Peugeot 2008 (2016 year). Instruction - part 8







In bad weather or in winter, ensure 
that the sensors are not covered with 
mud, ice or snow. When reverse gear is 
engaged, an audible signal (long beep) 
indicates that the sensors may be dirty.
Certain sound sources (motorcycle, 
lorry, pneumatic drill, etc.) may trigger 
the audible signals of the parking 
sensor system.

In the event of a malfunction of 
the system, when reverse gear 
is engaged this warning lamp 

is displayed in the instrument panel and/or a 
message appears in the screen, accompanied 
by an audible signal (short beep).
Contact a PEUGEOT dealer or a qualified 

Operating fault

The function will be deactivated 
automatically if a trailer is being towed 
or a bicycle carrier is fitted (vehicle 
fitted with a towbar or bicycle carrier 
recommended by PEUGEOT).

Front parking sensors*

In addition to the rear parking sensors, the 
front parking sensors are triggered when an 
obstacle is detected in front and the speed of 
the vehicle is still below 6 mph (10 km/h).
The front parking sensors are interrupted if 
the vehicle stops for more than 3 seconds 
in forward gear, if no further obstacles are 
detected or when the speed of the vehicle 
exceeds 6 mph (10 km/h).

* Available only with the Park Assist system.

The sound emitted by the speaker (front or 
rear) indicates whether the obstacle is in front 
or behind.

Deactivation / Activation of the 
front and rear parking sensors

The function is deactivated by pressing this 
button. The indicator lamp in the button 
comes on.
Pressing this button again reactivates the 
function. The indicator lamp in the button 
goes off.




Reversing camera

Opening the tailgate causes the display 
to disappear.

The reversing camera is activated automatically 
when reverse gear is engaged.
Depending on version, the image is displayed 
in the touch screen or the instrument panel.

High pressure jet washing
When washing your vehicle, do not 
direct the lance within 30 cm of the 
camera lens.

The superimposed representation of guide 
lines helps with the manoeuvre.
They are represented by lines marked "on 
the ground" and do not allow the position of 
the vehicle to be determined relative to tall 
obstacles (for example: other vehicles, ...).

The reversing camera cannot in any 
circumstances be a substitute for 
vigilance on the part of the driver.

The reversing camera function may be 
completed with parking sensors.

The blue lines represent the general direction 
of the vehicle (the difference corresponds to 
the width of your vehicle without the mirrors).
The red lines represent a distance of about 
30 cm beyond the edge of your vehicle's rear 
The green lines represent distances of about 1 
and 2 metres beyond the edge of your vehicle's 
rear bumper.
The turquoise blue curves represent the 
maximum turning circle.

Clean the reversing camera regularly using a 
soft, dry cloth.

Park Assist

The system detects a parking space and then provides assistance with the parallel parking manoeuvres.
It controls the steering and provides visual and audible information to the driver.
The driver manages the accelerator, brakes, gears and the clutch in the case of a manual gearbox.

The Park Assist system cannot in any 
circumstances replace the need for 
vigilance on the part of the driver.
The driver must remain in control of 
their vehicle ensuring that the space 
remains clear during the manoeuvre.
In some circumstances, the sensors 
may not detect small obstacles located 
in their blind spots.

Changing tyre sizes (out-size tyres, 
winter tyres, ...) can interfere with 
the correct operation of the parking 
assistance system.

During a manoeuvre the steering wheel 
turns quickly: do not hold the steering 
wheel, do not place your hand between 
the spokes of the steering wheel and 
take care with loose and bulky clothing, 
scarves, handbags... There is a risk of 

For entry into a parking space (parallel 
parking) the system does not detect 
spaces which are clearly much smaller 
or larger than the size of the vehicle.
This "parking assistance" system 
is activated automatically during 
manoeuvres; it is therefore possible 
that a symbol comes on in the screen, 
accompanied by an audible signal, 
without affecting the manoeuvre.

The system provides assistance in entering and 
exiting a parking space when parallel parking.

The driver can take back control of the steering 
at any time by grasping the wheel.

The selection of the type of manoeuvre 
(entering or exiting a parallel parking 
space) prevents a change to STOP 
mode of Stop & Start.
In STOP mode, this selection restarts 
the engine.




Entering a parallel parking space

F  Position your vehicle before this space.

To activate the Park Assist system:

F  Operate the direction indicator on the 

parking side.

F  Move forwards alongside the parking 

space at a speed below 12 mph (20 km/h) 
to measure it, keeping at a distance of 
between 0.5 and 1.5 metres from the row of 
parked vehicles.

Once measurement is complete, if the space is 
large enough a message indicates that parking 
is possible.

F  Move your vehicle forward until a new 

message is displayed.

F  Select reverse and release the steering

reduce the speed of the vehicle to a 
maximum of 12 mph (20 km/h).





The assisted parking manoeuvre is in progress.
Without exceeding 5 mph (8 km/h), continue 
the manoeuvres following the information given 
by the "parking assistance" system, until the 
end of manoeuvre message is displayed.
The indicator lamp in the control goes off, 
accompanied by a audible signal.

Exit from a parallel parking space

With the vehicle stationary, to activate the Park 
Assist system:

F  When you want to exit from a parallel 

parking space, start the engine.

The assisted exit from parking manoeuvre is in 
Without exceeding 5 mph (8 km/h), continue the 
manoeuvres following the information given by 
the "parking assistance" system, until the end of

In bad weather and in winter, ensure 
that the sensors are not covered by 
road dirt, ice or snow.
In the event of a fault, have the system 
checked by a PEUGEOT dealer or a 
qualified workshop.

If the system is deactivated during a 
manoeuvre, the drive should reactivate 
it manually to repeat the measurement.

If the lateral distance between your vehicle 
and the space is too great, the system may 
not be able to measure the space.
Anything projecting beyond the envelope 
of the vehicle (long or wide load) is not 
taken into account by the Park Assist 
system during a manoeuvre.


A message is displayed in the screen.

The driver then takes back control of the 
vehicle's steering.

The system is deactivated automatically:

on switching off the ignition,

if the engine stalls,

if no manoeuvre is started within 5 minutes 
of selection of the type of manoeuvre,

after a prolonged stop of the vehicle during 
a manoeuvre,

if the road wheel anti-spin regulation (ASR) 
is triggered,

if the speed of the vehicle exceeds the 
stated limit,

when the driver interrupts movement of the 
steering wheel,

if the driver presses the Park Assist 

if correct positioning of the vehicle is not 
possible (too many manoeuvres needed to 
insert or extract the vehicle),

if the driver's door is open,

if one of the front wheels encounters an 

Switching off

The system is switched off automatically:

when towing a trailer,

if the driver's door is opened,

if the speed of the vehicle is above 42 mph 
(70 km/h).

To switch the system of for a prolonged period, 
contact a PEUGEOT dealer or a qualified 

Operating faults

In the event of a fault with the system, 
this warning lamp is displayed in the 

instrument panel and/or a message appears in the 
screen, accompanied by an audible signal (short beep).
The indicator lamp in the control flashes for a few 
seconds. If the problem occurs while using the system, 
the indicator lamp goes off.

In the event of a fault with 
the power steering, these 
warning lamps come on in 
the instrument panel.

Main lighting

The vehicle has various exterior lamps:

sidelamps, to be seen,

dipped beam headlamps to see without 
dazzling other drivers,

main beam headlamps to see clearly when 
the road is clear.

Additional lighting

Other lamps are fitted to meet particular driving 

a rear foglamp to better signal the 
presence of the vehicle in foggy conditions,

front foglamps with cornering lighting,

daytime running lamps to be seen during 
the day,

guide-me-home and welcome lighting for 
leaving and entering the vehicle.

Automatic lighting 

Various automatic lighting functions are also 
available depending on options:

guide-me-home lighting,

cornering lighting,

welcome lighting,

daytime running lamps,

automatic illumination of headlamps.

In some weather conditions (e.g. low 
temperature or humidity), the presence 
of misting on the internal surface of the 
glass of the headlamps and rear lamps 
is normal; it disappears after the lamps 
have been on for a few minutes.

dipped / main beam headlamps.

In the lighting off and sidelamps modes, the 
driver can switch on the main beam headlamps 
temporarily ("headlamp flash") by maintaining a 
pull on the stalk.


Illumination of the corresponding indicator lamp 
in the instrument panel confirms the lighting 
switched on.





Foglamps selection ring

The foglamps operate with dipped and main beam headlamps.

Front foglamps and rear 

When the headlamps switch off with automatic 
illumination of headlamps (AUTO model) 
or when the dipped beam headlamps are 
switched off manually, the foglamps and 
sidelamps remain on.
F  Turn the ring rearwards to switch off 

the foglamps, the sidelamps will then 
switch off.

(with AUTO model), the foglamp and the dipped 
beam headlamps will remain on.
F  To switch it off, turn the ring rearwards.




In good or rainy weather, both day 
and night, the front foglamps and the 
rear foglamp are prohibited. In these 
situations, the power of their beams 
may dazzle other drivers. They should 
only be used in fog or snow.
In these weather conditions, it is your 
responsibility to switch on the foglamps 
and dipped beam headlamps manually 
as the sunshine sensor may detect 
sufficient light.
Do not forget to switch off the front 
foglamps and the rear foglamp when 
they are no longer necessary.

Switching on the lamps 
after the ignition is 
switched off

To reactivate the lighting control, rotate 
the ring to the "0" position - lamps off, 
then to the desired position.
On opening the driver's door a 
temporary audible signal warns the 
driver that the lighting is on.

sidelamps, switch off automatically after 
a maximum duration of 30 minutes to 
avoid discharging the battery.

Switching off the lamps 
when the ignition is 
switched off

On switching off the ignition, all of the 
lamps turn off immediately, except for 
dipped beam if guide-me-home lighting 
is activated.
