automatic steering. The steering wheel will vibrate briefly as a reminder to

remove hands from the steering wheel. APA uses idle speed and

braking to park. If idle speed is not

sufficient, gently press the accelerator.

maximum of 5 km/h (3 mph) during the parking maneuver.

A progress arrow displays the status of the parking maneuver. Depending on the space size, additional

maneuvers may be required, and there will be additional instructions. When

changing gears, allow the automatic

steering to complete before continuing the parking maneuver. APA will beep

and display a PARKING COMPLETE message. Apply the brakes and place the vehicle in P (Park).

. There is a failure with the APA system

. Electronic stability control or antilock brakes are activated

. A high priority vehicle message is displayed in the DIC
