Changing FCW Status

The FCW feature can be set to far, set to near or turned off using the Uconnect Touch™ System, refer to “Uconnect Touch™ Settings” in “Understanding Your Instrument Panel” for further information. The FCW Status Off, Near or Far will be displayed in the Uconnect Touch™ display.

The default status of FCW is the “Far” setting, this allows the system to warn you of a possible collision with the vehicle in front of you when you are farther away. This gives you the most reaction time.

Changing the FCW status to the “Near” setting, allows the system to warn you of a possible collision with the vehicle in front of you when you are much closer. This setting provides less reaction time than the “Far” setting, which allows for a more dynamic driving experience.

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 on the Uconnect Touch™ display.
• 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.
