Mazda 2: Parking Sensor System

The parking sensor system uses ultrasonic sensors to detect obstructions around the vehicle while parking the vehicle in a garage or during parallel parking when the shift lever is in reverse (R). The system is equipped with an assist device to notify the driver of the approximate distance from the vehicle to the surrounding obstruction using a beep sound.

Parking Sensor System


WARNING

Do not rely completely on the parking sensor system and be sure to confi rm the safety around your vehicle visually when driving.

This system can assist the driver in operating the vehicle in the forward and backward directions while parking. The detection ranges of the sensors are limited, therefore, driving the vehicle while relying only on the system may cause an accident. Always confi rm the safety around your vehicle visually when driving.

NOTE

Do not install any accessories within the detection ranges of the sensors. It may affect the system operation.

Depending on the type of obstruction and the surrounding conditions, the detection range of a sensor may narrow, or the sensors may not be able to detect obstructions.

The system may not operate normally under the following conditions:

Obstructions under the bumper may not be detected. Obstructions that are lower than the bumper or thin which may have been initially detected but are no longer detected as the vehicle approaches more closely

The following types of obstructions may not be detected:

Always have the system inspected at an expert repairer, we recommend an Authorised Mazda Repairer if any shock is applied to the bumpers, even in a minor accident. If the sensors are deviated, they cannot detect obstructions.

The system may have a malfunction if the beep does not operate. Consult an expert repairer, we recommend an Authorised Mazda Repairer.

The beeper which indicates a system malfunction may not be heard if the ambient temperature is extremely cold, or mud, ice, or snow adheres to the sensor area.

Remove any foreign material from the sensor area.

When installing a trailer hitch, consult an expert repairer, we recommend an Authorised Mazda Repairer.

Sensor Detection Range

The sensors detect obstructions within the following range.

NOTE

If an obstruction is detected in a zone for 6 seconds or more, the beep sound is stopped (except for the close-distance zone). If the same obstruction is detected in another zone, the corresponding beep sound is heard.

When Warning Beep is Activated

The system notifi es the driver of an abnormality by activating the beep sound and the indicator light.

Indicator/Beep How to check
The beep sound is not heard. The system may have a malfunction. Have the vehicle inspected at an expert repairer, we recommend an Authorised Mazda Repairer as soon as possible.
The intermittent sound of the buzzer is heard fi ve times. Remove any foreign material from the sensor area. If the system does not recover, have the vehicle inspected at an expert repairer, we recommend an Authorised Mazda Repairer.
