LANE DEPARTURE WARNING (5/5)
This function is an additional driving aid. This function is not under any circumstances intended to replace the due care

- windscreen obscured (by dirt, ice, snow, condensation etc.);
- a complex environment (tunnel etc.);
- poor weather conditions (snow, hail, black ice etc.);
- poor visibility (night, fog etc.);
- the road markings are irregular or difficult to distinguish (e.g. partially erased, excessive spacing, distorted road surface) ;
- being dazzled (glaring sun, lights of vehicles travelling in the opposite direction etc.);
- the road is narrow, winding or undulating (tight bends etc.);
- closely following a vehicle travelling in the same lane.
Risk of false alarms or absence of warnings

2.64
BLIND SPOT WARNING (6/7)
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 driver should always adapt their speed to the traffic conditions, regardless of the system indications.
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 an impact, radar alignment may be changed, and its operation will consequently be affected. Deactivate the
function and consult an authorised dealer.
- Any work in the area where the radars are located (repairs, replacements, etc.) must be carried out by a qualified profes-
sional.
Only an authorised dealer is qualified to service the system.
System disturbance
Some conditions can disturb or damage the operation of the system, such as:
- complex surroundings (metal bridges, tunnels, roads with barriers at the edge, etc.);
- poor weather conditions (snow, 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.
2.65
BLIND SPOT WARNING (7/7)
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 moving close to the vehicle (motorcycles, bicycles, pedestrians, etc.) may not be recognised by the system.
- When turning into a bend, the radars may temporarily cease to detect vehicles in adjacent lanes.
- The function may warn you late when two other vehicles are approaching from the rear, side by side in the adjacent lanes
(driving on a 3-lane road) and at a much higher speed than your vehicle.
- The system may not provide a warning when the other vehicles are travelling at a significantly different speed.
- If the vehicle is being overtaken by a long vehicle (e.g. heavy goods vehicle overtaking at a similar speed to the vehicle) the
system may interrupt the warning before the end of the manoeuvre.
- The vehicle is travelling on a winding road.
Deactivating the function
You must disable the function if:
- the radar area has been damaged (rear bumper);
- the vehicle is fitted with a towbar that is not recognised by the system.
