Your Mazda may be equipped with a safety feature that alerts you to the presence of vehicles in the blind spot. This article shows you how to adjust its settings.
How Mazda’s Blind Spot Monitoring works
Mazda’s Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) uses radars mounted in the rear bumper to detect vehicles approaching from behind and in the adjacent lane. It alerts drivers to the presence of vehicles in the blind spot on either side by displaying an icon in the appropriate door mirror. If the driver indicates to change lanes with a vehicle in the blind spot, the icon flashes and a warning beep is sounded.
How to adjust BSM alerts volume
- Select Settings on the home screen.
- Then select the Safety tab.
- Select Blind Spot Monitoring System.
- Choose between High, Low or Off to completely turn off the volume for alerts.
