Designed to be a supplementary park aid, this system may not work in all conditions. This system cannot replace the driver’s attention and judgment. The driver is responsible for avoiding hazards and maintaining a safe distance and speed, even when the system is in use.

Note:  The driver is always responsible for controlling the vehicle, supervising the system and intervening if required.
The system detects an available parallel parking space and automatically steers your vehicle into the space (hands-free) while you control the accelerator, gearshift and brakes. The system visually and audibly instructs you to park your vehicle.
The system may not function correctly if something passes between the front bumper and the parking space (a pedestrian or cyclist) or if the edge of the neighboring parked vehicle is high off the ground (for example, a bus, tow truck or flatbed truck).
Note:  The blindspot information system does not detect traffic alongside or behind your vehicle during a park assist maneuver.
Note:  The sensors may not detect objects in heavy rain or other conditions that cause disruptive reflections.
Note:  The sensors may not detect objects with surfaces that absorb ultrasonic waves or cause ultrasonic interference (motorcycle exhaust, truck air brakes or horns).
Do not use the system if:
  • You have attached a foreign object (bike rack or trailer) to the front or rear of your vehicle or attached close to the sensors.
  • You have attached an overhanging object (surfboard) to the roof.
  • The front bumper or side sensors are damaged or obstructed by a foreign object (front bumper cover).
  • A mini-spare tire is in use.
Using Active Park Assist
Missing Image  Press the button located on the center console near the gearshift lever or the right side of the center stack.
The touchscreen displays a message and a corresponding graphic to indicate it is searching for a parking space. Use the direction indicator to indicate which side of your vehicle you want the system to search.
Note:  If the direction indicator is not on, the system automatically searches on your vehicle's passenger side.
Missing Image
When the system finds a suitable space, the touchscreen displays a message and a tone sounds. Slow down, continue moving forward and stop when another tone sounds and a message displays on the touchscreen (at approximately position A), then follow the instructions on the touchscreen.
Note:  You must observe that the selected space remains clear of obstructions at all times in the maneuver.
Note:  Active park assist may not detect vehicles with overhanging loads (a bus or a truck), street furniture and other items. You must make sure the selected space is suitable for parking.
Note:  You should drive your vehicle within 4.9 ft (1.5 m) to the other vehicles while passing a parking space.
Note:  The system always offers the last detected parking space (for example, if the vehicle detects multiple spaces while you are driving, it offers the last one).
Note:  If driven above approximately 22 mph (35 km/h), the touchscreen shows a message to alert you to reduce your vehicle speed.
Automatic Steering into Parking Space
Note:  If your vehicle speed exceeds 6 mph (9 km/h), the system switches off and you need to take full control of your vehicle.
When you shift the transmission into reverse (R), with your hands off the wheel (and nothing obstructing its movement), your vehicle steers itself into the space. Indicated by tones, instructions to move your vehicle back and forth in the space, display on the touchscreen.
Missing Image
When you think your vehicle has enough space in front and behind it, or you hear a solid tone from the parking aid (accompanied by a touchscreen display message and a chime), bring your vehicle to a complete stop.
When automatic steering is finished, the touch screen displays a message and a tone sounds, indicating that the active park assist process is done. The driver is responsible for checking the parking job and making any necessary corrections before putting the transmission in park (P).
Deactivating the Park Assist Feature
Manually deactivate the system by:
  • Pressing the active park assist button.
  • Grabbing the steering wheel.
  • Driving above approximately 50 mph (80 km/h) for 10 seconds during an active park search.
  • Driving above 6 mph (9 km/h) during automatic steering.
  • Turning off the traction control system.
Certain vehicle conditions can also deactivate the system, such as:
  • Traction control has activated on a slippery or loose surface.
  • There is an anti-lock brake system activation or failure.
  • Something touches the steering wheel.
If a problem occurs with the system, a warning message is displayed, followed by a tone. Occasional system messages may occur in normal operation. For recurring or frequent system faults, contact an authorized dealer to have your vehicle serviced.
Troubleshooting the System

The system does not look for a space 
The traction control system may be off 
The transmission is in Reverse ( R); your vehicle must be moving forward to detect a parking space 

The system does not offer a particular space 
Something may be contacting the front bumper or side sensors 
There is not enough room on both sides of your vehicle in order to park 
There is not enough space for the parking maneuver on the opposite side of the parking space 
The parking space is farther than 4.9 ft (1.5 m) or closer than 15.7 in (.4 m) away. 
The transmission is in Reverse ( R); your vehicle must be moving forward to detect a parking space 
Your vehicle is going faster than 22 mph (35 km/h) 

The system does not position the vehicle where I want in the space 
Your vehicle is rolling in the opposite direction of the transmission (rolling forward when Reverse [R] is selected) 
An irregular curb along the parking space prevents the system from aligning your vehicle properly 
Vehicles or objects bordering the space may not be positioned correctly 
You pulled your vehicle too far past the parking space. The system performs best when you drive the same distance past the parking space 
The tires may not be installed or maintained correctly (not inflated correctly, improper size, or of different sizes) 
A repair or alteration has changed detection capabilities 
A parked vehicle has a high attachment (salt sprayer, snowplow, moving truck bed, etc.) 
The parking space length or position of parked objects changed after your vehicle passed 
The temperature around your vehicle changes quickly (driving from a heated garage into the cold, or after leaving a car wash)
