Op. No.: 36630
Front parking assistance is an excellent system that warns of obstacles when you have limited space in front of the car, such as when parallel parking.
The system is activated when speed is less than 15 km/h (9.3 mph). A signal indicates the distance to objects in front of the car. When an object is indicated, the volume of the radio/stereo is muted and a pulsating "buzzer tone" is heard from the car's front loudspeakers. The tone starts when the obstacle is approx. 80 cm (31.5 in) away and increases to a continuous tone when the distance is approx. 30 cm (11.8 in) away from the front bumper.
In order to differentiate between the front and rear systems, different tone frequencies are used and the sound comes from different speakers, front or rear.
The system consists of wiring and four sensors that are installed practically invisibly in the front bumper. The sensors are painted the same colour as the car bumper. Parking assistance can be disabled using the button in the center console when driving in a traffic jam or the like.
The system can produce "false" signals as a reaction to external sound sources with the same frequency as the system's sensors. Typical sources are the horn, wet tires on asphalt, air brakes and motorcycle exhaust pipes.
