Nissan Rogue Owners Manual: BSW system operation

BSW system operation
BSW system operation

The BSW system operates above approximately 20 MPH (32 km/h).

When the camera unit detects vehicles in the detection zone, the Blind Spot indicator light located inside the outside mirrors will illuminate. If the turn signal is then activated, the system chimes (twice) and the Blind Spot indicator light flashes to alert the driver.

The Blind Spot indicator light continues to flash until the detected vehicle(s) leave the detection zone.

Detection zone
Detection zone

The camera unit can detect vehicles on either side of your vehicle when part of another vehicle is within the detection zone shown as illustrated.

This detection zone typically starts from the outside mirror of your vehicle and extends approximately 10 ft (3.0 m) behind the rear bumper, and approximately 10 ft (3.0 m) sideways.

NOTE: The Blind Spot indicator lights will illuminate for a few seconds when the ignition switch is placed in the ON position. The brightness of the Blind Spot indicator lights is adjusted automatically depending on the brightness of the ambient light.

A chime sounds if the camera unit has already detected vehicles when the driver activates the turn signal. If a vehicle comes into the detection zone after the driver activates the turn signal, then only the Blind Spot indicator light flashes and no chime sounds. For additional information, refer to “BSW driving situations” in this section.
