Intuitive parking assist
The distance to obstacles measured by the sensors is communicated via the multi-information display and a buzzer when parallel parking or maneuvering into a garage. Always check the surrounding area when using this system.
For vehicles equipped with a navigation system, refer to the separate “Navigation System Owner’s Manual” for further details.
Types of sensors
1. Front corner sensors.
2. Rear corner sensors.
3. Back sensors.
1. Front corner sensor operation.
2. Rear corner sensor operation.
3. Back sensor operation.
Intuitive parking assist switch
When ON, an indicator on the switch comes on to inform the driver that the function is operational.
The display and buzzer system
Corner sensor operation display and distance to an obstacle
The system operates when the vehicle approaches within approximately 1.6 ft. (50 cm) of an obstacle.
1. Approximately 1.6 ft. (50 cm) to 1.2 ft. (37.5 cm) from the obstacle.
2. Approximately 1.2 ft. (37.5 cm) to 0.8 ft. (25 cm) from the obstacle.
3. Flashing: Within 0.8 ft. (25 cm) of the obstacle.
Back sensor operation display and distance to an obstacle
The system operates when the vehicle approaches within approximately 4.9 ft. (150 cm) of an obstacle.
1. Approximately 4.9 ft. (150 cm) to 2.0 ft. (60 cm) from the obstacle.
2. Approximately 2.0 ft. (60 cm) to 1.5 ft. (45 cm) from the obstacle.
3. Approximately 1.5 ft. (45 cm) to 1.2 ft. (35 cm) from the obstacle.
4. Flashing: Within 1.2 ft. (35 cm) of the obstacle.
Buzzer operation and distance to the obstacle
A buzzer sounds when the corner sensors and back sensor are operating.
- The buzzer beeps faster as the vehicle approaches an obstacle.
When the vehicle comes within the following distance of the obstacle, the buzzer sounds continuously.
•Corner sensors: Approximately 0.8 ft. (25 cm).
• Back sensors: Approximately 1.2 ft. (35 cm).
- When two or more obstacles are detected simultaneously, the buzzer system responds to the nearest obstacle.
- If multiple obstacles are detected within 0.8 ft. (25 cm) in front and behind the vehicle at the same time, the warning buzzer will change in the following manner: • If a continuous beep is sounding, and a new obstacle is detected near a different area of the vehicle, the warning buzzer will sound 6 beeps then one continuous beep.
• If a continuous beep is sounding, and a new obstacle is detected within 0.8 ft. (25 cm) of a different area of the vehicle, the warning buzzer will sound 2 beeps then one continuous beep.
Detection range of the sensors
1. Approximately 1.6 ft. (50 cm).
2. Approximately 4.9 ft. (150 cm).
3. Approximately 1.6 ft. (50 cm).
The diagram shows the detection range of the sensors. Note that the sensors cannot detect obstacles that are extremely close to the vehicle.
The range of the sensors may change depending on the shape of the object etc.
Sensor detection information
Certain vehicle conditions and the surrounding environment may affect the ability of the sensor to correctly detect obstacles. Particular instances where this
may occur are listed below.
• There is dirt, snow or ice on the sensor.
• The sensor is frozen.
• The sensor is covered in any way.
• The vehicle is leaning considerably to one side.
• On an extremely bumpy road, on an incline, on gravel, or on grass • The vicinity of the vehicle is noisy due to vehicle horns, motorcycle engines, air brakes of large vehicles, or other loud noises producing ultrasonic waves.
• There is another vehicle equipped with parking assist sensors in the vicinity.
• The sensor is coated with a sheet of spray or heavy rain • The vehicle is equipped with a fender pole or wireless antenna.
• Towing eyelets are installed.
• The bumper or sensor receives a strong impact.
• The vehicle is approaching a tall or curved curb.
• In harsh sunlight or intense cold weather In addition to the examples above, there are instances in which, because of their
shapes, signs and other objects may be judged by the sensor to be closer than they
- The shape of the obstacle may prevent the sensor from detecting it. Pay particular
attention to the following obstacles.
• Wires, fences, ropes etc.
• Cotton, snow and other materials that absorb radio waves • Sharply-angled objects • Low obstacles
• Tall obstacles with upper sections projecting outwards in the direction of your

Caution when using the intuitive parking assist Observe the following precautions.
Failing to do so may result in the vehicle being unable to be driven safely and possibly
cause an accident.
- Do not use the sensor at speeds in excess of 6 mph (10 km/h).
- Do not attach any accessories within the sensor range.
Notes when washing the vehicle Do not apply intensive bursts of water or steam to the sensor area.
Doing so may result in the sensor malfunctioning.
