c) Oil change interval

Distance remaining until the next service (displayed in 

miles/kilometres  and  months),  then  when  the  service 

nears, several scenarios are possible:

–   distance/time  remaining  less  than 

900  miles 

(1,500 km) or one month: the message “Service due 

in” is displayed accompanied by the nearest term (dis-

tance or time);

–   distance/time remaining 

0 km/miles or service date 

reached: the message “Service required” is displayed 

accompanied by warning light 

©

.

The vehicle requires an oil change as soon as possible.

Service in

30000km /24 MONTHS

Service due in 100km

Service due in 10 days

NB: depending on the vehicle, the service interval varies according to the driving style (frequent driving at low speed, door-to-

door journeys, extensive use at idle speed, towing a trailer etc.). The distance remaining until the next oil change can therefore 

decrease more quickly in some cases than the actual distance travelled.
The oil change intervals are independent of the vehicle’s maintenance schedule: please refer to your vehicle’s Maintenance 

Service Booklet.
Resetting: to reset the oil change interval, press and hold one of the display reset buttons for approximately 10 seconds until 

the display shows the interval permanently.

is  sufficient,  the  directional  head-

lights will remain fixed;

–  If  the  lights  come  on  automatically

running  and  the  vehicle  stationary, 

the lights move to reinitialise them-

switching off the lights

There are two possibilities:

–  Manually, move ring 2 to position 0;

–  automatically,  the  lights  will  go  out 

when the engine is switched off, the 

driver’s door is opened or the vehicle 

is locked. In this case, the next time 

the engine is started the lights will be 

switched  back  on  according  to  the 

position of the ring 2.

Note: if the fog lights are lit, the lights 

are not switched off automatically.

“see-me-home lighting” 

function

Depending  on  the  vehicle,  this  func-

tion allows you to briefly switch on the 

dipped  beam  headlights  (to  provide 

light when opening a gate, etc.).
With the engine and lights off, and 

ring 2 in position 0, pull stalk 1 towards 

you: the dipped beam headlights come 

on  for  approximately  thirty  seconds. 

To increase this duration, you may pull 

the stalk up to four times (total time re-

stricted  to  two  minutes).  Depending 

on the vehicle, the message “See-me-

home _ _ _” accompanied by the light-

ing time is displayed on the instrument 

panel to confirm the action.
To switch off the lights before they go 

out automatically, turn ring 2 to any po-

sition, then return it to position 

0.

Directional headlights

Depending  on  the  vehicle,  with  the 

dipped beam headlights on and under 

certain  conditions  (speed,  steering 

wheel  angle,  forwards  gear  selected, 

etc.) when cornering, the dipped beam 

headlights move to light the inside of 

the bend.
Operating faults
Depending  on  the  vehicle,  when  the 

message “Check lighting” appears on 

the  instrument  panel  along  with  the 

©

 warning light, this indicates that 

there is a lighting fault.
