Each adjusted value for the calibration of the parking assist monitor system will be stored in the television camera assembly.

(2) When the lens of the television camera assembly is dirty, wash the lens with water and wipe it off with a soft cloth to obtain clear images. For heavy dirt, use neutral detergent to clean the lens.


(a) Notes for the television camera assembly

(1) The parking assist monitor system may not function properly if subjected to a severe blow by any hard object.

(2) Do not scrub the camera lens. Scrubbing may scratch the camera lens and affect the image.

(3) The cover part of the camera is made of resin. Prevent organic solvents, waxes, bond removing solvents or glass coating from adhering to the cover. If such material adheres to the cover, clean it off immediately and wash it with water.

(4) Exposing the camera to a sudden temperature change may affect proper functioning of the camera.

(1) Electrical devices are used in the cabin (noise may occur in the image).

(2) Accessories that generate radio waves have been installed (noise may occur in the image).

(3) The outer mirror switch assembly is operated (noise may occur in the image).

(4) The multi-display is cold (the image immediately after turning the engine switch on (IG) may be blurred or darker than normal).

(5) The camera lens is dirty with snow, mud, etc.

(6) A strong beam of light, such as a sunbeam or headlight, hits the camera.

(7) It is too dark around the camera (at night etc.).
