USING THE PARKING AID

  1. Parking aid switch.

  2. Parking aid sensor detection zones.

WARNING

Parking aids may not detect moving objects, such as children and animals, until they are dangerously close. Always use extreme caution when maneuvering and always use your mirrors.

CAUTION

Parking Distance Control (PDC) sensors may not detect some obstructions (e.g., narrow posts, small objects close to the ground, and some objects with dark non-reflective surfaces). Parking aids are for guidance only and are not intended to replace the driver’s visual checks for obstructions or objects when maneuvering.

The Parking aid system is automatically activated when Reverse (R) gear is selected. The Parking aid switch indicator will illuminate to inform the driver that the system is active. To switch the Parking aid system off, press the switch.

The Parking aid system will remain off until Reverse (R) gear is selected, or the system is manually switched back on again.

The Parking aid system assists the driver while maneuvering the vehicle in confined spaces. When active, object tracking along the front or rear of the vehicle will be displayed on the Touch screen.

When Reverse (R) gear is selected, both front and rear sensors will be active. When Drive (D) is selected, only the front sensors will be active.

NOTES

If the system does not detect an object likely to come into contact with the vehicle, it will not display any tracking information in the Touch screen.

When objects are detected, the Parking aid systems emit a warning tone which increases in frequency as the vehicle gets closer to an object. The tone becomes constant when the obstacle is within 12 inches (300 mm).

The Parking aid system operates up to a speed of 10 mph (16 km/h).

NOTES

The sensors should be kept clean to maintain accuracy and performance. See SENSORS AND CAMERAS.
