Op. No.: 39631 36687
Rear parking assistance is an excellent system that warns of obstructions when you have limited space behind the car, e.g. with tight parking.
The system is activated when reverse gear is engaged. The radio's/stereo's sound level is muted and a pulsating "buzzer tone" starts to sound in the car's rear speakers when approx. 150 cm(4.9 feet) remain to the obstruction and becomes a constant tone when the obstruction is approx. 30 cm (12 in) from the rear bumper.
The kit consists of four sensors that are installed in the rear bumper, a control module, as well as wiring. Cradles and sensors are painted in the same colour as the car.
It is possible to turn the system off manually via the menu in the radio display. If Volvo genuine towbar cables are used, it is turned off automatically by the system when you are reversing with a trailer.
