Re: FCW off
The manual sez:
"Forward Collision Warning OFF This light warns the driver of a potential collision with the vehicle in front of you and prompts the driver to take action in order to avoid the collision. For further information, refer to “Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)” in “Understanding The Features Of Your Vehicle”."
The only (relevant?) text from the manual in the ACC Features section is:
"Changing the FCW status to “Off” prevents the system from warning you of a possible collision with the vehicle in front of you. NOTE: In the “Off” setting FCW OFF will be displayed in the EVIC.
• The system will retain the last setting selected by the driver after ignition shut down.
• FCW will not react to irrelevant objects such as overhead objects, ground reflections, objects not in the path of the car, stationary objects that are far away, oncoming traffic, or leading vehicles with the same or higher rate of speed.
• FCW will be disabled like ACC below with the unavailable screens.
Previously, one had to purchase japanese motorcycles to bask in such clear usage of the English language.
