The parking assistance system is automatically activated when the engine is started - the switch's On/Off lamp is illuminated. If parking assistance is switched off with the button, the lamp goes out.
The distance covered in front of the car is about 0.8 metres. The acoustic signal for obstacles in front comes from one of the front loudspeakers.
The front parking assistance system is active up to 10 km/h (6 mph).
If the Parking Assistance System is deactivated because the car is moving too quickly - 11 km/h (7 mph) or above - the function is reactivated when the speed falls below 10 km/h (6 mph).
Parking assistance is deactivated when the parking brake is applied 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.
