On LaneSense, I did have a case on an expressway in a construction zone where there was a lane shift and the lane markers had not been finished properly and the system almost steered me into the 18-wheeler next to me. I decided to turn off LaneSense when going through construction zones, but don't do it anymore since I understand the system better now. Instead, I grip the wheel in construction zones prepared to assert my will as necessary.
On FCW, the radar attempts to lock on to the vehicle in front. If that vehicle turns into a driveway for example and the system doesn't detect you taking any braking action, even though you know there is no chance of hitting that vehicle, the system can only presume you are following that vehicle into the driveway and will flash warnings and sound alarms and even apply the brakes. When the driver understands how the system works, he/she can anticipate those conditions and slightly step on the accelerator which overrides the FCW system.
These systems are excellent for assisting in safe driving, but as with most any system, there are idiosyncrasies that when understood can be dealt with to the operator's advantage.
All the lights flashing on your dash is definitely a problem that needs to be addressed. Could be an electrical problem such as a loose ground somewhere.
