The front display is located on top of the instrument panel
to the right of the driver. The front display will have either
three or six lights to provide distance and system
information. With Adaptive Cruise control (ACC), it will
have three lights along with the ACC lights. Without ACC,
it will have six lights. High-toned beeps from the front
speakers are for objects detected near the front bumper.
The rear display is located near the rear window and can
be seen by looking over your right shoulder. The rear
display uses three color-coded lights to provide distance
and system information. Low-toned beeps from the rear
speakers are for the rear bumper.
How the System Works
UFRPA comes on automatically when the shift lever
is moved out of P (Park). The system does not
work at a forward or reverse speed greater than
5 mph (8 km/h).
To be detected, objects must be at least 10 inches
(25.4 cm) off the ground and below hood or trunk level.
Objects must also be within 4 feet (1.2 m) in front of
the vehicle and 8 feet (2.5 m) from the rear bumper.
This distance may be less during warmer or humid
weather.
When backing up, if objects are detected at the same
time near both the front and rear bumpers, both
color-coded light displays will notify you of objects close
to each bumper. If there are objects detected near both
bumpers, the beeps will only be sounded to notify that
objects are close to the rear bumper. However, if while
the vehicle is backing up and an object comes within
1 ft (0.3 m) of the front bumper, and at the same time
there is another object further than 1 ft (0.3 m) from the
rear bumper, then the beeps will only be sounded to
notify you of the closer object that is near the front
bumper.
The system can be disabled using the Driver Information
Center (DIC). See ?Parking Assist? under DIC Operation
and Displays on page 3-68 for more information.
