USING PARK ASSIST

WARNING

In the interest of safety, operate or adjust the system only when it is safe to do so. Driver distraction can lead to accidents, potentially causing serious injury or death.

WARNING

Park assist must not be used if a sensor is damaged, or the bumper is damaged sufficiently enough to affect a sensor mounting point. Failing to follow these guidelines may result in sensor miscalculation or false indications, this can lead to accidents, potentially causing serious injury or death.

WARNING

Park assist must not be used if a sensor is obstructed by items attached to the vehicle, e.g., bumper covers, a cycle rack, or stickers. Failing to follow these guidelines may result in sensor miscalculation or false indications, this can lead to accidents, potentially causing serious injury or death.

CAUTION

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

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:
NOTES

For park assist to search effectively for a space, the park assist system must maintain a distance of 1.6 ft to 4.9 ft (0.5 m to 1.5 m). The distance of 1.6 ft to 4.9 ft (0.5 m to 1.5 m) is between the vehicle and the row of parked vehicles or obstacles.

Select Parallel Parking or Perpendicular Parking.

As the vehicle is driven forward, the size of a potential parking space, on the front passenger's side, is assessed. To search for a space on the driver’s side, use the turn signals to signal a turn in that direction.

NOTES

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

NOTES

Park assist may determine that other vehicles are too close, on either side, to perform a parking maneuver. 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 maneuver manually.

The park assist sensors assess the curbs in the parking space so that the vehicle can be aligned against it. When the curb 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 curb, e.g., a post or trash can, it will affect vehicle positioning. The vehicle positioning is affected by being further away, or closer to the curb than normal. Occasionally, this may result in the curb being mounted.

When a suitable space is found, a short confirmation tone sounds 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 maneuver the vehicle from a perpendicular parking space. The driver is responsible and must not to use Parking Exit mode to exit a perpendicular parking space.

CAUTION

Do not perform a parking exit maneuver until instructions display in the instrument panel.

When the vehicle is parallel parked and the ignition is switched off, the parking aid memory is cleared. When the ignition is switched on again, the turn signals must be operated to indicate an exit intention. The operated turn signal notifies the park assist system 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.

NOTES

Sufficient space is required in-front and behind of the vehicle for Parking Exit mode to operate correctly.

All park assist features:
WARNING

Although the vehicle takes control during the parking or exiting maneuver, the driver must maintain full control of the accelerator and brake pedals throughout. If the maneuver is not as expected, take control of the steering and make necessary adjustments. Driver distraction can lead to accidents, potentially causing serious injury or death.

NOTES

When the vehicle’s speed exceeds 3 mph (5 km/h) during the maneuver, the park assist system displays a warning message. The message is displayed until the vehicle's speed decreases to less than 3 mph (5 km/h). When the vehicle's speed exceeds 4 mph (7 km/h), park assist deactivates.

NOTES

During any park assist maneuver, the parking aid system will remain active.

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

If a system fault is detected, a continuous tone sounds and the instrument panel displays a warning message. If all of the sensors are clean and the fault is not rectified after an ignition cycle, contact a retailer/authorized repairer.
