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:  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.
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.

Note:   The blind spot information system does not detect traffic alongside or behind your vehicle during an active park assist maneuver.
Note:   Active park assist is a multi-step process and may require you to shift your transmission multiple times. Follow the on-screen instructions until you complete the parking process.
The system detects an available parallel parking space and automatically steers your vehicle (hands-free) while you control the accelerator, transmission and brakes. The system visually and audibly guides you to park your 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 operate correctly 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, during heavy rain, snow or fog.
Note:   Keep the sensors on the fascia free from snow, ice and large accumulations of dirt. Covered sensors can affect the systems 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 change in tire size, the system must recalibrate and operation may be impaired for a short time.
Do not use the system if:
  • You have attached a bike rack, trailer or other object near the sensors on the front or rear of your vehicle.
  • You have attached an overhanging object to the roof. For example, a surfboard.
  • A foreign object damages or obstructs the sensors.
  • The correct tire size is not in use. For example, when using a mini-spare tire.
Using Active Park Assist
Park Assist  Press the active park assist button to search for a parallel parking space.
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 message and a corresponding graphic to indicate it is searching for a parking space. Use the direction indicator to select searching either to the left hand side or right hand side of your vehicle. If the direction indicator is not used, the system defaults to the passenger side of your vehicle.
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 display 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 can also activate the system after you drive partially or completely pass the parking space. To do so, press the active park assist button and the system informs you if you recently passed a suitable parking space.
Note:   You must observe that the selected space remains clear of obstructions at all times in the maneuver.
Note:   You should drive your vehicle within 1.5 m and as parallel to the other vehicles as possible while passing a parking space.
Note:   The system always offers the last detected parking space. For example, if your vehicle detects multiple spaces while you are driving, it offers the last detected space.
Note:   If driven above approximately 35 km/h, the display screen shows a message to alert you to reduce your vehicle speed.
Automatic Steering into Parking Space
Note:   If vehicle speed exceeds 9 km/h or the maneuver is interrupted, for example driver input is detected, the system switches off and you need to take full control of your vehicle.
When you shift the transmission 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 back and forth in the space.
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 complete, the system displays a message and a chime sounds, indicating that the active park assist 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 an active maneuver.
  • Driving above approximately 35 km/h for 30 seconds during an active park search.
  • Driving above 9 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 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 detect a parking space.  

The System Does Not Offer a Particular Space  
The sensors may be covered. For example, with snow, ice or dirt. Covered sensors can affect the system's functionality  
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 farther than 1.5 m or closer than 40 cm away.  
Your vehicle is going faster than 35 km/h.  
You may have recently disconnected or replaced the battery. After a battery disconnect, the 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 the transmission is in reverse (R).  
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 system performs best when you drive the same distance past the parking space.  
The tires may not be installed or maintained correctly. For example, not inflated correctly, improper size or of a different size.  
A repair or alteration has changed 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 changed after your vehicle passed.  
The temperature around your vehicle changes quickly. For example, when driving from a heated garage into the cold, or after leaving a car wash.
