Refer to the General recommendations on the use of driving and manoeuvring aids.

Peugeot 2008. Active Blind Spot Monitoring System

This system includes sensors, placed on the sides of the bumpers, and warns the driver of the potentially dangerous presence of another vehicle (car, truck, motorcycle) in the blind spot areas of their vehicle (areas hidden  from  the driver's field of vision).

Peugeot 2008. Active Blind Spot Monitoring System

The warning is given by a fixed warning lamp that appears in the door mirror on the side in question:

  • immediately, when being overtaken;
  • after a delay of about one second, when overtaking a vehicle slowly.

In addition to this alert, a correction of trajectory will be felt if you attempt to cross a line with the direction indicator activated, to help you avoid a collision.

Activation / Deactivation

Peugeot 2008. Active Blind Spot Monitoring System It is set via the Driving  / Vehicle touch screen menu.

When starting the vehicle, the warning lamp comes on in each mirror to indicate that the system is activated.

The state of the system stays in the memory when switching off the ignition.

  • When you overtake a vehicle with a speed difference of less than 6  mph (10  km/h).

Malfunction

Peugeot 2008. Active Blind Spot Monitoring System If the event of a malfunction, this warning lamp comes on in the instrument panel, accompanied by the display of a message.

Contact a PEUGEOT dealer or a qualified workshop to have the system checked.

Peugeot 2008. Active Blind Spot Monitoring System The system may suffer temporary interference in certain weather conditions (rain, hail, etc.).

In particular, driving on a wet surface or moving from a dry area to a wet area can cause false alerts (for example, the presence of a fog of water droplets in the blind spot angle is interpreted as a vehicle).

In bad or wintry weather, ensure that the sensors are not covered by mud, ice or snow.

Take care not to cover the warning zone in the door mirrors, or the detection zones on the front and rear bumpers with adhesive labels or other objects; they may hamper correct operation of the system.

    Towing device

    Load distribution

    Distribute the load in the trailer so that the heaviest items are as close as possible to the axle, and the nose weight approaches the maximum permitted without exceeding it.

    Air density decreases with altitude, thus reducing engine performance. The maximum towable load must be reduced by 10% per 1,000  metres of altitude.

    Peugeot 2008. Towing device Use genuine towing devices and their wiring harnesses approved by PEUGEOT. We recommend having them fitted by a PEUGEOT dealer or a qualified workshop.
