General safety recommendations

Labels are applied at various 
points on your vehicle. They carry 
safety warnings as well as vehicle 
identification information. Do not 
remove them: they form an integral part 
of your vehicle.

We draw your attention to 
the following points:

The fitting of electrical equipment 
or accessories not listed by 
PEUGEOT may cause faults and 
failures with the electrical system of 
your vehicle. Contact a PEUGEOT 
dealer for information on the range 
of recommended accessories.

As a safety measure, access to 
the diagnostic socket, used for 
the vehicle's electronic systems, 
is reserved strictly for PEUGEOT 
dealers or qualified workshops, 
equipped with the special tools 
required (risk of malfunctions of the 
vehicle's electronic systems that 
could cause breakdowns or serious 
accidents). The manufacturer 
cannot be held responsible if this 
advice is not followed.

Any modification or adaptation 
not intended or authorised by 
Automobiles PEUGEOT or 
carried out without meeting the 
technical requirements defined 
by the manufacturer would lead 
to the suspension of the legal and 
contractual warranties.

Installation of accessory 
radio communication 

Before installing a radio communication 
transmitter, you must contact a 
PEUGEOT dealer for the specification 
of transmitters which can be fitted 
(frequency, maximum power, 
aerial position, specific installation 
requirements), in line with the Vehicle 
Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive 

Depending on the legislation in force in 
the country, certain safety equipment

safety vests, warning triangles, 
breathalyzers, spare bulbs, spare fuses, 
fire extinguisher, first aid kit, mud flaps 
at the rear of the vehicle.
The fitting of electrical equipment 
or accessories which are not 
recommended by PEUGEOT may result 
in a failure of your vehicle's electronic 
system and excessive electrical 
Contact a PEUGEOT dealer 
for information on the range of 
recommended equipment and 

For any work on your vehicle, use 
a qualified workshop that has the 
technical information, skills and 
equipment required, all of which a

Direction indicators

F  Lower the lighting control stalk fully when 

moving to the left.

F  Raise the lighting control stalk fully when 

moving to the right.

Three flashes

Move the stalk briefly upwards or downwards, 
without going beyond the point of resistance; 
the corresponding direction indicators will flash 
3 times.

If you forget to cancel the direction 
indicators for more than 20 seconds, 
the volume of the audible signal will 
increase if the speed is above 40 mph 
(60 km/h).

Hazard warning lamps

F  Press this button, all of the direction 

indicators flash.

They can operate with the ignition off.

This function can be used at any speed, 
but it is particularly useful for changing 
lane on fast roads.

Visual warning with of all the direction 
indicators flashing to alert other road users to a 
vehicle breakdown, towing or accident.

Automatic operation

the rate of deceleration, the lamps come on 
They switch off automatically the first time you 
F  You can also switch them off by pressing 

the button.





F  Press the central part of the multifunction 

steering wheel.

Audible warning system to alert other road 
users to an imminent danger.

Use the horn moderately and only in 
situations allowed by the motoring 
regulations in the country you are 
driving in.

Emergency or 
assistance call

This system allows you to make an emergency 
or assistance call to the emergency services or 
to the dedicated PEUGEOT service.

For more information on the use of this 
function, refer to the "Audio equipment and 
telematics" section.





The under-inflation detection system 
does not replace the need for vigilance 
on the part of the driver.
This system does not avoid the need to 
check the tyre pressures (including the 
spare wheel) every month as well as 
before a long journey.
Driving with under-inflated tyres impairs 
road holding, extends braking distances 
and causes premature tyre wear, 
particularly under arduous conditions 
(high loading, high speed, long journey).

The inflation pressures defined for 
your vehicle can be found on the tyre 
pressure label.
For more information on the 
identification markings, refer to the 
corresponding section.
Tyre pressures should be checked 
when the tyres are "cold" (vehicle 
stopped for 1 hour or after a journey of 
less than 6 miles (10 km) at moderate 
Otherwise (when hot), add 0.3 bar to 
the pressures shown on the label.

Driving with under-inflated tyres 
increases fuel consumption.

Under-inflation detection

System which automatically checks the pressures of the tyres while driving.

The system monitors the pressures in the four 
tyres, once the vehicle is moving.
It compares the information given by the four 
wheel speed sensors with reference values, 
which must be reinitialised every time the 
tyre pressures are adjusted or a wheel 
The system triggers an alert as soon as it 
detects a drop in the inflation pressure of one 
or more tyres.




Under-inflation alert

This is given by fixed illumination of 
this warning lamp, accompanied by 
an audible signal and, depending on 
equipment, the display of a message.

F  Reduce speed immediately, avoid 

excessive steering movements and sudden 

F  Stop the vehicle as soon as it is safe to do 


The loss of pressure detected does not 
always cause visible bulging of the tyre. 
Do not satisfy yourself with just a visual 

Before reinitialising the system, ensure 
that the pressures of the four tyres are 
correct for the use of the vehicle and in 
line with the recommendations on the 
tyre pressure label.

The alert is maintained until the system 
is reinitialised.

F  In the event of a puncture, use the 

temporary puncture repair kit or the spare 
wheel (depending on equipment),

F  if you have a compressor, such as the one 

in the temporary puncture repair kit, check 
the pressures of the four tyres when cold,

F  if it is not possible to make this check 

immediately, drive carefully at reduced 


It is necessary to reinitialise the system every 
time one or more tyre pressures are adjusted, 
and after changing one or more wheels.

The under-inflation detection system 
does not give a warning if a pressure is 
incorrect at the time of reinitialisation.





F  With the ignition on and the 

vehicle stationary, press this 
button for about 3 seconds then 
release it, an audible signal 
confirms the reinitialisation.

Snow chains

The system does not have to be 
reinitialised after fitting or removing 
snow chains.

The flashing and then fixed illumination of the 
under-inflation warning lamp accompanied 
by illumination of the Service warning lamp 
indicates a fault with the system.

Before doing anything to the system, 
the pressures of the four tyres must be 
checked and the system reinitialised.

Operating fault

In this case, under-inflation monitoring of the 
tyres is no longer assured.
Have the system checked by a PEUGEOT 
dealer or a qualified workshop.

Reinitialisation of the system is done with the 
ignition on and the vehicle stationary.

F  Press the MENU button for 

access to the different menus.

F  Select the "Driving" menu.

F  Press "Under-inflation 


The new pressure settings registered 
are considered to be reference values 
by the system.

With touch screen

F  Confirm the instruction by pressing "Yes", 

an audible signal and a message confirm 
the reinitialisation.

Without touch screen

The under-inflation alert can only be 
relied on if the reinitialisation of the 
system has been done with the pressures 
in the four tyres correctly adjusted.




A set of the following Electronic Stability 

anti-lock braking system (ABS) and 
electronic brake force distribution (EBFD),

emergency braking assistance,

wheel anti-slip regulation (ASR) or traction 

dynamic stability control (DSC).

Electronic stability control (ESC)


Anti-lock braking system (ABS) 
and electronic brake force 
distribution (EBFD)

These systems improve the stability and 
manoeuvrability of your vehicle when braking 
and contribute towards improved control in 
corners, in particular on poor or slippery road 
The ABS prevents wheel lock in the event of 
emergency braking.
The electronic brake force distribution system 
manages the braking pressure wheel by wheel.

Emergency braking assistance

In an emergency, this system enables you to 
reach the optimum braking pressure more 
quickly and therefore reduce the stopping 
It is triggered in relation to the speed at which 
the brake pedal is pressed. This is felt by a 
reduction in the resistance of the pedal and an 
increase in the effectiveness of the braking.

Anti-slip regulation (ASR)

This system (also known as Traction Control) 
optimises traction in order to avoid wheel 
slip by acting on the brakes of the driving 
wheels and on the engine. It also improves 
the directional stability of the vehicle on 

Dynamic stability control  

If there is a difference between the path 
followed by the vehicle and that required by the 
driver, this system monitors each wheel and 
automatically acts on the brake of one or more 
wheels and on the engine to return the vehicle 
to the required path, within the limits of the laws 
of physics.






Anti-lock braking system (ABS) 
and electronic brake force 
distribution (EBFD)

In emergency braking, press 
very firmly without releasing the 

When changing wheels (tyres and rims), 
make sure that these are approved for 
your vehicle.
Normal operation of the ABS may make 
itself felt by slight vibrations of the brake 

When this warning lamp comes on, 
accompanied by an audible signal 
and a message, it indicates that 
there is a fault with the ABS, which 

could cause loss of control of the vehicle when 

When this warning lamp comes on, 
coupled with the STOP warning 
lamp, accompanied by an audible 
signal and a message, it indicates 

that there is a fault with the electronic brake 
force distribution (EBFD), which could cause 
loss of control of the vehicle when braking.
You must stop as soon as it is safe to do so.
In both cases, contact a PEUGEOT dealer or a 
qualified workshop.




Dynamic stability control (DSC) 
and anti-slip regulation (ASR)


These systems are activated automatically 
each time the vehicle is started.
As soon as they detect a problem of grip or 
trajectory, these systems act on the operation 
of the engine and brakes.

This is indicated by flashing of this 
warning lamp in the instrument panel.


In exceptional conditions (starting a vehicle 
which is bogged down, stuck in snow, on soft 
ground...), it may be advisable to deactivate 
the DSC system, so that the wheels can move 
freely and regain grip.

The DSC system offers exceptional 
safety in normal driving, but this should 
not encourage the driver to take extra 
risks or drive at high speed.
The correct operation of the system 
depends on observation of the 
manufacturer's recommendations 
regarding the wheels (tyres and rims), 
the braking components, the electronic 
components and the PEUGEOT 
assembly and operation procedures.
After an impact, have the system 
checked by a PEUGEOT dealer or a 
qualified workshop.

Operating fault

If this warning lamp comes on, 
accompanied by an audible signal 
and a message in the screen, this 
indicates a fault with the system.

Contact a PEUGEOT dealer or a qualified 
workshop to have the system checked.


But it is recommended that the system be 
reactivated as soon as possible.

F  Press the button or, depending 

on version, turn the knob to this 

The system is reactivated automatically each 
time the ignition is switched back on or from  
30 mph (50 km/h).

The indicator lamp in the button or the knob 
comes on: the DSC system no longer acts on 
the operation of the engine.

F  Press the button again to 

reactivate it manually.
