The Parking Support Brake system consists of the following functions that operate when driving at a low speed or backing up, such as when parking. When the system determines that the possibility of a collision with a detected object is high, a warning operates to urge the driver to take evasive action. If the system determines that the possibility of a collision with a detected object is extremely high, the brakes are automatically applied to help avoid the collision or help reduce the impact of the collision.
PKSB (Parking Support Brake) system
■ Parking Support Brake function (static objects)
Ultrasonic sensors are used to detect static objects, such as a wall, in the detection area when driving at a low speed or backing up.
■ Parking Support Brake function (rear-crossing vehicles)
Rear radar sensors are used to detect approaching vehicles in the detection area behind the vehicle when backing up.
Types of sensors
Turning the Parking Support Brake on/off
The Parking Support Brake can be enabled/disabled on the multiinformation display. All of the Parking Support Brake functions (static objects and rear-crossing vehicles) are enabled/disabled simultaneously.

When the Parking Support Brake is disabled, the PKSB OFF indicator illuminates.
To re-enable the system when it was disabled, select on the multi-information display, select and then "On". If disabled using this method, the system will not be re-enabled by turning the engine switch off and then to IGNITION ON mode.
Displays and buzzers for engine output restriction control and brake control
If the engine output restriction control or brake control operates, a buzzer will sound and a message will be displayed on the multi-information display to alert the driver.
Depending on the situation, engine output restriction control will operate to either limit acceleration or restrict output as much as possible.
