How to use parking assist on an Infiniti Q50?

The parking assist feature in an Infiniti Q50, also known as the parking sensor system, helps you navigate and park your vehicle more easily by providing visual and audible alerts as you approach obstacles. Here’s a general guideline on how to use the parking assist feature, but please note that the exact steps and features may vary based on the model year and trim level of your vehicle:

  1. Activate the Parking Assist: Parking assist is usually activated automatically when you shift your vehicle into reverse gear. This is the mode where the parking sensors become active and start detecting obstacles.
  2. Visual and Audible Alerts: As you approach obstacles while reversing, the parking sensor system will provide visual and audible alerts to inform you about the distance between your vehicle and the detected obstacles. The alerts become more frequent and intense as you get closer to an obstacle.
  3. Use the Infotainment System Display: Some Infiniti Q50 models have an infotainment display that shows the vehicle’s proximity to obstacles. This display might use color-coded bars or other visual cues to indicate how close you are to an obstacle.
  4. Pay Attention to the Audible Alerts: The parking sensor system will emit audible beeps that increase in frequency as you approach an obstacle. This audio feedback helps you gauge the distance between your vehicle and the obstacle.
  5. React to Alerts: As you hear the audible alerts and see the visual cues, use this information to adjust your steering, speed, and braking to safely park your vehicle and avoid collisions.
  6. Deactivating Parking Assist: Parking assist usually turns off automatically when you shift out of reverse gear and into another gear (such as drive). However, some vehicles may allow you to manually deactivate the parking sensor system through the infotainment or vehicle settings menu.
  7. Maintain Situational Awareness: While parking assist is helpful, it’s important to remember that it’s not a substitute for careful driving and situational awareness. Always use your mirrors and look around your vehicle to ensure there are no obstacles that the sensors might not detect.

Please consult your vehicle’s owner’s manual for specific instructions and information regarding the parking assist feature in your Infiniti Q50. Parking assist features and functionalities can vary between different model years and trim levels. If you’re unsure about how to use the parking assist system in your specific vehicle, contacting your local Infiniti dealership for assistance is recommended.
