Park Assist

Recommended Posts

Hello to all,

Question/s, what is the black sensor looking thing at the back of the parking assist hump/console on the center of the dashboard up against the windshield?

How do you go about removing/ taking apart that parking assist hump/console, looking to create a new one to hold some additional to the parking assit LED/Lights.

This is in reference to my '06 Cayenne TTS

I think that is for the sun sensor. If you did not have Parkassist that is where it would be.

1. Switch off ignition and remove ignition key.

2. Lift cover on dashboard using plastic spatula (Arrow 2) and unclip (Arrows 1) .

3. Disconnect plug connection for sun sensor and display field.

4. Lift the three cover retaining clips and remove display field.

The sun sensor is used for the HVAC control.

"When the air-conditioning system is operating, all of the control functions of the system are dependent on this ERL (Energy Requirement Level) status variable.

The main status variable used to determine the thermal energy requirement in the vehicle (the ERL signal) is derived from the most important parameters:

- Nominal temperature of the passenger compartment

- Actual temperature of the passenger compartment

- Ambient temperature

- Solar radiation energy

- Air-conditioning compressor on/off.

Solar Sensor - The value measured by the solar sensor is combined with the ERL signal taking into consideration "solar radiation/physiology correction" and various time constants."
