Lincoln Aviator: Blind Spot Information System / Blind Spot Information System with Trailer Tow (If Equipped)

Lincoln Aviator. Blind Spot Information System with Trailer Tow (If Equipped)

The design of the system is to aid you in detecting vehicles that could have entered the detection area zone (A). The detection area is on both sides of your vehicle and trailer, extending rearward from the exterior mirrors to the end of your trailer. When you attach and have setup a trailer, the blind spot information system with trailer tow becomes active when driving forward above 6 mph (10 km/h).

You can switch the system off in the information display. If you switch the blind spot information system off, blind spot information system with trailer tow turns off.

Setting up a Trailer

You can setup a trailer through the information display.

Note: Measure the width of the trailer at the front of the trailer, not the widest point. The maximum width that the system can support is 8.2 ft (2.5 m)(B).

Note: The trailer length is the distance between the trailer hitch ball and the rear of the trailer. The maximum length that the system can support is 33 ft (10 m)(A).

When setting up a trailer, a sequence of screens appear asking for trailer information:

  • Select trailer screen: None, Trailer A, Trailer B or Trailer C.

Note: You can select only one trailer on small information displays.

Select one of the trailers and press OK. The menu goes to the next screen.

  • Width less than 8.2 ft (2.5 m) and length less than 33 ft (10 m)?

Note: You do not need to enter an exact trailer width measurement. You only need to confirm that the width of the trailer is 8.2 ft (2.5 m) or less.

If no, the system turns off.

If yes, the menu goes to the next screen.

  • Enter length of trailer:

Toggling up or down using the menu buttons increases or decreases the measurement by 3 ft (1 m). Select a length that is equal to or within 3 ft (1 m) of the actual measured length. For example, if the actual measured length is 25 ft (7.6 m), toggle the length in the menu to 8 m or 27 ft. When you enter the length of the trailer, this saves the system setup.

Note: When you connect a trailer, but do not setup a trailer in the blind spot information system, the system turns off and a warning appears in the information display.

Note: If the trailer is a bike rack or cargo rack with electrical lighting, enter a length of 3 ft (1 m). Cross Traffic Alert remains on for trailers with a length of 3 ft (1 m) or less.

Note: The system requires proper measurement and measurement entry to function as designed.

System Operation

If you select a trailer in the information display prior to connecting a trailer, the system loads that configuration and the information display shows a message when you connect the trailer. A second message appears stating cross traffic alert is off, unless a trailer is set up with a length of 3 ft (1 m). The blind spot information system with trailer tow still functions normally when driving forward.

If you connect a trailer, a message appears indicating that you attached a trailer. If you have not selected a trailer previously, another message appears requesting you to select one of the trailers in the list or add a new trailer. The blind spot information system with trailer tow does not function without a trailer selected. If you do not select a trailer, a message appears in the information display stating it has deactivated the system. This message might not appear until your vehicle speed reaches 22 mph (35 km/h).

The blind spot information system with trailer tow activates when driving forward for that particular trailer set up. If you cycle the ignition, the blind spot information system with trailer tow continues to function using the last trailer you selected.

Trailer Considerations

The system works with a trailer with a front width of 8.2 ft (2.5 m) or less, and a total length from the trailer hitch ball to the rear of the trailer of 33 ft (10 m) or less.

Some trailers could cause a slight change in system performance:

  • Wide box trailers, especially those wider than the towing vehicle, could cause false alerts to occur when driving next to infrastructure or near parked cars. A false alert could also occur while making a 90-degree turn or driving through a roundabout.
  • Wide trailers that have a total length greater than 20 ft (6 m) could cause delayed alerts when a vehicle is passing at high speeds.
  • Box trailers that have a width greater than 8.2 ft (2.5 m) could cause early alerts when you pass a vehicle.
  • Clam shell or V-Nose box trailers with a width greater than 8.2 ft (2.5 m) could cause delayed alerts when a vehicle traveling the same speed as your vehicle merges lanes.
