Hello, I have a 3 month old XC60 AWD. Overall, very happy with car. The BLIS worked very well but about 3 weeks ago the right side light stays on 90% of the time. It is more distracting than helpful and I deactivate it. I brought the car to Volvo and they have had for 2 days. They called to say the diagnostics all came back fine and that the system is just oversensitive which they prefer to it not being sensitive enough. REALLY??? It wasn't over sensitive for the first 2 months. Grrr ... If you have BLIS how is it working?? ANyone else have this issue? Many thanks,

Mine is just less than 3 weeks old. On two occasions, it came up with a warning that Bliss on the left mirror was blocked. I wiped the lense gently with soft towel and it seems OK now. Very strange. Will see if how it goes.

I had this issue and took it in. There is a software update that fixes the issue. I have it fixed a month ago and have not seen the message since it being updated.

I've had my XC60 for about 5-6 weeks and no problems so far. A dirty lens would certainly cause the problem, but I'm sure you or the dealer cleaned the lens.

The BLIS system is meant to be a driivers aid, not a replacement for using safe driving practices like checking your blind spots. As technicians we are not very fond of this system as no two drivers are alike. Some say it's too sensitive,others not sensitive enough. The system also can be adversely affected by natural eliments such as sun glare,fog,frost and rain. I have seen issues of the system making an alert when no vehicle was present and this is usually due to a faulty camera, but not always. The system is a good idea in theory but does have its limits in real world applications. In short, always best to be sure and take that quick peek over your shoulder.
