You can approach a parked car and steer around it or apply the brakes later than you normally would/should and you will get the warning.

When a car in front of you is making a turn, you can continue towards it and steer around it at.

You can steer towards any obstacle such as a tree, building wall, guardrail, or anything of your choice for that matter.

If working properly, the warning will be in enough time to allow you to apply the brakes. If the warning doesn't allow enough time to apply the brakes, the FCW system would be useless.

Two things to keep in mind:

1. you must be going over 10 MPH.
2. You must not have your foot on the brake pedal during the test (FCW will be disabled).


i am glad you're not a driving instructor

Enforcer (downunder) has his going now. From what I recall they replaced the front radar.

Re: Forward Collision Warning (FCW)

Hey guys , just joined the site and noticed some problems discussed with the FCW and ACC. I have had the problem with the ACC dropping out and then the FCW light coming on, also displays clean radar sensor in the front.

I have fixed these issues on mine by doing the following, this also may help your problems-

Remove the bracket that holds the radar to the front of the vehicle with the radar unit attached. With a vernier caliper adjust the radar module via the three adjusting screws to sit parallel with the bracket. This ensures the unit is looking squarely down the road ahead. These adjusting screws adjust through a plastic keeper which can be moved off line by a small inpact etc.
Ensure that the plastic water line that supplies water to the headlight sprays is securely located and unable to be move across intermittently being detected by the radar.

Cheers

Would like to hear your outcomes

Yammie

Re: Forward Collision Warning (FCW)

My 2011 did the same thing...they changed the 800$ sensor in the front under warranty...been fine ever since.
