Warning function
Light in the exterior mirror
The dimmed light in the exterior mirror indicates
when there are vehicles in the blind spot or ap‐
proaching from behind.
Acute warning
If the turn signal is switched on while a vehicle is
in the critical zone, the steering wheel vibrates
briefly and the light in the exterior mirror flashes
The warning stops when the turn signal is
switched off, or the other vehicle leaves the criti‐
cal zone.
With side collision warning
If at speeds between 45 mph/70 km/h and
130 mph/210 km/h the vibrating steering wheel
is ignored and the lane marking crossed, the sys‐
tem intervenes with a brief active steering inter‐
vention. The steering intervention helps return
the vehicle into the lane. The steering interven‐
tion can be noticed on the steering wheel and
can be manually overridden at any time.
Flashing of the light
A flashing of the light during vehicle unlocking
serves as system self-test.
System limits
Safety information
The system can react not at all, too late, incor‐
rectly, or without justification due to the system
limits. There is a risk of accidents or risk of
damage to property. Follow the information re‐
garding the system limits and actively intervene
if needed.
Upper speed limit
If the vehicle speed exceeds approx.
155 mph/250 km/h, the system is deactivated
If the vehicle speed falls below approx.
155 mph/250 km/h, the system once again re‐
sponds according to the setting.

lowing situations:

for instance by stickers.
