Hyundai Santa Fe (TM) 2019-2024 Owner's Manual / Driver assistance system / Driving Safety / Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA) / System malfunction and limitations

System malfunction

When Blind-Spot Safety system is not working properly, the ‘Check Blind-Spot Safety system(s)’ warning message will appear on the cluster, and the system will turn off automatically or the system will be limited. We recommend that the system be inspected by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.

When the side view mirror warning light is not working properly, the ‘Check side view mirror warning light’ (or 'Check outside mirror warning icon') warning message will appear on the cluster. We recommend that the system be inspected by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.

System disabled

When the rear bumper around the rear corner radar or sensor is covered with foreign material, such as snow or rain, or installing a trailer or carrier, it can reduce the detecting performance and temporarily limit or disable Blind-Spot Safety system.

If this occurs, the ‘Blind-Spot Safety system(s) disabled. Radar blocked’ warning message will appear on the cluster.

The system will operate normally when such foreign material or trailer, etc. is removed, and then the engine is restarted.

If the system does not operate normally after it is removed, we recommend that the system be inspected by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.

WARNING

  • Even though the warning message does not appear on the cluster, Blind- Spot Safety system may not properly operate.
  • Blind-Spot Safety system may not properly operate in an area (e.g. open terrain) where any objects are not detected right after the engine is turned on, or when the detecting sensor is blocked with foreign material right after the engine is turned on.

CAUTION

Turn off Blind-Spot Safety system to install a trailer, carrier, etc., or remove the trailer, carrier, etc. to use Blind-Spot Safety system.
