(If Equipped)

What is the Rear Parking Aid

Rear parking sensors detect objects behind your vehicle when in reverse (R).

Rear Parking Aid Limitations

There is a decreased coverage area at the outer corners.

When using a programmed MyKey, you cannot switch the rear parking aid off.

The rear parking aid sensors are active when your vehicle is in reverse (R) and the vehicle speed is less than 3 mph (5 km/h).

The sensor coverage area is up to 71 in (180 cm) from the rear bumper.

The rear parking aid detects large objects when you shift into reverse (R) and any of the following occur:

  • Your vehicle is moving backward at a low speed.
  • Your vehicle is stationary but an object is approaching the rear of your vehicle at a low speed.
  • Your vehicle is moving backward at a low speed and an object is moving towards your vehicle, for example another vehicle at a low speed.
