Why isnt APA searching for a parking space?

You may have deactivated the AdvanceTrac system.
One of the doors (except the drivers door) may not be securely closed.

Why doesnt APA offer a particular parking space?

Something may be contacting the front bumper or side sensors. Clear any material stuck to the sensors.
There may not be enough room to maneuver the vehicle into the space. Remember, there needs to be enough space on the opposite side of the vehicle to allow the front of the vehicle to swing out as you back into the space.
The vehicle is not driven close enough to the parking space, less than 60 inches (1.5 m) from neighboring parked vehicles.
The vehicle is driven too close to the side objects (e.g. less than 16 inches [41 cm] from neighboring parked vehicles).
You may be driving in R (Reverse). APA can only look for a parking space while moving forward.

Why doesnt APA position the vehicle where I want in the space?

The driver allows the vehicle to roll in the opposite direction of the transmission (such as rolling forward when R (Reverse) gear is selected.
You may be driving in R (Reverse). APA can only look for a parking space while moving forward.
There may be an irregular curb along the parking space. APA might not be able to align the vehicle to curbs that are damaged, very shallow or covered with material such as debris, leaves, snow, or tarps.
The vehicles or objects bordering the space may not be positioned appropriately.
The vehicle was pulled further up from the parking space than usual while driving by the space. APA performs best when you drive the same distance past the entire length of the parking space whenever parking your vehicle.
The tires may not be installed and maintained correctly. For example, one or more tires may not be inflated correctly, may not be of the same size, or may not be authorized for use on this vehicle.
The vehicle had a repair or alteration that is not authorized by the manufacturer.
One of the parked vehicles has a high altitude attachment (i.e. salt sprayer, snow plow, moving truck high bed, etc.) High altitude attachments may not be detected by the system.
The parking space length or parked objects position have changed after the vehicle has passed the parking space.
The temperature around your vehicle changes quickly, such as driving from a heated garage into the cold or after leaving a car wash. As a result, the outside air temperature displayed in the vehicle may not be close enough to the actual temperature. APA relies on correctly sensing the temperature outside for precisely positioning the vehicle.
