Ford Fusion: Active Park Assist (IF EQUIPPED) / Parallel Parking

The system detects available parallel parking spaces and steers your vehicle into the space. You control the accelerator, gearshift and brakes. The system visually and audibly guides you into a parallel parking space.

Ford Fusion. Parallel Parking Press the button once to search for a parking space.

Note: You can also switch the system on after you have already driven partially or completely past a parking space. Press the active park assist button and the system informs you if you have recently passed a suitable parking space.

When the vehicle speed is less than 22 mph (35 km/h), the system scans both sides of your vehicle for an available parking space. A message and a graphic appear in the information display to indicate the system is searching for a parking space. Use the direction indicator lever to search for a parking space on the driver or passenger side of your vehicle.

Note: The system scans both sides of your vehicle and offers parking spaces one side at a time if you do not use the direction indicator.

Note: The system defaults to the passenger side if you do not use the direction indicator.

Ford Fusion. Parallel Parking

Drive your vehicle approximately 3 ft (1 m) and parallel to the other parked vehicles when searching for a parking space.

Note: If you drive your vehicle less than 2 ft (0.5 m) or greater than 5 ft (1.5 m) away from other parked vehicles, the system may not be able to detect an available parking space.

When the system detects a suitable space, a message displays and a tone sounds. Stop your vehicle and follow the onscreen instructions. If your vehicle is moving very slowly, you may have to move forward a short distance before the system is ready to park.

Note: You must observe that the space the system selects remains clear of obstructions at all times during the maneuver.

Note: The system always offers the last parking space it detects. For example, if your vehicle detects multiple spaces when you are driving, it offers the last one.

Note: If the vehicle speed is greater than approximately 22 mph (35 km/h), the system shows a message to instruct you to reduce the vehicle speed.
