WARNING:  You must remain in your vehicle when the system turns on. At all times, you are responsible for controlling your vehicle, supervising the system and intervening, if required. Failure to take care may result in the loss of control of your vehicle, serious personal injury or death.
  WARNING:  The sensors may not detect objects in heavy rain or other conditions that cause interference.
  WARNING:  Active park assist does not apply the brakes under any circumstances.
  WARNING:  You are responsible for controlling your vehicle at all times. The system is designed to be an aid and does not relieve you of your responsibility to drive with due care and attention. Failure to follow this instruction could result in the loss of control of your vehicle, personal injury or death.

Active park assist is a multi-step process and may require you to shift the transmission multiple times. Follow the onscreen instructions until the parking maneuver is complete.
If you are uncomfortable with the proximity to any vehicle or object, you may choose to override the system by grabbing the steering wheel, or by taking full control of your vehicle after pressing the active park assist button.
Keep your hands, hair, clothing and any loose items clear of the steering wheel when using active park assist.
The sensors are on the front and rear bumpers.
Note:  Keep the sensors free from snow, ice and large accumulations of dirt.
Note:  Do not cover up the sensors.
Note:  Do not clean the sensors with sharp objects.
Note:  The sensors may not detect objects with surfaces that absorb ultrasonic waves. The sensors may falsely detect objects due to ultrasonic interference caused by motorcycle exhausts, truck air brakes or horns, for example.
Note:  If you change any tires, the system must recalibrate and may not correctly operate for a short time.
The system may not correctly operate in any of the following conditions:
  • You use a spare tire or a tire that is significantly worn more than the other tires.
  • One or more tires are incorrectly inflated.
  • You try to park on a tight curve.
  • Something passes between the front bumper and the parking space. For example, a pedestrian or cyclist.
  • The edge of the neighboring parked vehicle is high off the ground. For example, a bus, tow truck or flatbed truck.
  • The weather conditions are poor.For example, during heavy rain, snow, fog, high humidity and high temperatures.
Do not use the system if:
  • You have attached an add-on accessory close to the sensors on the front or rear of your vehicle. For example, a bike rack or trailer.
  • You have attached an overhanging object to the roof. For example, a surfboard.
  • The front bumper, rear bumper or the side sensors are damaged.
  • The correct tire size is not in use on your vehicle. For example, a mini-spare tire.
Using Active Park Assist
Selecting an Active Park Assist Mode
Missing Image  Press the button once to activate parallel parking. Press the button a second time to activate perpendicular parking. If you press the button again the system switches off.
If your vehicle is parked and after you switch the ignition on, you can use the information display to toggle through the modes. Press the button to switch the system on and open the system menu in the information display.
Note:  If your vehicle is parked, the default mode is parallel park out assist. However, if you did not use active park assist to parallel park your vehicle, use the information display to select park out assist.
Note:  You can repeatedly press the active park assist button to toggle through the modes only after moving your vehicle approximately 33 ft (10 m).
To toggle through the modes, use the buttons on the information display to select the following:
  • Parallel parking.
  • Perpendicular parking.
  • Parallel park out assist.
  • Switch the system off.
Note:  There is no time limit for toggling through the modes.
Parallel Parking
The system detects available parallel parking spaces and steers your vehicle into the space. You control the accelerator, gearshift and brakes. The system visually and audibly guides you into a parallel parking space.
Missing Image  Press the button once to search for a parking space.
Note:  You can also switch the system on after you have already driven partially or completely past a parking space. Press the active park assist button and the system informs you if you have recently passed a suitable parking space.
When the vehicle speed is less than 22 mph (35 km/h), the system scans both sides of your vehicle for an available parking space. A message and a graphic appear in the information display to indicate the system is searching for a parking space. Use the direction indicator lever to search for a parking space on the driver or passenger side of your vehicle.
Note:  The system scans both sides of your vehicle and offers parking spaces one side at a time if you do not use the direction indicator.
Note:  The system defaults to the passenger side if you do not use the direction indicator.
Missing Image
Drive your vehicle approximately 3 ft (1 m) and parallel to the other parked vehicles when searching for a parking space.
Note:  If you drive your vehicle less than 2 ft (.5 m) or greater than 5 ft (1.5 m) away from other parked vehicles, the system may not be able to detect an available parking space.
When the system detects a suitable space, a message displays and a tone sounds. Stop your vehicle and follow the onscreen instructions. If your vehicle is moving very slowly, you may have to move forward a short distance before the system is ready to park.
Note:  You must observe that the space the system selects remains clear of obstructions at all times during the maneuver.
Note:  The system always offers the last parking space it detects. For example, if your vehicle detects multiple spaces when you are driving, it offers the last one.
Note:  If the vehicle speed is greater than approximately 22 mph (35 km/h), the system shows a message to instruct you to reduce the vehicle speed.
Automatically Steering into a Parallel Parking Space
When you shift into reverse (R), with your hands off the steering wheel and nothing obstructing its movement, your vehicle steers itself into the space. The system displays instructions to move your vehicle backward and forward in the space.
Note:  If the vehicle speed exceeds approximately 6 mph (9 km/h), you interrupt the maneuver, or the system switches off, you must take full control of your vehicle.
Note:  If the system detects an object is very close to your vehicle and it may be unsafe to continue the maneuver, it may instruct you to stop your vehicle. The system may not provide any further instruction. Steering assistance continues to operate but you must decide if it is safe to continue the maneuver.

Troubleshooting

Symptom   Possible Cause  
The system does not search for a parking space.   You may have switched the traction control off.  
The transmission is in reverse (R). Your vehicle must be moving forward to be able to detect a parking space.  
The system does not offer a parking space.   The sensors may be blocked. For example, snow, ice or dirt buildup. Blocked sensors can affect how the system functions.  
There is not enough room in the parking space for your vehicle to safely park.  
There is not enough space for the parking maneuver on the opposite side of the parking space.  
The parking space is more than 5 ft (1.5 m) or less than 2 ft (.5 m) away.  
The vehicle speed is greater than 22 mph (35 km/h) for parallel parking or greater than 19 mph (30 km/h) for perpendicular parking.  
You recently disconnected or replaced the battery. After you reconnect the battery you must drive your vehicle on a straight road for a short period of time.  
The system does not correctly position your vehicle in a parking space.   Your vehicle is rolling in the opposite direction of the current transmission position. For example, rolling forward when in reverse (R).  
An irregular curb along the parking space prevents the system from correctly aligning your vehicle.  
Vehicles or objects bordering the space may not be correctly parked.  
Your vehicle stopped too far past the parking space.  
The tires may not be correctly installed or maintained. For example, not inflated correctly, improper size, or of different sizes.  
A repair or alteration changes the detection capabilities.  
A parked vehicle has a high attachment. For example, a salt sprayer, snowplow or moving truck bed.  
The parking space length or position of parked objects changes after your vehicle passes the space.  
The temperature around your vehicle quickly changes. For example, driving from a heated garage into the cold, or after leaving a car wash.
