Using ultrasonic detectors as indicated by the 3 arrows installed in the vehicle bumpers, this function helps to find accessible parking spaces and assists in the parking manoeuvre.

Remove your hands from the steering wheel, you only control:

- the accelerator pedal;

- the brake pedal;

- the gear lever.

At any time, you can regain control by using the steering wheel.

Switching on

With the vehicle stationary or driving at less than approximately 19 mph (30 km/h):

- press switch 2. The indicator light in switch 2 lights up and display A appears on the multimedia screen 1;

- set the direction indicators to the side of the vehicle where you want to park.

Special features

Ensure that the ultrasonic sensors indicated by arrows 3 are not obscured (by dirt, mud, snow, etc.).

Choice of manoeuvre

The system can perform four types of manoeuvres:

- parallel parking;

- perpendicular parking;

- angle parking;

- moving out of a parallel parking space.

From the 1 multimedia screen, select the manoeuvre to carry out.

Note: when starting the vehicle, or after having successfully completed parallel parking using the system, the default manoeuvre proposed by the system is assistance in exiting a parallel parking space. In other cases, the default manoeuvre can be set from the multimedia screen 1. Please refer to the multimedia instructions for further information.

Operation

Parking

As long as the vehicle speed is less than 19 mph (30 km/h), the system searches for available parking spaces on the side of the vehicle chosen by the driver.

Note: if parking spaces are available on the other side of the vehicle, set the direction indicators to the other direction to enable the system to search for spaces.

Once a space has been found, it is displayed on the multimedia screen, indicated by a small letter “P”. Drive slowly, with the direction indicators activated on the side where the space is available, until the message “Stop” is displayed and a beep sounds.

The system start up is accompanied by activation of the parking distance control and, on those vehicles equipped, the reversing camera or 360° camera to help the driver visualise the manoeuvre. PARKING DISTANCE CONTROL, REVERSING CAMERA and 360° CAMERA.

The space is then indicated on the multimedia screen by a capital letter “P”.

- Stop the vehicle;

- select reverse gear.

The indicator light lights up on the instrument panel and a beep sounds.

- Release the steering wheel;

- follow the instructions shown on the multifunction screen 1.

Your speed should not exceed around 4 mph (7 km/h).

Once the warning light on the instrument panel goes off and a beep sounds, the manoeuvre has been completed.

Exiting a parallel parking space

- Briefly press the 2 switch;

- select “Exit parallel parking space” mode;

- activate the direction indicators on the side you wish to go out of;

- press and hold switch 2 (approx. two seconds).

The indicator light lights up on the instrument panel and a beep sounds.

- Release the steering wheel;

- carry out manoeuvres at the front and rear by following the instructions shown on the multimedia screen 1 and using the parking distance control system alerts.

Your speed should not exceed around 4 mph (7 km/h).

Once the vehicle is in a position to exit the parking space, the warning light disappears from the instrument panel and a sound signal and message appear on the multimedia screen 1 to confirm that the manoeuvre is complete.

This function is an additional driving aid.

Therefore, it can under no circumstances replace the driver’s vigilance and responsibility during manoeuvres (the driver must always be ready to brake).

When manoeuvring, the steering wheel may turn quickly: do not put your hands inside, and make sure that nothing is caught inside.

Suspending/Resuming the manoeuvre

The manoeuvre is suspended in the following circumstances:

- you take control of the wheel;

- the vehicle is stationary for too long;

- an obstacle in the direction of movement prevents the manoeuvre from being completed;

- the engine stops;

- a door or the luggage compartment is opened.

The warning light on the 2 switch turns off, the warning light disappears from the instrument panel and a sound signal confirms that the manoeuvre has been suspended. The reason for suspending the manoeuvre will be displayed on the multimedia screen 1.

Make sure:

- you have released the steering wheel;

and

- that all doors and the boot are closed;

and

- that no obstacles are in the way of the direction of movement;

and

- that the engine is started.

If the warning light on the 2 switch flashes, this indicates that the system is once again available to resume the manoeuvre.

To resume the manoeuvre, press and hold the 2 switch. The 2 switch warning light appears and warning light is displayed on the instrument panel.

Follow the instructions shown on the multimedia screen 1.

Cancelling the manoeuvre

The manoeuvre is cancelled in the following cases:

- the vehicle speed has exceeded 4 mph (7 km/h);

- by pressing switch 2;

- you have performed more than ten forwards/backwards movements in one manoeuvre;

- the parking distance control sensors are dirty or blocked;

- the vehicle wheels have skidded;

- the manoeuvre has been suspended for too long.

The 2 switch warning light and the warning light disappear from the instrument panel and a sound signal confirms that the manoeuvre has been cancelled. The reason for cancelling the manoeuvre will be displayed on the multimedia screen 1.

This function is an additional driving aid. This function is not under any circumstances intended to replace the due care and attention of the driver, who should at all times be in control of the vehicle. Make sure that the manoeuvre complies with the applicable traffic regulations in your location.

The driver should always be ready for sudden incidents while driving: always ensure that there are no small, narrow moving obstacles (such as a child, animal, pushchair, bicycle, stone, post, towing equipment, etc.) in the blind spot when manoeuvring.

System servicing/repairs

- In the event of an impact, the alignment of the sensors may be changed and their operation may consequently be affected. Deactivate the function and consult an authorised dealer.

- Any work in the area where the sensors are located (repairs, replacements, exterior trim modifications, etc.) must be carried out by a qualified professional.

Only an authorised dealer is qualified to service the system.

In the event of system disturbance

Certain conditions may disrupt or impair operation of the system, such as poor weather conditions (snow, hail, ice, etc.).

In the event of the system behaving abnormally, deactivate it and consult an authorised dealer.

Risk of erroneous false alarms.

Limitations of the system operation

- The system cannot detect objects located in the sensor blind spots.

- Always visually check that the parking space proposed by the system is still available and contains no obstacles.

- The system should not be used when towing a trailer or when there is a towing or load carrying system on the vehicle or on surrounding vehicles.
