Parking Assist Disabled see Owners Manual
I have a utility trailer that I pull on ocassion to haul things and pulled it the other week for the first time with the Escalade. I hooked it up and cranked the truck and the DIC read "Parking Assist Disabled see Owners Manual". I depressed the check button and it went away so I assumed either the sensors were tricked by the trailer or this displays when the trailer plug is connected. I ran my errand and when I got home I scanned the OM about towing a trailer but saw nothing mentioning this warning unless I just missed it. Has anyone else experienced this?
I just disable the Parking Assist on my 2011 EXT each time I tow something. Then turn it back on when I'm done. The first time I towed my trailer it came on and I instantly thought something got short circuited in the trailer wiring hook-up. Then I realized what was really happening, and calmed enough to turn off the Parking Assist. Never forgot that one again
