Kia Niro: Blind spot detection / Lane change assist / Warning message

The message (“Blind Spot Detection disabled temporarily”) will appear to notify the driver if there are foreign substances on the rear bumper or it is hot near the rear bumper. The light on the switch and the system will be turned off automatically.

Remove the foreign substance on the rear bumper.

After the foreign substance is removed, if you drive for approximately 10 minutes, the system will work normally.

If the system does not work normally even though the foreign substance is removed, take your vehicle to an authorized Kia dealer and have the system checked.

It is possible to get the message with no foreign substance on the rear bumper, for example, when driving in sparse rural or open area, such as desert, where there is insufficient data for operation.

This message may also activate during heavy rain or due to road spray. In this case, the vehicle does not need service.

If the system does not work properly, a warning message (“Check BSD System”) will appear and the light on the switch will turn off. The system will turn off automatically.

We recommend you to have the system checked by an authorized Kia dealer.
