TRAILER CALIBRATION

WARNING

Make sure the relevant safety warnings and cautions have been read and understood before towing a trailer. See TOWING SAFETY.

The tow assist features do not operate until a trailer profile is created, and the corresponding trailer is connected and calibrated. A trailer profile must be created before the trailer is calibrated.

NOTES

The trailer does not need to be connected to the vehicle to create a profile. The trailer must be connected to the vehicle in order to be calibrated.

To create a trailer profile:

  1. Touch the apps icon on the driver side bar. See TOUCHSCREEN HOME MENU.

  2. Select TOWING & TRAILERS.

  3. Select +.

  4. Select the trailer type from the available options.

  5. Enter the trailer dimensions.

Follow the on-screen instructions to calibrate the trailer, if it is already connected.

NOTES

Create two trailer profiles for open trailers for greater system accuracy. For example, create one profile with the trailer loaded with a boat, vehicle, etc., and one profile with the trailer unloaded.

CAUTION

The trailer calibration process may not perform accurately in low ambient light levels. Always attempt to calibrate a trailer in good ambient light levels. Failure to accurately carry out the calibration process may result in damage to the vehicle or trailer.

The tow assist icon displays on the touchscreen when a trailer is connected. Select the appropriate trailer profile.

If the trailer has yet to be calibrated:

  1. Touch the tow assist icon.

  2. Select the appropriate trailer profile.

  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to calibrate the trailer.
