The warning signal has a constant acoustic signal at less than approx. 30 cm (1 foot) from an obstacle.
The Parking Assistance System's front detectors are activated automatically when the engine is started. They are active at speeds below 10 km/h (6 mph).
The measuring range is approx. 80 cm (2.5 feet) in front of the car.
Parking assistance is deactivated when the parking brake is used or P mode is selected in a car with an automatic gearbox.
When auxiliary lamps are fitted: Remember that these must not obscure the sensors - the auxiliary lamps may then be perceived as an obstacle.
The warning signal has a constant tone at less than approx. 30 cm (1 foot) from an obstacle.
The sensors for reverse are activated if the car rolls backward without a gear engaged or when the gear lever is moved to reverse position.
The measuring range is approx. 1.5 metres (5 feet) behind the car.
When reversing with a trailer connected to the car's electrical system, parking assistance backward is deactivated automatically.
When reversing with e.g. a trailer or bike carrier on the towbar - without Volvo genuine trailer wiring - parking assistance may need to be switched off manually in order that the sensors do not react to them.
Along the sides
The warning signal pulses intensively at less than approx. 25 cm (0.8 foot) from an obstacle.
Parking assistance side sensors are activated automatically when the engine is started. They are active at speeds below 10 km/h (6 mph).
The measuring range is approx. 25 cm (0.8 foot) from the sides.
However, the detection range of the side sensors increases significantly when the steering angle of the front wheels is increased, and obstacles of up to approx. 90 cm (3 feet) located diagonally behind or in front of the vehicle are detected when the steering wheel is turned.
