When your vehicle moves backwards from a parking position, the sensor detects

When your vehicle moves backwards from a parking position, the sensor detects approaching vehicles to the left or right side direction and gives information to the driver.

Operating conditions

  • When the ignition is ON, if you press the BSD switch, the switch indicator illuminates and the system turns on.
  • The system operates when the vehicle speed is below 6.2 mph (10 km/h) with the shift lever in R (Rear) gear.
  • The RCTA (Rear Cross Traffic Alert) detecting range is 0.5m ~ 20m based on the side direction. If the approaching vehicle speed is 2.5 mph (4 km/h) ~ 22 mph (36 km/h) within sensing range, it is detected. However, the system sensing range is different base on conditions. Always pay attention to the surrounding.

Warning type

  • If the vehicle detected by sensors approaches your vehicle, the warning chime will sound and the warning light will blink on the outside rearview mirror.
  • If the detected vehicle is out of the sensing range from behind your vehicle, moves in the opposite direction away from your vehicle or moves slowly, the warning is cancelled.
  • The system may not operate properly due to other factors or circumstances. Always pay attention to your surrounding.


  • The warning light on the outside rearview mirror and the head up display will illuminate whenever a vehicle is detected at the rear side by the system. To avoid accidents, do not focus only on the warning light and neglect to see the surrounding of the vehicle.
  • Drive safely even though the vehicle is equipped with a BSD (Blind spot detection) system. Do not solely rely on the system but check for yourself before changing lanes. The system may not alert the driver in some conditions so always check the surroundings while driving.


  • The system may not work properly if the bumper has been replaced or if a repair work has been done near the sensor.
  • The detection area differs according to the roads width. If the road is narrow the system may detect other vehicles in the next lane.
  • On the contrary, if the road is very wide the system may not detect other vehicles.
  • The system may turn off due to strong electromagnetic waves.
