Precautions on vehicle-to-vehicle distance control mode

Precautions on vehicle-to-vehicle distance control mode  - Intelligent cruise control (ICC) system (Full Speed Range) (if so equipped) - Starting and driving - Infiniti JX Owners Manual - Infiniti JX

The system is intended to enhance the operation of the vehicle when following a vehicle traveling in the same lane and direction.

The system is intended to enhance the operation of the vehicle when following a vehicle traveling in the same lane and direction.

If the distance sensor A detects a slower moving vehicle ahead, the system will reduce the vehicle speed so that your vehicle follows the vehicle in front at the selected distance.

The system automatically controls the throttle and applies the brakes (up to 25% of vehicle braking power) if necessary.

The detection range of the sensor is approximately 490 ft (150 m) ahead.

WARNING
● This system is only an aid to assist the driver and is not a collision warning or avoidance device. It is the driverТs responsibility to stay alert, drive safely and be in control of the vehicle at all times.
● The system is primarily intended for use on straight, dry, open roads with light traffic. It is not advisable to use the system in city traffic or congested areas.
● This system will not adapt automatically to road conditions. This system should be used in evenly flowing traffic.

Do not use the system on roads with sharp curves, or on icy roads, in heavy rain or in fog.

The distance sensor will not detect the following objects:

● Stationary and slow moving vehicles
● Pedestrians or objects in the roadway
● Oncoming vehicles in the same lane
● Motorcycles traveling offset in the travel lane

WARNING
● As there is a performance limit to the distance control function, never rely solely on the Intelligent Cruise Control system. This system does not correct careless, inattentive or absent-minded driving, or overcome poor visibility in rain, fog, or other bad weather. Decelerate the vehicle speed by depressing the brake pedal, depending on the distance to the vehicle ahead and the surrounding circumstances in order to maintain a safe distance between vehicles.
● If the vehicle ahead comes to a stop, the vehicle decelerates to a standstill within the limitations of the system. The system will cancel once it judges that the vehicle has come to a standstill and sound a warning chime. To prevent the vehicle from moving, the driver must depress the brake pedal.
● The system may not detect the vehicle in front of you in certain road or weather conditions. To avoid accidents, never use the Intelligent Cruise Control system under the following conditions:

Ц On roads where the traffic is heavy or there are sharp curves
Ц On slippery road surfaces such as on ice or snow, etc.
Ц During bad weather (rain, fog, snow, etc.)

When the windshield wipers are operating at low (LO) or high speed (HI), the Intelligent Cruise Control system is automatically canceled. If the vehicle is equipped with a rain-sensing auto wiper, the system may cancel when the wipers are operating at the AUTO speed.

Ц When rain, snow or dirt adhere to the bumper around the system sensor
Ц On steep downhill roads (the vehicle may go beyond the set vehicle speed and frequent braking may result in overheating the brakes)
Ц On repeated uphill and downhill roads
Ц When traffic conditions make it difficult to keep a proper distance between vehicles because of frequent acceleration or deceleration

● Do not use the Intelligent Cruise Control system if you are towing a trailer.

The system may not detect a vehicle ahead.
● In some road or traffic conditions, a vehicle or object can unexpectedly come into the sensor detection zone and cause automatic braking. You may need to control the distance from other vehicles using the accelerator pedal. Always stay alert and avoid using the ICC system when it is not recommended in this section.
