To help avoid personal injury, please read and understand the limitations of the system as contained in this section. Sensing is only an aid for some (generally large and fixed) objects when moving on a flat surface at parking speeds. Certain objects with surfaces that absorb ultrasonic waves, surrounding vehicle's parking aid systems, traffic control systems, fluorescent lamps, inclement weather, air brakes, and external motors and fans may also affect the function of the sensing system. This may include reduced performance or a false activation.
To help avoid personal injury, always use caution when in reverse (R) and when using the sensing system.
The parking aid system may not prevent contact with small or moving objects that are close to the ground. The parking aid system gives an audible warning when it detects a large object helping to avoid damage to your vehicle. To help avoid personal injury you must take care when using the parking aid system.
Some add-on accessories such as large trailer hitches, bike or surfboard racks can cause reduced performance or false alerts.
Keep the sensors free from snow, ice and large accumulations of dirt.
Do not clean the sensors with sharp objects.
If your vehicle sustains damage to the bumper or fascia, leaving it misaligned or bent, the sensing zone may be altered causing inaccurate measurement of obstacles or false alarms.
The sensing system warns the driver of obstacles within a certain range of your vehicle. The system turns on automatically whenever you switch the ignition on.
When you receive a detection warning, the radio volume reduces to a predetermined level. After the warning goes away, the radio volume returns to the previous level.
You can turn the system on or off by pressing the parking aid button. If your vehicle does not have a parking aid button, the system can be switched off through the display screen menu or from the pop-up message that appears once you shift the transmission into reverse (R). See
If a fault is present in the system, a warning message appears in the display screen and you cannot switch the system on through the parking aid button. See
