Parking Assist Sensor Displays 2018 RX45oh Premier


Recommended Posts

My new 2018 450h Premier  Would prefer to have the Parking Assist Display working for Parking but not to come on every time the car stops in traffic.   Have read the online Manuals and it seems it is impossible to achieve this - the manuals are a bit complex so I might have missed something.  Does anybody know if there is a way to do it or to temporarily switch it off once it has come on ?   Many thanks.

Hi David, I thought the Parking Assist Monitor is only displayed while the car is in Reverse, so I'm unsure of an answer to this. Hopefully someone more knowlegable than myself will be along soon to help you 🙂

Mine never come on in traffic, only when I put the car in reverse.

If you're talking about the front ones, just don't get so close to the vehicle in front - they'll come on because they think you're going to hit something. They can't tell the difference between just being in a traffic queue or the wall of a car park.

Do you mean the display from the 360deg cameras?

If so I think the image is displayed if you have the junction view setting enabled. I’m pretty sure that this can be turned off by an icon on the screen when in camera mode since I recall mine not working at some point in the past when I inadvertently changed the setting. 
If you confirm this is the case I’ll take a look at mine later

Thanks Paul. Yes I mean the 360 deg displays which can be disconcerting when you are just stopped in traffic or at traffic lights.

Thanks Herbie.  Yes I understand all that.  Sorry for misunderstanding - I am referring to the 360 degree camera views which switch on automatically when the car stops in traffic and give you close up views of traffic passing by or pedestrians on the pavement. Can be quite disconcerting and is  unnecessary, in my opinion.

I have a 2018 F Sport with Premier pack, the camera only comes on automatically when you are pretty close to an object, so as I park on the drive the front camera will switch on as I approach the garage door from about 3 feet away, never comes on in stationary traffic.

I think there is a setting somewhere where you can set the sensitivity range of the parking sensors, that could be the issue.

David, if you want to turn it off you can do so but it will disable the auto operation of the cameras (except reversing).
This will only be an issue if you use the cameras for parking adjacent to a kerb, for instance, or if you use the junction view cameras, in which case you will have to manually turn on the 360 cameras using the switch on the lower right of the dash.

Disabling the auto operation is no good for me since I need the junction view facility for exiting our driveway & I can’t be bothered with keep turning the 360 cameras on everytime I want to exit the drive.

Anyhow, to disable the camera coming on when coming to a near stop just turn off the auto operation. You will see an icon labelled “auto” on the lower right of the screen when the cameras come on, in anything other than reverse. Move the cursor over it & press.
To turn the cameras on you will now have to switch them on manually. Reselecting “auto” will bring back the auto operation again.

Hope this all makes sense?

I always wanted to see how close the car behind me was. I never saw the point of the screen showing the view from the bonnet camera when stopped. I can see that by just looking out the front window.

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
