WARNING   WARNING:  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.
WARNING   WARNING:  Active Park Assist does not apply the brakes under any circumstances.

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 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 bike rack, trailer or similar object close to the sensors on the front or rear of your vehicle.
  • 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
Park Assist  Press the button located on the center console near the gearshift lever or the right side of the center stack.
A message and a corresponding graphic appears in the display screen to indicate the system is searching for a parking space. Use the direction indicator to select 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.
Parking Aid Indicators
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, 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 1.5 m of the parked 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 touchscreen shows a message to alert you to reduce your vehicle speed.
Automatic Steering into Parking Space
Note:   If your vehicle speed exceeds 10 km/h, the system switches off and you need to take full control of your vehicle.
Note:   If a maneuver is interrupted before completion, the system switches off. The steering wheel position will not indicate the actual position of the steering and you have to full take 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. Instructions to move your vehicle back and forth in the space display on the touchscreen.
Parking Aid System
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 finished. 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 once during an active maneuver.
  • Grabbing the steering wheel.
  • Driving above approximately 35 km/h for 10 seconds during an active park search.
  • Driving above 10 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.  
Your vehicle is farther than 2 m from the parking space.  
Your vehicle is closer than 40 cm from neighboring parked vehicles.  
The transmission is in reverse (R); your vehicle must be moving forward to detect a parking space.  
Your vehicle is going faster than 35 km/h.  

The system does not position your 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.  
Your vehicle was pulled too far 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).
