Park Assist

WHILE PARKING

Automatic Steering

After you stop the vehicle according to the on-screen instructions, the system will instruct you to shift into reverse (R). Once you shift into reverse, take your hands off the wheel and make sure that nothing will obstruct the wheel’s movement. As the vehicle backs up, you will control the gas and brakes, and your vehicle will steer itself. Progress will be indicated by tones and instructions on the screen as you move your vehicle back and forth into the space.

Interruptions

If your speed exceeds 6 mph (10 km/h), the system will switch off and you will need to take full control of your vehicle. If the parallel parking maneuver is interrupted for any other reason before completion, the system will switch off and you will have to take full control of your vehicle.

FINISHING PARKING

Completing the Maneuver

When you determine that your vehicle has enough space in front and behind it, bring the vehicle to a complete stop. Likewise, when the system determines that there is enough space in front and behind your vehicle, it will emit a solid tone accompanied by a screen display message and a chime. This indicates that the maneuver is complete, automatic steering is finished and you should bring the vehicle to a stop. As the driver, you are responsible for double checking the system’s parking and making any necessary corrections before putting the transmission in park (P).

Deactivating the Park Assist Feature

Any of the following actions will manually deactivate the system whether or not you are finished parking:

  • Turning off the traction control system
  • Driving above approximately 50 mph (80 km/h) for 10 seconds during an active park search
  • Pressing the active park assist button again
  • Grabbing the steering wheel
  • Driving above 6 mph (10 km/h) during automatic steering

Certain vehicle conditions can also deactivate the system, such as:

  • Traction control activation on a slippery or loose surface
  • Anti-lock brake system activation or failure
  • Contact with the steering wheel from any object
