PARKING FEATURES SAFETY

Make sure the following warnings and cautions have been read and fully understood before driving the vehicle.

Failure to use the parking system safely could result in damage to the vehicle, or an accident, leading to serious injury or death.

WARNING

The sensors for the parking system do not detect moving objects, such as children and animals, until the objects are dangerously close. The driver is responsible for driving with due care and attention during low speed manoeuvres.

WARNING

The parking feature is a driving aid only. The driver is responsible for driving with due care and attention during low speed manoeuvres.

WARNING

The driver must maintain full control of the accelerator and brake pedals throughout low speed manoeuvres.

WARNING

All sensors must be kept clean and free from debris or obstructions, e.g., leaves, mud, snow, ice, frost, or insects. Failure to keep the sensors clean may result in sensor miscalculation or false indications.

WARNING

The parking feature 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.

WARNING

The parking feature must not be used if a sensor is obstructed by items attached to the vehicle, e.g., bumper covers, a bicycle rack, or stickers. Failing to follow these guidelines may result in sensor miscalculations or false indications.

WARNING

Make sure the relevant safety warnings and cautions have been read and understood before operating the touchscreen. See TOUCHSCREEN SAFETY.

CAUTION

The parking feature sensors may also be externally influenced by noise generated from air brakes, emergency vehicles, motorbikes, pneumatic drills, and high wind. The driver is responsible for driving with due care and attention during low speed manoeuvres.

CAUTION

The sensors for the parking system may not detect some obstructions. For example, narrow posts or small objects close to the ground. Objects above sensor level may not be detected, e.g., when approaching a flatbed truck, the protruding part of the flatbed may not be detected. Additionally, the parking system operation may be limited, when manoeuvring the vehicle near wooden objects, e.g., a wooden post.

CAUTION

Do not aim a high pressure water jet directly at any of the sensors when washing the vehicle. Only use approved vehicle shampoo. Do not use abrasive materials, or hard or sharp objects, to clean the sensors. Failure to follow these guidelines may result in damage to the system or cause a system fault.

CAUTION

Particular care must be taken when using the parking feature if accessories are fitted to the front or rear of the vehicle. For example, a bicycle rack mounted in a position where it obstructs operation of the parking sensor(s). If the affected sensor(s) is obstructed, the sensor(s) only indicates the distance from the bumper to the bicycle rack. Any obstacle beyond the detected accessory may not be indicated on the touchscreen display.
