Nissan Maxima Owners Manual: FEB system limitations

WARNING

Listed below are the system limitations for the FEB system. Failure to operate the vehicle in accordance with these system limitations could result in serious injury or death.

The FEB system cannot detect all vehicles under all conditions.

The radar sensor does not detect the following objects:

  • Pedestrians, animals or obstacles in the roadway.
  • Oncoming vehicles.
  • Crossing vehicles.

The radar sensor has some performance limitations. If a stationary vehicle is in the vehicles's path, the FEB system will not function when the vehicle is driven at speeds over approximately 50 mph (80 km/h).

The radar sensor may not detect a vehicle ahead in the following conditions:

  • Dirt, ice, snow or other material covering the radar sensor.
  • Interference by other radar sources.
  • Snow or road spray from traveling vehicles.
  • If the vehicle ahead is narrow (e.g.

    motorcycle).

  • When driving on a steep downhill slope or roads with sharp curves.

In some road or traffic conditions, the FEB system may unexpectedly apply partial braking. When acceleration is necessary, continue to depress the accelerator pedal to override the system.

Braking distances increase on slippery surfaces.

The system is designed to automatically check the sensor's functionality, within certain limitations. The system may not detect some forms of obstructions of the sensor area such as ice, snow, stickers, etc. In these cases, the system may not be able to warn the driver properly.

Be sure that you check, clean and clear the sensor area regularly.

Excessive noise will interfere with the warning chime sound, and the chime may not be heard.
