The system has three alert stages for a possible collision. However, depending on circumstances, the CMBS

TM

 may not go through all of 

the stages before initiating the last stage.

Stage 

one

There is a risk of a collision 
with the vehicle ahead of 
you.

When in Long, visual and 
audible alerts come on at a 
longer distance from a vehicle 
ahead than in Normal setting, 
and in Short, at a shorter 
distance than in Normal.

In case of an 
oncoming vehicle 
detected, rapid 
vibration is 
provided.

Environmental conditions

• Driving in bad weather (rain, fog, snow, etc.).
• Sudden changes between light and dark, such as an entrance or exit of a tunnel.
• There is little contrast between objects and the background.
• Driving into low sunlight (e.g., at dawn or dusk).
• Strong light is reflected onto the roadway.
• Driving in the shadows of trees, buildings, etc.

Detection limitations

• A vehicle or pedestrian suddenly crosses in front of you.
• The distance between your vehicle and the vehicle or pedestrian ahead of you is

at high speed.

• The vehicle ahead of you is a motorcycle, bicycle, mobility scooter or other small 

vehicle.

• When there are animals in front of your vehicle.
• When you drive on a curved, winding or undulating road that makes it difficult for 

the sensor to properly detect a vehicle in front of you.

• The speed difference between your vehicle and a vehicle or pedestrian in front of 

you is significantly large.

• An oncoming vehicle suddenly comes in front of you.
• Another vehicle suddenly comes in front of you at an intersection, etc.
• Your vehicle abruptly crosses over in front of an oncoming vehicle.

are running.

• When several pedestrians are walking ahead in a group.
• When the lead vehicle suddenly slows down.
• When the camera cannot correctly identify that a pedestrian is present due to an 

unusual shape (holding luggage, body position, size).

Automatic shutoff

CMBS

TM

 may automatically shut itself off and the CMBS

 indicator comes and stays 

on when:
• The temperature inside the system is high.
• You drive off-road or on a mountain road, or curved and winding road for an 

extended period.

• An abnormal tire condition is detected (wrong tire size, flat tire, etc.).
• The camera behind the rearview mirror, or the area around the camera, including 

the windshield, gets dirty.

Once the conditions that caused CMBS

TM

 to shut off improve or are addressed (e.g., 

cleaning), the system comes back on.

Driving

The CMBS

TM

 may activate even when you are aware of a vehicle ahead of you, or 

when there is no vehicle ahead. Some examples of this are:

When Passing

Your vehicle approaches another vehicle ahead of you and you change lanes to pass.

At an intersection

Your vehicle approaches or passes another vehicle that is making a left or right turn.

On a curve

When driving through curves, your vehicle comes to a point where an oncoming 
vehicle is right in front of you.

Through a low bridge at high speed

You drive under a low or narrow bridge at high speed.

Speed bumps, road work sites, train tracks, roadside objects, etc.

You drive over speed bumps, steel road plates, etc., or your vehicle approaches train 
tracks or roadside objects [such as a traffic sign and guard rail] on a curve or, when 
parking, stationary vehicles and walls.

For the CMBS

TM

 to work properly:

Always keep the radar sensor cover clean.

Never use chemical solvents or polishing powder for 
cleaning the sensor cover. Clean it with water or a 
mild detergent.

Do not paint, or apply any coverings or paint to radar 
sensor area. This can impact CMBS operation.

If you need the radar sensor to be repaired, or 
removed, or the radar sensor cover is strongly 
impacted, turn off the system by pressing the 
CMBS

TM

 off button and take your vehicle to a dealer.

WARNING

The vehicle can roll away if left unattended 
without confirming that Park is engaged.

A vehicle that rolls away could cause a crash 
resulting in serious injury or death.

Always keep your foot on the brake pedal 
until you have confirmed that

The sensors are covered with snow, ice, mud or 
dirt, etc.

The vehicle is on uneven surface, such as grass, 
bumpy road, or a hill.

The vehicle has been out in hot or cold weather.

The system is affected by devices that emit 
ultrasonic waves.

Driving in bad weather.

The system may not sense:

Thin or low objects.

CAUTION

Cross Traffic Monitor cannot detect all 
approaching vehicles and may not detect 
an approaching vehicle at all.

Failure to visually confirm that it is safe to 
back up the vehicle before doing so may 
result in a collision.

Do not solely rely on the system when 
reversing; always also use your mirrors, and 
look behind and to the sides of your vehicle 
before reversing.

on.

• The shift lever is in

• Your vehicle is moving at 3 mph (5 km/h) or 

lower.

When a vehicle is detected approaching from a rear corner, Cross Traffic Monitor 
alerts you with a buzzer and a displayed warning.

The system will not detect a vehicle that approaches from directly behind your 
vehicle, nor will it provide alerts about a detected vehicle when it moves directly 
behind your vehicle.

The system does not detect or provide alerts for a vehicle that is moving away from 
your vehicle, and it may not detect or alert for pedestrians, bicycles, or stationary 
objects.

How the System Works

1

Cross Traffic Monitor

*

Cross Traffic Monitor may not detect an approaching 
vehicle, or may delay alerting you under the following 
conditions:

A vehicle, which is parked adjacent to your vehicle, 
is blocking the radar sensor’s view.

Your vehicle is moving at the speed of about 3 mph 
(5 km/h) or higher.

A vehicle is approaching at the speed other than 
between about 6 and 16 mph (10 and 25 km/h).

The system picks up external interference such as 
other radar sensors from another vehicle or strong 
radio wave transmitted from a facility nearby.

Either corner of the rear bumper is covered with 
snow, ice, mud or dirt.

When there is bad weather.

Your vehicle is on an incline.

Your vehicle is tilted due to a heavy load in the rear.

The rear bumper or the sensors have been 
improperly repaired or the rear bumper has been 
deformed. Have a vehicle checked by a dealer.

For proper operation, always keep the rear bumper 
corner area clean.
Do not cover the rear bumper corner area with labels 
or stickers of any kind.
