    Something to do with the position of the cars you want to park between? Or sensors need cleaning.

    The "IPA not available" message seems familiar, but can't recall specifically.

    ah, thank you. i have never had that option. i think some of the higher packages here have it available.

    some people report that it doesn't work that well, and it doesn't get much mention.

    sorry, i can't answer your specific question, all the best!(y)

    Also a few reports that it's hard on the nerves, people don't trust that it's going to stop, override it.
