Lexus ES: Intuitive parking assist

The distance from your vehicle to objects, such as a wall, when parallel parking or maneuvering into a garage is measured by the sensors and communicated via the multi-information display, head-up display (if equipped), Center Display and a buzzer. Always check the surrounding area when using this system.

System components

■ Types of sensors

Lexus ES. Using the driving support systems

  1. Front corner sensors
  2. Front center sensors
  3. Rear corner sensors
  4. Rear center sensors

■ Display When the sensors detect an object, such as a wall, a graphic is shown on the multi-information display, head-up display (if equipped) and Center Display depending on the position and distance to the object.

  1. Front corner sensor detection
  2. Front center sensor detection
  3. Rear corner sensor detection
  4. Rear center sensor detection

A graphic is shown when the Lexus parking assist monitor (if equipped) is displayed.

A simplified image is displayed on the Center Display when an object is detected.

Lexus ES. Using the driving support systems

When an object is detected, a graphic will be displayed on the panoramic view monitor (if equipped).

Turning intuitive parking assist on/off

Use the meter control switches to enable/disable the Lexus parking assist-sensor.

1. Press or to select .

2. Press or to select "PKSA" and then press "OK".

3. Press or to select and then press "OK".

When the intuitive parking assist function is disabled, the intuitive parking assist OFF indicator illuminates on the multi-information display.

To re-enable the system, select on the multi-information display, select and turn it on. If the system is disabled, it will remain off even if the power switch is turned to ON mode after the power switch has been turned off.

WARNING

■When using the intuitive parking assist Observe the following precautions.

Failing to do so may result in the vehicle being unable to be driven safely and possibly cause an accident.

■When to disable the function In the following situations, disable the function as it may operate even though there is no possibility of a collision.

■When using intuitive parking assist In the following situations, the system may not function correctly due to a sensor malfunction, etc. Have the vehicle checked by your Lexus dealer.

■Notes when washing the vehicle Do not apply intensive bursts of water or steam to the sensor area.

Doing so may result in the sensor malfunctioning.

■The system can be operated when

■Setting the buzzer volume The buzzer volume can be adjusted on the multi-information display.

■If "Parking Assist Unavailable Clean Parking Assist Sensor" is displayed on the multi-information display A sensor may be covered with ice, snow, dirt, etc. Remove the ice, snow, dirt, etc., from the sensor to return the system to normal.

Also, due to ice forming on a sensor at low temperatures, a warning message may be displayed or the sensor may not be able to detect an object. Once the ice melts, the system will return to normal.

■If "Parking Assist Unavailable" is displayed on the multi-information display

■If a 12-volt battery terminal has been disconnected and reconnected The system needs to be initialized. To initialize the system, drive the vehicle straight ahead for 5 seconds or more at a speed of approximately 22 mph (35 km/h) or more.

Additionally, for vehicles with the Parking Support Brake function, turn the steering wheel fully to the left and right with the vehicle stopped.

■Sensor detection information

■Conditions under which the function may not function correctly Certain vehicle conditions and the surrounding environment may affect the ability of a sensor to correctly detect objects. Particular instances where this may occur are listed below.

■Objects which may not be properly detected The shape of the object may prevent the sensor from detecting it. Pay particular attention to the following objects:

People may not be detected if they are wearing certain types of clothing.

Sensor detection display, object distance

■ Detection range of the sensors

Lexus ES. Using the driving support systems

  1. Approximately 3.3 ft. (100 cm)
  2. Approximately 4.9 ft. (150 cm)
  3. Approximately 2.0 ft. (60 cm)

The diagram shows the detection range of the sensors. Note that the sensors cannot detect objects that are extremely close to the vehicle.

The range of the sensors may change depending on the shape of the object, etc.

■ Multi-information display, head-up display (if equipped) and Center Display When an object is detected by a sensor, the approximate distance to the object will be displayed on the multi-information display, Center Display, and head-up display.

(As the distance to the object becomes short, the distance segments may blink.)
