Adaptive Cruise Control Failure

Anyone come across ACC failures?

I was on the F3 Sydney - Newcastle freeway, ACC set at 110km and noticed after about 60 mins that I was dropping below the set 110 speed.

Switched ACC on/off and got message "ACC Unavailable Vehicle System Error" and also orange "FCW OFF" message that remained on.

Tried stopping, switching off and opening drivers door but nothing.

Continued the rest of trip without ACC and with the "FCW OFF" message remaining lit.

Arrived at destination and after approx 60 min returned to Sydney with both ACC and FCW systems functioning!!!!

Mongoose9400 is an unknown quantity at this point
I've seen in the OM that the ACC can get blocked by snow or sometimes bright direct sunlight IIRC that can cause temporary lose.

Re: Adaptive Cruise Control Failure

I too had a similar issue when I was on a dirt road with the FWC light showed, I unthought that the radar was dusty, after we got onto a sealed road it worked ok.
Just keeping a eye on this to see if it happens again.
