Ford Escape: Parking Aids / Side Parking Aid - Vehicles With: Active Park Assist

What is the Side Parking Aid

The front and rear outermost parking aid sensors map objects that are near to the sides of your vehicle.

Side Parking Aid Limitations

The sensor coverage is up to 24 in (60 cm) from the sides of your vehicle.

The side parking aid may not function if:

  • You switch your vehicle on, off and back on within a few seconds.
  • Your vehicle remains stationary for over two minutes.
  • The anti-lock brake system activates.
  • The traction control system activates.
  • Your vehicle is in park (P).
  • The steering wheel angle information is not available. You must drive at least 492 ft (150 m) above 19 mph (30 km/h) to reset the steering wheel angle information.

Note: If you switch traction control off, the side sensing system also turns off.

To reinitialize the system, drive the length of your vehicle.

The side parking aid does not detect an object that is moving toward the side of your vehicle, for example another vehicle moving at a low speed, if it does not pass a front or rear parking aid sensor.

If the transmission is in reverse (R), the side sensing system provides audible warnings. When your vehicle is moving slowly, obstacles are detected within 24 in (60 cm) and are inside the driving path of your vehicle. Once your vehicle reaches a standstill condition, the audible warning stops after a few seconds. Visual indication is always present in reverse (R).

If your vehicle is in neutral (N), the side sensing system provides visual indication only when your vehicle is moving slowly and there is a front or rear park aid obstacle detected, and the side obstacle is within 24 in (60 cm) from the side of your vehicle. Once your vehicle reaches a stop, the visual indication stops after a few seconds.

If the transmission is in drive (D) or any other forward gear, the side sensing system provides audible and visual warnings. When your vehicle is moving slowly, obstacles are detected within 24 in (60 cm) and are inside the driving path of your vehicle. Once your vehicle reaches a standstill condition, the audible warning and visual indication stops after a few seconds.
