Parking Sensor System

*

Parking Sensor System

The parking sensors use ultrasonic sensors which detect obstructions around the
vehicle when the vehicle is driven at low speeds, such as during garage or parallel
parking, and a buzzer sound and detection indicator notify the driver of the
approximate distance from the vehicle to the surrounding obstruction.

WARNING

Do not rely completely on the parking sensor system and be sure to confirm the
safety around your vehicle visually when driving:

This system can assist the driver in operating the vehicle in the forward and
backward directions while parking. The detection ranges of the sensors are limited,
therefore, driving the vehicle while relying only on the system may cause an
accident. Always confirm the safety around your vehicle visually when driving.

CAUTION

¾

Do not install any accessories within the detection ranges of the sensors. It may
affect the system operation.

¾

Depending on the type of obstruction and the surrounding conditions, the
detection range of a sensor may narrow, or the sensors may not be able to detect
obstructions.

¾

When washing the vehicle, do not spray highly pressurized water against the
sensor area, or rub it strongly. Otherwise, it may not be able to detect obstructions
correctly and the system may not operate normally.

NOTE

x

When the ignition is switched OFF, the system status before it was turned off is
maintained. For example, if the ignition is switched OFF while the parking sensor
is activated, the system will be activated when the ignition is switched ON the
next time.

x

The system may not operate normally under the following conditions:

x

Mud, ice, or snow is adhering to the sensor area (Returns to normal operation
when removed).

x

The sensor area is frozen (Returns to normal operation when the ice is thawed).

x

The sensor is covered by a hand.

x

The sensor is excessively shocked.

x

The vehicle is excessively tilted.

x

Under extremely hot or cold weather conditions.

x

The vehicle is driven on bumps, inclines, gravel, grating, or grass covered roads.

*Some models.

x

Anything which generates ultrasonic waves such as another vehicle's horn, the
engine sound of a motorcycle, the air brake sound of a large-sized vehicle, or
another vehicle's sensors approaches the vehicle.

x

The vehicle is driven in heavy rain or in road conditions causing water-splash.

x

A commercially-available fender pole or an antenna for a radio transmitter is
installed to the vehicle.

x

The vehicle is moving towards a tall or square curbstone, or a steep grade.

x

An obstruction is too close to the sensor.

x

The vehicle is moving towards an uneven wall or stairs.

x

There are multiple obstructions.

x

The vehicle is driven in a place with low ceilings.

x

Obstructions under the bumper cannot be detected. Obstructions which are
lower than the sensor or thin may not be detected even though they were
detected once.

x

The following types of obstructions may not be detected:

x

Thin objects such as wire, rope or poles

x

Things which absorb sonic waves easily such as cotton or snow

x

Angular shaped objects

x

Very tall objects, and those which are wide at the top

x

Small, short objects

x

Always have the system inspected at an Authorized Mazda Dealer if any shock is
applied to the bumpers, even in a minor accident. If the sensors are deviated, they
cannot detect obstructions.

x

The system may have a malfunction if a sound is not activated or the detection
indication is not displayed even when the parking sensor OFF switch is pressed
and the parking sensor is operable. Have your vehicle inspected by an Authorized
Mazda Dealer.

x

The system may have a malfunction if the indicator light does not turn on even
when the parking sensor OFF switch is turned on. Have your vehicle inspected by
an Authorized Mazda Dealer.

x

The system may have a malfunction if a message indicating a system malfunction is
displayed. Have your vehicle inspected by an Authorized Mazda Dealer.

x

A message may be displayed even when the ambient temperature is extremely
cold, or mud, ice, or snow adheres to the sensor area. Remove any foreign matter
from the sensor area.

x

When installing a trailer hitch, consult an Authorized Mazda Dealer.

x

If a Mazda genuine trailer hitch is used, the rear side of the parking sensor system
is automatically turned off.

(Vehicles with 360° View Monitor)

When the detection indicator is set to “Display”, even with the 360° view monitor
not displayed, if a front sensor or a front corner sensor detects an obstruction, the
360° view monitor switches automatically to display. When an obstruction is no
longer detected, the display switches to the display before the obstruction was
detected.
However, while the 360° view monitor is displayed, it continues to display no
matter if an obstruction is detected or not.

x

If an obstruction in the same area excluding the close area is detected
continuously for 6 seconds or longer, only the warning beeps stop activating.
(Detection is indicated) If the detection area changes to the close side, the
warning beeps resumes. (If the detection area changes to the far side, the warning
beeps remain off)

Operating Tips

Operating Tips

x

Operate the climate control system
with the engine running.

x

To prevent the battery from being
discharged, do not leave the fan
control switch on for a long period of
time with the ignition switched ON
when the engine is not running.

x

Clear all obstructions such as leaves,
snow and ice from the hood and the
air inlet in the cowl grille to improve
the system efficiency.

x

Use the climate control system to
defog the windows and dehumidify
the air.

x

The recirculate mode should be used
when driving through tunnels or
while in a traffic jam, or when you
would like to shut off outside air for
quick cooling of the interior.

x

Use the outside air position for
ventilation or windshield defrosting.

x

If the vehicle has been parked in
direct sunlight during hot weather,
open the windows to let warm air
escape, then run the climate control
system.

x

Run the air conditioner about 10
minutes at least once a month to
keep internal parts lubricated.

x

Have the air conditioner checked
before the weather gets hot. Lack of
refrigerant may make the air
conditioner less efficient.
The refrigerant specifications are
indicated on a label attached to the
inside of the engine compartment. If
the wrong type of refrigerant is used,
it could result in a serious
malfunction of the air conditioner.
Consult a professional, government
certified repairer for the inspection
or repair because a special device is

required for the air conditioner
maintenance.
For details, consult an Authorized
Mazda Dealer.
