Make sure the relevant safety warnings have been read and understood before driving the vehicle. See SPEED LIMITER SAFETY.

The speed limiter controls are located on the right side of the steering wheel:

  1. Speed control switch and RES button:

    Move the switch upward to select SET+.

    Move the switch downward to select SET-.

    Press the button to select RES.

  2. CAN cancel button.

  3. LIM button.

Press the LIM button (3) on the steering wheel controls to toggle between speed limiter and cruise control. The instrument panel displays the information lamp for the selected system. See SPEED LIMITER (GREEN) and CRUISE CONTROL (GREEN).

The speed limiter does not operate until activated.

NOTES

The speed limiter function is not available in some markets.

Move the speed control switch (1) upward to the SET+ position, and release, to activate the speed limiter. The vehicle's speed is limited to the speed it was travelling at when the switch was moved. If the vehicle is stationary when the speed control switch is moved, the system sets the speed limit to 16 km/h (10 mph).

The LIM icon on the steering wheel controls illuminates to confirm that the system is operational.

Move the speed control switch upward to the SET+ position to increase the vehicle’s speed limit:

  • A single movement of the switch increases the vehicle’s speed limit by 2 km/h (1 mph).

  • Hold the speed control switch in the SET+ position to increase the vehicle’s speed limit by 10 km/h (5 mph).

Move speed control switch (1) downward to the SET- position to reduce the vehicle’s speed limit.

  • A single movement of the switch reduces the vehicle’s speed limit by 2 km/h (1 mph).

  • Hold the speed control switch in the SET- position to reduce the vehicle’s speed limit by 10 km/h (5 mph).

Press the CAN button (2) to suspend speed limiter operation.

To reactivate the speed limiter:

  • Press the RES button (1) to activate the speed limiter at the speed set previously.

  • Move the speed control switch upward to the SET+ position, and release, to activate the speed limiter operation at the vehicle’s current speed.

The speed limiter's set speed can be overridden if a higher level of acceleration is required. Fully press the accelerator pedal to accelerate past the speed limiter's set speed. When the vehicle's speed drops below the speed limiter's set speed, any speed limitations are reapplied.
