Faults in the system
If the information symbol illuminates and

Park assist syst Service required

 is shown

on the information display, this indicates that

the system is not functioning properly and

has been disengaged. Consult a trained and

qualified Volvo service technician.

CAUTION

In certain circumstances, the park assist

system may give unexpected warning sig-

nals that can be caused by external sound

sources that use the same ultrasound fre-

quencies as the system. This may include

such things as the horns of other vehicles,

wet tires on asphalt, pneumatic brakes,

motorcycle exhaust pipes, etc. This does

not indicate a fault in the system.

Rear Park Assist Camera (PAC) –

introduction

The Park Assist Camera is designed to pro-

vide the driver with a view of the area behind

the vehicle when backing up.

Introduction
PAC uses the display in the center console to

show the area behind the car while you are

backing up.
PAC also shows guiding lines in the on-

screen image to indicate the direction that the

vehicle will take as it moves rearward, which

helps simplify parallel parking, backing into a

tight space or when attaching a trailer to the

vehicle.
The images of vehicles in this section are

generic and may not depict your specific

model.

NOTE

A trailer hitch whose wiring is integrated

with the vehicle's electrical system will be

included in the measurement of the availa-

ble space behind the vehicle.

WARNING

PAC is designed to be a supplemen-

tary aid when parking the vehicle. It is

not, however, intended to replace the

driver’s attention and judgment.

The camera has blind spots where it

cannot detect objects or people

behind the vehicle.

Pay particular attention to people or

animals that are close to the vehicle.

Objects seen on the screen may be

closer than they appear to be.

Rear Park Assist Camera (PAC) –

function

Function
The driver sees what is behind the vehicle

and if a person or animal should suddenly

appear from the side.
The camera has built-in electronics that help

reduce the “fish-eye” effect so that the image

shown on the screen is as natural as possi-

ble. This may cause some objects on the

screen to “lean,” which is normal.

Ambient lighting conditions

The camera automatically monitors the ambi-

ent lighting conditions behind the vehicle and

constantly adjusts sensitivity to light. This

may cause the brightness and quality of the

image on the screen to vary slightly. Sensitiv-

ity to light is increased in dark conditions or in

bad weather, which may affect image quality.
If the image on the screen seems too dark,

brightness can be increased with the thumb

wheel on the lighting panel.

NOTE

In order to function properly, the camera

lens should always be kept clean. This is

particularly important in bad weather.

Keep the lens free of dirt, ice or snow.

Guiding lines
The lines on the screen are projected as if

they were a path on the ground behind the

vehicle and are directly affected by the way in

which the steering wheel is turned. This ena-

bles the driver to see path the vehicle will

take, even if he/she turns the steering wheel

while backing up.

NOTE

When backing up with a trailer, the guiding

lines show the path that the vehicle will

take, not the trailer.

WARNING

Keep in mind that the image on the screen

only shows the area behind the vehicle.

The driver must always watch for people,

animals, other vehicles, etc., near the sides

of the vehicle when turning while backing

up.

WARNING

BLIS and CTA are information sys-

tems, NOT warning or safety systems

and do not function in all situations.

BLIS and CTA do not eliminate the

need for you to visually confirm the

conditions around you, and the need

for you to turn your head and should-

ers to make sure that you can safely

change lanes or back up.

As the driver, you have full responsibil-

ity for changing lanes/backing up in a

safe manner.

When does CTA function

How CTA works

CTA supplements BLIS by warning the driver

of crossing traffic behind your vehicle, for

example, when backing out of a parking

space.

It is primarily designed to detect another vehi-

cle but in certain cases may also detect

pedestrians or smaller objects such as bicy-

cles.
CTA is only activated when the vehicle is

backing up and is activated automatically

when the gear selector is put in reverse.

An audible signal indicates that CTA has

detected something that is approaching

from the side. The signal will come from

either the left or right audio system

speakers, depending on which the side of

your vehicle the approaching vehicle/

object has been detected.

CTA also provides a warning by illuminat-

ing the BLIS indicator lights.

An icon will also illuminate in the Park

assist graphic on the center console dis-

play.

Limitations
CTA has limitations in certain situations, for

example, the CTA sensors cannot "see"

through other parked vehicles or obstruc-

tions.
The following are several examples where

CTA's "field of vision" may initially be limited

and approaching vehicles cannot be detected

until they are too close:

The vehicle is pulled far into a parking space

CTA's blind area

CTA's "field of vision"

In angled parking spaces, CTA may be "blind" on

one side

However, as you back your vehicle out of a

parking space, CTA's "field of vision"

expands.

may reduce the system's function or

make it impossible to detect other vehi-

cles or objects.

Do not attach tape, decals, etc., on the

surface of the sensors (see the illustration

in the following "Maintenance" section).

BLIS and CTA are deactivated if a trailer's

wiring is connected to the vehicle's elec-

trical system.

Starting the engine

The engine can be started/switched off using

the remote key and the START/STOP

ENGINE button.

Ignition slot with remote key inserted (see Igni-

tion modes (p. 69) for more information on igni-

tion modes)

WARNING

Before starting the engine:

Fasten the seat belt.

Check that the seat, steering wheel

and mirrors are adjusted properly.

Make sure the brake pedal can be

depressed completely. Adjust the seat

if necessary.

WARNING

Never use more than one floor mat at

a time on the driver's floor. Before

driving, remove the original mat from

the driver's seat floor before using any

other type of floor mat. Any mat used

in this position should be securely and

properly anchored in the attaching

pins. An extra mat on the driver's floor

can cause the accelerator and/or

brake pedal to catch. Check that the

movement of these pedals is not impe-

ded.

Volvo's floor mats are specially manu-

factured for your car. They must be

firmly secured in the clips on the floor

so that they cannot slide and become

trapped under the pedals on the driv-

er's side.

1. Press the remote key into the ignition slot

as far as possible, with the metallic key

blade pointing outward (not inserted into
the slot)

1

.

2. Depress the brake pedal

2

.

3. Press and release the START/STOP

ENGINE button. The autostart function

will operate the starter motor until the

engine starts or until its overheating func-

tion stops it.
The starter motor operates for a maxi-

mum of 10 seconds. If the engine has not

started, repeat the procedure.

CAUTION

If the engine does not start after the third

try, wait for approximately 3 minutes

before trying to start it again to give the

battery time to recover its starting

capacity.

NOTE

Keyless drive*
To start a vehicle equipped with the key-

less drive feature, one of the remote keys

must be in the passenger compartment.

Follow the instructions in steps 2 and 3 to

start the vehicle.

1

On vehicles with the optional keyless drive, it is only necessary to have a remote key in the passenger’s compartment.

2

If the vehicle is moving, it is only necessary to press the START/STOP ENGINE button to start the vehicle.

WARNING

Always remove the remote key from

the ignition slot when leaving the vehi-

cle and ensure that the ignition in

mode 0 (see Ignition modes (p. 69) for

information about the ignition modes).

On vehicles with the optional keyless

drive, never remove the remote key

from the vehicle while it is being driven

or towed.

Always place the gear selector in Park

and apply the parking brake before

leaving the vehicle. Never leave the

vehicle unattended with the engine

running.

Always open garage doors fully before

starting the engine inside a garage to

ensure adequate ventilation. The

exhaust gases contain carbon monox-

ide, which is invisible and odorless but

very poisonous.

NOTE

After a cold start, idle speed may be

noticeably higher than normal for a

short period. This is done to help bring

components in the emission control

system to their normal operating tem-

perature as quickly as possible, which

enables them to control emissions and

help reduce the vehicle's impact on
the environment

3

.

CAUTION

When starting in cold weather, the

automatic transmission may shift up at

slightly higher engine speeds than nor-

mal until the automatic transmission

fluid reaches normal operating tem-

perature.

Do not race a cold engine immediately

after starting. Oil flow may not reach

some lubrication points fast enough to

prevent engine damage.

The engine should be idling when you

move the gear selector. Never acceler-

ate until after you feel the transmission

engage. Accelerating immediately after

selecting a gear will cause harsh

engagement and premature transmis-

sion wear.

Selecting P or N when idling at a

standstill for prolonged periods of time

will help prevent overheating of the

automatic transmission fluid.
