Forward collision Alert

Post by Angus1 » Fri Oct 12, 2018 10:21 am

Whilst driving last night a message popped up on the dash to say the forward collision alert was unavailable never seen that before is this normal ? I tried afterward driving towards parked cars and nothing usually it’s quite sensitive. It’s currently in the garage because the indicators aren’t cancelling so they are going to check it out.

Coincidentaly I saw this for the first time today as well. Weather was fine if a little windy. Seemed ok after a restart.

This thread is probably where you need to be, the last two pages are the ones to read. viewtopic.php?f=11&t=3803&start=40

I would hope the dealers would all be aware of this by now, mine was sorted last April.

I had the same issue. Its a known issue, vauxhall have a fix of a different bracket for the camera which mounts to the windscreen. It should allow air to prevent the camera from misting with condensation. I had the fix carried out this summer so haven't had a chance to see if it works on a cold day. Anyone had the repair. Has it solved the issue?

Mine was done in April, not had the problem since but it's not been used much.

Thanks it’s rectified it’s self must have been the weather, but will be keeping an eye on it and reporting it to my dealer if it becomes a regular issue.

I'd report it anyway. My experience is that it kept happening on cold days, even after driving for over an hour it would pop up with a message as the camera had misted even though window demist was on. Have them fit the update before your warranty runs out!
