Principle of Operation
When you are going downhill, your vehicle speed may increase above the set speed. The system will not apply the brakes but a warning displays. Failure to follow this warning could result in serious personal injury or death.|
The system allows you to set a speed, to which your vehicle then becomes limited. The set speed becomes the effective maximum speed of your vehicle, but with the option to temporarily exceed this limit if required.
Using the System
You can intentionally exceed the set speed limit for a short period of time if required, for example when overtaking another vehicle.
The system is operated by adjustment controls mounted on the steering wheel.
Switching the System On and Off
Press LIM CNCL/OFF to set the limiter in standby mode. The information display prompts you to set a speed. Press LIM CNCL/OFF with the limiter in standby mode to switch the system off.
Setting the Speed Limit
- Press SET- with the limiter in standby mode to set the limiter to the current vehicle speed.
- Press RES+ or SET- to select your desired speed limit. The speed shows in the information display and is stored as the set speed. You can adjust the set speed in small or large increments. Press the button once to adjust the set speed in small increments. Press and hold the button to adjust the set speed in large increments.
- Press LIM CNCL/OFF to cancel the limiter and place it in standby mode. The information display confirms you have switched this off by showing the set speed as crossed out.
- Press RES+ to resume the limiter. The information display confirms you have switched this on by showing the set speed again.
Intentionally Exceeding the Set Speed Limit
Depress the accelerator fully to temporarily switch the system off. The system reactivates once your vehicle speed drops below the set speed.
If you accidently exceed the set speed, the set speed flashes in the information display and a tone sounds.
If you intentionally exceed the set speed, the set speed flashes in the information display.
