I see info about a UConnect update to improve the front park assist, but nothing that would disable ParkSense. Please advise if you see something different.
Anyway, two dealers and Customer Care had the opportunity to tell me about a software update if that was the answer. My sense was that the dealers just didn't care -- they just guessed and argued about how unlikely it was that the car could be built wrong.
Customer Care later said that the buttons should be as described in the manual per all info they had available. They knew of no other way to disable ParkSense. They sent me back to the dealer.
With the build list, the manual, the marketing brochure (clear photo of Summit console), and the info from Customer Care, I pressed the dealer to quit guessing and start making some calls. The service guy called later to say the button was indeed missing. No apologies, just surprise that it happened. (From the boards, it seems to be happening a lot!)
The good news is that I no longer have to endure the constant beeping in my ear when backing up our trailer.
