warns drivers of obstacles by sounding an alarm.
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,

 An unusual reflection angle of obstacles may cause an
incorrect or unusual detection warning.
Refer to Fig.4 below: Point A may not be detected due to unsatisfactory
reflection angle.
Remark: When obstacles appear behind the 2 rear side sensors (serial
numbers 1 and 4), system doesn’t beep unless the obstacles are within
the Caution and Danger zones.

 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.
