CLOSING VEHICLE SENSING

WARNING

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

The closing vehicle sensing system monitors an area adjacent to, and up to approximately 70 m (230 ft) behind, the vehicle. Closing vehicle sensing is automatically switched on when the blind spot monitor system is on. See BLIND SPOT MONITOR.

An amber warning icon (1) is located in each door mirror. The icon:

  • Illuminates continuously if the detected vehicle enters the area monitored by the closing vehicle sensing system, and the relevant direction indicator is not being used. See BLIND SPOT MONITOR.

  • Flashes if the detected vehicle enters the area monitored by the closing vehicle sensing system, and the relevant direction indicator is being used. See BLIND SPOT MONITOR.

A warning indicator (2) illuminates in the door mirrors when the closing vehicle sensing system is disabled, not active, or there is a system fault.
