  • To achieve full system performance you must break in the braking system. See Breaking-In (page 171).

    Failure to take care may result in the loss of control of your vehicle, serious personal injury or death.

  • If the system applies the brakes and the engine stops the hazard warning flashers will automatically turn on.

    Failure to take care may lead to a crash or personal injury.

  • The system does not react to cyclists, motorcyclists, pedestrians, animals or vehicles that are driving in a different direction. Failure to take care may result in the loss of control of your vehicle, serious personal injury or death.
  • The system does not operate during harsh acceleration or steering. Failure to take care may lead to a crash or personal injury.
  • The system may not operate during cold or severe weather conditions.

    Snow, ice, heavy rain and spray can influence the system. Keep the hood free of snow and ice. Failure to take care may result in the loss of control of your vehicle, serious personal injury or death.

  • The system may not operate when driving around sharp curves. Failure to take care may lead to a crash or personal injury.
  • The system may not operate correctly if you replace the windshield with a non-Ford windshield. Do not carry out windshield repairs in front of the sensor. Failure to adhere to this warning may lead to an accident or injury.

    Failure to take care may result in the loss of control of your vehicle, serious personal injury or death.

  • The system will not operate correctly if the sensor is blocked. Keep the windshield free from obstructions, for example, bird droppings, insects, snow or ice. Failure to adhere to this warning may lead to an accident or injury.
  • When you switch the ignition on the sensor transmits a laser beam. Never look directly into the sensor. There is a risk of eye injury.

The sensor is on the rear of the interior mirror. It continuously monitors conditions to decide when to intervene.

The system operates at speeds below approximately 31 mph (50 km/h) by applying the brakes if it detects that a crash is likely. If the system applies the brakes a message will appear in the information display.

The system may reduce the risk of a low speed crash into another vehicle. It also helps reduce impact damage or may avoid the crash completely.
