FORWARD ALERT FUNCTION

WARNING

The forward alert function may not react to slow moving vehicles.

WARNING

The forward alert function uses the same radar sensor as adaptive cruise control. The same performance limitations apply. See ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL OVERVIEW.

The forward alert function provides limited detection and warning of objects close ahead, while the vehicle is moving forward. When the function is active, a warning lamp displays in the instrument panel. See FORWARD ALERT (GREEN).

If a vehicle or object is detected in the user defined sensitivity area, a warning tone sounds. The message FORWARD ALERT also displays in the instrument panel. If this occurs, the driver should take appropriate action immediately.

The sensitivity of the forward alert function can be adjusted when adaptive cruise control is switched off.

To reduce the sensitivity, press the < - > button on the adaptive cruise control steering wheel controls. When pressed, the current setting displays in the instrument panel, accompanied by the message FWD ALERT < - - - >. Press the < - > button again, to reduce the sensitivity.

To increase the sensitivity, press the < - - - > button on the adaptive cruise control steering wheel controls. When pressed, the current setting displays in the instrument panel, accompanied by the message FWD ALERT < - - - >. Press the < - - - > button again, to increase the sensitivity.

NOTES

The new forward alert function setting is retained when the vehicle’s ignition is switched off.

The forward alert function can be switched on and off via the Driver Assistance menu in the instrument panel. See INSTRUMENT PANEL.
