    Bought used 2016 Tundra Platinum. It has the Park Assist Function. I have tried several times, and even though the light on the switch is on, it doesn’t seem to do anything in reverse or forward gears. No warnings of any kind. Book has several pages, but this just doesn’t seem to function. Help.

    Not sure about 2016 but I assume it’s similar to my 2018. Go through the settings in the heads up display to see if anything has been turned off. Do you have aftermarket bumpers? Are the sensors still there, intact, and/ or plugged in?

    Stock bumpers. Sensors appear to be there and intact. Can you tell me what the warnings sound like?

    You should hear beeping and see something appear on your screen. Are you getting close enough to set them off? Different vehicles have different sensitivities. I have to be pretty close in the tundra for them to go off. My Camry on the other hand will go off when I’m in bumper to bumper traffic. Put the truck in drive with your foot on the brake and have a friend stand next to or wave their arm in front of the sensor. If they still don’t go off then I’d say something is wrong with the sensors or they aren’t connected.

    Try a drive through ... mine seems to only go off in the drive through when i'm paying or grabbing my bag of food. Thing beeps like crazy and then I still have to reach to get my food. :)

    You could also have someone walk in front of the car while you are in there with your foot on the brake in drive and see if they go off ... which they should.

    It did go off once at a coffee stand drive-thru, but I don’t believe Park Assist was on at that time. However, your suggestions a very good and I will try them.

    The front sensors need a little bit of angle to them before beeping or flashing LED like you need to be turning a little as oppose to going straight.

    check your fuses!

    I finally was able to confirm the sensors are all operational. I was mistaken in believing that they were there so when pulling into parking you didn’t pull to far forward and hit the car in front of you. At least on the front, they appear to be more side warning system. The back sensors probably warn of rear objects, but you have the backup camera for that.
    Thanks to all who replied, your suggestions really helped me learn how and where they work. It really did help.

    Glad you got it figured out. That’s what we are all here for.

    Well that and sarcasm, giving people a hard time (in good faith), and helping others spend a ton of money!

    They ought to beep when you’re getting too close to the vehicle in front of you when you’re moving slowly. Also, if you sit in a parking spot with the back end out a bit while in reverse with your foot on the brake, you should get a cross traffic warning alert as well as other cars move past you. As you know, the BSM and P lights must be on for all the passive BSM, cross traffic alert and parking proximity functions to work.
