Note: The warning unit has a High/Low switch for volume control. ● HOW TO USE System Startup Reverse Parking System The system is fully automatic. It is active only when the vehicle is placed in reverse. At system power-up (Vehicle ignition on, in reverse), you will hear a short, half-second ‘beep’. Diagnostics After the system is turned on, the Park-Pro HD will go into a self diagnostic mode for three seconds. Electronic Control Unit (ECU) If, after three seconds a sensor malfunction is detected, Detection Units - Ultrasonic Sensors the warning unit will warn you of a fault. The system will still Warning Unit operate, When the vehicle is placed in reverse, the warning unit troubleshooting section for explanation of diagnostics but may not function normally. (See 3 Parking Sensor System function.) Note: Sensors must be installed in order of serial number. If not, the diagnostic function may reference the wrong sensor. See Fig.2. Warning Mode See Fig.3 for the three detection zones. Audible Warning: System beeps when an obstacle appears within the Warning zones, shown in Diagram 2. 4 Parking Sensor System Diagram-2 Warning Unit AUDIBLE WARNING MODE FOR REAR DETECTION This unit warns you with a built-in buzzer, enabling you to WARNING DISTANCE AUDIBLE WARNING know the warning zone and distance to the obstacle.

Always use caution during any vehicle operation. 6 Parking Sensor System Precautions When this system is working, the reverse speed must be under 5km/h (3 mph). Keep sensors clean. Remove dirt, ice or snow for proper operation. Make sure that sensors are mounted securely in the correct position. When sensors are found defective, they should be replaced immediately. After installation, testing should be conducted to verify proper operation before use. ● INSTALLATION It is recommended this system be installed by a trained · The kit includes two drill bits, electrical connectors, double-sided adhesive tape. In addition a file, flat head screwdriver, Philips head screwdriver and a pair of pliers will be required. installation professional. Installation Tools The tools listed in Fig.10 are required for installation. 7 Parking Sensor System Where to Install Installation Procedure General Layout Sensor Installation Component Connection Power Connection Parts Inspection Test General layout Determine where to install the ECU and warning unit according to the layout of your vehicle. Make sure the power cable of the ECU can be easily connected. Sensor installation For details, refer to “Tips on Sensor Installation” on page 10. Component Connection Fig.11 gives a general layout showing where to install the See Fig.12 for the connection between components of components of the reverse parking system. reverse parking system. 8 Parking Sensor System Powering up For details, refer to “Powering up” on page 12. Test For details, refer to “Test the System” on page 13. Note: Sensors and trunk harness connectors are serialized and must be connected in position and order as shown in Fig.2; otherwise the diagnostic function will reference the wrong sensor. Tips on Sensor Installation Width of different vehicle models varies; it is very Control unit important to choose the correct locations to install sensors.

(An M2/.079” drill bit can be used to drill pilot holes to aid in this See Fig.14, “L” is the width of vehicle. L1 is the horizontal process.) · Remove the burrs from the hole edge with a file. · Insert the sensor cables into the holes made in bumper according to serial number. Refer to Fig.2 IMPORTANT Use correct hole saw. Sensors may not function properly with holes that are too small or too large in diameter. Plastic bumpers require the 21.5mm hole saw. 10 Parking Sensor System Plastic bumpers do not require the rubber sleeves included in kit. Metal bumpers require the 24.5mm drill. Metal · Insert the rubber sleeves into the brackets. · Insert the sensor cables into the holes made in bumper according to serial number.
