Toyota Corolla Cross: BSM (Blind Spot Monitor)

The Blind Spot Monitor is a system that uses rear side radar sensors installed on the inner side of the rear bumper on the left and right side to assist the driver in confirming safety when changing lanes.

WARNING

■Cautions regarding the use of the system

  • The driver is solely responsible for safe driving. Always drive safely, taking care to observe your surroundings.
  • The Blind Spot Monitor is a supplementary function which alerts the driver that a vehicle is in a blind spot of the outside rear view mirrors or is approaching rapidly from behind into a blind spot. Do not overly rely on the Blind Spot Monitor. As the function cannot judge if it is safe to change lanes, over reliance could lead to an accident resulting in death or serious injury. As the system may not function correctly under certain conditions, the driver's own visual confirmation of safety is necessary.

■To ensure the system can operate properly

Blind Spot Monitor sensors are installed behind the left and right sides of the rear bumper respectively.

Observe the following to ensure the Blind Spot Monitor can operate correctly.

  • Keep the sensors and the surrounding areas on the rear bumper clean at all times.

If a sensor or its surrounding area on the rear bumper is dirty or covered with snow, the Blind Spot Monitor may not operate and a warning message will be displayed.

In this situation, clear off the dirt or snow and drive the vehicle with the operation conditions of the BSM function satisfied for approximately 10 minutes. If the warning message does not disappear, have the vehicle inspected by your Toyota dealer.

Using the driving support systems

  • Do not attach accessories, stickers (including transparent stickers), aluminum tape, etc. to a sensor or its surrounding area on the rear bumper.
  • Do not subject a sensor or its surrounding area on the rear bumper to a strong impact.

    If a sensor is moved even slightly off position, the system may malfunction and vehicles may not be detected correctly.

    In the following situations, have your vehicle inspected by your Toyota dealer.

    • A sensor or its surrounding area is subject to a strong impact.
    • If the surrounding area of a sensor is scratched or dented, or part of them has become disconnected.
  • Do not disassemble the sensor.
  • Do not modify the sensor or surrounding area on the rear bumper.
  • If a sensor or the rear bumper needs to be removed/installed or replaced, contact your Toyota dealer.
  • Do not paint the rear bumper any color other than an official Toyota color.
