FCW can only apply ~40% of the brake and only for a few seconds before it gives up braking and will let you hurtle to your doom (haha).
When a FCW false alarm happened to me (quite a few times) I just swore at the system and stepped on the accelerator to power over the braking. I have subsequently switched the FCW system to "Near" rather than "Far" and my false alarms are essentially eliminated.
I consider FCW a lame feature until it can bring the vehicle to a stop by itself with zero driver interaction. Oh well, FCW is merely a concomitant "freebie" feature that uses the hardware necessary for ACC, and ACC is the best thing since dopamine release in the nucleus accumbens.
