DETECCIÓN DE VEHÍCULO PRÓXIMO

WARNING

Closing vehicle sensing is a supplement to, not a replacement for, a safe driving style and use of the exterior and rear-view mirrors.

WARNING

Closing vehicle sensing may not be able to give adequate warning of vehicles approaching very quickly from directly behind the vehicle. Always use the exterior and interior rear-view mirrors.

WARNING

The radar sensors may be impaired by mud, rain, frost, ice, snow or road spray. This may affect the system's ability to reliably detect an approaching vehicle.

CAUTION

Make sure that the warning indicators in the exterior mirrors are not obscured by stickers or other objects.

CAUTION

Do not attach stickers or objects to the rear bumper, that may interfere with the radar sensors.

In addition to the functionality provided by the Blind Spot Monitor (BSM), Closing vehicle sensing monitors a larger area behind the vehicle. Closing vehicle sensing is designed to perform best on multi-lane motorways with free-flowing traffic and is operational above 13 km/h (8 mph) in a forward gear.

  1. Closing vehicle sensing monitors an area behind the vehicle, up to a distance of 70 m (230 ft) and approximately 2.5 m (8 ft) from each side of the vehicle (the width of a typical carriageway lane).

  2. If a vehicle is detected approaching rapidly, an amber warning icon will flash in the relevant exterior mirror to indicate that there is a potential danger.

  3. When the detected vehicle reaches the area monitored by the BSM, the amber warning icon will illuminate continuously.

NOTES

If rapidly overtaking vehicles are detected on both sides simultaneously, the warning icons in both mirrors will flash.

NOTES

Closing vehicle sensing covers an area of a fixed lane width. If the lanes are narrower than a typical carriageway lane, objects travelling in non-adjacent lanes may be detected.

NOTES

Closing vehicle sensing is disabled when the vehicle is negotiating a tight radius curve.

NOTES

When the BSM is disabled, Closing vehicle sensing is also disabled. See MENÚ DEL CUADRO DE INSTRUMENTOS.

NOTES

Closing vehicle sensing is disabled when a trailer is attached.

NOTES

This radar sensor is approved in all RTTE countries.
