Driving and Operating 153
When your vehicle approaches another
detected vehicle too rapidly, the red FCA
display will flash on the windshield. Also,
eight rapid high-pitched beeps will sound
from the front. When this Collision Alert
occurs, the brake system may prepare for
driver braking to occur more rapidly which
can cause a brief, mild deceleration.
Continue to apply the brake pedal as the
driving situation dictates. Cruise control may
be disengaged when the Collision Alert
Tailgating Alert
The vehicle ahead indicator will display
amber when you are following a detected
vehicle ahead much too closely.
Selecting the Alert Timing
The Collision Alert control is on the steering
wheel. Press
[ to set the FCA timing to
Far, Medium, or Near. The first button press
shows the current setting on the Driver
Information Center (DIC). Additional button
presses will change this setting. The chosen
setting will remain until it is changed and
will affect the timing of both the Collision
Alert and the Tailgating Alert features. The
timing of both alerts will vary based on
vehicle speed. The faster the vehicle speed,
the farther away the alert will occur.
Consider traffic and weather conditions
when selecting the alert timing. The range
of selectable alert timings may not be
appropriate for all drivers and driving
Unnecessary Alerts
FCA may provide unnecessary alerts to
turning vehicles, vehicles in other lanes,
objects that are not vehicles, or shadows.
These alerts are normal operation and the
vehicle does not need service.
Cleaning the System
If the FCA system does not seem to operate
properly, this may correct the issue:
Clean the outside of the windshield in
front of the rearview mirror.
Clean the entire front of the vehicle.
Clean the headlamps.
Automatic Emergency
Braking (AEB)
If the vehicle has Forward Collision Alert
(FCA), it also has AEB. When the system
detects a vehicle ahead in your path that is
traveling in the same direction that you
may be about to crash into, it can
automatically brake the vehicle. This can
help avoid or lessen the severity of crashes
when driving in a forward gear. Depending
on the situation, the vehicle may
automatically brake moderately or hard. This
automatic emergency braking can only occur
if a vehicle is detected. This is shown by the
FCA vehicle ahead indicator being lit. See
Forward Collision Alert (FCA) System 0 152.
The system works when driving in a forward
gear between 8 km/h (5 mph) and 60 km/h
(37 mph). It can detect vehicles up to
approximately 60 m (197 ft).
AEB is an emergency crash preparation
feature and is not designed to avoid
crashes. Do not rely on AEB to brake the
