Parking

Interrupting or automatically stopping the parking procedure

The Park Assist system will stop the parking procedure if the following happens:

The Park Assist system has system-related limitations. For example, the Park Assist system cannot help you to park the vehicle on tight bends.

When parking parallel to the road, a warning signal can be heard to tell the driver to switch between driving forwards and reversing because the change of direction should not take place in the permanent tone area of the ParkPilot.

The progress bar in the instrument cluster display will symbolically indicate the relative distance remaining.

If the Park Assist system turns the steering wheel when the vehicle is stationary, the symbol appears as well. Depress the brake pedal so that the steering movement takes place with the vehicle stationary, keeping the required number of parking movements to a minimum.

If the parking result worsens after a wheel is changed, the system will first have to synchronise itself with the new wheel. The synchronisation procedure is carried out automatically while the vehicle is in motion. You can support this process by driving slowly (less than 20 km/h (12 mph)) through a bend, e.g. in an empty car park.
