Peugeot 2008: Driving / Driving and manoeuvring aids - General recommendations

Peugeot 2008 2019-2021 Owner's Manual / Driving / Driving and manoeuvring aids - General recommendations

Peugeot 2008. Driving and manoeuvring aids - General recommendations Driving and manoeuvring aids cannot, in any circumstances, replace the need for vigilance on the part of the driver.

The driver must comply with the Highway Code, must remain in control of the vehicle in all circumstances and must be able to retake control of it at all times. The driver must adapt the speed to climactic conditions, traffic and the state of the road.

It is the driver's responsibility to constantly check the traffic, to assess the relative distances and speeds of other vehicles and to anticipate their movements before indicating and changing lane.

The systems cannot exceed the limits of the laws of physics.

Peugeot 2008. Driving and manoeuvring aids - General recommendations Driving aids

You should hold the steering wheel with both hands, always use the interior and exterior rear view mirrors, always keep the feet close to the pedals and take a break every two hours.

Peugeot 2008. Driving and manoeuvring aids - General recommendations Manoeuvring aids

The driver must always check the surroundings of the vehicle before and during the whole manoeuvre, in particular using the mirrors.

Peugeot 2008. Driving and manoeuvring aids - General recommendations Radar

The operation of the radar as well as the associated functions may be impaired through the accumulation of dirt (mud, frost, etc.), in certain difficult weather conditions (very heavy rain, snow) or if the bumper is damaged.

If the front bumper is to be repainted, contact a PEUGEOT dealer or a qualified workshop; certain types of paint could interfere with the operation of the radar.

Peugeot 2008. Driving and manoeuvring aids - General recommendations Driving aids camera

This camera and its associated functions may be impaired or not work if the windscreen area in front of the camera is dirty, misty, frosty, covered with snow, damaged or masked by a sticker.

On versions with camera alone, this message indicates to you that the camera is obstructed: "Driving aids camera: visibility limited, see user guide".

In humid and cold weather, demist the windscreen regularly.

Poor visibility (inadequate street lighting, heavy rain, thick fog, snowfall), dazzle (headlamps of an oncoming vehicle, low sun, reflections on a damp road, leaving a tunnel, alternating shade and light) can also impair detection performance.

In the event of a windscreen replacement, contact a PEUGEOT dealer or a qualified workshop to recalibrate the camera; otherwise, the operation of the associated driving aids may be disrupted

Peugeot 2008. Driving and manoeuvring aids - General recommendations Other cameras

The images from the camera(s) displayed on the touch screen or on the instrument panel may be distorted by the relief.

In the presence of areas in shade, or in conditions of bright sunlight or inadequate lighting, the image may be darkened and with lower contrast.

Obstacles may appear further away than they actually are.

Peugeot 2008. Driving and manoeuvring aids - General recommendations Sensors

The operation of the sensors as well as the associated functions may be disturbed by sound interference such as that emitted by noisy vehicles and machinery (e.g. lorries, pneumatic drills), by the accumulation of snow or dead leaves on the road or in the event of damaged bumpers and mirrors.

When reverse gear is engaged, an audible signal (long beep) indicates that the sensors may be dirty.

A front or rear impact to the vehicle can upset the sensors’ settings, which is not always detected by the system: distance measurements may be distorted.

The sensors do not systematically detect obstacles that are too low (pavements, studs) or too thin (trees, posts, wire fences).

Certain obstacles located in the sensors’ blind spots may not be detected or may no longer be detected during the manoeuvre.

Certain materials (fabrics) absorb sound waves: pedestrians may not be detected.

Peugeot 2008. Driving and manoeuvring aids - General recommendations Maintenance

Clean the bumpers and door mirrors and the field of vision of the cameras regularly.

When washing your vehicle at high pressure, direct the spray from at least 30  cm away from the radar, sensors and cameras.

Peugeot 2008. Driving and manoeuvring aids - General recommendations Mats

The use of mats not approved by PEUGEOT may interfere with the operation of the speed limiter or cruise control.

To avoid any risk of jamming the pedals:

Peugeot 2008. Driving and manoeuvring aids - General recommendations Units of speed

Ensure that the units of speed displayed on the instrument panel (mph or km/h) are those for the country you are driving in.

If this is not the case, when the vehicle is stationary, set the display to the required units of speed so that it complies with what is authorised locally.

In case of doubt, contact a PEUGEOT dealer or a qualified workshop.
