The BSW system uses radar sensors installed near the rear bumper to detect other vehicles in the blind spot area. The radar sensors detect vehicles on either side of your vehicle within the detection zone.
The detection zone starts from the outside mirror of your vehicle and extends approximately 10 feet behind the rear bumper, and approximately 10 feet to the side of your vehicle.
The BSW system operates above approximately 20 mph.
There may be instances when you want to turn the Blind Spot Warning system OFF.
You can turn the system OFF, temporarily, by pushing the BLIND SPOT WARNING switch. If you continue to push and hold the BSW switch from off to on for over 4 seconds, a chime will sound. This will change the default status of the BSW system to OFF so that this system will not automatically turn on when the engine is started. If this procedure is repeated, the default status will return to ON.
Please see your Owner’s Manual for important safety information, system limitations and additional operating information.
