USING PARK ASSIST

WARNING

In the interest of safety, operate or adjust the system only when it is safe to do so.

  • CAUTION

    Park assist must not be used if a temporary spare wheel is in use.

    CAUTION

    Park assist must not be used if a sensor is damaged, or the bumper is damaged sufficiently enough to affect a sensor mounting point.

    CAUTION

    Park assist must not be used if a sensor is obstructed by items attached to the vehicle, e.g., bumper covers, a bicycle rack, or stickers.

    CAUTION

    Park assist must not be used if the vehicle is being used to transport a load that extends beyond the vehicle’s perimeter.

For assistance when parking:

Select Parallel Parking or Perpendicular Parking.

As the vehicle is driven forward, the size of a potential parking space, on the side opposite the driver, is assessed. To search for a space on the driver’s side, signal a turn in that direction, using the direction indicators.

NOTES

For park assist to search effectively for space, the park assist must maintain a distance of 0.5 m to 1.5 m. The distance of 0.5 m to 1.5 m is between the vehicle and the row of parked vehicles or obstacles.

NOTES

The park assist auto-searching feature becomes active when the vehicle's speed is less than 30 km/h (18 mph). When park assist is selected, a space may already have been detected by the auto-searching feature. An appropriate message is displayed in the instrument panel.

NOTES

Park assist may determine that other vehicles are too close, on either side, to perform a parking manoeuvre. A detected space can be rejected, even if it is large enough for the vehicle. The driver retains the option to switch park assist off and attempt the manoeuvre manually.

The park assist sensors assess the kerb in the parking spaces so that the vehicle can be aligned against it. When the kerb shape is irregular, or not detectable, vehicles either side of the parking space are used for aligning the vehicle. When there is a tall object alongside the kerb, e.g., a post or bin, it will affect vehicle positioning. Resulting in the vehicle positioning being further away, or closer to the kerb than normal. Occasionally, this may result in the kerb being mounted.

When a suitable space is found, a short confirmation tone is given and a message is displayed in the instrument panel.

For assistance when exiting a parallel parking space:
CAUTION

The Parking Exit mode operates only when the vehicle has been parallel parked. Parking Exit does not manoeuvre the vehicle from a Perpendicular Parking space. The responsibility remains the driver, not to use Parking Exit mode on Perpendicular Parking.

CAUTION

Do not perform a Parking Exit manoeuvre until the message DRIVE FORWARD WITH CARE is displayed in the instrument panel.

When the vehicle is parallel parked and the ignition is subsequently switched off, the parking assist memory is cleared. When the ignition is switched on again, the direction indicators must be operated to indicate an exit intention. The operated direction indicators notify the park assist feature on which side the driver intends to leave the parking space.

Select Parking Exit.

For the Parking Exit mode to operate correctly, the vehicle must be parked in a space where other vehicles or objects are either:

  • Parked in front of the vehicle.

  • Parked in front and behind the vehicle.

All park assist features:
CAUTION

Although the vehicle takes control during the parking or exiting manoeuvre, the driver must maintain full control of the accelerator and brake pedals throughout. When the manoeuvre is not as expected, take control of the steering and make necessary adjustments.

NOTES

When the vehicle’s speed exceeds 5 km/h (3 mph) during the manoeuvre, park assist displays an overspeed message until the vehicle's speed decreases to less than 5 km/h (3 mph). When the vehicle's speed exceeds 7 km/h (4 mph), park assist deactivates.

For all three park assist modes, follow the instructions in the instrument panel until the parking or exiting manoeuvre is complete.

When a system fault is detected, a continuous tone sounds and a message is displayed in the instrument panel. Consult a retailer/authorised repairer.
