(4) When multiple vehicles are approaching with only a small gap between each vehicle.

(5) When the distance between this vehicle and a following vehicle is short.

(6) When there is a significant difference in speed between this vehicle and the vehicle that enters the detection area.

(7) When the difference in speed between this vehicle and another vehicle is changing.

(8) When a vehicle enters a detection area traveling at about the same speed as this vehicle.

(9) As this vehicle starts from a stop, a vehicle remains in the detection area.

(10) When driving up and down consecutive steep inclines, such as hills, dips in the road, etc.

(11) When driving on roads with sharp bends, consecutive curves, or uneven surfaces.

(2) When a distance between this vehicle and a guardrail, wall, etc. that enters the detection area is short.

(3) When driving up and down consecutive steep inclines, such as hills, dips in the road, etc.

(4) When vehicle lanes are narrow, or when driving on the edge of a lane, and a vehicle traveling in a lane other than the adjacent lanes enters the detection area.

(5) When driving on roads with sharp bends, consecutive curves, or uneven surfaces.

(1) When a vehicle passes by the side of this vehicle.

(2) When the parking space faces a street and vehicles are being driven on the street.

(3) When the distance between this vehicle and metal objects, such as a guardrail, wall, sign, or parked vehicle, which may reflect electrical waves toward the rear of the vehicle, is short

HINT:

In this section, the expression "this vehicle" is used to refer to the vehicle equipped with this blind spot monitor system.

(g) Under the following conditions, the blind spot monitor system may store DTCs C1AC1 and C1AC2 by mistake:

(1) The vehicle is driven continuously with the blind spot monitor system on when using a drum tester such as a speedometer tester, brake/ speedometer combination tester or chassis dynamometer.

(2) When mud, snow, ice, a sticker, etc. is covering the sensor or surrounding area on the rear bumper.

HANDLING THE RADAR SENSOR

(a) 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 function correctly.

(1) Keep the sensors and the surrounding areas on the rear bumper clean at all times.

(2) 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, inspect the sensor and surrounding area.

  • A sensor or its surrounding area is subjected to a strong impact.
  • If the surrounding area of a sensor is scratched or dented, or part of them has become disconnected.

(3) Do not disassemble the sensor.

(4) Do not attach stickers to the sensor or surrounding area on the rear bumper.

(5) Do not modify the sensor or surrounding area on the rear bumper.

(6) Do not paint the rear bumper any color other than an official Toyota color.

(7) Do not drop a sensor or subject it to a strong impact, as it is a high-precision device.

(8) Do not reuse a sensor that has been dropped or subjected to a strong impact.
