NOTE: Full details of system operation are found in the Owner's Manual.
FCM is designed to help reduce the risk of a collision with a vehicle straight ahead of your vehicle. The FCM uses a radar sensor to determine the distance to a vehicle in front and relative speed to that vehicle. The FCM is not designed as an automatic driving system or as a collision avoidance system.
When your vehicle is approaching a vehicle straight ahead in your path and the FCM judges that there is the risk of a collision, the system will give audible and visual warnings. When the FCM judges that a collision with the vehicle straight-ahead is imminent, the system will automatically apply moderate
braking to warn you to apply the brakes immediately.
When the FCM judges that a collision with the vehicle straight-ahead is highly unavoidable,
the system will apply emergency braking to reduce the severity of the collision and, if possible, to avoid the collision. Stop lights are illuminated during automatic braking.
