Cadillac Escalade: Side Blind Zone Alert (SBZA) - Vehicle Features - In Brief - Cadillac Escalade Owner's ManualCadillac Escalade: Side Blind Zone Alert (SBZA)

If available, this feature will alert you to vehicles located in the vehicle's side blind zone. When the system detects a vehicle in the side blind zone, the SBZA display will light up in the corresponding outside side mirror.

The system is enabled at every vehicle startup. It can be disabled through the Driver Information Center (DIC).

If the message SIDE BLIND ZONE SYSTEM UNAVAILABLE appears on the DIC, the system has been disabled because the sensor is blocked and cannot detect vehicles in the blind zone. The sensor may be blocked by mud, dirt, snow, ice, slush, or even heavy rainstorms. This message may also activate during heavy rain or due to road spray. The vehicle does not need service.

See Side Blind Zone Alert (SBZA)   for more information.
