I believe the only thing you can code is to make it activate at a lower speed. (15 mph)

I have noticed that the passenger side BSM warning light triangle is MUCH brighter than the driver's side. This leads me to believe that the plastic lens on the driver's side directs the light straight across the interior rather than towards the driver. It is indeed a fault. Have your passenger judge the driver's side brightness the next time you are in a situation with a vehicle in the driver's blind spot. Also, have the passenger describe the brightness on the passenger side. Tell us what you experience. A lens to direct the light directly at the driver would solve the problem without increasing brightness.........your BSM needs corrective lenses

Thanks for the help

I will try to figure that out.
The lights in my unit are very dim. In the day light
with sunglasses, they are useless.

I am wondering, can they put in a brighter bulb?
