Using the parking aid - Vehicles With: Front and Rear Parking Aid

The parking aid does not relieve you of your responsibility to drive with due care and attention.

Switching the parking aid on and off

The parking aid is per default off. To switch the parking aid on, select reverse gear or press the switch in the instrument panel. For item location: See Quick start.

The light in the switch illuminates when the parking aid is activated.

To turn it off, press the switch again or disengage reverse gear.

Note: The parking aid switches off automatically after a period of 20 seconds if no obstacle has been detected by the front bumper sensors.

You will hear an intermittent tone at a distance of approximately 150 centimetres (59 inches) between the obstacle and rear bumper, approximately 80 centimetres (31 inches) between the obstacle and front bumper and approximately 50 centimetres (20 inches) to the side. Decreasing the distance accelerates the intermittent tone. A continuous tone will start at a distance of less than 30 centimetres (11 inches) to the front and rear bumper.

You will hear an alternating tone from the front and rear if obstacles are closer than 30 centimetres (11 inches) to the front and rear bumpers.

Note: If a high pitch tone is heard for three seconds and the light in the switch is flashing, this indicates a malfunction.

The system will be disabled. Have the system checked by a properly trained technician.
