It seems to work more consistently at night for me. During the daytime, it lights up only half the time. This is my usual sequence:

1. Slow down and drive a couple feet alongside parked cars

2. Turn on surround view with park assist enabled

3. Turn on turn indicators to the direction of parked cars

4. Keep driving until you completely pass a gap that fits the length of your vehicle by a couple feet

5. When the blue P symbol lights up, stop the vehicle and engage reverse gear

6. Follow instructions on iDrive to park
