2007 Volvo V70
The audio system's volume will be reduced.
An intermittent signal will be audible from the speakers to indicate that you are approaching a person,
object, parked vehicle, etc. The signals begin when the distance between the bumper and the object is:
Rear: approximately 5 feet (1.5 meters)
Front: approximately 2.5 ft (0.8 meters)
At a distance of approximately 1 foot (30 cm), the signal will become constant. If objects are close to
both the front and rear bumpers, the signal will alternate between the front and rear speakers.
Deactivating the system(s)
- Press the Park assist button on the center console (see
) to temporarily deactivate the system(s).
- The indicator light in the button will go out when the system(s) have been deactivated.
- If the vehicle is equipped with front and rear park assist, both systems will be deactivated by pressing
Park assist will be automatically reactivated the next time the engine is started.
NOTE: It may be necessary to deactivate one or both of the park assist systems in certain cases.
Rear park assist: towing a trailer, carrying bicycles in a rear-mounted carrier, etc, could trigger the
rear park assist system's sensors.
Front park assist: it may not be possible to combine auxiliary headlights and front park assist since
these lights could trigger the system's sensors.

Faults in the system
If the yellow warning symbol illuminates and a message is shown in the information display, the
system is not functioning properly. Consult a Volvo retailer or authorized service technician.
Cleaning the sensors
For the system to function properly, the sensors in the front and/or rear bumpers should be kept clean.
They can be cleaned with car washing detergent and a sponge.
These systems are designed to be a supplementary aid when parking the vehicle. They are not,
however, intended to replace the driver's attention and judgement.
