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

off and the ring 3 in position 0 or 

AUTO, pull the stalk 1 towards you: the 

dipped beam headlights come on for 

approximately 30 seconds. To increase 

this duration, you may pull the stalk up 

to four times (total time restricted to ap-

proximately two minutes). The mes-

sage “Follow-me home for _ _ _” along 

with the time the lights will be on for is 

displayed on the instrument panel to 

confirm this action. You can then lock 

your vehicle.
To switch off the lights before they go 

out automatically, turn ring 3 to any po-

sition, then return it to the AUTO posi-

tion .

EXTERIOR LIGHTING AND SIGNALS 

(6/6)

f

Rear fog lights

Turn centre ring 7 on the stalk 

until the symbol faces mark 2, then re-

lease it.
Operation of the fog lights depends on 

the exterior lighting selected, and an in-

dicator light will light up on the instru-

ment panel.
Do not forget to switch off the fog lights 

when they are no longer needed, to 

avoid inconveniencing other road 

users.

Switching off the lights

Turn the ring 7 again until the mark 2 

is opposite the symbol for the fog light 

that you wish to switch off. The corre-

sponding indicator light on the instru-

ment panel goes out.
The fog lights switch off when the exte-

rior lights are switched off.

Cornering lights

(depending on vehicle)
Whenever the dipped beam headlights 

are on and under certain conditions (at 

speed, the steering wheel at an angle, 

in forward gear, the indicator lights on, 

etc.), when taking a corner one of the 

front fog lights will come on to light the 

inside of the bend.

When driving in fog or snow, or 

when transporting objects which are 

higher than the roof, the headlights 

do not come on automatically.
Switching on the fog lights remains 

the responsibility of the driver: the 

indicator lights on the instrument 

panel inform you whether the fog 

lights are lit (indicator light on) or not 

(indicator light not on).

Efficiency of a wiper blade

Check the condition of the wiper 

blades. How long they last depends 

on you:
–  it must remain clean: clean the 

blade and the screen regularly 

with soapy water;

–  do not use it when the screen is 

dry;

–  free it from the screen when it has 

not been used for a long time.

In any event, replace them as soon 

as they begin to lose efficiency: ap-

proximately every year (refer to the 

information on “Wiper blades: re-

placement” in section 5).

Precautions for using the 

wipers

–  In freezing or snowy weather, 

clear the screen before starting 

the wipers (risk of motor over-

heating);

–  ensure that no objects are ob-

structing the travel of the blade.

1.88

Vehicle fitted with front 

windscreen wiper rain sensor

The rain sensor is located on the winds-

creen, in front of the interior rear-view 

mirror.

  A single sweep

A short push will trigger one sweep 

of the wipers.

  B stop

When activating automatic wiping 

or when increasing sensitivity, one 

sweep of the blades is performed.
Note: 

–  

the rain sensor is only intended 

as a driving aid. In the event of re-

duced visibility, the driver should 

manually activate the wipers;

–  

In foggy weather or during snow-

falls, wiping is not automatically 

triggered and remains under the 

driver’s control;

–  

in the event of temperatures 

below zero, automatic wiping is 

not activated when the vehicle 

is started. It is automatically acti-

vated as soon as the vehicle ex-

ceeds a certain speed (approxi-

mately 5 mph (8 km/h));

–  

do not activate automatic wiping 

in dry weather;

–  

fully de-ice the windscreen before 

activating automatic wiping.

  C  automatic wiper function

When this position is selected, the 

system detects water on the wind-

screen and triggers the wipers at a 

suitable wiping speed. It is possi-

ble to change the triggering thresh-

old and the time sweeps by turning 

ring 2:

–  F : minimum sensitivity

–  G : maximum sensitivity

The higher the sensitivity, the quic-

ker the wipers will react and the 

faster the wipe.

  D  slow continuous wiping

  E  fast continuous wiping

Positions  A and D are accessible 

with the ignition on. Positions C 

and E are accessible only with the 

engine running.

Operating fault
In the event of a malfunction of the 

automatic wiping, the wiper is set to 

intermittent wiping. Contact an au-

thorised dealer.

The operation of the rain sensor can 

be disturbed in the event of:

–  

damaged windscreen wipers; a 

film of water or traces left by a 

blade in the sensor’s detection 

zone may increase the response 

time of the automatic wipers, or 

increase the wiping frequency;

–  

a windscreen with any chip or 

crack level with the sensor, or a 

windscreen covered in dust, dirt, 

insects, ice, the use of washing 

wax and water-repellent chemi-

cals; the windscreen wiper will 

be less sensitive or may even not 

react at all.

Special note
When driving the vehicle
, the wiping 

speed slows down whenever the ve-

hicle stops. For example, fast wiping 

speed will slow to normal wiping speed. 

As soon as the vehicle moves off, 

wiping will return to the speed originally 

selected.

If stalk 1 is operated, it overrides and 

cancels the automatic function.

Precautions
–  

In the event of ice, check whether the 

blades are stuck to the windscreen 

before operating the wiping mecha-

nism. If you activate the wipers while 

the blades are stuck down with ice, 

you may risk damaging both the 

blade and the wiper motor.

–  

Do not activate the wipers on a dry 

screen. This will lead to the prema-

ture wear or damage to the blades.

1.90

Note:

After your intervention, to reposition the 

blades correctly, make sure the blades 

are resting on the windscreen, switch 

on the ignition and activate the wiper 

control.

Before any action involving 

the windscreen (washing 

the vehicle, de-icing, 

cleaning the windscreen, 

etc.) return stalk 1 to position B 

(stop).
Risk of injury and/or damage.

In the event of obstacles on the 

windscreen (dirt, snow, ice etc.), 

clean the windscreen (including the 

central area located behind the in-

terior rear view mirror) before oper-

ating the wipers (risk of motor over-

heating).
If an object is preventing a blade 

from moving, it may stop function-

ing. Remove the obstacle and react-

ivate the wiper using the wiper stalk.

WINDSCREEN WASH, WIPE 

(4/6)

Specific front wiper position 

(service position)

This position enables the blades to be 

lifted to remove them from the winds-

creen.
It may be useful to:

–  to clean the blades;

–  to release the blades from the winds-

creen in winter;

–  replace the blades (please refer to 

the information on “Wiper blades” in 

Section 5).

With the ignition on and the engine off, 

lower the windscreen wiper stalk fully 

(fast continuous wipe position). The 

wiper arms stop in a position away from 

the bonnet.
To return the blades to position, make 

sure they have been placed on the 

windscreen, then move the stalk to po-

sition B (stop) with the ignition on.
Before switching on the ignition, 

place the wipers on the windscreen. 

Otherwise, there may a risk of damage 

to the bonnet or the wipers when they 

are switched on.

p

Rear screen wash/wipe

With the ignition on, push and 

hold stalk 1, then release.
A longer action will trigger three sweeps 

of the wipers followed, a few seconds 

later, by a fourth, in addition to the wind-

screen washer.

In the event of obstacles present on the 

rear window (dirt, snow, etc.), the wiper 

will try to sweep away all the obstacles. 

If an obstacle prevents the blade from 

moving, it can be stopped. Remove the 

obstacle, wait for around 30 seconds 

and reactivate the wiper using the wiper 

stalk.

Precautions
–  

In the event of ice, check that the 

blades are not stuck to the wind-

screen before operating the wipers. 

If you activate the wiper while the 

blade is blocked by ice, you risk 

damaging both the blade and the 

wiping motor.

–  

Do not operate the wipers on a dry 

screen. This will lead to the prema-

ture wear or damage to the blades.

FUEL TANK 

(2/3)

Filling with fuel

With the ignition off, insert the nozzle 

and insert it fully before turning it on to 

fill the fuel tank (risk of splashing).
Keep the nozzle in this position through-

out the entire filling operation.

When the pump cuts out automatically 

at the end of the filling procedure, a 

maximum of two further filling attempts 

may be made, as there must be suffi-

cient space in the fuel tank to allow for 

expansion.

Make sure that no water enters the fuel 

tank during filling. The cover A and its 

surround must remain clean.

Petrol versions

Using leaded petrol will damage the 

antipollution system and may lead to a 

loss of warranty.

To ensure that the fuel tank is not filled 

with leaded petrol, the fuel tank filler 

neck consists of a restrictor fitted with 

a safety system which only allows 

a nozzle for unleaded petrol to be 

used (at the pump).

Vehicle fitted with the Stop and 

Start function
To fill up with fuel, the engine must 

be stopped (and not on standby): 

stop the engine (Please See 

“Starting, stopping the engine” in 

Section 2).

Fuel filler cap: this is spe-

cific.
If you have to replace it, 

make sure it is identical 

to the original cap. Contact an ap-

proved Dealer.

Never place the cap near a source 

of heat or flame.
Do not wash the filler area with a 

high-pressure washer.
