The following are conditions in which the ICC system may be temporarily unavailable. In these instances, the ICC system may not cancel and may not be able to maintain the selected following distance from the vehicle ahead.

Condition A

Under the following conditions, the ICC system is automatically canceled. A chime will sound and the system will not be able to be set:

  • When the VDC system is turned off
  • When the VDC or ABS (including the TCS) operates
  • When a vehicle ahead is not detected and your vehicle is traveling below the speed of 15 mph (24 km/h)
  • When the system judges the vehicle is at a standstill
  • When the shift lever is not in the D (Drive) or Manual mode
  • When the parking brake is applied
  • When a wheel slips

Action to take

When the conditions listed above are no longer present, turn the system off using the ICC CRUISE switch. Turn the ICC system back on to use the system.

Condition B

When the radar sensor area of the front bumper is covered with dirt or is obstructed, the ICC system will automatically be cancelled. If the sensor area is covered with ice, a transparent or translucent vinyl bag, etc., the ICC system may not detect vehicles ahead. In these instances, the ICC system may not cancel and may not be able to maintain the selected following distance from the vehicle ahead. Be sure to check and clean the sensor area.

The system warning light (orange) will illuminate and the "front radar obstruction" warning message will appear in the vehicle information display.
