Parksense front and rear park assist - if equipped

The ParkSense Park Assist system provides visual and audible indications of the distance between the rear and/or front fascia and a detected obstacle when backing up or moving forward, e.g. during a parking maneuver.

If your vehicle is equipped with an Automatic Transmission, the vehicle brakes may be automatically applied and released when performing a reverse parking maneuver if the system detects a possible collision with an obstacle.


  • The driver can override the automatic braking function by pushing the gas pedal, turning ParkSense off via ParkSense switch, or changing the gear while the automatic brakes are being applied.
  • Automatic brakes will not be available if ESC is not available.
  • Automatic brakes will not be available if there is a faulted condition detected with the ParkSense Park Assist system or the Braking System Module.
  • The automatic braking function may only be applied if the vehicle deceleration is not enough to avoid colliding with a detected obstacle.
  • The automatic braking function may not be applied fast enough for obstacles that move toward the rear of the vehicle from the left and/or right sides.
  • The automatic braking function can be enabled/ disabled from the Customer-Programmable Features section of the Uconnect System.
  • ParkSense will retain its last known configuration state for the automatic braking function through ignition cycles.

The automatic braking function is intended to assist the driver in avoiding possible collisions with detected obstacles when backing up in REVERSE gear.


  • The driver is always responsible for controlling the vehicle.
  • The system is provided to assist the driver and not to substitute the driver.
  • The driver must stay in full control of the vehicle's acceleration and braking and is responsible for the vehicle's movements.

Refer to ParkSense System Usage Precautions for limitations of this system and recommendations.

ParkSense will retain the last system state (enabled or disabled) from the last ignition cycle when the ignition is changed to the ON/RUN position.

ParkSense can be active only when the shift lever is in REVERSE or DRIVE. If ParkSense is enabled at one of these shift lever positions, the system will remain active until the vehicle speed is increased to approximately 7 mph (11 km/h) or above. When in REVERSE and above the system's operating speed, a warning will appear in the EVIC/DID indicating the vehicle speed is too fast.

The system will become active again if the vehicle speed is decreased to speeds less than approximately 6 mph (9 km/h).
