The front sensors are active when the transmission is in any position other than park (P) and your vehicle is traveling at low speed.
Coverage area of up to
28 in (70 cm) from the front bumper. The coverage area decreases at the outer corners.
When your vehicle approaches an object, a warning tone sounds. When your vehicle moves closer to an object, the warning tone repeat rate increases. The warning tone sounds continuously when an object is
12 in (30 cm) or less from the front bumper.
You can switch the system off through the information display menu or from the pop-up message that appears once you shift the transmission into reverse (R). See
If your vehicle has a parking aid button, you can switch the system off by pressing the button.
Obstacle Distance Indicator (If Equipped)
The system provides obstacle distance indication through the information display.
The indicator displays:
- As the distance to the obstacle decreases the indicator blocks illuminate and move towards the vehicle icon.
- If there is no obstacle detected, the distance indicator blocks turn grey.
If the transmission is in reverse (R), the front sensing system provides audio warnings when your vehicle is moving and the detected obstacle is moving towards your vehicle. Once the vehicle is stationary, the audio warning stops after two seconds. Visual indication is always present in reverse (R).
If the transmission is in drive (D) or any other forward gear (for example, low (L), sport (S) or any forward gear in a manual transmission), the front sensing system provides audio and visual warnings when your vehicle is moving below a speed of
5 mph (8 km/h) and an obstacle is inside the detection area. Once the vehicle is stationary, the audio warning stops after two seconds and the visual indication stops after four seconds. If the obstacles detected are within
12 in (30 cm), the visual indication remains on.
If the transmission is in neutral (N), the system provides visual indication only when your vehicle is moving at
5 mph (8 km/h) or below and an obstacle is inside the detection area. Once your vehicle is stationary, the visual indication stops after four seconds.
