Chevrolet Blazer 2023 Park Assist User Guide
The vehicle may be equipped with Rear Park Assist (RPA). Under certain conditions, the Park Assist system can assist the driver during backing and reverse parking maneuvers when the vehicle is driven at no more than 9 km/h (6 mph). An illuminated indicator in the Park Assist button indicates the system is ready. An illuminated indicator in the Park Assist button indicates the system is ready.
Sensors located in the bumpers measure the distance between the vehicle and objects using sonar technology. These sensors are designed to detect certain objects up to 2.5 m (8 ft) behind your vehicle that are taller than 25 cm (10 in). Different environmental conditions may affect whether and how far the Park Assist system can detect objects. Keep the sensors clean of mud, dirt, snow, ice, and slush; and clean sensors after a car wash in freezing temperatures. Sensors that are not clean may not detect objects or may cause the system to alert when not required.
The Park Assist System is no substitute for careful and attentive driving. The Park Assist system does not detect children, pedestrians, bicyclists, animals, or objects located below the bumper or that are too close or too far from the vehicle. It is not available at speeds greater than 9 km/h (6 mph). To prevent injury, death, or vehicle damage, even with Park Assist, always check the area around the vehicle and check all mirrors before moving forward or backing.
How the System Works
The vehicle may have a Park Assist amphitheater-like display on the cluster with bars that represent the estimated location of a detected object and the vehicle’s distance from the object. As a detected object becomes closer, more bars light up and change color from yellow to amber to red.
When an object is first detected in the rear, one beep will be heard from the rear, or the driver’s seat will pulse two times,
if equipped with Safety Alert Seat. When an object is very close, five beeps will sound from the rear, or the driver’s seat will pulse five times.
Turning the System On and Off
The Park Assist System can be turned on or off using the infotainment system. To view available settings for this feature, touch the Settings icon on the infotainment home page. Select “Vehicle” to display the list of available options and select “Collision/Detection Systems”.
The X button is used to turn on or off the Park Assist, which also turns on or off the Backing Warning and Reverse Automatic Braking (RAB) at the same time. When the system is turned off, a system off message is shown on the display. This message disappears after a short period of time.
Turn off Park Assist when towing a trailer to prevent unwanted beeps and when a bike rack is attached to ensure proper operation.
When the System Does Not Seem to Work Properly
If a service message displays, check the following conditions:
- The sensors may not be clean. Keep the vehicle’s front and rear bumpers free of mud, dirt, snow, ice, and slush. For cleaning instructions, see Exterior Care 0 307.
- The Park Assist sensors may be covered by frost or ice. Frost or ice can form around and behind the sensors and may not always be seen; this can occur after washing the vehicle in cold weather. The message may not clear until the frost or ice has melted.
If a service message displays and the above conditions do not exist, take the vehicle to your dealer for repairs.
If the Park Assist System does not activate due to a temporary condition, a system off message is shown on the display.
This can occur under the following conditions:
- The driver has disabled the system.
- An object is currently blocking the rear sensors (for example, bike rack, tailgate, trailer hitch, etc.). Once the object is removed, Park Assist will return to normal operation.
- The bumper is damaged. Take the vehicle to your dealer for repairs.
- Other conditions, such as vibrations from a jackhammer or the compression of air brakes on a very large truck, are affecting system performance.
Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) System
If equipped, Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) displays a red warning triangle with a left or right pointing arrow on the infotainment display to warn of traffic coming from the left or right. This system detects objects coming from up to 20 m (65 ft) from the left or right side of the vehicle. When an object
is detected, either three beeps sound from the left or right or three Safety Alert Seat pulses occur on the left or right side, depending on the direction of the detected vehicle.
Driving With a Trailer
Use caution while backing up when towing a trailer. The RCTA feature is automatically disabled when a trailer is attached to the vehicle.
Turning the Features On or Off
The X button on the center console is used to turn on or off Rear Park Assist (RPA) and RCTA at the same time. The indicator light in the button comes on when the features are on and turns off when the features have been disabled.
RCTA can be turned on or off using the infotainment system. To view available settings for this feature, touch the Settings icon on the infotainment home page. Select “Vehicle” to display the list of available options and select “Collision/Detection Systems”.
