Kia Forte: Forward Collision-avoidance Assist (FCA) (Camera + Radar type) / Sensor to detect the distance from the vehicle in front (front radar/camera)

Kia Forte 2019-2023 (BD) Owners Manual / Driving your vehicle / Forward Collision-avoidance Assist (FCA) (Camera + Radar type) / Sensor to detect the distance from the vehicle in front (front radar/camera)

By detecting the vehicle or pedestrian ahead of the vehicle, the sensor helps to operate the Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist when the vehicle is at risk of a collision.

In order for the FCA system to operate properly, always make sure the sensor or sensor cover is clean and free of dirt, snow, and debris. Dirt, snow, or foreign substances on the lens may adversely affect the sensing performance of the sensor.

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. Radar 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.
