Audi A4: Park assist

General information

Applies to: vehicles with park assist

The park assist helps you when parking and exiting parking spaces after the parking space search. The park assist takes over the steering of the vehicle while the driver accelerates, brakes, and monitors the vehicle's surroundings. Park assist can be interrupted at any time.

WARNING

  • Observe the safety precautions and note the limits of the assist systems, sensors, and cameras.
  • The driver is always responsible when entering or exiting a parking space and during similar maneuvers.
  • Do not use this function if the vehicle cannot move freely, for example when on a vehicle jack.
  • Sensors and cameras have spots in which the surrounding area cannot be detected.

    Objects, animals, and people may only be detected with limitations may not be detected at all. Always monitor the traffic and the vehicle's surroundings directly and do not become distracted.

Note

  • Do not use the park assist systems when transporting cargo that extends out of the vehicle, when snow chains are mounted, or when the parking space is on a hill or incline.
  • Park assist guides the vehicle either away from curbs or onto them if other vehicles are parked on the curb. Make sure that your vehicle's tires and rims are not damaged.

    Resume control of the vehicle in time or stop the process of parking or exiting the parking space.

Tips

Follow the legal regulations in the country where you are located when using Park assist.

Parking with the park assists

Applies to: vehicles with park assist

Requirement: a suitable parking space must be found and selected. The vehicle must initially be stationary.

In the center display, arrows and symbols on the vehicle roof (2) fig. 134 indicate what action is needed, such as applying the brakes or changing the direction. Park assist automatically steers the vehicle into the parking space while the driver presses the pedals.

  • After stopping the vehicle briefly, make sure the actual direction the vehicle is traveling matches the direction indicated by the park assist.
  • Remove your hands from the steering wheel.
  • Pay attention to the path of the vehicle. If the traffic situation permits, accelerate carefully. The maximum parking speed is approximately 4 mph (7 km/h).
  • Follow the visual instructions in the center display and the warning tones until the parking process has ended.

WARNING

  • Observe the safety precautions and note the limits of the assist systems, sensors, and cameras.
  • The park assist is an assist system. The driver is still responsible for monitoring the vehicle's surroundings and preventing collisions when using the system.
  • When using park assist to drive into or out of a parking space, the steering wheel turns quickly on its own. Reaching into the steering wheel spokes while this is happening can result in injury.

Tips

You can also cancel the driving direction set by the system by shifting between a forward gear and reverse gear. Based on the position of the vehicle, the system then calculates the additional steering and driving directions for maneuvering.

Exiting parking spaces with park assist

Applies to: vehicles with park assist

If you parked the vehicle in a parallel parking space, park assist can help you drive out of it.

In the center display, arrows and symbols on the vehicle roof (2), fig. 134 indicate what action is needed, such as applying the brakes or changing the direction. Park assist automatically steers the vehicle out of the parking space while the driver presses the pedals.

  • Start the engine.
  • Press the button in the center console.
  • Wait until a message appears in the center display that specifies the direction of travel required to exit the parking space.
  • Activate the turn signal on the desired side or, depending on vehicle equipment, press that side next to the vehicle in the center display.
  • Make sure the actual direction the vehicle is traveling matches the direction indicated by the park assist.
  • Remove your hands from the steering wheel.
  • Pay attention to the path of the vehicle. If the traffic situation permits, accelerate carefully. The maximum speed for exiting a parking space is 3 mph (5 km/h).
  • Follow the visual instructions in the display and the warning tones until the vehicle has finished exiting the parking space.
  • The process of exiting the parking space has ended if additional corrective movements are no longer necessary and the specified steering wheel angle is sufficient to drive out of the parking space. Resume control of the steering wheel.

WARNING

  • Observe the safety precautions and note the limits of the assist systems, sensors, and cameras.
  • The park assist is an assist system. The driver is still responsible for monitoring the vehicle's surroundings and preventing collisions when using the system.
  • When using park assist to drive into or out of a parking space, the steering wheel turns quickly on its own. Reaching into the steering wheel spokes while this is happening can result in injury.

Note

Resume steering immediately after the last corrective movement and the takeover prompt, so that the specified steering wheel angle is not recentered.

  • You switch the system off.
  • You start steering.
  • The speed is too high.
