Jeep Liberty: Parksense System Usage Precautions
вЂў Ensure that the rear bumper is free of snow, ice, mud, dirt and debris to keep the ParkSense system operating properly.
вЂў Jackhammers, large trucks, and other vibrations could affect the performance of ParkSense .
вЂў When you turn ParkSense off, the instrument cluster will display вЂњPARK ASSIST OFF.вЂќ Furthermore, once you turn ParkSense off, it remains off until you turn it on again, even if you cycle the ignition key.
вЂў When you move the shift lever to the REVERSE position and ParkSense is turned off, the instrument cluster will display вЂњPARK ASSIST OFFвЂќ message for as long as the vehicle is in REVERSE.
вЂў ParkSense , when on, will MUTE the radio when it is sounding a tone.
вЂў Clean the ParkSense sensors regularly, taking care not to scratch or damage them. The sensors must not be covered with ice, snow, slush, mud, dirt or debris.
Failure to do so can result in the system not working properly. The ParkSense system might not detect an obstacle behind the fascia/bumper, or it could provide a false indication that an obstacle is behind the fascia/ bumper.
вЂў Objects such as bicycle carriers, trailer hitches, etc., must not be placed within 12 in (30 cm) from the rear fascia/bumper while driving the vehicle. Failure to do so can result in the system misinterpreting a close object as a sensor problem, causing the вЂњSERVICE PARK ASSIST SYSTEMвЂќ message to be displayed in the EVIC.
вЂў ParkSense is only a parking aid and it is unable to recognize every obstacle, including small obstacles.
Parking curbs might be temporarily detected or not detected at all. Obstacles located above or below the sensors will not be detected when they are in close proximity.
вЂў The vehicle must be driven slowly when using ParkSense in order to be able to stop in time when an obstacle is detected. It is recommended that the driver looks over his/her shoulder when using ParkSense .
вЂў Drivers must be careful when backing up even when using the ParkSense Rear Park Assist System.
Always check carefully behind your vehicle, look behind you, and be sure to check for pedestrians, animals, other vehicles, obstructions, and blind spots before backing up. You are responsible for safety and must continue to pay attention to your surroundings. Failure to do so can result in serious injury or death.
вЂў Before using the ParkSense Rear Park Assist System, it is strongly recommended that the ball mount and hitch ball assembly is disconnected from the vehicle when the vehicle is not used for towing. Failure to do so can result in injury or damage to vehicles or obstacles because the hitch ball will be much closer to the obstacle than the rear fascia when the warning display turns on the single flashing arc and sounds the continuous tone. Also, the sensors could detect the ball mount and hitch ball assembly, depending on its size and shape, giving a false indication that an obstacle is behind the vehicle.
