Hyundai Santa Cruz: Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA) / Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist Malfunction and Limitations

Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist malfunction

When Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist is not working properly, the ‘Check Blind-Spot Safety system’ warning message appears on the cluster for several seconds, and the master () warning light illuminates on the cluster. If this occurs, have the vehicle inspected by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.

When the side view mirror warning light is not working properly, the ‘Check side view mirror warning light’ warning message appears on the cluster for several seconds, and the master () warning light illuminates on the cluster. If this occurs, have the vehicle inspected by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.

Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist 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 Collision-Avoidance Assist.

If this occurs, the ‘Blind-Spot Safety system disabled. Radar blocked’ warning message appears on the cluster.

Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist will operate properly when such foreign material or trailer, etc., is removed, and then the engine is restarted.

If Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist does not operate properly after it is removed, have the vehicle inspected by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.

WARNING

  • Even though the warning message does not appear on the cluster, Blind- Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist may not properly operate.
  • Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist may not properly operate in an area (for example, 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 Collision-Avoidance Assist to install or remove a trailer, carrier, or another attachment. Turn on Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist when finished.
