Mine is a 3.0Ds May 2017 F Pace. The standard of front sensor setting is stupid. It is in Off all the time, unless You turn it on, or if you had just Reversed then it is on Automatically ready for when you move forward when moving into the parking space.
Absolute rubbish way of doing it. It should be on all the time and You have the option to switch off, if it keeps blipping as people cross in traffic stops. You need it to work and warn you.
JLR should have a recall and sort out the switching for the benefit of the customer. Also good PR.
Agreed!

Thanks for the help, turned on now. Should have been on permanently from the start.

had my car in for service and got them to update from 19C to 20B to cure minor glitch and asked could they enable front parking sensors and winter wiper settings, this is apparently not possible on my car, i have checked in settings and nothing visible.
can this be done or not?

You need to have Automatic PDC on to enable it. I find it quite slow to respond though. I’m not sure whether it’s by design or I need to do do something to action like press brake, but it works ok eventually.

Should have added that I also got told on my first F-Pace that you couldn’t get an update for it, so I’d probably say that it’s not possible although I can’t understand why not.

hi rj78, yes tried that i get the trajectory lines on or off but nothing else, i think jaguar are right and it is hardware in earlier cars, even though it has the
latest software, thanks anyway Jon.
