Kia Forte 2019-2021 (BD) Owners Manual / Driving your vehicle / Forward Collision-avoidance Assist (FCA) / FCA front view camera sensor

The sensor is designed to maintain a certain distance from the front end of the vehicle.

However, a sensor covered or dirty with foreign substances, such as dirt or snow, adversely affects the sensing performance. It may even temporarily cancel the FCA. Always keep the sensor and its external parts clean.

Warning message and warning light

When the sensor is covered or the sensor lens is dirty with foreign substances, such as snow or rain, the FCA system may not be able to detect vehicles. In this situation, a warning message ("Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) system disabled. Camera blocked") will appear to notify the driver. Remove the foreign substances to allow the FCA system to function property.

This is not a malfunction with the FCA. To operate the FCA again, remove the foreign substances.

The FCA may not properly operate in an area (e.g. open terrain), where vehicles or objects are not detected after turning ON the engine.
