BLIND SPOT MONITOR SENSORS

The blind spot monitor system is automatically disabled if either of the sensors become completely obscured. An amber indicator dot illuminates in the door mirror and the message center displays the message BLIND SPOT MONITOR SENSOR BLOCKED.

NOTES

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

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

When a fault with a radar sensor is detected, an amber warning indicator dot displays in the door mirror and the message center displays the message BLIND SPOT MONITOR NOT AVAILABLE.

NOTES

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

When a fault in the system occurs, consult a retailer/authorized repairer.
