Park Assist Pilot front, rear and along the sides*

Parking Assistance System (PASPark Assist System) has different behaviour depending on which part of the car is approaching an obstacle.

Forwards

P5-1507-Park Assist, warning signal front

The warning signal has a constant tone at less than approx. 30 cm (1 ft) 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 ft) in front of the car.

Note

Parking assistance is deactivated when the parking brake is used or P mode is selected in a car with an automatic gearbox.

Important

When auxiliary lamps are fitted: Remember that these must not obscure the sensors - the auxiliary lamps may then be perceived as an obstacle.

Backwards

P5-1507-Park Assist, warning signal rear

The warning signal has a constant tone at less than approx. 30 cm (1 ft) 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 ft) behind the car.

When reversing with a trailer connected to the car's electrical system, parking assistance backward is deactivated automatically.

Note

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

P5+6-1817 -Park Assist System-Sectors

The warning signal pulses intensively at less than approx. 25 cm (0.8 ft) 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 ft) 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 ft) located diagonally behind or in front of the vehicle are detected when the steering wheel is turned.
