BSM SENSORS

The BSM system will automatically disable if either of the sensors become completely obscured, an amber warning indicator dot is displayed in the exterior mirror and the message BLIND SPOT MONITOR SENSOR BLOCKED appears in the Message center.

NOTES

Blockage testing is only initiated when the vehicle's speed is above 6 mph (10 km/h) and will take at least 2 minutes of accumulated time traveling above this speed, to determine that the sensor is blocked.

If the sensors become blocked, check that there is nothing obscuring the rear bumper and that it is clear from ice, frost, and dirt.

If a fault with one of the radar sensors is detected, an amber warning indicator dot is displayed in the exterior mirror and the message BLIND SPOT MONITOR NOT AVAILABLE is displayed in the Message center.

NOTES

Even if the detected fault only affects the radar sensor on one side of the vehicle, the whole system is disabled. If the fault is temporary, the system will operate correctly once the engine has been switched off and then on again.

If a fault in the system occurs, consult your Retailer/Authorized Repairer.
