INFORMATION

Settings (e.g. buzzer volume) can be changed.

Detection range of the sensors

1. Approximately 2.0 ft. (60 cm)

1. Approximately 2.0 ft. (60 cm)

2. Approximately 1.8 ft. (55 cm)

3. Approximately 4.9 ft. (150 cm)

4. Approximately 3.3 ft. (100 cm)

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

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

Sensor detection information

Certain vehicle conditions and the surrounding environment may affect the ability of a sensor to correctly detect an obstacle. Particular instances where this may occur are listed below.

There is dirt, snow or ice on a sensor.

A sensor is frozen.

A sensor is covered in any way.

The vehicle is leaning considerably to one side.

On an extremely bumpy road, on an incline, on gravel, or on grass.

The vicinity of the vehicle is noisy due to vehicle horns, motorcycle engines, air brakes of large vehicles, or other loud noises producing ultrasonic waves.

There is another vehicle equipped with parking assist sensors in the vicinity.

A sensor is coated with a sheet of spray or heavy rain.

The vehicle is equipped with a fender pole or radio antenna.

Towing eyelets are installed.

A bumper or sensor receives a strong impact.

The vehicle is approaching a tall or right−angled curb.

In harsh sunlight or intense cold weather.

A non−genuine Lexus suspension (lowered suspension, etc.) is installed.

In addition to the examples above, there are instances in which, because of their shapes, signs and other objects may be judged by a sensor to be closer than they are.

The shape of the obstacle may prevent a sensor from detecting it. Pay particular attention to the following obstacles:

Wires, fences, ropes, etc.

Cotton, snow and other materials that absorb sound waves

Sharply−angled objects

Low obstacles

Tall obstacles with upper sections projecting outwards in the direction of your vehicle

CAUTION

Caution 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.

Do not use the sensor at speeds in excess of approximately 6 mph (10 km/h).

Do not attach any accessories within the sensor range.

Even though sensors which are functioning properly continue to detect obstacles, never use the intuitive parking assist if one or more sensor(s) may be malfunctioning.

NOTICE

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

Doing so may result in the sensor malfunctioning.

As the intuitive parking assist might be malfunctioning in the following cases, have it checked by your Lexus dealer.

The graphic which indicates that an obstacle has been detected does not come on and a beep does not sound even when the intuitive parking assist mode is turned on.

The graphic which indicates that an obstacle has been detected comes on despite no obstacle around the vehicle.

If your vehicle has been involved in an accident.

If the graphic which indicates that an obstacle has been detected remains on without a beeping sound.

Intuitive parking assist failure warning

If an error is detected when the intuitive parking assist is turned on, the vehicle symbol comes on or flashes with beeping sounds.

The intuitive parking assist failure warning display is not given in either of the following operations:

Changing to another screen

Turning the ituitive parking assist mode off

When snowflakes or mud gets on the sensors

If this message appears, remove the foreign matter from the sensor.

If this message appears, remove the foreign matter from the sensor.

If the failure warning does not go off even after the foreign matter is removed, the intuitive parking assist may be malfunctioning.

Have it checked by your Lexus dealer.

When the sensor is malfunctioning
