Nissan Altima Owners Manual: Moving Object Detection (MOD) (if so equipped)

The Moving Object Detection (MOD) system can inform the driver of moving objects behind the vehicle when backing out of garages, maneuvering in parking lots and in other such instances.

The MOD system detects moving objects by using image processing technology on the image shown in the display.

When the shift lever is in the R (Reverse) position and the vehicle speed is approximately 5 MPH (8 km/h) or less, theMODsystem detects moving objects in the rearview or rear-wide view. The MOD system will not operate if the trunk is open.

WARNING

● The MOD system is not a substitute for proper vehicle operation and does not prevent contact with the objects surrounding the vehicle. When maneuvering, always use the outside mirror and rear view mirror and turn and look to check the surroundings to make sure it is safe to maneuver.

● The MOD system is not designed to detect surrounding stationary objects.

If the MOD system detects moving objects behind the vehicle, a yellow frame will be displayed on the camera image and a chime sounds.

When strong light such as another vehicles headlight or sunlight is present.

When there is dirt, water drops or snow on the camera lens.

● The MOD system might detect something like flowing water droplets on the camera lens, white smoke from the muffler, moving shadows, etc.

● The MOD system may not function properly depending on the speed, direction, distance or shape of the moving objects.

● If your vehicle sustains damage to the parts where the camera is installed, leaving it misaligned or bent, the sensing zone may be altered and the MOD system may not detect objects properly.

When the yellow MOD icon is displayed in the view, the system is not functioning properly. This will not hinder normal driving operation but the system should be inspected by a NISSAN dealer.
