WARNINGS

  • To help avoid personal injury, 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 in reverse on a flat surface at parking speeds.

    Traffic control systems, 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 and when using the sensing system.
  • This system is not designed to prevent contact with small or moving objects. The system is designed to provide a warning to assist you in detecting large stationary objects to avoid damaging your vehicle. The system may not detect smaller objects, particularly those close to the ground.

  • Certain add-on devices such as large trailer hitches, bike or surfboard racks and any device that may block the normal detection zone of the system, may create false beeps.

Note: Keep the sensors located on the bumper or fascia free from snow, ice and large accumulations of dirt. If the sensors are covered, the system's accuracy can be affected. Do not clean the sensors with sharp objects.

Note: 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 beeps.

The system warns you of obstacles within a certain range of the bumper area. The system turns on automatically whenever you switch the ignition on. It becomes active when you press the parking aid button or move the transmission selector lever to reverse gear and your vehicle speed is below 8 mph (12 km/h).

When receiving a detection warning, the radio volume is reduced to a predetermined level. After the warning goes away, the radio volume returns to the previous level.

A. Coverage area of up to 31 inches (80 centimeters) from the front of your vehicle, up to 72 inches (183 centimeters) from the rear bumper and about 6-14 inches (15-35 centimeters) to the side of the front end of your vehicle.

The system sounds an audible warning when obstacles are near either bumper in the following manner:

  • Objects detected by the front sensors are indicated by a high-pitched tone from the front speakers.
  • Objects detected by the rear sensors are indicated by a lower pitched tone from the rear speakers. As your vehicle moves closer to the obstacle, the rate of the audible warning increases.
  • The sensing system reports the obstacle which is closest to the front or rear of your vehicle. For example, if an obstacle is 24 inches (60 centimeters) from the front of your vehicle and at the same time, an obstacle is only 16 inches (40 centimeters) from the rear of your vehicle, the lower pitched tone sounds.
  • An alternating warning sounds from the front and rear if there are objects at both bumpers that are closer than 12 inches (30 centimeters).
  • If a stationary or receding object is detected further than 12 inches (30 centimeters) from the side of your vehicle, the tone sounds for only three seconds. Once the system detects an object approaching, the warning sounds again.

The system detects certain objects when the transmission selector lever is in reverse:

  • and your vehicle is moving toward a stationary object at a speed of 3 mph (5 km/h) or less
  • but your vehicle is not moving, and a moving object is approaching the rear of your vehicle at a speed of 3 mph (5 km/h) or less
  • and your vehicle is moving at a speed of less than 3 mph (5 km/h) and a moving object is approaching the rear of your vehicle at a speed of less than 3 mph (5 km/h).

Press the button to switch the system off.

It will remain off for the entire ignition cycle. For item location: See At a Glance
