This Volvo rear parking assistance system notifies the driver of obstructions near the rear bumper of the vehicle while parking. When the driver engages the car in reverse gear, the system becomes active. Once an obstruction is identified, the stereo's sound level is muted and a pulsating alert tone comes from the car's rear speakers. The pulsating tone begins to sound when the obstacle is approximately 60 inches from the rear bumper, and becomes a constant tone when the rear bumper is approximately 12 inches from the object. The distance to the object is displayed on the center console screen.
The rear parking assistance kit includes four sensors that are installed in the rear bumper, a control module, wiring, and a button in the center console.
This system may produce false signals as a reaction to external sound with the same frequency as the system's sensors. Typical sources of interference are the horn, wet tires on asphalt, air brakes, and motorcycle exhaust pipes.
The system is automatically switched off when reversing if a trailer module is installed.
The sensors come pre-painted to match the car's bumper.
May require dealer installation or programming.
Not applicable to V60/S60 Cross Country models.
