Sound signals

At dangerous reduction of distance to the object which is behind the periodic sound signal is given. In process of rapprochement the frequency of giving of a signal and when to an obstacle there are less than 30 cm increases, the sound becomes continuous.

Giving of signals stops three seconds if at the movement of the car (for example, parallel to a wall) rapprochement with an obstacle does not happen later.

The continuous signal of a high-pitch tone sounding at inclusion of system testifies to malfunction in system. In this case address for elimination of malfunction on HUNDRED BMWs.

Existence of PDC system does not exempt the driver from need independently to estimate distance to obstacles. The subjects getting to a dead zone of sensors system are not distinguished and do not cause operation of the alarm system. Recognition of objects can also go beyond physically possible at ultrasonic measurements, for example in relation to a dyshl and the traction coupling device of the trailer, and also thin subjects and the varnished surfaces.

Loud sources of a sound, for example the radio receiver, can muffle PDC system signals.

For full preservation of operability of sensors they should be kept clean and to delete from them ice. Hit on sensors of vapor jets is inadmissible for a long time. Thus the distance should not be less than 10 cm.
