DS 3. Operating limits. Malfunction

No alert is triggered in the following conditions:

  • presence of stationary objects (e.g. parked vehicles, safety rails, lampposts, signs).
  • vehicles travelling in the opposite direction.
  • on winding roads or in case of sharp turns.
  • when overtaking or being overtaken by a very long vehicle (e.g. truck, bus), which is both detected in a blind spot from behind and present in the driver's field of vision from the front.
  • quick overtaking manoeuvre.
  • very heavy traffic: vehicles detected in front and behind are confused with a lorry or a stationary object.
  • activation of the Park Assist or DS PARK PILOT function.

DS 3. Operating limits. Malfunction The system may be temporarily disturbed by certain climatic conditions (e.g. rain, hail).

In particular, driving on a wet road or going from a dry to a wet area can cause false alerts (e.g. presence of a cloud of water droplets in the blind spot interpreted as a vehicle).

In bad or wintry weather, ensure that the sensors are not covered by mud, ice or snow.

Take care not to cover the warning zone in the door mirrors, or the detection zones on the front and rear bumpers with adhesive labels or other objects; they may hamper correct operation of the system.
