WARNING

Listed below are the system limitations for the RCTA system. Failure to operate the vehicle in accordance with these system limitations could result in serious injury or death.

  • Always check surroundings and turn to check what is behind you before backing up. The radar sensors detect approaching (moving) vehicles. The radar sensors cannot detect every object such as:
    • Pedestrians, bicycles, motorcycles, animals or child-operated toy vehicles
    • A vehicle that is passing at speeds greater than approximately 19 mph (30 km/h)
    • A vehicle that is passing at speeds lower than approximately 5 mph (8 km/h)
  • The radar sensors may not detect approaching vehicles in certain situations:
    • Illustration Nissan Murano. RCTA system limitations : When a vehicle parked next to you obstructs the beam of the radar sensor.
    • Illustration Nissan Murano. RCTA system limitations : When the vehicle is parked in an angled parking space.
    • Illustration Nissan Murano. RCTA system limitations : When the vehicle is parked on inclined ground.
    • Illustration Nissan Murano. RCTA system limitations : When an approaching vehicle turns into your vehicle’s parking lot aisle.
    • Illustration Nissan Murano. RCTA system limitations : When the angle formed by your vehicle and approaching vehicle is small.
  • The following conditions may reduce the ability of the radar to detect other vehicles:
    • Severe weather
    • Road spray
    • Ice/frost/snow/dirt build-up on the vehicle
  • Do not attach stickers (including transparent material), install accessories or apply additional paint near the radar sensors. These conditions may reduce the ability of the radar to detect other vehicles.
  • Excessive noise (e.g., audio system volume, open vehicle window) will interfere with the chime sound, and it may not be heard.
