Hi Everybody,
I've just become a C3 owner and after driving 200 miles is that I'm pleasantly surprised at the fuel economy!
However, while looking the handbook to find out how the cruise control works I realised it doesn't match my car. I have been online and found PDF copies but these too don't match.
Could anybody point me in the right direction please?
Thanks in advance.

Hi

Official Citroen handbooks are here There is not one for a specific specification, but the manual covers all specs, even if yours does not support that particular function mentioned in the handbook pack.

Select the correct vehicle from the link I have above to find the right one.

Cruise controls are the same for the late model cars, which differs from the early model cars.

These are the instructions for the late model cars:


CRUISE CONTROL

System which automatically maintains the speed of the vehicle at the value programmed by the driver, without any action on the accelerator pedal.

The cruise control is switched on manually: it requires a minimum vehicle speed of 25 mph (40 km/h), as well as the engagement of:

- fourth gear on a manual gearbox,
- second gear on an automatic gearbox, in sequential mode,
- position D on an automatic gearbox.

The cruise control is switched off manually or by pressing the brake or clutch pedal or on triggering of the ESP system for safety reasons.

It is possible to exceed the programmed speed temporarily by pressing the accelerator pedal.

To return to the programmed speed,simply release the accelerator pedal.

Switching off the ignition cancels any programmed speed value.

The controls of this system are grouped together on stalk A

1. Cruise control mode selection thumb wheel.
2. Value decrease button.
3. Value increase button.
4. Cruise control off/resume button.

The programmed information is grouped together on the instrument panel display.

5. Cruise control off/resume indication.
6. Cruise control mode selection indication.
7. Programmed speed value.



Not being a tesla with autopilot, Citroen also have to give this warning to the driver:
The cruise control cannot, in any circumstances, replace the need to respect speed limits, nor can it replace the need for vigilance and responsibility on the part of the driver
