SPEED LIMITER

WARNING

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-hand side of the steering wheel:

  1. Speed control rocker switch. Roll the rocker switch upwards to select SET+. Roll the rocker switch downwards to select SET-. Push the speed control rocker switch inwards to select RES.

  2. CAN 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.

To activate the speed limiter, roll the rocker switch (1) upwards to the SET+ position. The vehicle's speed is now limited to the speed it was travelling at when the switch was pressed. If the vehicle is stationary when SET+ is selected, the system sets the speed limit to 16 km/h (10 mph).

Roll the rocker switch (1) upwards and hold in the SET+ position to increase the speed limiter's set speed in 10 km/h (or 5 mph) steps. Roll the rocker switch (1) briefly upwards to the SET+ position to increase the speed limiter's set speed by 2 km/h (1 mph).

Roll and hold the rocker switch (1) downwards to the SET- position to reduce the speed limiter's set speed in 10 km/h (or 5 mph) steps. Roll the rocker switch (1) briefly down to the SET- position to lower the speed limiter's set speed by 2 km/h (1 mph).

Push the CAN button (2) to suspend speed limiter operation. Select either the RES or the SET+ positions to resume speed limiter operation.

NOTES

In speed limiter mode, pushing the rocker inwards to the RES position will activate the system at the previously used set speed. In adaptive speed limiter mode, pushing the rocker inwards to the RES position will set the speed limiter to the traffic sign recognition system's detected speed limit.

Rolling the rocker (1) upwards to the SET+ position limits the vehicle's speed to the speed it is travelling at when the switch is pressed.

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.
