitialisation.

Anti-theft protection

Do not make any modifications to the electronic engine immobiliser system; this could cause malfunctions.

Locked vehicle

Driving with the doors locked may make access to the passenger compartment by the emergency services more difficult in an emergency.
As a safety precaution, never leave children alone in the vehicle, except for a very short period.
In all cases, it is essential to remove the key from the ignition switch when leaving the vehicle.

Second-hand vehicle

Have the pairing of all of the keys in your possession checked by a PEUGEOT dealer, to ensure that only your keys can be used to open and 
start the vehicle.

The alarm is triggered if anyone tries to open a 
door, the boot, the bonnet...

- Interior volumetric

The system checks for any variation in the 
volume in the passenger compartment.
The alarm is triggered if anyone breaks a 
window, enters the passenger compartment or 
moves inside the vehicle.

Self-protection function

The system checks for the putting out of 
service of its components.
The alarm is triggered if the battery, the

it downwards to lower, as many times as 
required, to obtain the position required.

F  Push the control rearwards.




Before moving the seat backwards, ensure that there is nothing that might prevent the full travel of the seat, so as to avoid the risk of jamming 
the seat caused by the presence of objects on the floor behind the seat or rear passengers. If the seat jams, stop the movement immediately.

As a safety measure, seat adjustments should only be carried out when stationary.





With the engine running, the front seats can be 
heated separately.
F  Use the adjustment dial, placed on the side

and the head restraint at the same time.

The head restraint has a frame with 
notches which prevent it from lowering; 
this is a safety device in case of impact.
The adjustment is correct when the 
upper edge of the head restraint is 
level with the top of the head.
Never drive with the head restraints 
removed; they must be in place and 
adjusted correctly.
