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 28 ft (8.5 m) behind, the vehicle. When the system detects an overtaking vehicle, the amber warning icon (1):

  • Flashes if the relevant turn signal is being used.

  • Illuminates continuously if the relevant turn signal is not being used.

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

During initialization, 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.
