ParkAssist is ready for operation again when the interference has been eliminated.

In the event of a permanent fault in ParkAssist, a continuous tone sounds for three seconds after reverse gear has been selected.

Possible causes:

  1. Dirt, ice or snow on the sensors.
  • Clean the sensors carefully.
  1. Defect or system fault.
  • Have the fault corrected at an authorized Porsche dealer.

Towing a trailer
The ParkAssist rear monitoring area is switched off when the trailer's power supply is plugged in.

Rearview Camera

Rearview Camera
The rearview camera is not a safety device. It serves only to assist the driver in identifying objects directly behind the middle of the vehicle.

The camera does NOT cover the complete area behind the vehicle. While the camera's display is generally accurate, objects can be much closer than they appear in the display screen and can be distorted in both size and proportion.

Backing Up and Using Camera

  • Never rely solely on the rearview camera when backing up. You must always use methods of viewing the area behind you, including looking over both shoulders as well as continuously checking all three rearview mirrors. Due to the difficulty of insuring that the area behind you remains clear, always backup slowly and stop immediately if you even suspect that a person, and especially a child, might be behind you.

The rearview camera is located on the underside of the tailgate.

  • Please refer to the chapter "REARVIEW CAMERA" in the separate PCM/CDR operating instructions.
  • Always keep the rearview camera clean and free of ice and snow so that vision is not impaired.

For car care instructions:

  • Please see the chapter "CAR CARE INSTRUCTIONS" on page 272.
