  2. Limit speed activation, storage and increase switch (+).

Switching on

Renault Clio. Switching on


Press the side switch 1 . The
indicator light 6 comes on, lit orange, and the message “SPEED LIMITER” appears on the instrument panel, accompanied by dashes to indicate that the speed limiter function is activated and waiting to store a limited speed.

To store the current speed, press switch 2 (+): the limit speed will replace the dashes.

The minimum stored speed is 20 mph (30 km/h).

Driving

Renault Clio. Driving


When a limited speed has been stored and this speed is not reached, driving is similar to driving a vehicle without the speed limiter function.

Once you have reached the stored speed, no effort on the accelerator pedal will allow you to exceed the programmed speed except in an emergency (refer to information on “Exceeding the limit speed”).

Varying the limit speed

The limit speed may be changed by repeatedly pressing:

The speed limiter function is in no way linked to the braking system.

Exceeding the limit speed

It is possible to exceed the limit speed at any time. To do this: press the accelerator pedal firmly and fully (beyond the resistance point).

While the speed is being exceeded, the programmed speed displayed on the instrument panel flashes.

Then, release the accelerator: the speed limiter function will return as soon as you reach a speed lower than the stored speed.

Limited speed cannot be maintained

If driving up or down a steep gradient, the system is unable to maintain the limit speed: the stored speed will flash on the instrument panel information display to inform you of this situation

Putting the function on standby

The speed limiter function is suspended when you press switch 5 (O). In this case, the speed limit remains stored and the message “MEMORISED” accompanied by this speed appears on the instrument panel.

Recalling the limit speed

If a speed has been saved, it can be recalled by pressing switch 4 ((R)).

When the speed limiter is put on standby, pressing switch 2 (+) reactivates the function without taking into account the stored speed: it is the speed at which the vehicle is moving that is taken into account.

Switching off the function

The speed limiter function is deactivated if you press switch 1: in this case a speed is no longer stored. The orange instrument panel warning light goes out, confirming that the
function is stopped.
