DRIVER CORRECTION DEVICES AND AIDS (3/5)
This system helps to limit wheelspin of
the drive wheels and to control the ve-
hicle when pulling away accelerating or
Using the wheel sensors, the system
measures and compares the speed of
the drive wheels at all times and slows
down their over-rotation. If a wheel is
starting to slip, the system brakes au-
tomatically until the drive supplied be-
comes compatible with the level of grip
under the wheel again.
The system also adjusts the engine
speed to the grip available under the
wheels, independently of the pressure
exerted on the accelerator pedal.Operating faults

ing fault the message “Check ESC” and

Disabling the traction control
If the vehicle is fitted with this function,
in some situations (driving on very wet
ground: snow, mud, etc. or driving with
snow chains fitted), the system may
reduce the engine output to limit wheel-
spin. If this is not required, it is possible
to deactivate the function by pressing
The message “Traction control off” is
displayed on the instrument panel to
inform you. The traction control system offers ad-
ditional safety. It is recommended that
you do not drive with the function di-
sabled. Correct this as soon as pos-
sible by pressing the switch
Note: the function is reactivated auto-
matically when the ignition is switched
on or when a speed of approximately
24 mph (40 km/h) is exceeded.

For your safety, please re-
spect the speed limit.
When they need to be re-
placed, only tyres of the
same make, size, type and profile
should be used on a single axle.
They must: either have a load ca-
pacity and speed rating at least
equal to those of the original
tyres, or conform to those recom-
mended by an authorised dealer.

In case of puncture
Depending on the vehicle, a tyre infla-
tion kit or emergency spare wheel is
provided (refer to the following pages).Special note
The Tyre Pressure Monitor function
does not check the emergency spare
wheel (the wheel replaced by the emer-
gency spare wheel disappears from the
instrument panel display).
Refer to the information on the “Tyre
pressure monitor” in Section 2.
If the emergency spare wheel has been stored for several years, have it \
checked by your Dealer to ensure that it is safe to use.

– Never fit more than one emergency spare wheel to the same vehicle.
– As the punctured wheel is wider than the emergency spare wheel, the vehi\

– Replace the emergency spare wheel as soon as possible with a wheel ident\
