It is mounted on each side of the outside mirrors.

The indicator light will illuminate when a vehicle approaching from behind is detected.

The indicator light will flash to warn the driver of dangers under the following conditions.

  •  While the indicator light is illuminating, if the turn signal lever is operated toward the side in which this light turned on
  •  When reversing the vehicle while the system detects a vehicle approaching from either side

BSD/RCTA approach indicator light dimming function

When the headlights are turned on, the brightness of the BSD/RCTA approach indicator light will be reduced.

NOTE

  •  You may have difficulty seeing the BSD/RCTA approach indicator light under the following conditions.
  •  When sunlight shines directly on it
  •  When the headlight beams from a vehicle traveling behind shines directly on it
  •  While the illumination brightness control dial is in the fully upward position, even if the headlights are turned on, the brightness of the BSD/ RCTA approach indicator light will not be reduced. For details about the illumination brightness control dial, refer to "Illumination brightness control" .

BSD/RCTA approach warning buzzer (only when reversing)

A warning buzzer sounds along with flashing of the BSD/RCTA approach indicator light to warn the driver of dangers.

The setting of the warning buzzer volume can be changed by operating the multi information display of the combination meter. For details, refer to "BSD/RCTA" .

Safety tips regarding the BSD/RCTA approach indicator light/warning buzzer

  •  In the following cases, operation of the BSD/RCTA approach indicator light and the warning buzzer may be delayed or the system may fail to issue these warnings.
  •  When a vehicle moves to the neighboring lane from a lane next to the neighboring lane
  •  When driving on a steep incline or on repeated sharp uphill and downhill grades
  •  When going beyond a pass
  •  When both your vehicle and a vehicle driving on a neighboring lane are driving on the far side of each lane.
  •  When several narrowly-spaced vehicles are approaching in a row
  •  In low radius bends (tight bends or when making turns at an intersection)
  •  When there is a difference in height between your lane and the neighboring lane
  •  Immediately after the BSD/RCTA is activated by pressing the BSD/RCTA OFF switch
  •  Immediately after the shift lever/ select lever is shifted to the "R" position
  •  When extremely heavy cargo is loaded in the trunk or cargo area
  •  During reversing, operation of the BSD/ RCTA approach indicator light and the warning buzzer may be delayed or the system may fail to issue these warnings under the following conditions.
  •  When backing out of an angled parking space
  •  When a large-sized vehicle is parked next to your vehicle (That vehicle prevents the propagation of radar waves.)
  •  When reversing on sloped roads
  •  When reversing at a high speed

Safety tips regarding the BSD/RCTA approach indicator light/warning buzzer

  • The BSD/RCTA approach indicator light may illuminate when driving close to solid objects on the road or road side (such as guardrails, tunnels and sidewalls).
  •  When turning at an intersection in urban areas, or a multilane intersection, the BSD/RCTA approach indicator light may flash.
  •  If a building or a wall exists in the reversing direction, the BSD/RCTA approach indicator light may flash and the warning buzzer may sound.
  •  In the following cases, the system may detect a vehicle driving two lanes away from your vehicle.
  •  When your vehicle drives on the near side of its lane from the corresponding vehicle
  •  When the vehicle driving two lanes away drives on the near side of its lane from your vehicle
