PARKING DISTANCE CONTROL
Ultrasonic detectors, installed in the rear bumper (depending on the vehicle), measure the distance between the vehicle and an obstacle whilst reversing.
This measurement is indicated by beeps which become more frequent the closer you come to the obstacle, until they become a continuous beep when the vehicle is approximately 30 centimetres from the obstacle.
NB: make sure that the ultrasonic sensors are not obscured (by dirt, mud, snow, etc.).
Note: depending on the vehicle, the screen 1 shows the vehicle surroundings alongside the beeps.
When reverse gear is selected, most objects which are less than approximately 1.20 metres from the rear of the vehicle are detected, a beep sounds and, depending on the vehicle, the display 1 comes on.
Adjusting the parking distance control volume
Depending on the vehicle, certain settings can be adjusted from the touch-screen 1. Please see the equipment instructions for further information.
This function is an additional aid that indicates the distance between the vehicle and an obstacle whilst reversing, using sound signals.
Under no circumstances should it replace the driver’s care or responsibility whilst reversing.
The driver should always look out for sudden hazards during driving: always ensure that there are no moving obstacles (such as a child, animal, pram or bicycle, etc.) or small, narrow objects such as stones or posts in your path when manoeuvring.
Deactivating the system
Press switch 2 to deactivate the system.
The indicator light built into the switch lights up to remind you that the system is deactivated.
Pressing the switch again will reactivate the system and switch off the indicator light.
Depending on the vehicle, you can deactivate the parking distance control from the touch-screen. Please see the equipment instructions for further information.
Depending on the vehicle, when the system detects an operating fault, the message “check parking distance control” appears on the instrument panel, accompanied by the warning light © and a beep lasting approximately 5 seconds. Please contact an authorised dealer.
An impact to the underside of the vehicle while manoeuvring (e.g.: striking a post, raised kerb or other street furniture) may result in damage to the vehicle (e.g.: deformation of an axle).
To avoid any risk of accident, have your vehicle checked by an approved Dealer.
