Operation with trailer

The system is preset for deactivating automatically when the trailer electric cable plug is fitted into the car tow hook socket.

Sensors are reactivated when removing the trailer cable plug.

For proper operation, the parking sensors set on the bumpers shall be clean from mud, dirt, snow or ice. When cleaning the sensors, take the utmost care to prevent their damaging; do not use therefore dry or rough clothes. Sensors shall be washed with clean water and car detergent, if required. In washing stations, clean sensors quickly keeping the vapour jet/high pressure washing nozzles at 10 cm at least from the sensors.

WARNING

Parking manoeuvres however are always under the driver’s responsibility. He/she shall always check the absence of people (specially children) or animals in the manoeuvre space. This system is just a help for the driver but he shall never reduce attention during dangerous manoeuvres even if performed at low speed.
