While the (optional) active park assist (APA) system on your car provides you with automated assistance for parallel parking, there may be times that you need to cancel the procedure. Don’t worry – it’s easy. Use any of these methods:

  • Press the APA button again
  • Grab the steering wheel during automated parking
  • Accelerate over 6 MPH
  • Turn off the traction control system
  • Open any door but the driver front

Tips

  • If the warning “Active park fault” is displayed in your message center, have the system inspected.

  • Don’t use the active park assist system if you have anything attached to the front or rear bumpers or if the sensors are damaged.

  • Don’t use the APA system if you have the spare tire on.
