Toyota Tundra Owners Manual: Intuitive parking assist

The distance from your vehicle to nearby obstacles when parallel parking or maneuvering into a garage is measured by the sensors and communicated via the multi-information display and buzzer. Always check the surrounding area when using this system.

■ Types of sensors

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

■ Intuitive parking assist switch

Turns the intuitive parking assist on/off

When on, the indicator light comes on to inform the driver that the system is operational.

Using the driving support systems

The distance display and buzzer

When the sensor detects an obstacle, the direction of and the approximate distance to the obstacle are displayed and the buzzer sounds.

■ Intuitive parking assist display

  1. Front corner sensor operation
  2. Rear corner sensor operation
  3. Rear center sensor operation

■ Sensor operation and distance to an obstacle The system operates when the vehicle approaches an obstacle, as shown by the following table.

When 2 or more obstacles are detected simultaneously, the buzzer system responds to the nearest zone.

■ When multiple obstacles are detected in front and behind the vehicle at the same time The buzzer will change in the following manner.

  • If an obstacle has been detected within 1.5 ft. (45 cm) of the front or 2.8 ft. (85 cm) in rear of the vehicle (a continuous buzzer is sounding), and a new obstacle is detected at the other end of the vehicle, the buzzer will sound 7 times then 1 continuous buzzer.
  • If an obstacle has been detected within 1.5 ft. (45 cm) of the front or 2.8 ft. (85 cm) in rear of the vehicle (a continuous buzzer is sounding), and a new obstacle is detected in the same way at the other end of the vehicle, the buzzer will sound 3 times then 1 continuous buzzer.

■ Detection range of the sensors

  1. Approximately 5.9 ft. (180 cm)
  2. Approximately 2.0 ft. (60 cm)
  3. Approximately 2.8 ft. (85 cm)

The diagram shows the detection range of the sensors. Note that the sensors may not be able to detect obstacles that are extremely close to the vehicle.

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

■The intuitive parking assist can be operated when

  • Front corner sensors:
    • The engine switch is in the "ON" position.
    • The shift lever is in R.
    • The shift lever is not in P or R and vehicle speed is less than about 6 mph (10 km/h).
  • Rear corner and rear center sensors:
    • The engine switch is in the "ON" position.
    • The shift lever is in R

■Certification (Canada only) This ISM device complies with Canadian ICES-001.

WARNING

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

Failure 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 6 mph (10 km/h).
  • The sensors' detection areas and reaction times are limited. When moving forward or reversing, check the areas surrounding the vehicle (especially the sides of the vehicle) for safety, and drive slowly, using the brake to control the vehicle's speed.
  • Do not install accessories within the sensors' detection areas.

 

WARNING

■Sensor detection information Pay particular attention to the following instances in where this may occur.

Failing to do so way result in the vehicle being unable to be driven or parked safety and possibly cause an accident.

  • The sensor's detection areas are limited to the areas around the vehicle's front corner and rear bumpers.
  • Certain vehicle conditions and the surrounding environment may affect the ability of the sensor to correctly detect obstacles. Particular instances where this may occur are listed below.
    • There is dirt, snow or ice on the sensor. (Wiping the sensors will resolve this problem.)
    • The sensor is frozen. (Thawing the area will resolve this problem.)
    • The 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.
    • The sensor is coated with a sheet of spray or heavy rain.
    • The vehicle is equipped with a fender pole or radio antenna.
    • The bumper or sensor receives a strong impact.
    • The vehicle is approaching a tall or curved curb.
    • In harsh sunlight or intense cold weather.
    • The area directly under the bumpers is not detected.
    • If obstacles draw too close to the sensor.
    • A non-genuine Toyota suspension (lowered suspension, etc.) is installed.
    • A backlit license plate, license plate holder, etc., are installed.
    • People may not be detected if they are wearing certain types and coloring of clothing.
    • People, animals, and moving objects may not be able to be detected.

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

 

WARNING
  • The shape of the obstacle may prevent the 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
  • The following situations may occur during use.
    • Depending on the shape of the obstacle and other factors, the detection distance may shorten, or detection may be impossible.
    • Obstacles may not be detected if they are too close to the sensor.
    • There will be a short delay between obstacle detection and display.

      Even at slow speeds, there is a possibility that the obstacle will come within the sensor's detection areas before the display is shown and the warning beep sounds.

    • Thin posts or objects lower than the sensor may not be detected for collision when approached, even if they have been detected once.
    • It might be difficult to hear beeps due to the volume of audio system or air flow noise of air conditioning system.

 

NOTICE

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

  • A beep does not sound when you turn the main switch on.
  • The intuitive parking assist operation display flashes, and a beep sounds when no obstacles are detected.
  • If the area around a sensor collides with something, or is subjected to strong impact.
  • If the bumper collides with something.
  • If the display shows continuously without a beep.
  • If a display error occurs, first check the sensor.

    If the error occurs even if there is no ice, snow or mud on the sensor, it is likely that the sensor is malfunctioning.

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.
