  2. POINTS TO NOTE WHEN SERVICING


    1. Pay attention to the following points when servicing.


      1. When disconnecting the cable from the negative (-) auxiliary battery terminal, "System initializing" may appear on the navigation ECU sub-assembly. In this case, restore the steering angle neutral point Click here.

      2. Depending on the parts that are replaced or operations that are performed during vehicle inspection or maintenance, calibration of other systems as well as the intelligent parking assist system may be needed Click here.

        Tech Tips

        Each adjusted value for the calibration of the intelligent parking assist system will be stored in the parking assist ECU.

      3. When the lens of the rear television camera assembly is dirty, wash the lens with water and wipe it off with a soft cloth to obtain clear images. For heavy dirt, use neutral detergent to clean the lens.

  3. NOTES FOR REAR TELEVISION CAMERA ASSEMBLY


    1. Notes for the rear television camera assembly


      1. The intelligent parking assist system may not function properly if subjected to a severe blow by any hard object.

      2. Do not scrub the cover part of the camera (resin made). Scrubbing may scratch the cover and affect the image. Prevent organic solvents, waxes, bond removing solvents or glass coating from adhering to the cover. If such material adheres to the cover, clean it off immediately and wash with water.

      3. Exposing the camera to a sudden temperature change may affect proper functioning of the camera.

      4. A clear image may not appear if the camera is dirty with snow, mud, etc. In that case, wash it with water and wipe off the lens. Use a detergent to remove dirt if necessary.

      5. When washing the vehicle with a high-pressure washer, do not spray water on the rear television camera assembly or surrounding area. High-pressure water can damage the camera.

    2. Images are difficult to discern even in normal conditions if:


      1. Electrical devices are used in the cabin (noise may occur in the image).

      2. Accessories that generate radio waves have been installed (noise may occur in the image).

      3. The outer mirror switch assembly is operated (noise may occur in the image).

      4. The camera screen is frosted over (the image immediately after turning the power switch on (IG) may be blurred or darker than normal).

      5. The camera lens is dirty with snow, mud, etc.

      6. A strong beam of light, such as a sunbeam or headlight, hits the camera.

      7. It is too dark around the camera (at night etc.).

      8. The ambient temperature around the camera is either too high or too low.

      9. The vehicle is tilted at a steep angle.

      10. The ambient light around the camera is too bright. (When a strong light, such as a sunbeam reflected off the vehicle body, hits the camera, the image may be blurred. This is called the "SMEAR" phenomenon, peculiar to the CCD camera.)

      11. The rear television camera assembly lens is scratched.

      12. The rear television camera assembly lens has drops of water on it or the humidity is high.

      13. When the camera is used under fluorescent lights, sodium lights, or mercury lights etc., the lights and the illuminated area may appear to flicker.

  4. NOTES FOR ULTRASONIC SENSOR


    1. Under the following conditions, the detection function may not function properly:


      1. A sensor or the front bumper is not installed in the correct position.

      2. A sensor is improperly located due to damage to the front bumper.

      3. A sensor is covered with foreign matter, such as mud or snow (detection function returns to normal when the sensor is cleaned).

      4. A sensor is frozen (detection function returns to normal when the temperature of the sensor rises).

      5. A hand is blocking a sensor.

        Tech Tips


        • In very cold weather where a malfunction display appears, the sensor may not be able to detect obstacles.

        • If a sensor malfunction is detected, intelligent parking assist system DTCs will be stored Click here.

        • If the malfunction display appears, visually check the sensor first. If the sensor is free of foreign matter but the malfunction display remains, the sensor may have a malfunction.

    2. The detection range may be affected by the following conditions:

      Tech Tips

      Depending on the shape of a parked vehicle or an obstacle such as a wall or post near a parking space, the detection range may change even though the sensors are operating normally.


      1. A sensor or the front bumper is not installed in the correct position.

      2. A sensor is improperly located due to damage to the front bumper.

      3. A sensor is covered with foreign matter, such as mud or snow.

      4. The vehicle is in an excessively hot or excessively cold area.

    3. Under the following conditions, a detection error may occur:

      Tech Tips

      Depending on the shape of a parked vehicle or an obstacle such as a wall or post near a parking space, the detection range may change even though the sensors are operating normally.


      1. A sensor or the front bumper is not installed in the correct position.

      2. A sensor is improperly located due to damage to the front bumper.

      3. Driving on a bumpy road, an unpaved road or in tall grass.

      4. Ultrasonic waves are received from the horn or parking sonar system of another vehicle, a motorcycle engine, or the air brakes of a large vehicle.

      5. It is raining heavily or the sensor is splashed with water.

      6. The vehicle is tilted at a steep angle.

      7. The vehicle is equipped with a fender pole or a wireless antenna mechanism.

      8. A sensor is covered with foreign matter, such as mud or snow.

      9. The vehicle is moving forward or backward towards high curbs or objects that are perpendicular to the ground.

      10. A sensor is sprayed with high pressure water or steam.

    4. The sensors cannot detect the following objects:


      1. Thin objects, such as wires and ropes.

      2. Materials that absorb ultrasonic waves, such as cotton, snow, etc.

      3. Objects with sharp edges.

      4. Short objects.

      5. Objects that are tall and protrude toward the vehicle above the detection range of the sensors.

    5. Other notices:


      1. The sensors cannot detect objects directly under the bumper. (A sensor may detect low objects and thin poles, and then lose track of them.)

      2. Beware that the detection range of the ultrasonic sensor is limited. In certain conditions, some objects may not be detected. As a result, always make sure to check all around the vehicle when driving or parking.

      3. The sensors may not be able to detect obstacles that are too close to the sensor.

      4. The sensors may not be able to detect obstacles if the sensors have been dropped or subjected to a strong impact.
