Toyota Camry Owner's Manual XV70 (2017-2024) / Driving / Using the driving support systems / Parking Support Brake function - PKSB (Parking Support Brake)

If the Parking Support Brake detects that a collision with an object is possible, the engine output will be restricted to restrain any increase in the vehicle speed. (Engine output restriction control: See A below.) Additionally, if the accelerator pedal continues to be depressed, the brakes will be applied automatically to reduce the vehicle speed.

(Brake control: See B below.)

Using the driving support systems

  1. Accelerator pedal
  2. Brake pedal
  3. Engine output
  4. Braking force
  5. Start of control
  6. High possibility of a collision
  7. Extremely high possibility of a collision

■If the Parking Support Brake function has operated

If the vehicle is stopped due to operation of the Parking Support Brake function, the Parking Support Brake system will be disabled and the PKSB OFF indicator will illuminate. If the Parking Support Brake operates unnecessarily, brake control can be canceled by depressing the brake pedal or waiting for approximately 2 seconds for it to automatically be canceled. Then, the vehicle can be operated by depressing the accelerator pedal.

■Re-enabling the Parking Support Brake system

To re-enable the Parking Support Brake system when it is disabled due to operation of the Parking Support Brake function, either enable the system again (P. 361), or turn the engine switch off and then back to IGNITION ON mode.

Additionally, if the object becomes no longer in the traveling direction of the vehicle or if the traveling direction of the vehicle changes (such as changing from moving forward to backing up, or from backing up to moving forward), the system will be re-enabled automatically.

■If "PKSB Unavailable" and "Parking Assist Unavailable Clean Parking Assist Sensor" are displayed on the multi-information display and the PKSB OFF indicator is illuminating

  • A sensor may be covered with ice, snow, dirt, etc. In this case, remove the ice, snow, dirt, etc., from the sensor to return the system to normal. If this message is shown even after removing dirt from the sensor, or shown when the sensor was not dirty to begin with, have the vehicle inspected at your Toyota dealer.
  • A sensor may be frozen. Once the ice melts, the system will return to normal.
  • Water may be continuously flowing over the sensor surface, such as in a heavy rain. When the system determines that it is normal, the system will return to normal.

WARNING

■Cautions regarding the use of the system

Do not overly rely on the system, as doing so may lead to an accident.

Always drive while checking the safety of the surroundings of the vehicle.

Depending on the vehicle and road conditions, weather, etc., the system may not operate.

The detection capabilities of sensors and radars are limited. Always drive while checking the safety of the surroundings of the vehicle.

  • The driver is solely responsible for safe driving. Always drive carefully, taking care to observe your surroundings. The Parking Support Brake system is designed to provide support to lessen the severity of collisions. However, it may not operate in some situations.
  • The Parking Support Brake system is not designed to stop the vehicle completely. Additionally, even if the system has stopped the vehicle, it is necessary to depress the brake pedal immediately as brake control will be canceled after approximately 2 seconds.
  • It is extremely dangerous to check the system operations by intentionally driving the vehicle into the direction of a wall, etc. Never attempt such actions.

■When to disable the Parking Support Brake

In the following situations, disable the Parking Support Brake as the system may operate even though there is no possibility of a collision.

  • When inspecting the vehicle using a chassis roller, chassis dynamo or free roller
  • When loading the vehicle onto a boat, truck or other transport vessel
  • If the suspension has been modified or tires of a size other than specified are installed
  • If the front of the vehicle is raised or lowered due to the carried load
  • When equipment that may obstruct a sensor is installed, such as a towing eyelet, bumper protector (an additional trim strip, etc.), bicycle carrier, or snow plow
  • When using automatic car washing devices
  • If the vehicle cannot be driven in a stable manner, such as when the vehicle has been in an accident or is malfunctioning
  • When the vehicle is driven in a sporty manner or off-road
  • When the tires are not properly inflated
  • When the tires are very worn
  • When a tire chains or compact spare tire is used

NOTICE

■If "PKSB Unavailable" is displayed on the multi-information display and the PKSB OFF indicator is illuminating

If this message is displayed immediately after the engine switch is changed to ON, operate the vehicle carefully, paying attention to your surroundings.

It may be necessary to drive the vehicle for a certain amount of time before the system returns to normal. (If the system is not return to normal after driving for a while, clean the sensors and their surrounding area on the bumpers.)
