Nissan Maxima Owners Manual: System temporarily unavailable
When radar blockage is detected, the system will be deactivated automatically. The "Side Radar Obstruction" warning message will appear and the BSW/RCTA indicator (white) will blink A in the vehicle information display.
The system is not available until the conditions no longer exist.
The radar sensors may be blocked by temporary ambient conditions such as splashing water, mist or fog. The blocked condition may also be caused by objects such as ice, frost or dirt obstructing the radar sensors.
If the BSW system stops working, the RCTA system (if so equipped) will also stop working. Action to take:
When the above conditions no longer exist, the system will resume automatically.
If the BSW system malfunctions, it will turn off automatically. The system malfunction warning message with the BSW/RCTA indicator (orange) will appear in the vehicle information display.
If the BSW system stops working, the RCTA system (if so equipped) will also stop working.
Action to take:
Stop the vehicle in a safe location, place the vehicle in the P (Park) position, turn the engine off and restart the engine. If the message continues to appear, have the system checked. It is recommended that you visit a NISSAN dealer for this service.
