BSW system operation  - Blind Spot Warning (BSW) system/Blind Spot InterventionTM system (if so 
equipped) - Starting and driving - Infiniti QX Owners Manual - Infiniti QX

If the radar sensors detect vehicles in the

If the radar sensors detect vehicles in the detection zone, the BSW/Blind Spot InterventionTM indicator light located inside the outside mirrors illuminates. If the turn signal is then activated, the BSW/Blind Spot InterventionTM indicator light flashes and a chime sounds twice. The indicator light continues to flash until the detected vehicles leave the detection zone. The BSW/Blind Spot InterventionTM indicator lights illuminate for a few seconds when the ignition switch is pushed to the ON position.

The brightness of the BSW/Blind Spot InterventionTM indicator lights is adjusted automatically depending on the brightness of the ambient light. A chime sounds if the radar sensors have already detected vehicles when the driver activates the turn signal. If a vehicle comes into the detection zone after the driver activates the turn signal, then only the BSW/Blind Spot InterventionTM indicator light flashes and no chime sounds. (See BSW/Blind Spot InterventionTM driving situations later in this section.)
