When BLIS operates

Principle for BLIS: 1. Zone in blind spot. 2. Zone for rapidly approaching vehicle.

Principle for BLIS: 1. Zone in blind spot. 2. Zone for rapidly approaching vehicle.

The BLIS function is active at speeds above approx. 10 km/h.

The system is designed to react when:

  • the driver's vehicle is overtaken by other vehicles
  • the driver's vehicle is rapidly caught up by another vehicle.

When BLIS detects a vehicle in zone 1 or a quickly approaching vehicle in zone 2, the door panel BLIS lamp illuminates with a constant glow. If the driver activates the direction indicator on the same side as the warning in this situation then the BLIS lamp will change from a constant glow to flashing with a more intense light.

Warning

BLIS does not work in sharp bends.

BLIS does not work when the car is being reversed.

Limitations

  • Dirt, ice and snow covering sensors can reduce functionality and make it impossible to provide warnings. BLIS cannot detect hazards if it is covered.
  • Do not affix any objects, tape or labels in the area of the sensors.
  • BLIS is deactivated when a trailer is connected to the car's electrical system.

Important

Repair of the BLIS and CTA functions' components or repainting the bumpers must only be performed by a workshop - an authorised Volvo workshop is recommended.
