OK, so I have a SEL trim so pretty much all the smart things they could put on it. I have a bike rack on a hitch and when backing up I have been unable to consistently turn off the safety devices to allow me to backup any faster than a slow roll without the car slamming on the brakes. I know there is a simple way to disable it and I just haven't figured it out. The icons that pop up on the display are unclear and frustrating. Any help is appreciated, thanks.

yeah we ran into that emergency braking issue too. its disappointing you can't also turn off the beeping. you can only set the volume to '1'. anyway, I forget what its called but you have to turn off the crash avoidance system in the car menu in the infotainment system.

thanks, just finally pulled out the manual and deciphered out the icons, there is one to turn off the braking and one to mute the beeping sound and one to get back to the camera. Not the quickest solution but it works once you know which does what.

I turned it off in the menu so that I don't have to do it everytime. I'll turn it back on again when I take the rack off at end of summer. the method you found appears to need to be done each time

Could you do me a favor and screen shot your software version? Mine has been updated and "fixed" atleast 5 times but when I check the software screen, none of the numbers ever change. I am going onto 10 months and looks like a Lemon Law is my next step. I have attached a photo of my software screen.
