Peugeot 2008: Safety / Electronic stability control (ESC)

Peugeot 2008 2019-2022 Owner's Manual / Safety / Electronic stability control (ESC)

The electronic stability control programme includes the following systems:

  • Anti-lock braking system (ABS) and Electronic brake force distribution (EBFD).
  • Emergency braking assistance (EBA).
  • Anti-slip regulation (ASR).
  • Dynamic stability control (DSC).
  • Trailer stability assist (TSA).

Anti-lock braking system (ABS) and Electronic brake force distribution (EBFD)

These systems enhance the vehicle’s stability and handling during braking, and enable greater control while cornering, particularly on poor or slippery road surfaces.

ABS prevents wheel locking in the event of emergency braking.

EBFD manages the braking pressure wheel by wheel.

Peugeot 2008. Electronic stability control (ESC) This warning lamp comes on fixed in the event of an ABS malfunction.

The vehicle retains conventional braking. Drive carefully at a moderate speed.

Contact a PEUGEOT dealer or a qualified workshop as soon as possible.

Peugeot 2008. Electronic stability control (ESC) This warning lamp, when lit together with the STOP and ABS warning lamps, accompanied by a message and an audible signal, indicates an EBFD malfunction.

You must stop as soon as it is safe to do so.

Contact a PEUGEOT dealer or a qualified workshop.

Peugeot 2008. Electronic stability control (ESC) The normal operation of the ABS may result in slight vibrations in the brake pedal.

Peugeot 2008. Electronic stability control (ESC) When braking in an emergency, press very firmly and maintain this pressure.

Peugeot 2008. Electronic stability control (ESC) When changing wheels (tyres and rims), ensure that these are approved for your vehicle.

Peugeot 2008. Electronic stability control (ESC) After an impact, have these systems checked by a PEUGEOT dealer or a qualified workshop.

Emergency braking assistance (EBA)

In an emergency, this system enables you to reach the optimum braking pressure more quickly and therefore reduce the stopping distance.

It is triggered in relation to the speed at which the brake pedal is pressed. This is felt by a reduction in the resistance of the pedal and an increase in braking efficiency.

Anti-slip regulation (ASR) / Dynamic stability control (DSC)

Anti-slip regulation optimises traction using engine braking and by applying the brakes on the driving wheels to avoid wheel spinning. It also enhances the vehicle's directional stability while accelerating.

If there is a difference between the vehicle’s trajectory and the path desired by the driver, the dynamic stability control system automatically uses engine braking and the brakes on one or more wheels to return the vehicle to the desired path, within the limits of the laws of physics.

These systems are activated automatically every time the vehicle is started.

They come into operation in the event of a grip or trajectory problem.

Peugeot 2008. Electronic stability control (ESC) This warning lamp on the instrument panel flashes to indicate that they are operating.

Deactivation / Reactivation

In exceptional conditions (starting a vehicle stuck in mud, immobilised in snow, on soft ground, etc.), it may be useful to deactivate the ASR system to freely spin the wheels and regain traction.

Reactivate the system as soon as the level of grip permits.

Peugeot 2008. Electronic stability control (ESC) It is set via the Driving  / Vehicle touch screen menu.

Peugeot 2008. Electronic stability control (ESC) Deactivation is confirmed by the illumination of this indicator lamp in the instrument panel and the display of a message.

The ASR system is reactivated automatically every time the ignition is switched back on or from 31 mph (50  km/h).

Reactivation is manual below 31 mph (50 km/h).

Malfunction

Peugeot 2008. Electronic stability control (ESC) In the event of a system malfunction, this warning lamp comes on, accompanied by an onscreen message and audible signal.

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

Peugeot 2008. Electronic stability control (ESC) ASR / DSC

These systems enhance safety during normal driving, but should not encourage the driver to take extra risks or drive at high speed.

It is in conditions of reduced grip (rain, snow, ice) that the risk of loss of grip increases.

It is therefore important for your safety to keep these systems activated in all conditions, and particularly in difficult conditions.

Correct operation of these systems depends on compliance with the manufacturer's recommendations relating to the wheels (tyres and rims), braking and electronic components, as well as the assembly and repair procedures used by PEUGEOT dealers.

The use of snow tyres is recommended, to ensure that these systems remain effective in winter conditions. All four wheels must be fitted with tyres approved for the vehicle.

Trailer stability assist (TSA)

When towing, this system reduces the risk of the vehicle or trailer snaking.

Operation

The system is activated automatically when the ignition is switched on.

The electronic stability control system (ESC) must not have any faults.

Between 37 and 99 mph (60 and 160  km/h), if the system detects oscillations (snaking) in the movement of the trailer, it acts on the brakes to stabilise the trailer and, if necessary, reduces engine power to slow down the vehicle.

Peugeot 2008. Electronic stability control (ESC) This warning lamp flashes in the instrument panel and the brake lamps light up to draw attention to this corrective action.

For information on towed loads and masses, refer to the Technical data section or your vehicle’s registration certificate

To ensure complete safety while driving with a Towing device, refer to the corresponding section.

Malfunction

Peugeot 2008. Electronic stability control (ESC) If a fault occurs, this warning lamp comes on in the instrument panel, accompanied by a message and an audible signal.

If you wish to continue towing a trailer, reduce your speed and drive carefully!

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

Peugeot 2008. Electronic stability control (ESC) The trailer stability assist system offers enhanced safety in normal driving, provided that the recommendations on towing a trailer are observed. It should not encourage the driver to take risks, such as towing a trailer in adverse operating conditions (overloading, failure to observe the trailer nose weight, worn or under-inflated tyres, faulty braking system, etc.), or to drive at excessive speeds.

In certain cases, the system may not detect trailer snaking, particularly with a light trailer.

When driving on slippery or poor surfaces, the system may not be able to prevent sudden trailer snaking.
