You could see a light on your dashboard when the following safety or driver assistance systems are engaged:
Rear Cross Traffic Alert, if equipped, can help you avoid backing into moving vehicles coming behind you from the right or left. It may also help when backing out of parking spaces.
If your vehicle is equipped with Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, it can make gentle steering wheel turns to guide you back into your lane if you unintentionally drift out of it without using your turn signal.
Available Rear Park Assist uses ultrasonic rear bumper sensors to alert you if vehicles or objects are detected up to eight feet behind your vehicle while in reverse at speeds up to 5 mph.
When equipped, Forward Collision Alert can warn you when it detects a front-end collision is imminent with a vehicle ahead that you are following. It also can alert you if you are following a detected vehicle much too closely.
If equipped, Rear Seat Reminder can detect when a rear door is opened and closed during or just before a trip and under certain conditions, provide an alert when you turn off your vehicle that something may be in the backseat.
