BMW X5 (G05) 2019-2022 Owners Manual / Controls / Driver assistance systems / Depending on equipment version: emergency brake function, Active PDC


The emergency braking function of PDC initiates an emergency braking in case of acute risk of collision.

General information

Due to system limits, a collision cannot be prevented under all circumstances.

The function is available below walking speed when driving in reverse or rolling backward.

A press of the accelerator pedal interrupts the brake intervention.

After emergency braking to a stop, further creeping toward an obstacle is possible. Proceed with caution. To move forward, lightly press the accelerator pedal and release as needed.

If the accelerator pedal is depressed longer, the vehicle drives off. Manual braking is possible at any time.

The system uses the ultrasonic sensors of the Park Distance Control PDC and the Parking Assistant.

Safety information


The system cannot serve as a substitute for the driver's personal judgment in assessing the traffic situation. Based on the limits of the system, it cannot independently react to all traffic situations. There is a risk of accident. Adjust driving style to traffic conditions. Watch traffic and vehicle surroundings closely and actively intervene where appropriate.

 Engine Adaptation Values

Engine adaptation values can be broken down into two categories: Additive Mixture Adaptation - additive adaptation refers to "long term fuel trim". These adaptation are made by the ECM (DME) at idle during "closed loop" fuel control. These values are measured in milliseconds and are expresse
