BLIND SPOT WARNING 

(3/4)

Operation

This function gives a warning:
–  when the vehicle speed is between 

approximately 19 mph (30 km/h) and 

87 mph (140 km/h);

–  when another vehicle is in the blind 

spot area and travelling in the same 

direction as your vehicle.

If your vehicle is overtaking another ve-

hicle, the indicator 6 will be activated 

only if that vehicle remains in the blind 

spot for more than one second.

Indicator 6

An indicator light 6 is located on each 

door mirror 7.
Note: clean the door mirrors 7 regularly 

so that the indicators 6 can be seen.

Display B

The function is activated and has not 

detected any vehicles.

Display C

First warning: the indicator 6 means 

that a vehicle has been detected in the 

blind spot.

Display D

When the direction indicator is acti-

vated, the indicator light 6 flashes when 

a vehicle is detected in the blind spot on 

the side towards which you are about to 

steer. If you cancel the direction indica-

tor, the function will return to the initial 

warning (display C).

D

The system’s detection range oper-

ates according to a standard lane 

width. If you are driving in narrow 

traffic lanes, it may detect vehicles 

in other lanes.

2.58

Operating faults

If the system detects a fault, the mes-

sage “Check blind spot alert” is dis-

played on the instrument panel. Consult 

an approved dealer.
Note: when the engine is started, the 

indicator light 6, display B, flashes 

three times. It is normal.

– The system’s detection 

range operates according 

to a standard lane width. If 

you are driving in wide traf-

fic lanes, the system might not 

be able to detect a vehicle in the 

blind spot.

–  The system might be disrupted 

momentarily if it is exposed to 

strong electromagnetic waves 

(as beneath high-tension power 

lines) or to very poor weather 

conditions (heavy rain, snow 

etc.). Remain aware of driving 

conditions.

There is a risk of accidents.

BLIND SPOT WARNING 

(4/4)

Because sensors have 

been installed in the bump-

ers, any work (repairs, re-

placements, touching up of 

paintwork) must be carried out by a 

qualified professional.

SAFE DISTANCE ALERT 

(2/3)

The measurement is dis-

played for information only: 

the system performs no 

action on the vehicle.

This function is not designed for use 

in urban conditions or for a dynamic 

driving style (sudden cornering, ac-

celeration, braking, etc.), but rather 

for stable driving conditions.

The function does not interact with 

the braking system.

The windscreen must remain clean 

to ensure the correct operation of 

the system.

–  C (orange): the time interval falls 

between around 1 and 2 seconds (in-

sufficient distance between the two 

vehicles);

–  D (red): the time interval is less than 

or equal to around one second (very 

insufficient distance between the two 

vehicles).

If the interval between the two vehicles 

is less than around 0.5 seconds, noti-

fication  4, display D, will flash on the 

instrument panel. Under certain condi-

tions, the time interval may not be dis-

played:

– while cornering;

–  when changing lane;

–  if the vehicle in front is sufficiently far 

or outside the range of the sensor.

This function is essential if adaptive 

cruise control is activated.

On equipped vehicles, some infor-

mation is given on the head-up dis-

play.

account of events to inform you of any 

risk of fatigue, such as:

–  steering wheel movement;

–  driver actions on other devices (indi-

cators, windscreen washer, etc.);

–  time spent driving without stopping;

– ...

This function is an addi-

tional driving aid in case of 

risk of fatigue. The function
