What is a Blind Spot Monitor?

No matter what type of vehicle you drive, you have a blind spot. The blind spot is that place behind and beside you that your rearview mirrors do not cover. Most modern vehicles come equipped with blind spot monitors.

A blind spot monitor consists of a series of sensors riding on the side of your car or truck. The sensors are equipped with a radar or sonar device that seeks any movement toward the rear of your vehicle. The sensors send a signal to an alert mechanism which may be a visual alert signal on your rearview or side view mirrors or an audio alert through your driver information system.

Before you go out on the highway, test your blind spot monitor while cruising Santa Barbara. If you notice any areas not covered by the monitor, bring your vehicle to DCH Lexus of Santa Barbara for a quick sensor system adjustment.
