BLIND SPOT MONITOR

WARNING

Make sure the relevant safety warnings have been read and understood before driving the vehicle. See COLLISION AVOIDANCE SAFETY.

The blind spot monitor system monitors an area adjacent to, and approximately 8.5 m behind, the vehicle. When the system detects an overtaking vehicle, the amber warning icon (1):

  • Flashes if the relevant direction indicator is being used.

  • Illuminates continuously if the relevant direction indicator is not being used.

  • Extinguishes when the system no longer detects a vehicle in the monitored area.

During initialisation, the warning icons flash in both door mirrors.

A warning indicator (2) illuminates in the door mirrors when the blind spot monitor system is disabled, not active, or there is a system fault.

The blind spot monitor system can be switched on and off via the Driver assistance instrument panel menu. See INSTRUMENT PANEL MENU.
