Default parking assist not working?


i got an es350 loaner with navi and park assist. the park assist is the option that i'm looking forward to use coz my IS350 doesnt have one.

but i'm not sure why the front sensor is not giving any signal/sound when i'm parking my car. the park assist was on, the rear sensor works well, it gives sound when an object was near. but no response from the front?

Am I missing something or is it broken?

If the green light is on where the trunk release and gas door release are located, then it must be broken.

Remember, the sensors are on the corners only. It won't go off if you have an object near the front lic plate.

Try having someone walk around the car, close to the sensors, and watch the display inside the car to see if all the sensors are working. There's a sensitivity adjustment for the distance that the warning is activated.

Or, just park at an angle. I park at an angle in my garage to give me more room to open the passenger door. Sensor goes off then. If I park straight in, the sensor won't go off b/c there is no sensor in the direct front like MD350 said.
