Parking sensors (where provided)

Parking sensors are located in the rear bumper to detect and inform the driver (through an intermittent acoustic signal) about the presence of obstacles behind the vehicle.

ACTIVATION

Sensors will activate automatically when engaging reverse gear.

The frequency of the acoustic alarm will increase as the distance between the vehicle and the obstacle decreases.

BUZZER WARNINGS

When the reverse gear is engaged an intermittent acoustic signal is automatically activated (short beep to signal system activation).

The acoustic signal frequency:

Ц becomes louder as the reduction of distance between the vehicle and the obstacle decreases;

Ц becomes continuous when the distance between the vehicle and the obstacle is less that 30 cm and stops immediately if the distance raises;

Ц is constant if the distance is unvaried.

IMPORTANT

In the event of a parking sensor system failure, you will hear an alarm signal when you engage reverse gear.

The sensors are shaped to fit into the bumpers and optimise scanning angles.

Detection distances:

Detection distances:

Central ray ................................130 cm

Corner action range ................ 60 cm

Min/max range ................... 25/180 cm

If several sensors signal an obstacle, the control unit checks and indicates the closest one.

The system will automatically cut out also when reverse gear is engaged after a distance of 50 or after exceeding the speed of 30 km/h.

For proper operation, the parking sensors shall always be clean from mud,

For proper operation, the parking sensors shall always be clean from mud, dirt, snow or ice. Therefore keep the rear bumpers clean to prevent irregular operation of the parking sensors.
