Note: If a high pitch warning tone sounds for three seconds and the light in the switch is flashing, it indicates a malfunction. The system will be disabled.

Have the system checked by properly trained technicians.

You will hear an intermittent tone at a distance of up to approximately 150 centimetres (59 inches) between the obstacle and rear bumper, 80 centimetres (31 inches) between the obstacle and front bumper and 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 (12 inches).

You will hear an alternating tone from the front and rear if obstacles are closer than 30 centimetres (12 inches) to the front and rear bumpers.
