WARNING   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   WARNING:  The sensors may not detect objects in heavy rain or other conditions that cause interference.
WARNING   WARNING:  Active park assist does not apply the brakes under any circumstances.
WARNING   WARNING:  The system is designed to aid the driver. It is not intended to replace your attention and judgment. You are still responsible to drive with due care and attention.

Note:   The Blind Spot Information System does not detect traffic alongside or behind your vehicle during an active park assist maneuver.
The system detects an available parallel parking space and automatically steers the vehicle into the space (hands-free) while you control the accelerator, gearshift and brakes. The system visually and audibly instructs you to park the vehicle.
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 pushing the Active Park Assist button.
The system may not correctly operate in any of the following conditions:
  • You use a spare tire or a tire significantly worn more than the other tires.
  • One or more tires are improperly 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 parking vehicle is high off the ground (for example, a bus, tow truck or flatbed truck).
  • The weather conditions are poor (for example, heavy rain, snow, fog and so forth).
Note:   Keep the sensors, located on the bumper or fascia, free from snow, ice and large accumulations of dirt.Covered sensors can affect the system's accuracy.Do not clean the sensors with sharp objects.
Note:   The sensors may not detect objects with surfaces that absorb ultrasonic waves or cause ultrasonic interference (for example, motorcycle exhaust, truck air brakes or horns).
Note:   Following a tire change in tire size, the system must recalibrate and operation may be impaired for a short time.
Using Active Park Assist
Active Park Assist Button
Press the button located on the center console near the transmission selector or to the right of the center stack.
When driving at a speed less than 35 km/h the system automatically scans both sides of your vehicle for an available parking space. The system displays a graphic to indicate it is searching for a parking space. Use the direction indicator to select to search on either the left-hand side or right-hand side of your vehicle. If the direction indicators are not used, the system defaults to searching on the passenger side of your vehicle.
Note:   You can also activate the Active Park Assist system after you have already driven partially or completely past a parking space. To do so, press the Active Park button and the system will inform you if you have recently passed a suitable parking space.
Parking Aid Indicators
When the system finds a suitable space, it displays a message and a tone sounds. Stop your vehicle and follow the instructions on the screen. If your vehicle is moving very slowly, you may need to pull forward a short distance before the system is ready to park.
Note:   You must observe that the selected space remains clear of obstructions at all times during the maneuver.
Note:   You should drive your vehicle within 1.5 m and as parallel as possible 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 35 km/h, the display screen shows a message to alert you to reduce vehicle speed.
Automatic Steering into Parking Space
Note:   If vehicle speed exceeds 10 km/h, or the maneuver is interrupted, the system switches off and you need to take full control of the 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. The system displays instructions to move your vehicle back and forth in the space.
Parking Aid System
When you think the vehicle is properly parked, or you hear a solid tone from the parking aid (accompanied by a display message and a chime), bring the vehicle to a complete stop.
Parking Aids - Active Park Assist
When automatic steering is complete, the system displays a message and a tone sounds, indicating that the process is finished. You are responsible for checking the parking job and making any necessary corrections before leaving your vehicle.
Deactivating the Park Assist Feature
Manually deactivate the system by:
  • Pressing the active park assist button during an active maneuver.
  • Grabbing the steering wheel during automatic steering.
  • Driving above approximately 35 km/h for 30 seconds during an active park search.
  • Driving above approximately 10 km/h during automatic steering.
  • Switching off the traction control system.
Certain vehicle conditions can also deactivate the system, such as:
  • Traction control has activated.
  • There is an anti-lock brake system activation or failure.
If a problem occurs with the system, a warning message is displays accompanied 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 be able to detect a parking space.  


The system does not offer a particular space  
The sensors may be covered (for example snow, ice or dirt buildup). Covered sensors can affect the system's functionality.  
There is not enough space for the parking maneuver on the opposite side of the parking space.  
The parking space is farther than 1.5 m or closer than 40 cm.  
Your vehicle is going faster than 35 km/h.  
You may have recently disconnected or replaced the battery. After a battery disconnect, your vehicle must be driven on a straight road for a short period of time.  


The system does not position the vehicle where I want in the space  
Your vehicle is rolling in the opposite direction of the transmission. For example, rolling forward when reverse (R) is selected.  
An irregular curb along the parking space prevents the system from aligning the vehicle properly.  
Vehicles or objects bordering the space may not be positioned correctly.  
Your vehicle was pulled 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 (for example, tires not inflated correctly, improper tire size, or tires of different sizes).  
A repair or alteration has changed detection capabilities.  
A parked vehicle has a high attachment (for example, a salt sprayer, snowplow, moving truck bed, and so forth).  
The parking space length or position of parked objects changed after your vehicle passed.  
The temperature around your vehicle changes quickly (for example, driving from a heated garage into the cold, or after leaving a car wash).
