  • 5

Using information from the radars installed on each side of the rear bumper (area A), the system notifies the driver when another vehicle appears in the detection zone B.

The function is activated if:

- reverse gear is engaged;

and

- the vehicle is stationary or driving at a low speed.

Special feature

Make sure that the radar area A is not obscured (by stickers, mud, snow etc.).

If a radar is obscured, the message “Side radars no visibility” will appear on the instrument panel. Clean the area where the sensors are located.

The system’s detection capability depends on the vehicle’s surroundings (static objects etc.) and the condition of the bumper etc.

This function is an additional driving aid. This function is not under any circumstances intended to replace the due care and attention of the driver, who should at all times be in control of the vehicle.

Activation/deactivation from the multimedia screen 1

To activate or deactivate the function, refer to the multimedia instructions.

Select “ON” or “OFF”.

Operation

The function warns you if a vehicle is in area B and is approaching your vehicle.

When a vehicle is detected, the indicators 2 illuminate on both door mirrors 3.

Note: clean the rear view mirrors 3 regularly so that the indicators 2 can be seen.

The indicators 4 on the multimedia screen show you on which side the approaching vehicle has been detected.

Note: clean the camera regularly so that it is not obscured.

Indicators 2 and 4 are accompanied by an audible signal when your vehicle is reversing.

Operating faults

If the system detects a fault, the message “Check Side radars” is displayed on the instrument panel. Consult an approved dealer.

Due to the presence of sensors behind the bumper, it is advisable to entrust any operation on the bumper (repair, replacement, paintwork, etc.) to a qualified professional.

Limitation of the system operation

- The radar area should be kept clean and free of any modifications in order to ensure the proper operation of the system.

- Small objects (motorcycles, bicycles, pedestrians etc.) moving towards to the vehicle may not be recognised by the system.

Deactivating the function

You must disable the function if:

- the radar area A has been damaged (rear bumper);

- the vehicle is fitted with a towbar that is not recognised by the system.

This function is an additional driving aid. This function is not under any circumstances intended to replace the due care and attention of the driver, who should at all times be in control of the vehicle.

The system should under no circumstances be taken to be an obstacle detector or an anti-collision system.

System servicing/repairs

- In the event of a impact, the position of the radars may be changed, affecting the function. Deactivate the function and consult an authorised dealer.

- Any work in the area where the radars are located (repair, replacement, bodywork etc.) must be carried out by a qualified professional.

Only an authorised dealer is qualified to service the system.

System disturbance

Some conditions can disrupt or damage the operation of the system, for example:

- a complex environment (underground car park, steel structures etc.) ;

- poor weather conditions (snow, heavy rain, hail, black ice etc.).

Risk of false alarms or absence of warnings

In the event of the system behaving abnormally, deactivate it and consult an authorised dealer.
