BLIS is a driver's aid intended to provide a warning about:
- vehicles in the car's blind spot
- rapidly approaching vehicles in the left and right-hand lanes closest to the car.
The BLIS function CTA(Cross Traffic Alert) is a driver's aid intended to provide a warning about:
- crossing traffic when the car is reversed.
BLIS is a supplementary aid and does not work in all situations.
BLIS is no substitute for a safe driving style and the use of rearview and door mirrors.
BLIS can never replace the driver's responsibility and attention - it is always the driver's responsibility to change lanes in a safe manner.
BLIS lamp location
NOTE: The illustration is schematic - details may vary depending on car model.
The lamp illuminates on the side of the car where the system has detected the vehicle. If the car is overtaken on both sides at the same time then both lamps illuminate.
The sensors for the BLIS functions are located inside the rear wing/bumper on each corner of the car.
Keep this surface clean - also on the left-hand side.
- To ensure optimal functionality the areas in front of the sensors must be kept clean.
