DS 3: DS PARK PILOT / Operating limits. Malfunctions

DS 3 2016-2023 Owners Manual

  • The system may suggest an inappropriate parking space (parking prohibited, work in progress with damaged road surface, location alongside a ditch, etc.).
  • The system may indicate that a space has been found but will not offer it because of a fixed obstacle on the opposite side of the manoeuvre, which does not allow the vehicle to follow the trajectory required for parking.
  • The system may indicate that a space has been found but the manoeuvre will not be triggered because the width of the lane is insufficient.
  • The system is not designed to perform parking manoeuvres on a steep slope or on a sharp curve.
  • The system does not detect spaces that are much larger than the vehicle itself or that are delimited by obstacles that are too low (pavements, studs, etc.) or too thin (trees, posts, wire fences, etc.).
  • The system may be impaired by incorrect inflation of the vehicle’s tyres.
  • The tilting of the vehicle if the boot is heavily loaded can affect the distance measurements.
