Nissan Maxima Owners Manual: FEB system operation
1. Vehicle ahead detection indicator
2. FEB warning indicator
3. FEB system warning light
The FEB system will function when your vehicle is driven at speeds above approximately 3 mph (5 km/h).
If a risk of a forward collision is detected, the FEB system will provide an initial warning to the driver by both a visual and audible alert.
If the driver applies the brakes quickly and forcefully after the warning, and the FEB system detects that there is still the possibility of a forward collision, the system will automatically increase the braking force. If the driver does not take action, the FEB system issues the second visual warning (red) and audible warning and also applies partial braking.
If the risk of a collision becomes imminent, the FEB system applies harder braking automatically.
The vehicle's brake lights come on when braking is performed by the forward emergency braking system.
Depending on vehicle speed and distance to the vehicle ahead, as well as driving and roadway conditions, the system may help the driver avoid a forward collision or may help mitigate the consequences of a collision, should one be unavoidable.
If the driver is handling the steering wheel, accelerating or braking, the FEB system will function later or will not function.
The automatic braking will cease under the following conditions:
- When the steering wheel is turned as far as necessary to avoid a collision.
- When the accelerator pedal is depressed.
- When there is no longer a vehicle detected ahead.
If the FEB system has stopped the vehicle, the vehicle will remain at a standstill for approximately 2 seconds before the brakes are released.
